Is it some kind of Star Wars blasphemy to depict Darth Vader as Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer or the Star Trek emblem as a Santa hat, well then these 2 Etsy card makers know no boundaries.
Maybe it’s too late to get these cards this year, but there’s always next. Merry Christmas!

The weather outside is frightful but Star Wars hats are so delightful… Okay, so it doesn’t really have the same ring to it as the famous Christmas carol but they really are super cool. Anyone worth their salt will know there is a pretty big day coming up in the calender, one which we will all celebrate. Yup, the release of the Star Wars MMO Star Wars The Old Republic on December 20th. Most of us can wave goodbye to seeing our loved ones over the Christmas period but whilst he’s deciding to go Empire or Republic you can at least get some peace and quiet to craft.
This amazing hat is hand knitted by Etsy seller LittleBirdLucy. The knitted Princess Leia Bun Hat is available in Black or Brown and is available in Toddler, 4-6 years, teen and adult sizes. Yup we can all look this awesome, and just think how warm your ears would be!
What say “Christmas” better than robots? Nothing, That’s what.
I love his little eyes. He looks like Cookie Monster… if Cookie Monster was a Christmas Tree.
A few years ago I considered myself quite clever for printing a screenshot of World of Warcraft‘s Grandfather Winter on label paper and slapping it on a CD to make a Christmas ornament for my son. Oh, the shame, when I compare that to this amazing stocking project.
Amy Campbell recently shared this stocking project in the Geeks United in Crafts Facebook group, and I had to immediately run over and share it here. Here’s how she described the project on her blog, A Harpy’s Point of View:
It was “a surprise gift for friends we met through World of Warcraft and their delightful little son… I took screenshots from the game World of Warcraft to get Grandfather Winter (aka Santa) and the tree from Orgrimmar. I then got pictures of my friends’ characters off the Armory. I shopped the three images together, including some presents from under the tree. Next, I made a patter using PC Stitch Pro.”
Seriously, as my son described it, legit. He also forgave me for my unimaginative ornament.
Now surely, I can get one of these whipped out by Christmas Eve, right?
Also, don’t forget GeekCraft founder Shayne is looking for Garden gnome projects for her ebook.

With the holidays fast approaching, it’s understandable that we might all be getting a little excited, girls and bots alike. (Come on—you can’t tell me Data didn’t want to put Spot in a kitty-sized Santa hat.)
So here’s one for the robots in the crowd—or at least the robot aficionados—who want to deck the halls in a suitably festive fashion for this human holiday known as Christmas.
