Apparently, it’s more Mario!
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.

I recently discovered a deviantARTist by the name of DarkeVitrum. He creates some wonderful things in stained glass, but these lamps really stood out.
DarkeVitrum also has an Etsy shop and Facebook page for anyone that’s interested in his work!

Jennuh from the Sprite Stitch forums stitched up this cool Kanto map (as seen in Pokémon Yellow.)
It was stitched on 18ct aida using only 4 colours, and measures around 8″ x 8″. Great job, Jennuh!

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!

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!
