My Creative Space...



I thought I'd give you all a quick update on the progress of the Mario Mushroom Blanket I'm trying to make for my son's birthday.  I've finally started joining the squares together... and his birthday is next month so I do hope I get it finished in time!!

I decided to go with a blue background in the end.  It seems rather fitting, especially since that is the colour of the sky in the Mario games.  The blue is going to be around the whole mushroom eventually.

Can't wait to finish it and show you what it looks like!

For more crafty makings go here.

  15. I actually started my own squares to make one of these just today! I was thinking of making it for my boys for Christmas but fear I may have left it too late and end up making a patchwork one instead.

    I love the turquoise border!
