Fanart doesn't just come in paper, ink, plastic, and clay. Sometimes it comes in the form of cross-stitch samplers, plush toys, applique crafts, or big-headed crochet dolls. Bear and Bird gallery's Sew Nerdy show highlights those fan artists who prefer to work with cloth, foam, batting, thread, and yarn.
These are just a small sampling of the crafts appearing in Sew Nerdy: A Geek Craft Extravaganza, running at Bear and Bird in Lauderhill, Florida, through August 11th. But if you can't visit the pieces in person, Bear and Bird has posted the entire catalog to Flickr. Many of these quirky crafts are available for sale, so if you've been looking for the perfect Star Trek sampler to hang on your wall, act fast.
