Moment of Geek: Vintage Typewriter Softie

Last week's moment of geek champion the Computer Monster might look at this cute and creative typewriter softie and see lunch, but I see a fun geeky craft project that deserves kudos and a permanent place on a desktop. Its creator, a crafter that goes by the name of blueblythe, says it is modeled after her boyfriend's great-great-grandfather's typewriter. "It took me several weeks of non stop sewing to finish," says blueblythe. "The felt is hand dyed and the details are embroidered. I added some real screws that I tarnished in vinegar. The roller rotates so that a piece of paper can be added with some typed words on it."

Aww, it's cute! I once bought a vintage typewriter --- it was a travel typewriter set into a bright orange suitcase --- and I absolutely loved that thing.
