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!

Vulpix and Ninetales Stacking Plushies

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

This Mage needs a dose of cute today, and since my kitten insists on being asleep and not fun at all, I turn to the internet! I found these lovely plushies and because cute must be shared, here they are!

Super cute! They’re made by BubbleRhapsodyDesign on Etsy and are designed for stacking in little heaps of adorableness. I like the Vulpix, but I think my favourite is Ninetales. I’d like to see some other stackable ‘mon too!

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.

Jen from Epbot (and Cake Wrecks) made a cute holster bag, in the shape of a Hylian Shield.

This one is made with Friendlyfelt, some straps, clips and a zip. Jen didn’t write a tutorial for the bag, but she describes the process well enough that anyone could give it a try!

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.

It was stitched on 18ct aida using only 4 colours, and measures around 8″ x 8″. Great job, Jennuh!
