Just three weeks ago, I linked to Lunascrafts’ Death of Rats. Well, she’s done it again, this time with a jaw droppingly large Dalek. Made with super bulky yarn, and a 5.5mm hook, this squishy ball of hate used up an entire IKEA cushion for stuffing. That’s dedication!
As if he wasn’t cute enough, the banner just makes this.
Not only is it fabulous, there’s a tutorial to make your very own! Why stop at one? You could make thousands of them and help restore the Dalek race.
Who wouldn’t love drinking coffee out of this amazing mug. Daleks are not knowing for feeling emotion, so when two fall in love it is truly a special thing to behold. Now you can commemorate this once in a life time occasion every morning while you drink your coffee.
I was working on something challenging and the show was playing in the background. My sewing project hit a frustrating snag and all I heard in the background was that horrible >>EXTERMINATE EXTERMINATE<< and I.just. got. stressed. out.
The way my story ended was with a poorly hemmed pair of fuzzy pig print pajama pants and a moratorium on Dr. Who in my house (or at least in my presence). I do not have the skill and tenacity of somevelvetmorning, who produced with sewing poetry (also known as sewitry).
She shares the step-by-step instructions with us to attempt to replicate her awesomeness.:
… or at least keep the boiled eggs warm! These hand crafted Dalek Egg Cozies are just right for the job. Created by Lyles Knit, free patterns are available for either a knitted circular. Don’t feel left out, crocheters because there is a crocheted pattern available that was designed by Alienfish. For those who prefer knitting flat, Lyles Knit also provides a pattern for that version as well by Anne.
Not much of an egg eater? Just crochet or knit a small circular piece for the bottom, stuff and you have an amigurumi version of a dalek!

This one is more like a victory over the Daleks with its detail and accuracy. It’s an amazing cross stitch Shae made of the Daleks’ Victory poster from Season 6 of Doctor Who. Not only has she managed to chart and stitch this out, but Shae was kind enough to share the charts for this cross stitched poster here.
Shae is a multitalented crafter who also does machine embroidery and paper piece quilting among others. Her crafting can also be found in her Etsy shop, ShaeWow. You might want to be aware that her items sometimes have adult phrases on them but she has items from various fandoms and in different media.
