Incredible Super Mario Bros 3 Crochet Blanket

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

Crocheting is an easy(ish) skill to pick up – even I can do it. There are some people who truly master crochet and Kjetil Nordin is one such person. He created this amazing SMB3 blanket.

According to his friend (who posted the pictures online), it took Nordin 6.5 years, or 800 hours, to crochet this whole thing. This includes the time spent hunting for perfect yarn colours, and even starting over when one of the colours wasn’t to Nordin’s liking.

I wonder what his next project will be?

Paper Piranha Plant Flowers

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

This blogger only ever received flowers once in her life – they were pretty but didn’t last long. A more permament and geeky alternative? These paper Piranha Plant flowers from Tally’s Treasury.

Tally’s Treasury provide a detailed guide (complete with templates) on how to make these yourself. If Piranha Plants aren’t your cup of tea, how about a bouquet of Fire Flowers? There’s a guide for that too!

I love quirky lighting projects, and especially video game ones. I discovered these awesome LED light pieces in the Etsy store of TheDailyRobot.

Charm bracelets are still a thing, but you won’t catch this blogger wearing one. Although…I might change my mind if it were something like this awesome work:

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

ChinookCrafts make some amazing things, like rupees and pieces of heart. But they also make these:

medallions

Armed with a laser cutter, they fashion not only the medallions but the plaque they sit in too. As their Etsy listing says, “Each Sage Temple Plaque comes with six perfectly cut decagon slots to house each of the Sage Medallions as seen in the Sage Temple, and in the Ocarina of Time menu system. To finish it off, a golden trim was added along with a beautiful Golden Triforce in the middle.”
Check out their Etsy store for these items and more laser-cut goodness!
