More nerdy things.

School still has a vice grip on important things in my life, so I'm doing good to get one crafty thing done a week.

This week, another nerdy cozy! =D

Dunananana, BATMAN! =D It was super fun to make this. Hand-sewing is very comforting for me. :3

Even though I don't own an iPhone, I felt like making a cozy for one. But lucky for me, I do own an iPod, which is the same size.

I've got a few friends interested in other cozies, so that's exciting!

How are you all? Any new awesome things you've made as of late?

Take care, and happy crafting!

Nerdy card holders and hair bows

Hello every one!
Not a whole lot of crafting done this week. But the bit I did get done was lovely.

As I've been self printing my own business cards, I realized I really need something to put them in that can keep them all in order and safe. I walked by my little pile of felt, and saw the black felt and yellow felt just chilling out together. An awesomely nerdy idea popped into my head.

Dun nanananana Business Card Holder!
Its a wee bit wonky, but I love it all the same. Now my business cards have a nice place to live in my bag, and I have something adorable to pull them out from!

Here's the back detail. I love edging things with blanket stitch now!

I was also able to pump out a hair bow. I half knitted this as I waited for class to start, and nobody in the room noticed. I suppose it helped I introduced myself as a very crafty person on the first day.

Blue Hair Bow
I love this blue, it's nice a bright color, and it just makes me happy!

And here are the rest of the hair bows I've made, and (re)listed in the shop.
Hair Bows!


How have you all been?
Oh! I've also been on the look out for new blogs, to read. What are some of your favorites?

Take Care, and Happy Crafting.

Book and embroidery

One day, I'll come up with good blog titles. One day.

On Saturday, I arrived home to a lovely package. It was the book I won from the contest on Knit Cast!

gifted cover

The prize was Mags Kandis' book, Gifted. It's really an adorable book, filled with loads of sweet gift ideas. All the ideas can be completed quickly, so they can be given to their intended recipients asap.

In addition to various knitting, crochet, and felting projects, there are also little recipes for some nice edible gifts as well.
I am very happy to have received this book. Thank you Marie.

In other crafty news, I finished the unicorn embroidery!

I really love it, and I'm now doodling out other little things to embroider next.

And a week or so ago, I finally broke down and crocheted up an amineko. It was a great way to use up the huge ball of black yarn I had sitting around, and the result is an adorable crocheted cat!

He doesn't have a name, but he's not as lazy as other amineko.

He prefers a good novel to a nap any day.

Now I'll be off to do homework, and write pen-pal letters.

Take care, and Happy crafting.
