While I prefer to eat actual food, I have to say these hand-knit lambswool foodstuffs look pretty awesome too. They’re made by artist Jessica Dance, and definitely are definitely making me hungry just looking at them.
Too lazy to wash your shirt after every wear? Then Wool & Prince’s button downs should be perfect for you!
Its makers boast that the shirt can be worn for a hundred days straight without washing it in between.
Despite its age and relatively primitive graphics, Okami is still one of the most beautiful, creative and artful games ever created. If you recall, the games protagonist is a wolf named Amaterasu. One of the other wolves in the game was Shiranui, who tragically dies in battle with the beastly Orochi.
I’m going to go out on a limb and bet you these are the cutest, fuzziest Star Wars characters you’ll see today. These little needle-felted guys come to us from a galaxy far, far away, where even Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers aren’t imposing in the least.
No, this isn’t a new toy for your feline friend, it’s a concept charger for your phone and/or other devices. While it makes sense to have something that’s longer than standards cords, I wonder if cats everywhere will rejoice upon seeing this charger that’s designed to look like a ball of yarn.
These smartly designed iPhone (3G/3GS/iPod Touch) cases embrace not only a simple and elegant design philosophy, they’re actually quite practical too.
Designed by Minneapolis textile artist Angie Davis of Byrd & Belle, these unique iPhone cases protect your precious digital cargo inside a thick and cushy blanket of Merino wool felt and a soft Egyptian cotton interior lining.
No one likes the ugly sight of a condensation ring on the coffee table. This is a problem. Thankfully, there’s a solution, and it’s full of math.
These coasters will match perfectly with your number lamp and your equation bookshelf, so long as all you care about is, uh, math.
The math coasters, which are available in a variety of classy colors (as pictured above), are sold in sets of five for $22.
deviantARTist GlassCamel has found a way to defeat the Decepticons once and for all: render them as completely helpless (and cute) plushies. Felt has really got to be the least threatening fabric in the world. You just can’t hurt anything if you’re made of felt.
It took quite a bit of fabric, too, to craft this softie Shockwave–more than half an ounce, apparently.
Awwww. What could be more adorable than these plush little versions of classic Nintendo characters?
The only thing even more sickeningly sweet than the little squishy Mario is this plush and huggable mini-Yoshi.
All of these plush little guys are handcrafted by Kelley of LittleElfsToyshop using a technique called needle felting.
Even though we’re a couple of days into Spring, for so many of us in Northern climates, it still feels like the dead of Winter. It’s not too late to keep yourself toasty with one of these warm and wooly Space Invaders scarves.
Handcrafted by Edinburgh textile artist Catriona McLaughlin (aka Wildcat Designs), this new Space Invaders scarf (version 2.0)
USB memory sticks are a dime a dozen these days, so you’ve really got to stand out from the crowd if you want to get noticed. These soft, fuzzy critters will definitely latch on to your digital memories in a way you won’t soon forget.
Designed by artist Nifer Fahrion of NifNaks, these invertebrate USB drives are handmade using wool felting techniques.
Here’s another fun Portal-inspired craft goody — it’s a plush, knit version of the game’s Weighted Companion Cube. Now you may ask, how can something so soft and fuzzy qualify as “weighted”?
I guess we just have to allow some artistic license to the creator of this handstitched wool cube.
I suppose you could take the Creative Commons licensed pattern she provided and fill yours with rocks or concrete in place of the recommended foam filling if you want the appropriate heft required for solving puzzles in the test chamber.
Check out this toasty Space Invaders scarf I stumbled on earlier today. The arcade-inspired wool scarf would make a great gift this holiday season for the video game fanatic on your list (assuming they’ve already got a Space Invaders sweater in the closet).
An army of pixelated invaders dot the knit scarf in shades of blue, purple and magenta.
Seems like the latest trend in technology is to make fabric versions of your favorite electronic gadgets. A couple of weeks back it was the felt Nintendo.
This week, some kid’s Mom was way too cool, and knit him a wool iPhone.
