For Christmas, Babe got me this awesome book. Just what I need, right? More books to enable my crafting habit.
We needs all the craft books, Precious.
The pin cushion on the front totally caught my eye, but if you know me, you know what I was thinking.
That’s right, Mario.
So, I Binged it up, looking at all the 8-Bit Mario items I could find and traced out some rough shapes that were about the same size as the mushrooms in the original pattern. I ended up making a coin, a piranha plant, a Bullet Bill and and Mushroom. I had a fire flower, but I was worried it would look to busy with it. (I should have put it on there — the back looks a little bare.)
The total project time took about 4 hours or so. I’m fighting the urge to take off the top and add the fire flower (or a 1-up mushroom) just so there isn’t that huge gap between the coin and the piranha plant. (Which probably means I’ll add it in the next couple of days, LOL)
My other crafting present was a kit to learn how to crochet. *snicker* Yeah, I’m about ready to give the yarn to the cat and be done with that already. (No, really, I am going to give it a go this time.)
