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


• One of those art-meets-science pro­jects to begin, via Make: a blanket that knows its own shape. The tech­nical spe­cific­a­tions aren’t amaz­ing, but it looks com­pletely wonderful.

• Not one to try at home, but check out this amaz­ing mul­ti­me­dia install­a­tion piece from artist Jeff Lieberman fea­tured on Boing Boing. It’s made of 3,600 tiles of LCD glass, 10 foot wide and 90 long – you really have to watch the video.

• Another clever-but-not-too-practical-for-the-likes-of-us idea: faux wall­pa­per made out of stick­ers. It looks really neat, but I’m fairly sure it would be insanely expensive.

• Surprisingly prac­tical is this cool fox lamp tutorial – the import­ant com­pon­ent is appar­ently ‘Stiffy’ Fabric Stiffener used to stiffen the fab­ric into a hard shell. I’ve never heard of such a product before, but now I have I can think of sev­eral pro­jects where Stiffy would be use­ful. (And that sounds so wrong!)

• I’ve knew crochet­ing was pop­u­lar but I didn’t know it was an Olympic event! Okay, not really, but as part of the cul­tural Olympiad Shauna Richardson has cro­cheted three huge lions – unfor­tu­nately the art­icle doesn’t have great pic­tures, but they still seem very impressive.

• And finally Craft brings us a Massive Star Wars Craft Roundup For Star Wars Day – that’s May the Fourth (be with you), in case you’re not a nerd. I love the friendly Bantha.
