Iron Craft #12: I'm Your No. 1 Fan!

This week's challenge:

"We all have things we are fans of, those things we are just a little bit more into than the average person. I belong to a few fandoms, Harry Potter, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Avengers. I’m an adult fan of Lego. (Yes, I am a little bit nerdy.) You can also be a fan of a designer, musical theater, an author, or a sports team. So for this challenge, let you fan flag flag and create a project inspired by one of your fandoms." (Courtesy of Just Crafty Enough)

This was a tough one for me actually.

I am a fan of lots of things, but I couldn't figure out how to translate that fandom into a project.

So I perused my favourites on Ravelry and found quite a few things that were inspired by things that I am a fan of.

I chose Simon's Cat.

If you don't know Simon's Cat - it's a cartoon about a very hungry cat who basically gets into all sorts of mischief like cats tend to do while trying to get his owner (Simon) to feed him. The cartoon is super popular on Youtube and provides all sorts of entertainment for me and the kids.

Here is one of my favourites:


I love that silly cat!

So I made him.


I can almost hear him meowing and pointing to this mouth implying the he needs food right now. hehehehe

Here is a link to the my Simon's Cat project on Ravelry.

He's really perfect. Now your kids can create their own Simon adventures.
