I am a big fan of what I like to call ‘extreme craft’, you know, stuff that doesn’t quite fit the stereotype of craft, and I find it all over the place. Pinterest is a great source (check out my Extreme Craft board), Regretsy is another but Buzzfeed.com is where I found this little nugget.
Noortje de Keijzer knitted herself a life-size man as part of her design school graduation and he turned out to be quite the hit as far as boyfriends go.
You can read more about her project and the book that evolved from it, here.
I am pretty sure that my friends would love him (which would be a first!)
