For those of us dating/marrying geeks, its hard to find a way to show our geekiness in a fun but easy way that won’t distract from the event as a whole. If you don’t want a cake in the shape of the Millennium Falcon, or to carry around a storm trooper helmet to prom, try these:
Made by Kristylynn84 on Instructables.com, she goes through each step individually on how to make Star Wars inspired Boutonnieres. These boutonnieres certainly wouldn’t detract from the wedding, and would definitely give you brownie points with your geeky date to the prom.
Unfortunately, the tragically short-lived TV series “Firefly” wasn’t on the air long enough to do a crossover episode, but clever crafter came up with the idea to do a Firefly/Dr. Who mashup project: a knit Jayne Cobb hat done in Dr. Who scarf colors. She (HolyNarf?) calls it her “Doctor Jayne” hat.
The effect is so subtle that most would probably not recognize that it’s Doctor Who colors, even if they might recognize the Jayne Cobb hat style. And the colors are definitely male-friendly, which I love – it can be hard to find manly hat patterns. At least for my men. Do you ever have the same problem? Would this hat make the “acceptable crafting” list for a man in your life? Or maybe yourself?
That’s what is so wonderful about the TARDIS, time becomes wibbly, wobbly and what you thought worked as a Halloween TARDIS Trick or Treat Tote would be equally appropriate as an Easter Basket for your favorite Companion as you travel through time.
This free tote pattern is the creation of Jennifer Ofenstein of Sewhooked who was inspired by a request for a TARDIS bag from her daughter. With some felt, thread and ingenuity, Jennifer came up with a tote that can hold so many wonderful things, not just candy (though it really is the perfect place for hiding that chocolate stash).
Today I took a good look round the internet for a good geeky craft project to cheer everyone up on such a drizzly day like today (the weather is quite depressing over here today). My efforts have been fruitful! I have found this amazing TARDIS sock monkey made by kwiltykate for skittlebub on Craftster.
