idea-list #3

Ever since MCM Comic Con (well, since forever really but at a heightened level since last weekend!) I've been keeping my eye out for excellent geeky crafts I can get my hands on! You can see my ever growing list on my geeky crafts Pinterest board - full of craft projects and general inspiration.

 These patterns are just a sample of the many on offer from XStitchMyHeart which I found on Pinterest. Unfortunately you can't buy the patterns from her Etsy shop anymore as it has closed down - however you can email her (xstitchmyheart@hotmail.co.uk) and she will sell them to you via PayPal - because of my interest in 3 patterns I am getting a '3 for £6' deal which isn't too bad! I want to buy more but I treated myself to a number of patterns this weekend already ...

RagingStitches' Etsy shop is full of fun/cheeky patterns such as the naughty Disney princesses one above! I spotted this on her Intsagram page and new immediately I needed it! I finally treated myself this weekend as I am finding some great ideas for the Disney DICraftSwap

Another Etsy shop that I will be shopping at very soon filled with excellent cross stitch patterns - HappyCupcakeCreation has LOADS that I have my eye one - too many to buy them all (until pay day at least) and to share, I would really recommend having a nosey for any geeky cross stitch fans.

I've had my eyes on these Totoro mittens ever since I learned to knit 2 years ago but they require double knitting which I still haven't really had a go at. However I have made huge strides in my knitting over the past few months and so this Autumn I think it will finally be time! You can find the pattern from free over on Ravelry.
