Its been too long. Life's gotten in the way of keeping up with the blog posts. That sucks. I've felt so drained recently. So tired and fed up of things in general. Then it hit me....aside from the bedroom project (post and pics to come - promise) I've not done anything creative in what seems like forever. That sucks too. I think that this lack of creativity is a direct contributor to my crappy mood of late. Okay, so what does one do in these sorts of situations???? For me, I make something for Tooter.
As you can see from the past posts, I have a slightly Mario obsessed son. (I can think of a lot worse that he could be obsessed with, you know) So, from time to time, I like to feed his obsession with some Mario related craft projects. This one: Mario Mushroom pillow.
We started with a £1 sale pillow from Ikea. Great neutral blue colour. Then, Theo and I raided my felt stash... We used the template from the Mario Mushroom Invites post. Then I just used a simple stitch with embroidery thread. I think it gives it a bit more of a homemade feel like this.

It took a little over 2 hours from start to finish and now he's got something cool and original on his bed that hopefully he'll have for a long time.
(and maybe, just maybe, he'll realise how cool his mom is when he's older) *fingers crossed*
