A little Goomba plush

I’m a sucker for cute things. I really do enjoy crochet cute things with big eyes. Goomba was no exception. For Mario fans, you should recognize this little cutie. I made him for a gift a while back and never got around to posting photos of him. He was about 10cm (4″) in height. I used 5 different types of yarn (mostly Bernat Supersaver or Red Heart Supersaver; the feet were out of Bernat Satin).

I did not use a pattern (I made it up as I went along) and I will not be publishing a pattern for him (mostly because I don’t remember what I did and because Goomba is a trademarked character by Nintendo). I hope you like him.

2012 Resolutions

So it’s been a while… School kept me pretty busy from September-December and then there were the holidays, so I didn’t have much crafting time. But the upcoming term should be better – I have 3 classes and only need to go to campus 2 days out of the week (slacker schedule is slack). So I do plan on getting more crafting time in during the times when I’m not working on things for school.

My 2012 resolutions for are:

  1. Blog more often! I’m aiming for once a week (minimum). Bonus points for more than once per week.
  2. Opening the Pattern Shop (still in the making, still have designs tucked away for that).
  3. Just craft more, photograph projects in progress and finished and document them here (goes with #1).

Hopefully I can keep them!

Upcoming posts will be about:

  • Baby bear hat (that was gifted)
  • More doll clothes (knitted)
  • Christmas presents(!)
  • New needles (after they arrive)
