Cool Old School Cross Stitched Pillow

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

One of my rules for life is that you can never have too many pillows (or as we call them here in the UK, cushions). Cross stitched ones are the best, because you can find some really great design ideas, like this one!

So many different classic icons, it’s almost like a sampler! I like the part with the Black Mage. :)

Perler Bead Bracelets

Saturday, March 8th, 2014

Uenki makes some pretty cool video game themed perler bead bracelets… I was slightly worried about how strong these would be, but it looks like there is a clear plastic support inside for stability.

I chose a pacman and a pokemon one but there are plenty more on flickr!

MCM London Comic Con part I: Retr8bit

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

The MCM London Comic Con is an exciting convention for fans of games, comics, and Japanese culture alike. In the first of a four part series on crafters at the MCM London Comic Con, which took place from the 24th to the 26th of May this year, we’re going to take a look at Retr8bit.

Retr8bit is run by Matthew Kibble who creates fantastic, detailed Hama bead standees, jewellery and accessories.

The beads that are used for Retr8bit’s products are mini Hama beads, these beads only measure 2.5mm (just under 1/10th of and inch) across, which means the fine detail can be created while keeping the pieces small enough to be used as jewellery, keyrings and phone charms.

You can buy these fantastic Hama bead creations on Etsy, also check out the Retr8bit Facebook and DeviantART account.
