Yesterday I mentioned a quilted Batman Tote Bag by Ghostcat. Today, I realized that I’d never included that as a geek craft entry. It’s time to remedy that oversight.

NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA TOTE BAG!

NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA TOTE BAG!

This is the inspiration for my 8-bit lunch bag. It’s making me consider a similar project to make myself a new crochet bag, but one thing at a time.

This week I’ve found an awesome pattern for a little plush Jawa by Bitter Betty.

The link to the tutorial is near the bottom of the blog post.  I have to admit, even though I’m not much of a Star Wars fan, I really want to make one of these!  It’s adorable… in a manly way.

This week’s geek craft is build-your-own Tribbles

They eat your grain!

Not much to say about these other than that they are exactly as you would imagine: small, stuffed, hairy balls. *Snerk*

My wife has made a few of these long ago, but not so much recently.

(Sorry about the brevity of the post, but I have not been feeling so well of late).


I’ve been showcasing a disproportionate number of video game inspired crafts on my blog, so for the next few weeks I’m going to try to even things out by showcasing a wider world of geeky crafts. So for today, let’s do some Dr. Who!

I was geeking around online (It’s a real term, look it up) and looking at Tardis replicas. Yeah, that’s what I do for fun. Moving on. Anyway, while so enthralled with the sheer number and sizes of Tardis replicas I stumbled upon a Tardis Sewing Kit that I just had to share.

It's bigger on the inside.

Now, while there aren’t any plans for making it, there are plenty of pictures of it that it would be easy enough to figure out. And, with a few improvements you could have a really, really nice and geeky sewing kit. In fact, with the right modifications you could change that little sewing kit into any number of little carrying cases or holders. Or simplify the whole thing and you could, at the very least, have a Tardis pen and pencil holder for you desk at work! Let everyone at work know that you are to be avoided with one simple project. Or maybe a Tardis houseplant pot… so many things you can Tardisify (also a real term).

Squee!

Actually, now I really want to make myself a Tardis Tackle-box to take fishing…
