As usual, cross-stitch lends itself perfectly to video game crafts. Craftster user Diana dOr whipped up Raccoon Mario for her sweetheart. She only had to play the game for two days for inspiration.
In honor of finally
wearing down convincing my husband that we need a Wii, here is a funny 1.25″ pinback button from Etsy user Zelas. You can also order it as a magnet. Who doesn’t like to play with their Wii?
This made the rounds a while back but somehow I missed it. Michael Karpinski made a fully functional subwoofer that looks just like a question mark brick from Super Mario! That’s a nice paint job – too bad it gets hidden in his car.
Ok, this isn’t exactly a craft… this is a 1Up Mushroom Lamp sold by the folks at Guruguru. Pretty cool looking and affordable too at only $8.50. They don’t say how big it is though, which is aggravating. I bet it would be easy to make if someone put their mind to it – any video game crafters up for it?
UPDATE: It’s gone from their site now.
Topgeargorilla is showing off the Super Mario Tea Set he made about 3 years ago in a high school ceramics class. It includes a mushroom teapot, a bomb-omb sugar holder, and a star spoon. He says he’s not happy about the whole thing, but I think it looks great!
My daughter got a Perler bead set for Christmas. The first thing I thought of when I saw it was “That would be great for videogame characters!” So, last weekend I made a Mario Question Box. It now proudly hangs from my rear view mirror in my car. Now I’m hooked. I want to do a thousand different things with them. You’ll see lots more Perler crafts here.
