Pac-Man Quilt is Driving Me Crazy

Pac-Man Quilt is Driving Me Crazy
This retro arcade quilt makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The throw features the pixel-y likenesses of Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man and all of their ghostly pals (along with some delicious 8-bit cherries). Posted by s0choice over on the Craftster forums, the handmade quilt is one of my favorites in a long time.

Star Wars Amigurumi: the Jedi Get Stuffed

Star Wars Amigurumi: the Jedi Get Stuffed
Who says that Star Wars has to be all about manly things like lightsabers, Death Stars and Darth Vader? Why can’t it be about butterflies, puppies and playing with dolls? Crafter Sammi Resendes of Geek Central Station sure thinks that the classic sci-fi epic can be just as sweet as a roomful of cuddly kittens rolled in confectioners sugar.

Fun Sonic the Hedgehog Necklace Rules

Fun Sonic the Hedgehog Necklace Rules
Look at this playful shrinky plastic Sonic necklace from Etsy seller geekchicboutique. It’s very cool, but just because I have been charmed and distracted by it doesn’t mean I’ve forsaken my madcap Tetris obsession. I mean, even though the elusive gold rings Sonic loves to collect have been thoughtfully included here doesn’t mean I’ve lost my focus.

Pole Position Quilt: Prepare to Qualify

Pole Position Quilt: Prepare to Qualify
Back in the day, Pole Position was one of my all-time favorite arcade games. Not only was it the first full-color POV racing game, it had some of the most groundbreaking graphics in its time. With today’s photorealistic racing games like the Gran Turismo and PGR series, it’s amazing how far we’ve come.
