Giant Totoro

Giant Totoro

LadyKatka from Ravelry made this incredibly huge Totoro. Seriously, he weighs 14.8 lbs. For those people without Ravelry accounts, do not despair, all the photos are on Flickr too. It’s worth clicking through for the rest of the photos – my favourite is the one where he takes up her entire backseat.

Geeky Cookie Cutters!

Totoro and Oliver

I found some AMAZING cookie cutters on WarpZone Prints on Etsy, and I just could not resist trying them out!! So, I ordered a few and here’s the finished result! I absolutely love them!! I also have a Mr. Drippy cutter, but I wasn’t able to get the cutter to come out very well, so that needs some practice I think! Athey Moravetz from WarpZone prints makes all the cutters with a 3D printer, and can make custom cutters as well as all the ones in the store!

Cursed Mr Drippy Amigurumi

Cursed Mr Drippy

After my post a few weeks ago featuring the Mr Drippy Amigurumi on Kitten’s Crafts, I decided I wanted to make myself one, and then make a cursed version of Mr Drippy (before he comes to life!) So, with permission, I adapted the pattern to make my very own cursed Mr Drippy amigurumi pattern!

Please DO NOT sell anything made from this pattern. I do not own the rights to the character Mr. Drippy and so it would be illegal to make profit from it. Also, part of this pattern is by Jastra Alethea on Kitten’s Crafts, and she has asked that nothing made from her pattern, which is freely available, is sold. Make them for yourself or as a gift, but please, do not sell them! Thank you!

An Introduction

jennysortinghat Hi everyone, I’m Jenny, and I’m a new writer on geek crafts, so I thought I should introduce myself before I make my first ‘proper’ post! I will have a regular posting slot every Saturday morning!

(Photo credit to my sister, Kate, taken at the WB studio making of Harry Potter tour in London. Hey, Kate!)

I live in London, England (with my equally geeky boyfriend, Shaun) and as you may have guessed I am a massive geek and I love crafting! My favourite crafts are crochet, particularly amigurumi, and baking, but to be honest I like to dabble in a bit of everything, and I’m willing to try anything and everything once, but I have finally conceded that I am never going to be able to knit.

Geek wise, my greatest loves are Harry Potter and Studio Ghibli. I also love gaming (although I’m terrible at it, despite years of practice…!) my favourite games are currently Little Big Planet, Skylanders, Ni no Kuni, Alice Madness Returns and all the Lego games! Oh, and I can’t forget the old classics, Pokémon, Crash Bandicoot and Spyro!

I am also a massive science nerd. I have a degree in Genetics and am currently training to be a nurse in order to achieve my dream of becoming a Genetic Counsellor! I love all types of science, though, so there may be a fair few science-related geek crafts coming your way!

Of course, that’s not ALL of my geeky loves, but it gives you a taste of things to come…

Well, I think that is enough of an introduction. I hope you will enjoy my posts. Remember to check in every Saturday morning for my geeky crafty updates!!

Harry Potter Hogwarts Ca
