While we’re cranking away here at headquarters on the next issue (Volume 18) of our sister publication MAKE, themed Robots, I can’t help but to Flashback to Beth Doherty‘s iconic Cro-bots from way back in CRAFT Volume 01. The design is simple enough that there’s plenty of room for personalizing your Cro-bot to reflect your unique style. Here is the front and back of Beth’s finished Cro-bot:

It’s so much fun to see how peeps modded the Cro-bot. Here are 8 Cro-bots created by crafters and posted to Flickr. Clockwise, from top left, the Flickr peeps (and bot creators) are: beliael, disco smurf, knitbitch, tattis cuties, luv2stitch, craftapalooza, thebodee, and RunnyCustard:

Here is the Cro-bot project in our Digital Edition so you can crochet your own little robot army.
And you can still pick up a back issue of Volume 01, our Premier Issue, in the Maker Shed.

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
