Robots are cool. Do a search on “robot” at etsy.com and you’ll get more than 2,000 results. Flickr serves up another 1,500. Plushies, etched glass, metalworks – anything goes for making robots. Here are a few:
Melisdramatic traced her daughter Ivy’s robot drawing to do this embroidery. What is this robot thinking?
My First Robot
And another from Jess Hutchinson‘s “Unusual Toys for You to Knit and Enjoy.” This was Lily Dustbin’s first robot attempt. Naturally, she plans on knitting more. There’s no such thing as too many robots.
These cute little robot brooches are made of felt. And they’re a miniature version of Andricongirl’s larger robots.
David the Unappreciated Robot
Bride and Groom Robots
Robot Geek in Love
This sweet robot print is available from CraftieRobot’s Etsy shop. At 8 1/2 x 11 inches, it would make a great addition to the wall of any room.
Angry Robot Pouch
This robot is fun *and* functional :) Unzip his mouth to store your money and other small things. Also, I’m just a sucker for glitter vinyl.
Robot Shot Glass
BreadandBadger is freehand-etching shot glasses with a rotary tool for your drinking needs. No two robots are alike.
Shopping Robot Market Bags
Reusable shopping bags are all the rage right now, as they should be. Go green with these screen-printed robot bags.
Guy Robot turns junk into robots. Be sure to check out his entire web site for robot-y goodness. This here is Ollie:
“Ollie is one tough robot, built to handle a heap of abuse. Rocks and worse just bounce off of his head. Ollie’s body armor is bomb-squad certified, he can squat thrust twice his weight. Once, on a dare, he did eleven thousand pull-ups.”
Robot Invasion Instructable
Thanks to MrMunki and instructables, you can make robots too. These ornaments are even solar-powered. Now get to it!
While watching Battlestar Galactica, Steph saw Starbuck’s mandala and thought it would make an awesome hat. (She was right!) She says,
The colors and design are great, and it’s the perfect fandom knit; people who watch the show will probably get it, but those who don’t will just think it’s an awesome hat.
Get the pattern and instructions on Steph’s blog.
Our first Weekend 10 installment is all about everyone’s favorite Star Wars droid, R2-D2.
1. R2-D2 Cake
Flickr user sugarlipscakes made this R2-D2 cake for Dave’s 30th birthday. Dave’s a lucky man.
2. R2-D2 PC Case Mod
The Contaminated posted this incredible R2-D2 case modification. Unfortunately, there’s no instructions or further information. Not that any of us mere mortals could duplicate this amazing feat of engineering anyway.
Craftster.org user subloke made this Transformers toque based on Baigneuse’s version, who made hers based on Flickr user twosixteen’s chart. Subloke even made the Transformers hat reversible – one side has Autobot and Decepticon icons and the other side says “more than meets the eye.”
She was even kind enough to post the pattern and instructions to the Transformers hat so anyone with the skillz can make one too!
