Star Wars Pillow and Blanket

Star Wars pillow and blanket

In just a year, I’m going to be finished with college. Soon, I’ll have to decide what to do with the rest of my life! Every time I see a baby in a pram or stroller, I squee with delight, so little geeky addition sounds just lovely. Young children are a great inspiration for crafts. I honestly can’t wait to turn our study into a Nintendo-themed bedroom and start finger-painting Pokémon with the little ones.

Chewbacca Domo

Chewbacca Domo

I think Chewbacca is one of the most misunderstood characters on Star Wars – probably because very few speak Wookie. Fortunately the pattern for this Chewbacca Domo appears very easy to understand, so with just a few snips and stitches you can have one for your very own. He even includes a video tutorial!

How cute would this look on your bed? I think it would make a great addition to a dorm room or geek den, too.

Star Wars Boba Fett Lamp

boba-lampSo you’ve got your R2-D2 bra all made, but you’re still needing to make something else Star Wars related…what to make, what to make? If you’re feeling  like a simple craft and you’ve got a few things to upcycle, then the Boba Fett lamp might be right up your alley.

Major League Mods has posted a fairly simple tutorial over at Instructables on how to take a simple lamp base and a Boba Fett helmet and turn them into a new lamp. The nice thing about this tutorial, that while it uses a Boba Fett helmet, you could use any toy helmet: Darth Vader, any kind of trooper, maybe even an Iron Man helmet.

GeekCrafts Submission: Harry Potter Sharpie Mug

DIY Sharpie-decorated mugs

We received this as a submission, and what a cute project! I had no idea you could decorate ceramic coffee mugs with regular Sharpies! I love how bright the colors turned out and the adorable little Harry Potter face (complete with mini Gryffindor scarf collar!).

What would you draw on your coffee mug? A Star Trek insignia? The Star Wars Rebel Alliance logo? A couple of Portals?

Dress like a Ewok

Dress like an Ewok

Why? Because Ewoks are awesome! Whether you fell in love with him in Return of the Jedi, or he stole your heart with his “Starcruiser, crash!” antics in Caravan of Courage, we all seem to have a soft spot for Wicket the Ewok – and now you can dress up like him too! (headstands and battling giant spiders optional)

Kristen Stevenson from TinyPurrs.com came up with this neat scoodie (that’s scarf and hoodie, don’tcha know?) pattern for all you crocheters out there and has released it as a free Ravelry download.

Star Wars Tumblers

Star Wars Tumblers

I’m always looking for the perfect gift for soon-to-be married geek couples or that awesome friend who seems to have everything already.  I know I’ve mentioned geekily functional items already — well, that is most definitely applicable when it comes to geek gift giving, as well.

The fine folks over at coryativ Etched Glassware have created three adorable 10 oz tumblers (a fancy name for a flat-bottomed drinking glass with no handle) with Star Wars designs etched onto the glass.  You can choose from Rebel Alliance, Insignia of the Galactic Empire, and New Jedi Order Symbol.  One tumbler is $10.00, or you can buy 2 for $18.00.

Head over to their website and check out their other designs, as well.  Better yet, think about what custom geeky glassware you’d like to give as a gift or use in your home, since they also love doing custom work.
