The Dr {Mario} is in!

Friday, May 6th, 2016

This blogger has been pretty unwell recently (hence the lack of posts – many apologies, Sprite Stitch readers!) with various ailments. Because of that, I went on a little discovery tour of the internet, looking for Dr. Mario stuff! I’m not sure I would entrust my health to this particular doctor, but I did find a few nice items to share!

Wednesday, February 10th, 2016

Dottie Torres, aka Gimmeswords, makes wonderful polymer clay stuff including miniatures and jewellery. But it’s her statues that are really awesome – I’ll let you see why!

Above are Bowser Jr with his Clown Car, Deku Link doing his flowercopter thing and FFIX’s Vivi. They are all hand sculpted and painted. These one-of-a-kind statues are all for sale in Dottie’s Etsy shop, but she has photos of more of her work on her website, http://dottietorres.com/ – including this awesome Light World Map from A Link to the Past!

Mario and Modern Art Mashups

Monday, February 1st, 2016

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.

Cool Stitching Shows What’s Really Inside Mario!

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

Apparently, it’s more Mario!

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.

Super Mario Hanging Mobile

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

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!

Mario Mobile 1

Mario Mobile 2

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!

Mario Castle Bunk Bed

Friday, January 1st, 2016

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!

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!

Mario Felt Petey Felt Goomba Felt Luigi Felt

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!
