Haunter Appliqué Hoop

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

IggyStarpup has been featured on the blog before, but I just could not resist this delightful Haunter Hoop!

Haunter and its hearts are made of felt which have been appliquéd on to some pretty fabric, and set in a gorgeous green hoop. The embroidered words at the top are in a similar green, which just brings it all together. I might just have to get me one. :)

Poke-Cubes

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

We see a lot of Pokemon around Sprite Stitch, crafted in all sorts of unique ways. I’m not sure I’ve seen anything quite like these before! They’re called “Poke-cubes” and are knitted cube-shaped plushies, all handmade by Lorna of P1X3LKnitting.

These little guys, along with a whole bunch of other Poke-cubes (including an Onix, which gets auto+1 from me) and some other very nice knitted items are all on sale in the P1X3LKnitting Etsy store – go check it out!

The Props Shop

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Etsy is a great source of items, supplies and inspiration too. I stumbled upon The Props Shop while scrolling through my Etsy activity feed and found some really awesome pieces in the store!

This set of three transforming masks from Majora’s Mask are fantastic! The shop has a lot of Zelda items; masks, weapons, rupees and this pretty great Deku Shield:

There’s also other cool items in the shop, like Palutena’s Bow from Kid Icarus, which you can either use as the bow or as the two swords:

And one of my favourite items, a Helix Fossil:

The artist uses all sorts of materials to create her items, like wood, foam, plastic and more! You can find these items and other awesomeness in the Etsy store (link below) – definitely worth checking out!

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!)

Pokemon Corner Bookmarks

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

I came across these bookmarks quite by accident the other day (while searching for Electabuzz plushies, but that’s another story).

The bookmarks have the Pokemon’s face on the front, their tail or behind on the back, and the really nice thing is that they bite on the corner of your page!

Momo’s Makery has a whole range of different Pokemon bookmarks, with some really interesting features! Here’s a few more examples:

And there’s more in the Etsy shop! (Needs some Onix, though.)

Game Boy Pillow Covers

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

I was in the middle of a heavy procrastination session when I stumbled upon these beauties by Arnixia:

The colours are amazing and the “screens” so crisp and clear. Who wouldn’t want to snooze on one of these?
