In December GeekCrafts brought your attention to Angry Birds Plushie by Obsessively Stitching and today we bring you Amigurumi Angry Birds Pig Pattern by The Itsy Bitsy Spider amigurumi-Crochet. But it doesn’t stop there! She has also made the Angry Birds goldfinch to go along with the pig, and she has an amigurumi pattern for the cardinal available in ravelry. I’m personally tempted to make a bunch, fill them with beans, and set up elaborate constructions with the pigs to knock down with the birds. Sounds like a great party game to me!
Continuing my trend of catching up on last year’s must-see films, I finally sat down to watch Inception. Holy moly, did it blow my mind! Visuals, characters, story, it had it all, not to mention an ending that will have you mulling for days.
Amber Whitney, a Juneau, Alaska-based illustrator, captured two of my favorite Inception characters – Eames and Arthur – in this eye-catching block print. I can’t decide what I like the best, the shadows of their faces, the details of their clothes, or the maze-like style of the ampersands.
It’s absolutely perfect. The hands look amazing! It’s done on painted 18-count white aida, which is a fantastic idea. I may try that the next time I want to do a cross stitch on black (so I can see what I’m doing).
Luckily, there’s a MST3K fansite that has instructions on how to construct Tom Servo! It looks like attempts were started on Crow and Gypsy, but the website hasn’t been updated since 2006 so I wouldn’t hold my breath on those. Tom looks great though! The anonymous builder admits that this is his first attempt at building one of the bots, but I wasn’t really able to tell.
If you want to give bot building a shot, but fiber arts are more your thing, Craftster member MageAkyla has instructions about how to crochet a chibi Tom Servo.In this version, he’s just a few inches tall and so cute!
I love the creativity and enthusiasm of MST3K fans! If you have any of your own related crafts, please let us know about them!
Cool Like That does custom orders too, so if this one doesn’t fit your phone, she can make you one that will!
