enemyairship just posted for the first time on Craftster and she’s starting off good! She crocheted this 8-bit Mario Raccoon (my favorite Mario!) rug as a birthday present for her boyfriend. And it’s huge – 7 feet! Click through for some in progress photos as well as how she went about making this with granny squares.
Prendolyn the Weird blogs all Harry Potter crafts, all the time at Wilcox Wizard Wear. Click through to read five posts detailing how she made this wonderful Fleur Delacour costume to wear to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. She did everything from sewing the dress and capelet to painting a pair of shoes to making the wool hat. (Is there a verb for hat making? Besides hat making?) I am in awe and plan on spending some quality time reading her entire blog.
I am seeing so many cool Harry Potter crafts this week in honor of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince opening this week (which I will be watching in an hour – yea!!!!!!!). Craftster user norecliner, along with her mom and sister, crocheted a boxful of Pygmy Puffs and then handed them out at the movie theater! They used a pattern from Ravelry (not sure which one, so here’s a list) and did such a great job using different textured yarn.
Thank you Geek Crafts reader Kelly Szpunar for our very first Alien(s) craft! On her new blog HunkyDorky, she shares how she made this incredibly cool facehugger bookmark out of a cereal box. (If you don’t know what this is, you are a bad geek and need to watch Alien and Aliens stat!) Check out her blog – she’s also got True Blood, X-Files and Star Trek projects up (Tribble cupcakes!).
