Incredible Super Mario Bros 3 Crochet Blanket

June 22nd, 2015 - by blackmageheart

Crocheting is an easy(ish) skill to pick up – even I can do it. There are some people who truly master crochet and Kjetil Nordin is one such person. He created this amazing SMB3 blanket.




According to his friend (who posted the pictures online), it took Nordin 6.5 years, or 800 hours, to crochet this whole thing. This includes the time spent hunting for perfect yarn colours, and even starting over when one of the colours wasn’t to Nordin’s liking.

I wonder what his next project will be?

Awesomeness from the March challenge

May 27th, 2015 - by Starrley

Yes, it is indeed nearing the end of May, but I’ve been away awhile and I wanted to share the results of the March challenge with you. The theme was “Crossovers” and the parameters were left wide open.

In first place was stitchingmama with Lego Movie Meets Portal 2:


Coming in a close second was AgitatedMojo with Shovel Knight and Diglett:


In third place was icedragonj, with Journeyer and Latias:

Incidentally, icedragonj also received the illustrious BMH-stamp-of-approval for the interesting character combo.

Awesome as usual, everyone! The event for April and May has been a sampler stitch-a-long. I can’t wait to see, and post, the finished projects!

Keep stitching, everyone. It’s good to be back.

Paper Piranha Plant Flowers

May 9th, 2015 - by blackmageheart

This blogger only ever received flowers once in her life – they were pretty but didn’t last long. A more permament and geeky alternative? These paper Piranha Plant flowers from Tally’s Treasury.



Tally’s Treasury provide a detailed guide (complete with templates) on how to make these yourself. If Piranha Plants aren’t your cup of tea, how about a bouquet of Fire Flowers? There’s a guide for that too!

I discovered these shadowboxes today while reviewing my Etsy feed, and I just love them! They’re made by ThePaperPonyPlace.

They have so many more shadowboxes in their store, too - from videogames to anime, Doctor Who to My Little Pony. Each shadowbox is made with card stock, placed in layers that makes them pop from the background. Check out the shop and their dA account for more!
