Hello everyone! I’ve got a new pattern that I’ve recently added to my Etsy shop 😀 I’ve been in a witchy mood ever since the Hogwarts House Plush Pattern I released back in July, so I thought for the next leg of my Halloween projects I wanted to make a witch hat! A classic cone style hat is a really fun simple project that you … Continue reading New Shop Pattern! Animal Ear Witch Hat
Hello everyone! I’ve got a new pattern that I’ve recently added to my Etsy shop 😀 It’s a little pet project of mine to create as many cute steampunk things as possible, so many years back I designed these classic aviator caps but added animal ears to them. Since then I’ve had a lot of requests to share the pattern, so that day is finally … Continue reading New Shop Pattern! Steampunk Aviator Cap

Probably even more obscure than some of the other nerdy holidays I’ve been celebrating, today is International Steampunk Day! I can’t seem to find why today in particular is Steampunk Day, as some have claimed that today is H.G. Wells’ birthday – though it’s not – but there you have it! I sorted through all of my scraps to and put together the best I could with what I have.
At the moment I don’t have a lot of hardware, which you must admit can really help the look of a steampunk item, so I did the best with what I had and looked to some leftover turn-lock closures to make this next project. I started thinking of some of my favorite Jules Verne books and thought a journal cover with a giant squid a la 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea would be a nice fit ^-^ It’s not exactly scientific, but it’s sure adventurous! It’s sized to fit a standard composition book, so you can continually switch out the book once you’ve filled it up with all your epic stories and start fresh! On top of that, there are 8 pencil slots so you could also sketch to your heart’s content as well ^w^!
Well, check this out 😀 I’ve gone steampunk! I realize despite my nerdishness that I’ve never actually gone out of my way to show how much I love steampunk. But here it is! Granted, this is a very simple rendition of my fandom, since I was limited to just using my scraps, but I’m glad I finally got to do something with an alternate-future flair … Continue reading Freebie Friday: The Scientist’s Satchel
