Mario Mushrooms!

So, I am deep in the middle of a few big projects around the house and yard that have to be done before bad weather sets in. Progress is being made, but smaller creative projects are on hold for now--with the exception of a few mushrooms!

Mr. S.'s fourth birthday party was a Super Mario bash--check Care's blog, I'm hoping she'll share her fun ideas! A few Mario mushrooms seemed in order for Mr. S., so I referred back to Rose Langlitz's fun book 'Tasty Crochet', a library favorite , and adapted her cute crochet mushroom pattern into Mario's companions. (Grandma confession: not being too familiar with Mario and his world, I had to check Google images for details!)

Each little guy is about 2-1/2 inches tall. (Of course the blue one is a little smaller.) All the yarn was dug from my stash--I stitched on the white crochet circles, and their eyes are single stitches of black yarn. I love how jolly and friendly they look!

Back to other projects. . .


  1. What a cute idea :) As a crocheter myself I love to see fun projects like this!

  2. Ha ha! I love it!!

    Mr. S. has been having a great time with them, too!


I love feedback. Leave me a comment!
