We love Super Mario Brothers!
I am an old-school Nintendo girl.
I loved bringing guys over to my house when I was
in high school...and totally kicking their butts on
games like Mario Brothers 3, Contra, and Zelda.
So, by nature, my kids love Nintendo too!
We love Super Mario Galaxy.
And we love these chubby stars called Luma's.
My 9 year old wanted to make something
for his siblings for Christmas...I wanted it to be FREE!
We picked Luma pillows!
(When making a pattern, make it about a half inch
bigger than you intend it to turn out...allowing for seams)
Pin onto fleece and cut 2.
(we had scrap fleece in our fabric bin...but you can usually find remnants at fabric stores for cheap!)
Sew the 2 layers (right sides touching) together.
Leave a 2 inch hole on the side to stuff with cotton.
(you could handstitch the whole thing, but I quickly sewed it on the machine)
Danny did all the stuffing...
And hand sewed up the 2 inch hole...
He made 4!
(1 for himself, and 2 for siblings and 1 for me!)
The next night we cut big black and small white ovals
out of felt and used liquid stitch glue for the eyes!
Perfection! And they match his pajama pants!
He was so proud to give them as gifts for Christmas!
It was wonderful!
