VGameCraft on Etsy made this pretty sweet Zelda stained glass style lamp:
The stained glass part is made of acrylic, and the base is made of pine plywood. Etched into the base are Hylian words that say:
And the force of the golden light, embodied in Hyrule’s princess, shone forth upon the lands.”
And it lights up! VGameCraft has a video on Youtube that shows it when lit so be sure to check that out!

Stitchmond from the forums has been doing more wonderful work of late. One of them is this cute little mashup piece:
It’s stitched on 14ct oatmeal aida, and as Stitchmond says, “It’s pretty straightforward.”

I must admit, I’m a bit of a magpie at times. I love shiny things! So, when I found an Etsy shop called Shiny Things by Miyuka, filled with geeky and nerdy shiny things, I had to share some of the items!
Some mini gaming pins (A SNES pad, an old GameBoy and a 3DS):
A mini TARDIS pendant:
Kanto region badges from Pokémon:
They’re laser cut from reflective acrylic and assembled by hand. And all super shiny! There are many more items in the store, such as Zelda rupees, My Little Pony elements and super hero icons, so be sure to check it out!

I discovered this Etsy store while on one of my usual hunts and found some remarkable miniatures!
HALO Installation 04 mini sculpture
Deku Shield pendant
Mass Effect Mass Relay mini
Articuno Fledgling art doll
Marika Schirmacher, the store owner, creates all these items and more by hand, often using Sculpey polymer clay and Citadel Colors paints. Some items are one of a kind, some are always available.

Crafters have been making ornaments out of felt since felt was invented. I remember making a Christmas pudding one and a Christmas stocking one when I was a small Mage, many moons ago (I still have them, and they get trotted out every year for the tree.)
Melissa, of Tilly’s Hangout, makes far better ones than I could, though!
The Luigi and Petey seen here are my favourites, but Melissa also makes a snazzy Fire Flower. They also come as keyrings. You can buy all these and more in her Etsy store!

Maladee Makes creates some very interesting themed lamps, one of which is Zelda-inspired.
The lamp itself is a wooden 7″x7″x7″ cube and features different designs from the Legend of Zelda series. It looks lovely when it’s off, but simply wonderful when switched on!

Today’s crafty piece was submitted to our Facebook page by Stephanie Taylor.
She crocheted this lovely blanket for her son’s birthday. It took around 150 hours, from April to July, to create each square and then put it together. Stephanie used 42 colours of yarn and made all of it in single crochet stitch.
Here are some close ups of the Bowser and Mario squares:
And just before the squares were all joined together:
Stephanie chose 16 images of her son’s favourite characters from Mario Kart and got them turned into charts at the “Momma’s JAM Pack Crochet Word Charts” website.
I think it turned out really well and I hope Stephanie’s son loves it!
