Dr. Who Meets Jayne Cobb

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?

From Tricking & Treating to Easter Basket, TARDIS!

From Tricking & Treating to Easter Basket, TARDIS! 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).

Winter is Coming

With the season 2 premiere of Game of Thrones tonight, I felt the need to find some crafts inspired by this amazing series (both books and tv show). After searching Etsy, I was automatically drawn to the bracelet made by Luna Designs 101.

The House of Stark bracelet is a very simple and understated piece of jewelry that any Game Of Thrones fan would be happy to having in their collection. The small wolf charm on the end of a cord, is enough for the wearer to know what it means and feel like they’re keeping it a secret.
