Mario and Modern Art Mashups

February 1st, 2016 - by blackmageheart

Stitchmond is definitely one of my favourite stitchers. He’s been producing some awesome work recently, and these three mashup pieces are his latest offerings.

Mario Art by Stitchmond

Here we have “Son of Miyamoto” inspired by Magritte, “Marilyn Montoad” inspired by Warhol and “Composition with Red, P Block and Coin” inspired by Mondrian. The patterns for these pieces are on sale in Stitchmond’s Etsy shop – they are in a pack of PDFs that also contain works inspired by Lichtenstein, Da Vinci and Vancouver street artist iHeart.

This one is made with Friendlyfelt, some straps, clips and a zip. Jen didn’t write a tutorial for the bag, but she describes the process well enough that anyone could give it a try!

Mario Silhouette Stitch by down_the_hatch

Reddit user down_the_hatch stitched up this awesome silhouette for a Mario-obsessed nephew.

UPDATE: It was brought to my attention that the person selling the pattern for this stitching did not have permission from the original designer. On behalf of Sprite Stitch, I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to Jake Bacuetes of Pixel Bit Hero and ask that people do not support the Etsy store previously mentioned in this post.
