The last decade has seen something of a renaissance of craft; a grassroots resurgence of folk arts and archaic methodologies. One of the more fun branches of this movement is geek craft; works celebrating the artist's love of video and computer games, classic sci fi, role playing games, etc. My favorites are those based on classic NES games, like the above Punch-out! scarf by Beatboxtaun. 8-bit graphics are the perfect jumping off point for a ton of craft mediums. Remember those perler beads you played with as a child? Sooo right for 8-bit re-creation, like these coasters by lost mitten.
Cross stitch and plastic canvas too, like these cross stitch pinback buttons by pOOm plastic:
How about mosaic? Yeah, we got that. By popmaw
The coolest thing about these is that they are all super easy to make. That's right, you can do it! I especially recommend trying out perler beads and plastic canvas, they are very handy for making all kinds of cases, i.e. for your DS or your ipod. And remember, what I've shown here is just the tippity tip top of the iceberg.
