While watching Battlestar Galactica, Steph saw Starbuck’s mandala and thought it would make an awesome hat. (She was right!) She says,
The colors and design are great, and it’s the perfect fandom knit; people who watch the show will probably get it, but those who don’t will just think it’s an awesome hat.
Get the pattern and instructions on Steph’s blog.
As a side note – this was our first ever reader submission! If you want some exposure for your Geek Craft, tell us about it!
More than meets the eye? Robyn Lee of Required Eating posted this picture of Optimus Prime made out of cans, taken by Matt Boulton. Apparently, there’s an annual contest in Vancouver where artists make all sorts of amazing sculptures from canned food. After the event, it’s all donated to food banks. They’ve got pictures of entries from the past four years – definitely worth a look.
Our first Weekend 10 installment is all about everyone’s favorite Star Wars droid, R2-D2.
1. R2-D2 Cake
Flickr user sugarlipscakes made this R2-D2 cake for Dave’s 30th birthday. Dave’s a lucky man.
2. R2-D2 PC Case Mod
The Contaminated posted this incredible R2-D2 case modification. Unfortunately, there’s no instructions or further information. Not that any of us mere mortals could duplicate this amazing feat of engineering anyway.
Cook long and prosper?
Flickr user Nix Sidhe made this ridiculously awesome Spock apron for her boyfriend. Star Trek fans who also cook, rejoice! I’m dying to know if she found fabric with a giant Spock or if she had some other clever way of making it so big.
David Pinch, a customer of the Isotope comic book shop in San Francisco created this amazing X-Men comic book quilt. There are NO details on how he did it though… are those real comic book pages in there? Are they iron-ons? Just how did he do it????
I’m not really sure why a second X Files movie is being made. Wasn’t the first X Files movie kind of… bad compared to the TV show? Is that blasphemy? Anyway, something fun comes from anticipation of the new movie: Craftster user sydneysunray’s keychain plushies. Sydney sewed a little Mulder and a little Sculley out of felt.
