Mind Crafts Episode 1: Aquaman Bathing Suit

Hi! My name is Ashley, and I love crafts. Also? Movies. Especially horror. And comic books and video games. (Obviously.) Usually, I have to choose between these interests — but not anymore! (Not here anyway.)

Because on this blog, we’re going to work on nerd-inspired crafts, cooking, baking, brewing, and gardening projects.  It’ll be like if Weird Al and Martha Stewart had a baby. But that baby was less funny, not rich, already 30, and spent her free time (which is ample) showing you how to crochet whatever came into her head that morning. KIDDING! I’m gonna plan a little better than that.


So, without further ado: WELCOME TO MIND CRAFTS! To get started, just click the play button on the video above. And afterwards, check out the information below for tips and supplies and how you can help me make this the most awesome craft blog ever!

Aquaman Bathing Suit: Tips and Supplies

two-piece aquaman bathingsuit

For this Aquaman bathing suit, I used: Views A and D of Kwik Sew Pattern 3239, “Fishscales” fabric (#PS-3950) from Spandex House, and a standard sewing machine with a zigzag stitch

On a Justice League difficulty of, say, The Flash to Superman, this is, appropriately enough, about an Aquaman-level project. If you run into any challenges, feel free to ask questions in the comments below! And if you make one or any other awesome geeky craft, then we want pics. Share them here, or you can also hit us up on our Facebook page.

Now that We Know Each Other, Let’s Hang Out!

If you’re curious about what I’m crafting, then find me masquerading as “Sqwidy” on Pinterest or Twitter. Also, feel free to Tweet project ideas or crafting-related questions. Tweet @sqwidy or use the hashtag: #MindCraftMailBag. You can also reach us the old-fashioned way: We’ll share your awesome tips, post your sweet projects, and answer all your burning questions here.
