Clever Craftsters, I am in desparate need of your help! My 11 year old sister's birthday is coming up soon, and I am in desparate need of some easy craft projects I can give to her, because she thinks that store bought gifts just scream "I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT YOU!"

She loves:
Homestar Runner
Oingo Boingo
Fruits Basket (Anime)
Anything Japanese
Pokemon
Nintendo
Domokun
Hello Kitty
Batman and
The Joker from the dark knight.

I know. She's VERY different from the other kids her age.
So, can anyone out there help me?
Thanks!

make a cute and simple felt purse and make a hello kitty patch and sew it on the front? maybe add some cute little embellishments to it like bows, beads or glitter to it? Depends if she's into the whole 'girly' stuff. xD
Could do the same with Domo kun too. That would be fun. Shocked

Make her a cozy for her iPod, cell phone, etc. if she has one with one of her favorite characters in front.

I've found some really nice hello kitty glass beads on ebay for necklaces

Draw your own Homestar comic?

Make her a home made journal. Either hand bound or decoupage some characters on the front. Then find a patterned stamp to fit the image, stamp the cover and the corners of each page to match. I just thought that up and I'm going to have to use that myself...Yay!

Sew her a hello kitty felt hat?

Hi, don't know if your sister's birthday has passed yet, but you could do a stenciled Oingo Boingo shirt for her.

and I second the iPod/cellphone cozy idea. Or maybe an iScarf, a scarf with a pocket for her iPod or phone.
