I made a Viking helmet that I intended as a gift, but decided that I deserved the first one. I'm currently in the process of making three more - one as the gift I stole, and two others for friends who want one.
Space Invaders Potholders
Another friend saw a picture of my very rough Space Invaders potholders, and asked for a set. I've recently discovered Tunisian crochet and decided that this it was perfect for this. I made two panels for each potholder then sc'd around each panel with black to give me a clean base for the green edging. I joined the left with slip stich and the the right with single crochet. I'll use slip stitches in the future.
Pac Man Ghosts Coasters
Tunisian crochet is perfect for translating 8-bit designs. These are a single panel that I plan on attaching to a cork backing after I block them. Again, I single crocheted around the edge in black before adding the blue edging. I tied and cut the ends (there were so many!) instead of weaving in my tails, and I hope that the knots don't present a problem once I glue/sew the cork on.
They worked up quickly, and I made four sets while I was at it.
