I can't draw, I can't write (well, not in English anyway), but I can make hundreds of tiny knots to make this:



(I hope I posted this in the right forum...)

Could probably eBay these for a little bit of money. Not sure if that'd be breaking any copyrights.

Either way, that's pretty cool.

Not bad! You should market these, at least to us.

Those are such an incredible mix of awesomeness and cuteness. I love 'em.

Not going to lie, those are pretty badass.   Mad props.

@ Dincrest, if I could figure out how to best get to your location, I wouldn't mind making one for you.

@ everluck, I'm starting a little crafts club with some other peole who are into crafts and anime/manga/games. We plan to sell our stuff at conventions. Right now I also sell some things online, but it's for the Dutch only.

@ Castnuri, D-rider, Kstar, thanks! I also made some bracelets with space invaders and other classic sprites. I'll show those later.

Okay, so what would you be willing to pay for something like that?

Tomara, you've created monsters:P.  I am clueless about crochet but I'd pay a fair price that takes cost of materials and time spent stitching into account.

There is no crochet or stitching involved, one NES bracelet is made with about 800 tiny knots :) The material isn't every expensive ($1 at most with the current exchange rate), but one bracelet like that takes 3 hours to make. Granted, I can tie knots while I watch TV, but it's not as if I could work any faster if I didn't have the TV on...

Anyway, here are some more bracelets:



And some more traditional ones:

The problem is, the Euro is going very strong right now. If I were to charge you the same as my Dutch customers and make you pay for shipping, one bracelet would cost you 15$ (Canadian). So, I was thinking... maybe we can trade? There are some GBA, DS, PS2 and PSP games I want and games are pretty cheap in the US and Canada. I wouldn't mind giving you 3 (or even more!) bracelets for a game that will cost you less than $20
