Hello fellow nerds!

 

I figure with so many of us on these forums there must be some crafters out there.

I thought it would be nice to share past, present and future projects with each other. I love seeing how creative people are!

 

I dabble in bits and bobs as the mood takes me, I knit, sew, felt and glue things. 

My current project is this scarf, not so nerdy, but pretty bad ass all the same.

 

Before I've made Pokemon and Final Fantasy felt creatures;

Since then I've made zombies and other spooky creatures too.

 

 

But I've recently I've made hair clips too;

The bottom two are in stages, I've got a green zombie badge and the one on the right is going to be a dead pool one.

Of course my favourite one :)

I also did Star Wars ones, too! I used the figures from the lego advent calenders, I also made them into christmas tree ornaments.

 

 

Recent non nerdy crafts I've recently finished include

 

A dinosaur;

And a hat;

My other half cross stitches, so he is currently working on this bad boy!

So, that's my little dabble into nerdy crafts, I'm looking to make a sci fi blanket next, as soon as I finish the scarf that is.

 

 

You guys must have some great projects, lets see 'em!

I'm less crafter and more hobbyist, I find myself tearing apart electronics for recycling purposes and running around with a camera. My fiance is the crafter in this household, she does scrapbooking and "upcycling" .

Those hair bows are so awesome!!

 

I haven't really done a lot of knitting in a while - too many other projects - but here's some stuff I did back in the day...

 

Space Invaders double-knit scarf:

Chain Chomp scarf (my friend knit a Chain Chomp hat, I made a scarf.)

And a monkey I knit for my mom:

Also illustration and stuff but that's "artsy" rather than "craftsy."  I'm both.  Which means I have way too much crap in my closet.

You guys are incredible!

I would totally love that space invaders pattern ;)

I'd love to do building terrains and stuff, I keep getting tempted to do things like that, but it's just cost at the moment, I can buy lots of ribbon pretty cheap.

 Zombie making terrain is absolutely dirt cheep. My most expensive supply is glue sticks for a hot glue gun LOL. The rest of the supplies include trash cardboard, Trashed foam, aluminum foil , Dirt /pebbles/sticks from your yard. And some of those 70 cent artist paints from the craft store. Oh and a can of black spray paint.....

 

 Its like legos for adults and you arnt limited by the shape of the blocks. Anything you can cut/ tear or form you can make. 

Im about as Hard a Target as a balloon full of cottage cheese.....

I used to knit beanies and stuff like that, nothing super nerdy though. 

 

Once upon a time though, they had a sale on sharpies at Target. I got a little too excited and bought every color imaginable.

And made this.

 

That counts as a craft... right? ._.

@Zombie - The other half's cross-stitch is mind-boggling!

 

There are crafty nerds over in the 6 Week Challenges... The Renaissance Rebels are creating and crafting for their seventh challenge now. Come on by and  say, "Hi!"

The cross stitch is crazy!

I don't have the patience for anything so fiddly that requires so many colour changes, it keeps him busy though. We watch old episodes of Pokemon to inspire him,

I just don't know what to make lol

Chain chomp scarf... then you can send it to me... :-D

 

 

 

Wow, that majora's mask is so colorful! I think it counts as a craft. Craft is an art and art is a craft :)

I'll mark this post, if you consider photography as a craft, I'll have to put some up later when I can access my account.

I craft in my spare time.  Not nearly as nerdy as some posted here, but I do alright.

I don't have any pics at the moment but I make things from duct tape( wallets, bags, flowers), and I like to take things apart and make other things from them. I once made a pair of glasses from two plastic forks out of boredom. And I am remodeling my basement into a zombie themed bar.

I made a pair of pi scarves (double knitting, alternating colours for each number). I would have to dig up pictures though at the moment. I haven't made anything else that's especially nerdy, though I had my eye on some katamari hat patterns for a while... however, they were mostly crochet and I don't know how to do that. :(

 

I did find a squid hat pattern for babies that I want to make in adult size at some point though.

I don't have pictures at the moment, but I made necklace out of ds game circuit board and comic flats (Marvel's Hercules series). Oh and I make flower hair clips and little toy necklaces (lego and ninjas so far).

I mostly knit, crochet and cross stitch. The nerdiest things I've made are toques for my husband - one is Transformer themed and one is Star Wars themed. I charted out the Star Wars one all by myself and I'm really, really proud of it

I also made a friend of mine Slytherin themed wrist warmers for a Harry-Potter themed pub crawl.

I totally want to get into resin casting as soon as I have more time and money, to make various costume pieces and props. But for now I just use more time-consuming, amateurish methods.

 

I also got an elite membership card at Tandy Leather recently, so crafting LARP armor will totally be a thing in the next year or so X) Other than that, I'm a sewing newbie hoping to get better at it in the near future. I want to make epic coats, and possibly combine those with the aforementioned armor, because winning.
