The One Ring Scarf

“One Ring to rule them all

One Ring to find them

One Ring to bring them all

And in the darkness, bind them.”

– J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings.

Look at this amazing Lord of the Rings The One Ring Scarf! This one was made by Iamrobot on Ravelry (there are loads more made from the same pattern, but this is my favourite one), and the pattern is by Diana Stafford and free to download from Ravelry!  I can’t knit, but after finding this, I wish I could! It is simply amazing! I wonder if I could use the same pattern chart in crochet?

Cursed Mr Drippy Amigurumi

Cursed Mr Drippy

After my post a few weeks ago featuring the Mr Drippy Amigurumi on Kitten’s Crafts, I decided I wanted to make myself one, and then make a cursed version of Mr Drippy (before he comes to life!) So, with permission, I adapted the pattern to make my very own cursed Mr Drippy amigurumi pattern!

Please DO NOT sell anything made from this pattern. I do not own the rights to the character Mr. Drippy and so it would be illegal to make profit from it. Also, part of this pattern is by Jastra Alethea on Kitten’s Crafts, and she has asked that nothing made from her pattern, which is freely available, is sold. Make them for yourself or as a gift, but please, do not sell them! Thank you!

DIY Handsome Jack papercraft mask

Borderlands 2 has some amazing characters, but the one I loved the most was definitely Handsome Jack.  I was checking out the Borderlands 2 forums recently and came across an old post where user botman made an awesome paper craft Handsome Jack mask.  I scrolled through some of the comments and to my surprise (and delight) he provides instructions later in the thread.

DIY Handsome Jack Mask

I will let his post speak for itself, however he does warn that this is an advanced paper craft and that beginner and intermediate users may have trouble with it.

What are you waiting for?  Visit the thread to download the instructions and you too can rule Pandora.
