Starbug Tshirt

Hi there folks!

Hope you have all had a good new year and sticking to those new year resolutions.

Today I have this amazing stenciled tshirt featuring Starbug from Red Dwarf.

This creative piece as made by EllieJay from Craftster.

She also shows a great cyclist design done the the same splatter style which is very effective. I would love to try this out myself.

    Muppet Busters

    With the latest Muppet movie in theaters, my children have more than a bit of Muppet Mania. My son yells “ANIMAL!” as he madly air drums and my little girl sings MaNa MaNa as she skips down the hallway. Having grown up with the Muppet Show, this just makes my heart sing!

    And then, I found this piece of art in monkeyminion’s etsy. Muppets meets Mythbusters. Put the two together and you have Muppet Busters!

    I think the Muppet version of Jaime is spot on and doesn’t Adam make a great Crazy Harry?

    Creative Cross-Stitch, Nerdy Needlework

    While I haven’t really done any cross-stitching since about the age of eight, I can appreciate it as an arts-and-craft-form. Done properly and on an interesting subject, and it can be pretty damn impressive. (My mother once re-created this iconic La Dame aux Camelias Mucha poster with spectacular results. Just wish I had a photo to show you!) Anyway, tangent aside, I have found some awesome cross-stitch patterns on The Crafty Companion’s Etsy shop. She creates and sells patterns on an array of geek themes from Doctor Who to Game of Thrones, Firefly to Harry Potter. Very cute, not to mention reasonably priced. ($3 per pattern seems like a good deal to me!)

    Futurama Crochet Doll Patterns!

    Okay, okay.  As 2012 breathes down our neck and we think about the future, what better to get you feeling cozy about it then some Futurama dolls?

    Admittedly, I’m not linking to anyone but myself  (Hooked Hands) today, but I used to sell these Nibbler and Leela dolls on Etsy, and the powers that be (the lawyers representing Futurama) told me and everyone else on Etsy to stop selling Futurama inspired crafts.  They cannot however keep me from giving away those patterns to you!  I wrote them up and put them on my blog, so I decided to share them here. Happy New Year everyone!

    I choose you, Bulbasaur!

    Over the past year or so, we’ve seen pixelated Spock quilts and then it morphed into Mario afghans. Now, SoreLoser has taken it one step further. WOW!, her afghan is amazing!

    SoreLoser has created Bulbasaur in large crochet form! Being a relative newcomer to crochet, the amount of individual little squares needed to create this piece boggles my mind. I give her an A++ for Vision AND Perseverance!

    Chevron Seven Locked!

    Stargate SG-1 was one of the first geeky tv shows I ever became addicted to. That being said, I often find myself searching for cool crafty things that will help me show my love of this amazing exploration team. However, Stargate merchandise is fairly expensive, and crafts that have Stargate ties are few and far between.

    So to help you on your journey to Stargate fandom-ness, here are a few things I’ve found that help show off our favorite wormhole jumping teams.


    1: Stargate Themed Refrigerator Magnets
    So that every time you open your fridge to get your filling of blue jell-o, you can be reminded of this amazing show.


    2. Stargate Atlantis Chevron Earrings.
    The Atlantis gate has always been my personal favorite gate. So these earrings that show off the Atlantis Chevron are at the top of my Stargate fan must-have list.


    3: Jaffa Necklace
    A beautiful handmade necklace with the Jaffa symbol


    4: Stargate, For a Good Time Dial…
    Looking for a way to lure that special geek? Wear this shirt. Achievement Unlocked!


    5: Hello SG-1
    What’s cuter than a Hello Kitty with a Jaffa symbol on their head? Nothing, I tell you.


    6: Replicator Pendant
    Be careful with this one, it’s a bit dangerous. Also, it’s kind of awesome.


    7: SG-1 bag
    This bag makes you easily recognizable to all the other Stargate fans.

    8: Stargate Ring.
    A great ring to wear when traveling to other planets. It lets the aliens know where your from. Though sometimes, that might be not be a good thing.

    With all of this gear, you’re ready for a battle with a Wraith/Ori/Gou’ld…. Or at least ready to have a major Stargate marathon.
