ABitOfImagination on Etsy makes these fab video game themed light boxes. Here’s a few I picked out to share.

They are all made using perler beads for the designs, and a shadow box with a light fitting. I really like the effect the light has on the perlers. They’d make lovely display pieces, or great little night lights!

I can’t even imagine how long this must have taken, or how difficult it would have been to build, but it is impressive!

Blackwork Mario Powerups

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

Stitchmond from the forums stitched these marvellous Mario powerups.

He says, “I did the Super Mario World suits and powerups in backstitch style, like blackwork, except using the normal color palette instead of all black.”
I like that each colour has its own blackwork pattern, and it gives a very interesting effect to the sprites!

This piece of awesome was made by Xanatos from the forums.

There are 6,503 pieces to this quilt, it took 5 and a half months to assemble and the whole thing measures 1.9m x 2.2m (about 6’2″ x 7’2″). It was a gift for Xanatos’ sister – what an amazing thing to receive!

Concrete Thwomp

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

I have a Thwomp in my bedroom, it is a plush and scarily accurate looking. However, being plush prevents it from being as accurate as this concrete masterpiece:

The maker wrote a how-to guide so everyone can have a Thwomp (if they want one, that is. And why wouldn’t you?) I have to say, I never thought of using concrete for a craft project!

Forum user 015Ekan and his fiancée decided to abandon the traditional gingerbread house in favour of a Mario castle.

Here it is in all its gingerbread glory, complete with stairs! Sadly, they didn’t have enough room for the flagpole. But it looks delicious anyway!
