I can’t think of anything to write this week, so instead, I’ve lovingly curated a collection of ten free nerdy crafts for you all. (If my Facebook friends come through with cool post ideas, there may be a second post this week to make up for this one!) It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, so I figured, why not? So, here we go – seven nerdy free crafts!
1. Pokemon Pokeball Pillow
With Pokemon Sun and Moon having come out recently, and Second Gen Pokemon finding their way into Pokemon Go, now’s a good time to try making your own big snuggly Pokeball pillow for your house!

2. DIY Mario Lamp
This looks like a pretty awesome way to power up an existing lamp – and it also looks pretty easy, too!

3. 8-Bit Heart Slouchy Hat
I linked to this on the Facebook page earlier this week, but figured I’d share it out with all the blog followers! This is a super cute hat, and it’s definitely on my to-make list. (Once I finish everything else I’ve got started, that is…)

4. I Choose You! Quilt Square
A couple of my friends are really into paper piecing quilting lately, and while I have yet to fall down that rabbit hole, I will say that this adorable little Pikachu quilt square might just get me to try out paper piecing.

5. Crochet USS Enterprise
Okay, this is adorable. I need to make this for Ross. 🙂

6. Star Trek TNG Crocheted Headbands
Sticking with the Star Trek theme here, I found these awesome headbands while putting together this post – and ended up adding them to my ever-growing “oh my gosh I need to make this” pile.

7. Charmander Typography Cross-Stitch
This is one of the most unique Pokemon cross-stitch patterns I’ve seen! I really love it.

What a cute roundup – thanks for sharing my Pokeball pillow tutorial! I love the 8-bit slouchy heart hat. The pillow was for my son, but I just might have to make that hat for myself!
I saw the pillow and knew I had to include it – a co-worker has two sons who are really into Pokemon, and I bet they’d love a Pokeball pillow at some point! (And so would a lot of my friends, haha.) And I’m hoping to make the hat too, once I knock out at least one more project that’s in my in-progress pile!
