rufus said, “I’ve worked on this crochet project steadily for around 2 hours a day for the past 4 months. Netflix sometimes demands some distraction so you don’t feel like you’re completely wasting your time! It has been really fun to see it forming row by row like it’s been loading for months! I did this using 1 sc per 1 pixel making it 240 rows of 256. If anyone wants to know more details about how to do this I would be happy to help. I found it quite rewarding.”

I think it’s very cool, and would love one of my own!

These one-of-a-kind statues are all for sale in Dottie’s Etsy shop, but she has photos of more of her work on her website, http://dottietorres.com/ – including this awesome Light World Map from A Link to the Past!

Street Fighter II Stitches

February 8th, 2016 - by blackmageheart

This week is the 25th anniversary of the release of the legendary Street Fighter II. (The actual date is subject to much debate!) Much has changed in 25 years, including SF itself, but many people still have good memories of that old game – including crafters! One of those is natepopinski from the forums, who produced a couple of great SF pieces.

Here we have a minimalist version of the fighters, which natepopinski discovered on Pinterest and just had to stitch; and a MegaMan style character select bookmark. Both projects are pretty cool!

Vulpix and Ninetales Stacking Plushies

February 3rd, 2016 - by blackmageheart

This Mage needs a dose of cute today, and since my kitten insists on being asleep and not fun at all, I turn to the internet! I found these lovely plushies and because cute must be shared, here they are!

Ninetales Plushies 1

Ninetales Plushies 2

Super cute! They’re made by BubbleRhapsodyDesign on Etsy and are designed for stacking in little heaps of adorableness. I like the Vulpix, but I think my favourite is Ninetales. I’d like to see some other stackable ‘mon too!

Jen from Epbot (and Cake Wrecks) made a cute holster bag, in the shape of a Hylian Shield.

This one is made with Friendlyfelt, some straps, clips and a zip. Jen didn’t write a tutorial for the bag, but she describes the process well enough that anyone could give it a try!
