My inspiration for making these were the “Tetrius Puzzle Game Magnets” from ThinkGeek. I had a TG gift certificate I had to spend and came across them. I thought they would be cool to put on the fridge or on my metal cabinet at work. As luck would have it, they were out of stock at the time and I started thinking… it should be easy to make something like that at home for much less than $10 for a set. So, what follows is how to make your own.

In honor of finally
wearing down convincing my husband that we need a Wii, here is a funny 1.25″ pinback button from Etsy user Zelas. You can also order it as a magnet. Who doesn’t like to play with their Wii?
Cook long and prosper?
Flickr user Nix Sidhe made this ridiculously awesome Spock apron for her boyfriend. Star Trek fans who also cook, rejoice! I’m dying to know if she found fabric with a giant Spock or if she had some other clever way of making it so big.
David Pinch, a customer of the Isotope comic book shop in San Francisco created this amazing X-Men comic book quilt. There are NO details on how he did it though… are those real comic book pages in there? Are they iron-ons? Just how did he do it????
Etsy seller n2Imaginations knitted this Space Invaders sweater last fall. Check out the scores on the sleeve.
I’m not really sure why a second X Files movie is being made. Wasn’t the first X Files movie kind of… bad compared to the TV show? Is that blasphemy? Anyway, something fun comes from anticipation of the new movie: Craftster user sydneysunray’s keychain plushies. Sydney sewed a little Mulder and a little Sculley out of felt.
