Mobiles are lovely for babies’ rooms, but what’s stopping adults from having them as well? Nothing, of course! Which is great, because not only do they exist, but they are available in all sorts of designs. Including this cute little Super Mario one!
Created by MadamFandom on Etsy, this mobile is made out of perler beads and chains. There are Thwomps in the main circular structure, Mario dangling in the centre and glow in the dark Boos all around. An item like this would make a great addition to a games room!
FUS RO DAH!
I’ve been re-playing my way through skyrim over the last few weeks and its got me thinking about crafting and cross stitchings for the game. Here is a roundup of some of the cool projects out there that people have done… there were a lot to choose from, so here are my favorites.

So many awesome projects to choose from…
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from browsing the many craft and DIY sites on the internet, it’s that just about anything can be upcycled and repurposed into amazing and wonderful things. I never made the connection between vinyl records and clocks until today, when I found this cool item!
This clock, from Vinylastico on Etsy, features Link and Zelda in a pretty Art Nouveau styled design. It’s 12″ (30cm), It’d look awesome on any wall!
The shop also sells tons of other clocks, including ones from games and movies, as well as custom designs!
When I come across things like this on my internet travels, it makes me want to pick up crochet again. When my friend gives my hooks back, maybe I’ll attempt this awesome Snorlax!
This adorable (and large) Snorlax was designed and created by Ana Amélia Mendes Galvão, otherwise known as MiaHandcrafter. It stands at about 18 inches (46cm) tall!
So snuggly! If crocheting is your jam, there’s a free pattern on “Mia’s Atelier“. There are other free patterns there too, including Pokemon, anime stuff and more!
Everyone that knows me is already aware, but I think it’s pretty obvious that I like Final Fantasy games. So of course I love to see stitched pieces from some of my favourites! One of the latest is Final Fantasy: Record Keeper, a game for mobile devices. It’s very fun, and has some wonderful sprites!
Delver01 from the forums seems to agree! He’s cross stitched a couple of his favourite ones.
Both pieces are stitched “over two” on 28ct oatmeal linen. Sephiroth has 2,248 stitches in 12 colours, while Ifrit has 3,345 stitches in 19 colours.
I have to say, they turned out very nicely indeed! This Mage thinks she may have to go dig out that folder of Record Keeper sprites and get stitching! (Any suggestions would, of course, be very welcome!)
Firstly, I’d like to wish everyone a very happy New Year from the team at Sprite Stitch! We know it’s been quiet here lately, but things will be picking up from now on!
To kick things off, let’s take a look at this sweet Mario-themed bunk bed!
This pine bunk bed was made by “tdee” for a Mario-nut son. As you can see, everything sticks to the theme! There are Mario stickers, bedcovers, toys and even some cute themed curtains for the windows and door!
If this is something you’d be interested in making, the plans and more can be found here at the Ana White website!
