What’s better than tiny felt owls? Superhero owls. What could be better than that? Batman and Robin as superhero owls. Etsy seller Tiny Felts has owls in a variety of colors and designs and welcomes custom orders. Perhaps you’d like to request, a clown owl of crime to face off our dynamic duo. She also has options for customizing your owls. Super-owl, Spider-owl, Green Lant-owl, this could be a lot of fun.
Claire Chambers is a craftser and blogster keeping track of a delightful effort on her blog Absolutely Small. She has been doing this thing that is so cute you guys…felt alphabet squares. If you go to her Flickr pages you can see the full effort of alphas, but I selected the one below for our fair post. This princess is the namesake of my beloved puppy girl, and the ruling alpha female of our house, despite her 13 lb stature. Much more geek where this came from though, especially J, R, T, W, X, Y, and of course… Z is for Zelda!
So, this week’s Friday Round-Up celebrates one of my heroes, Darwin. The well-known two legged take on the ichthys symbol is used by fans of evolution (can a scientific theory have fans? Does it matter if it does or not? It’s popularity’s kinda irrelevant; it’s still true…). Darwin Fish (Or Tonys, as all good Feeters know) are rough depictions of Ichyostega, the remains of which are important transitional fossils between tetrapods and fish, since they have a tail and gulls akin to fish but amphibian style skull and limbs.
So, I present to you my ten favourite crafts in honour of both Darwin and Tony…
For those of us who are parents, we all deal with the same problem of how to keep our little geeklings occupied and/or quiet when needed. Yesterday while perusing Pinterest, I found the most amazing answer!
A Star Trek Quiet Book! I am in AWE! Julie has created an amazing quiet book complete with a full set of the Next Gen characters in finger puppet form, transporter, a Vulcan salute and Geordie’s glasses.
Heck, I think I’d have to buy two of these books. One for my kids and one for ME!
Check out Julie’s etsy for even more of her geeky, creative genius!
That’s what is so wonderful about the TARDIS, time becomes wibbly, wobbly and what you thought worked as a Halloween TARDIS Trick or Treat Tote would be equally appropriate as an Easter Basket for your favorite Companion as you travel through time.
This free tote pattern is the creation of Jennifer Ofenstein of Sewhooked who was inspired by a request for a TARDIS bag from her daughter. With some felt, thread and ingenuity, Jennifer came up with a tote that can hold so many wonderful things, not just candy (though it really is the perfect place for hiding that chocolate stash).
