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.
Craftster user Falwyn crocheted these super cute Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dolls for her kids, based on Atsuko’s pattern. Falwyn made the shells differently than Atsuko, and provided those directions in her post. Personally, I would have made the shells bigger, but all in all, this would make a great little gift for geeks large and small.
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.
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.
Beware Cylons. Craftster user Bunny in a Bear made this Battlestar Galactica logo t-shirt. He ironed on freezer paper as a stencil. This method has been making the Internet rounds for the past year or so. Freezer paper stencils are like single-use silk screens.
Craftster.org user subloke made this Transformers toque based on Baigneuse’s version, who made hers based on Flickr user twosixteen’s chart. Subloke even made the Transformers hat reversible – one side has Autobot and Decepticon icons and the other side says “more than meets the eye.”
She was even kind enough to post the pattern and instructions to the Transformers hat so anyone with the skillz can make one too!
