While cruising the internet, we came across another excellent example of what you can do with textiles. The "Mario Blanket" by Gege-Crochet is the coolest blanket we've seen in a while. This really brings us back to our childhood and spending hours trying to rescue The Queen!
Even more amazing is the fact that Gege didn't use a pattern: "There is no pattern that I followed. I searched the internet for screen shots of SMB and then used them for the map I had in my head." The blanket is made out of acrylic wool, weighs close to 8 pounds and is fabricated using the Tunisian crochet, which offers a less square stitch. The blanket will not be produced again, as it was a birthday gift for her husband, who must be a big Nintendo fan. We have linked to her blog where you can find many more photos of the whole process, which is thoroughly documented. It's also signed in the lower right hand corner!
