CRAFT: Geek Crafts

Many crafts lend themselves well to recreating pixellated images. Projects made with perler beads, cross stitch, and knitting all are constructed from small square-ish bits that together make up a low-resolution image plane, perfect for 8-bit video game scenes. Here’s a roundup of our top pixel crafts. Did we miss your favorite? Post it up in the comments!
