Craftster user pinkleo sewed this cute little pin of Harry Potter’s owl, Hedwig. At about 2 1/2 inches tall, it’s almost like having Hedwig riding on your shoulder.
As usual, cross-stitch lends itself perfectly to video game crafts. Craftster user Diana dOr whipped up Raccoon Mario for her sweetheart. She only had to play the game for two days for inspiration.
I love tiny things. And even better than tiny things is tiny geeky things! Lauren of The Clay Collection makes amazingly detailed itty, bitty polymer clay goodies. She even takes custom orders and it looks like she can handle just about anything. Check out her Etsy shop too see all her ready-made goods. Here are a few of my favorites:
You must bring us….a shrubbery!!! Flickr user tattooed_geek made this absolutely perfect charm bracelet based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail. She made a vicious bunny rabbit (with “nasty, big, pointy teeth”), a Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, a shrubbery!, galloping coconut, and an actual Holy Grail, all made from shrink plastic (remember Shrink Dinks?).
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.
Our first Weekend 10 installment is all about everyone’s favorite Star Wars droid, R2-D2.
1. R2-D2 Cake
Flickr user sugarlipscakes made this R2-D2 cake for Dave’s 30th birthday. Dave’s a lucky man.
2. R2-D2 PC Case Mod
The Contaminated posted this incredible R2-D2 case modification. Unfortunately, there’s no instructions or further information. Not that any of us mere mortals could duplicate this amazing feat of engineering anyway.
