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!

Mario Kart Characters Crochet Blanket

Saturday, August 8th, 2015

Today’s crafty piece was submitted to our Facebook page by Stephanie Taylor.

She crocheted this lovely blanket for her son’s birthday. It took around 150 hours, from April to July, to create each square and then put it together. Stephanie used 42 colours of yarn and made all of it in single crochet stitch.

Here are some close ups of the Bowser and Mario squares:

And just before the squares were all joined together:

Stephanie chose 16 images of her son’s favourite characters from Mario Kart and got them turned into charts at the “Momma’s JAM Pack Crochet Word Charts” website.
I think it turned out really well and I hope Stephanie’s son loves it!

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!
