The Beady Eyed Craftster is our occasional round-up of shiny (mostly) art and craft related links from across the internets.










• How many projects do you see that combine high-energy physics and quilting? Well, here’s one more: Kate Findlay makes quilts inspired by the Large Hadron Collider.

• Another ‘one per day’ project, in this case one on a subject close to this blog’s heart: Rupa dasGupta has been drawing an octopus a day since 2010. Check out her imaginative, sinuous and often semi-abstract octopodes.

• Still on octopodes, have you seen this cool Tentacle Scarf over on Etsy? Want!

• Also close to this blog’s heart: buttons! Handmade wooden buttons, no less – Katie Startzman shows us how.

• Not something I ever expected to see, but these Downton Abbey Paper Dolls(!) by Kyle Hilton are fun, with some nice bits of design. The Dowager Countess is the best, of course.

• Non craft link time: Radio host Jesse Thorn gives us Make Your Thing: 12 Point Program for Absolutely, Positively 1000% No-Fail Guaranteed Success”, which despite the tongue-in-cheek title is a collection of mini case studies of several indie creators. No crafters, it’s all indie musicians, web-cartoonists and new media types, but many of the ideas are applicable whatever is is you’re making.

Once again, if there any links you’d like to share – leave a comment.
