I love Transformers. I love Doctor Who. So, what’s not to love about a 3-D printed, actual working/transforming Tardimus Prime??!! Seriously. What’s not to love? Inspired by Jason Casteel’s TARDIS Prime artwork, user Ellindsey designed and created this 3-D printed realization, and it actually transforms. What’s even cooler is you can find Ellindsey’s CAD files and instructions for building your own. Oh, for a 3-D printer. Even you don’t have one, you should definitely check out the link for the additional pictures. Transform and roll out!
I’m not exactly sure what a zombiebot is, but it sure is cute. Check out this free crochet pattern available on CraftFoxes.com, sourced from a super cute book (Crobots: 20 Amigurumi Robots to Make, by Nelly Pailloux).
I like this kind of pattern. It offers up instructions for you to make the zombiebot as is, or if you’re feeling daring, you can mix things up with different colors, “injuries”, stitches, and embellishments. Just think, you can crochet your own army of crobots as you plan world domination!

I just spent the weekend selling my handmade goodies at TopCon, a small pop-culture convention in Topeka, KS. One of the guests, Mike Mundy, was a zombie on The Walking Dead, so there was a lot of zombies hanging around this weekend. All those undead inspired me to share this great tutorial on making your own zombie plushie on the blog Heidi Boyd. This tutorial offers more inspiration than actual techniques, but if you’re familiar with basic hand sewing skills, you’ll have no problem making your little Zombie Plushie friend to hunt down brains with. You could even mix it up a bit and use different colored fleece, felt scraps, and embroidery floss. The tutorial offers up a great, basic starting point for your imagination to take over. Be sure to share your adventures in zombie making with us!
As Halloween inches closer, I’ve been on the lookout for cute monster crafts when I found a version of this little guy on Pinterest (you can find the original pin here on my Pinterest board!), but there was no tutorial attached. So, I made one! You can find the full tutorial on my blog. I hope you all enjoy making this little guy. Be sure to share your monstrously cute coin purses with us!

I actually came across Wolfdreamer‘s crochet patterns a few years ago, and I think they’re fantastic. This gorgeous Cyndaquil just popped up on my pinterest and I had to share it, as well as her other patterns, with you all. She not only has dozens of free Pokémon crochet patterns, she also has patterns for Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario Bros, and lots of other wonderful characters to crochet. Thank you, Wolfdreamer, you’re awesome!
After finding this awesome tutorial, I knew I had to share it with you all. Kristy GD from the blog Please Excuse My Craftermath posted this lovely step-by-step tutorial, complete with downloadable printouts for the stencils, to make these awesome Gallifreyan window blinds. Even if you’re not a Doctor Who fan, you’ve got to admit this design is really lovely!
