Beth’s Craft Picks of the Week! – 4/8/13

I’m going to try something new for the next few weeks here, and see how everyone likes it – I’m going to do a nerdy craft roundup, of four of the most interesting nerdy crafts I’ve found out on the internet!  Here’s hoping it brightens everyone’s Monday, and gives everyone some inspiration for some cool craft projects to make.

Books and Tardises bookmark cross-stitch pattern

il_570xN.256727710This looks like a fun project for cross-stitchers, and would also be a great gift for any Doctor Who fan!  It would also be a great weekend project, for when you’ve got some episodes of Doctor Who to catch up on.  You can find it at The Crafty Companion on Etsy.

Crocheted Tetris Blanket and Pillow Set

tetris3For those of you who absolutely love Tetris, here’s a pattern for you from Ravelry!  It looks simple to make, and would look awesome on your couch.  (I may have to make one of these…)

Spectacular Rarity Cross-Stitch Kit

f50bd6b757d0f7I can’t recommend Scootybeth’s cross-stitch kits enough – and this one would be absolutely wonderful to work on during the summer when it’s too hot to do much knitting or crocheting!   I did her Pinkie Pie kit last summer, and it came out wonderfully.  And for $15, for everything you need, it’s perfect!

Finn The Human

NewFinn03_medium2For those of you who like making amigurumi, this little guy would be perfect to make as an adventuring buddy!  After all, it’s dangerous to go alone.  Make this.  (Okay, maybe that’s the DayQuil talking.  I am still pretty sick…)

So, here’s my picks of this week!  Come back next Monday for four more

    Thanks for linking to the MLP cross-stitch. I’m tempted to get the patterns at some point now, especially since I’ve just started watching the show. XD
