For those of you who don’t know (I didn’t, and I embroider!) this type of 3 dimensional embroidery is called stumpwork, and it’s formed by using wire to help support your embroidered piece. This little baby has (to date) amassed 6 pages of comments since the 16th January. It’s really blown our minds over on the needlework board, I’d never seen stumpwork before, and to see it used in such a contemporary way is truly stunning. this hoop is only 3 (or 4?) inches wide, this is a tiny tiny bundle of AWESOME!!
Cinnamoon has by far the best suggestion: “That’s amazing. It would be really cool to have a whole row of them at different heights so that it would look like a sea monster was coming through the wall.”, you’re not wrong Cinnamoon!!
“Look, Mr. B!”
I squealed like a Little Sister when I saw this simple, yet striking Bioshock embroidery.
Craftster member lostinwonderland stitched up the design from one of the posters found in the Little Wonders level of the video game. A deceptively sweet image for such a sinister purpose…
I want this hat. I NEED this hat. But I can’t knit, and I don’t know anyone who can do fair isle. I have tried to learn to knit, just so I can make this hat (I’m hopeless). Carol Schoenfelder posted this Stargate beanie over at Ravelry, and I truly think it’s the greatest hat ever. She used the gate symbols as well as traditional fair isle patterns, making this subtly geeky and incredible cool.
There’s a free tutorial on her Ravelry page, which means someone can make this for me, right? Pretty please?
Perhaps what I find most charming about these soaps is that they are scented to smell like Mountain Dew! This is truly a seller who’s in touch with her geek consumer base. The soaps are even vegan.
Who knew you could make something pretty out of old electronic components?
Pibbles takes the pieces, assembles them and adds Swarovski crystals and voila! Gorgeous and geeky jewelry appears!
It’s sure to make your fellow girl geeks jealous!
