idea-list #16

So most people who know me and B know that we LOVE Avatar the Last Airbender (just look here at one of my earliest posts, showing off my hand made Avatar blanket!), and similarly Avatar The Legend of Korra. We are very behind on watching Korra though (no spoilers please!) and in order to get back into the swing we just watched the whole of series one of Korra this weekend to get us set up for the next few seasons. In doing so my love of the show and philosophies have been reincarnated with a fervour.

I have for so so long wanted to learn how to needle felt, and this little Appa just fills me with that desire all again - doesn't he just look so adorable? Similarly the needle felted Pabu (Bolin's trusted companion) would make the perfect pal for Appa, and wouldn't you say he looks enough like a real animal that he might even work as a present for someone who isn't an Avatar fan.

Korra is such a wonderful character - a really well thought out, strong female lead - and I would love to be able to make something of her because of this. Crochet is my forte in this sort of thing but so far I haven't been overly impressed with the pickings online. However this surely will encourage me to design one for myself, and I think I would relish the challenge! I will say this however, the hair on the dolls above is spot on!

The link for this pin is only an image, and so I can't really tell whether this is a dress or an apron! I think it will make a beautiful apron though for work round the house (while saying 'yip yip' of course!) and with the simple bold shapes it should be easily replicated when I am so inclined to make the time!

At the Drive In has these great prints on dictionary pages for reasonable prices, and as well as Zukko they sell Korra, Aang, and several other pieces from really all the best sorts of geeky lines! I will have to treat myself to one/several when I have a better place to hang them (*coughcough* christmas present idea anyone?) but it could also be replicated on a more simple level, perhaps with a solid block template?


This really is just the tip of the crafty ice-berg when it comes to Avatar themed crafts - you can see more of my inspiration over on my geeky-crafts pinterest board! I would love to know if you like Avatar - which of these crafts would you best like to have a go at? Now I must impatiently wait for the weekend to roll round again so that B can come home and we can watch series two of Korra!!
