Monday, August 3rd, 2015

Suedre made a very cool quilted bag featuring a ShyGuy on one side and Luigi on the other.

I’m not a quilter, but I can really appreciate all the work that goes into these pixel quilt pieces. (I own a fabulous Black Mage quilt by Quiltoni so I’ve seen close-up what these things are made of.)
I know some of you are quilters, or maybe you know a quilter, and would like to know how something like Suedre’s bag is made. Well, there’s good news – she wrote a tutorial detailing exactly how it’s done!

Concrete Thwomp

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

I have a Thwomp in my bedroom, it is a plush and scarily accurate looking. However, being plush prevents it from being as accurate as this concrete masterpiece:

The maker wrote a how-to guide so everyone can have a Thwomp (if they want one, that is. And why wouldn’t you?) I have to say, I never thought of using concrete for a craft project!

Sometimes, the simplest ideas are the best ones. Like this Chain Chomp crocheted key cover by Pops de Milk!

If you crochet, or know someone that does, there’s a nice tutorial on how to make your own at Pops’ website!

Pokemon Flowerpots

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

It’s always amazing to me how some people find new ways to craft popular characters. These Pokemon flowerpots are a great example!

This Ivysaur was made by applying paper mache to a papercraft model.

This Oddish pot is made from plaster and looks quite unusual!

And this second Ivysaur pot was made using the same steps as the one above, but the maker added air drying clay to it to give it a smoother look. It’s very effective! :)

If you’d like to make your own pots, or even just solid models, here is a link to the Ivysaur instructable (please note, the author called it a Bulbasaur Pot because they thought Ivysaur might be less well-known!)
