Nyan Cat Blanket

Craftster irisx crocheted 637 granny squares to create this Nyan Cat blanket! The project took nine weeks. The finished product is something special. There’s also a time-lapse video showing how the squares were assembled. Link-Thanks, Lisa!

The Dalek and TARDIS Quilt

This quilt, by Craftster member graverobbergirl, is a great tribute to this show, featuring a plethora of daleks floating around the TARDIS. My favorite details though are the explosion around the TARDIS and the spacey piece around the edge. Link Via Craftzine

Doctor Who Flip-Page Embroidery

Craftster member megstar made an embroidery hoop that flips to reveal a second page. The pages can be held in place with snaps. Her work is a reference to the Doctor Who episode “Blink“. Whovians have told me to watch that one episode if I want to get a sense of the value of the [...]

Portal Needlework Hoops

Craftster user TroubleT made this wonderful Father’s Day gift for her husband, a Portal fan. They’re a rather clever and appropriate use for embroidery hoops, don’t you think? Link -via Geek Crafts
