Cute Mario Felt Ornaments

Monday, August 17th, 2015

Crafters have been making ornaments out of felt since felt was invented. I remember making a Christmas pudding one and a Christmas stocking one when I was a small Mage, many moons ago (I still have them, and they get trotted out every year for the tree.)
Melissa, of Tilly’s Hangout, makes far better ones than I could, though!

The Luigi and Petey seen here are my favourites, but Melissa also makes a snazzy Fire Flower. They also come as keyrings. You can buy all these and more in her Etsy store!

Suedre made a very cool quilted bag featuring a ShyGuy on one side and Luigi on the other.

I’m not a quilter, but I can really appreciate all the work that goes into these pixel quilt pieces. (I own a fabulous Black Mage quilt by Quiltoni so I’ve seen close-up what these things are made of.)
I know some of you are quilters, or maybe you know a quilter, and would like to know how something like Suedre’s bag is made. Well, there’s good news – she wrote a tutorial detailing exactly how it’s done!

Please also check out her website, The Bored Zombie, for more crafty greatness!

It looks like it will cluck at any moment! Better not hit it, though.

Blackwork Mario Powerups

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

Stitchmond from the forums stitched these marvellous Mario powerups.

He says, “I did the Super Mario World suits and powerups in backstitch style, like blackwork, except using the normal color palette instead of all black.”
I like that each colour has its own blackwork pattern, and it gives a very interesting effect to the sprites!

There are 6,503 pieces to this quilt, it took 5 and a half months to assemble and the whole thing measures 1.9m x 2.2m (about 6’2″ x 7’2″). It was a gift for Xanatos’ sister – what an amazing thing to receive!
