Make Your Own Zombiebot Amigurumi!


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!

Plus, read the Geek Crafts review of Nelly Pailloux’s Crobots book!

Robot Love


How about a little robot love for Valentine’s Day? With just under a month to go, you have just enough time to whip up something for your geeky sweetheart (or yourself!)

I found several cute robot projects so I thought I would do a mini round-up. First we have this adorable Luvbot (pictured above), a knitting pattern available from Anna at Mochimochiland.

Next we have the cute Cara the amigurumi robot from Rachel at CrochetSpot (subscribe to her newsletter to get the pattern for free, plus get a heads up on free patterns every week!)

Here’s an advanced-beginner cross-stitch project with a little binary code to say “I love you” in robot – Alicia Watkins has the cross-stitch kit all prepped for you on Etsy.

Then finally we have this fun crochet robot lovey blanket from Sarah at Repeat Crafter Me, so your favorite wee one can cozy up and dream of robot besties!

Eyebot Minions

Eyebot army As soon as I saw these little guys, I feel in mini-robot love. Though probably not technically robots, I’m sure you’ll agree they’re quite lovable. Hand-crafted by self-proclaimed “wood butcher” Colin Johnson, these pieces are made of reclaimed cedar wood and dolls’ eyes. Would you have guessed they were made from wood?

They make me think of little Minions from Despicable Me, or even the little alien dudes from the Toy Story trilogy. What do they make you think of? How would you use or display them?

Make your own robot. (or as least decorate your own)

Who doesn’t want their own personal robot? Well check out this cute little guy, Wendell.

I love that he comes as a blank slate, so you can decorate him any way you want. He’s also open source, so you can program him to do your bidding.


And check him out dressed as Michael Jackson doing the thriller dance.
