Pokemon is serious business in our house. It is one of the most treasured and sacred of our fandoms. Anticipation for Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire is high to say the least. I present to you this adorable Pokemon Etsy treasury. Don’t forget to click on through and check out your favourites! Which Pokemon game has been your favourite so far?
Have you heard of Spoonflower? It’s a company/site that allows you to create print-on-demand fabric, wallpaper and giftwrap. Which makes it a geekcrafter’s dream, both for designers and general crafty folk. You can upload your own designs to print on fabric and such, or browse the thousands of patterns created by others. There are a bounty of categories, including Geek, and pretty much every fandom you can think of is represented, including Doctor Who (see also Whovian), Star Trek, Firefly, Sherlock, and Hobbit. I’m personally eyeing this swirly Doctor Who fabric by Risarocksit to make a skirt in the near future. (I actually took a skirt making class, just so I could use this fabric!)
I recently met a geekcrafter who uses Spoonflower to print her designs and then creates items to sell in her Etsy shop – Elinor Parker, aka The Costume Wrangler. I purchased a cool Doctor Who headband (pictured above) from her at a local craft fair, which features her custom design of TARDISes spinning in the cosmos.
Have you created anything with Spoonflower fabric? Or purchased anything made from custom-designed fabric? Link us up in the Comments section below!

Everyone wants to get their hands on a certain dancing tree. Well there are ways now, you can give a crafter some support, or you can take up the tools of your preferred craft and have at it. Heck there was a post here just a couple days ago with a lovely piece of Groot jewelry.

I’m going to let you guys in on a secret. I’m a crafty geek. I know you are all stunned I can see it. Can you imagine a geeky crafter? Okay, I’ll stop being silly now, but the fact is I make geeky jewelry, knitting patterns, and stitch markers. I have had an Etsy shop for a few years, and it full of items inspired by Comics, Books, Movies, TV, Mythology, Fairy Tales, and so forth.
What fandoms you may be asking? Well the photo above, were from my Addams Family line of Stitch Markers. You will also find, Game of Thrones, Marvel Characters, DC Characters, Game of Thrones, Lord of The Rings, Sherlock, Merlin, Doctor Who, Stargate, Harry Potter, Supernatural, to name a bunch of the places I have been inspired by to make things. Like Spoilers Earrings.
Earrings inspired by River Song, and her diary. Full of time travel secrets. Doctor who not your cup of tea, what about a pair of Loki Earrings?
And I’ve posted so much about knitting here lastly I leave you with a set of my Aquaman stitch markers.
So feel free to check out my shop. The November update goes live later today, and will be full of things in honor of the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who and other geeky items. There may be pie involved.
