Crafty on the Tube

I'm not very handy with a needle & thread, but fortunately a number of people are. Even more fortunate that some geeky craftspeople have an interest in the London Underground too. Meg Pickard is making a
cross stitch version of the Tube map and has kindly put up some instructions on how to make one yourself.

It's not quite finished yet, but is already looking pretty good. If you need to find King's Cross Stitch station, you know where to go.

If that's not enough craftiness for you, M@ Brown from the Londonist showed me his brill Oystercard wallet the other day. His wife knitted it for him and it's almost like an iPod sock.

I love the initial and the little roundel logo.

If you spot any cool & crafty Tube items, let me know & I'll feature them soon.
