Man Spent 6.5 Years Crocheting Super Mario Bros. 3 Map | Nintendo News
A Norwegian sky diving champion and computer programmer finished crocheting the Super Mario Bros. 3 World 1 map after more than six and a half years.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. When guys knit or crochet they take it to an extreme that leaves me speechless!

It has been requested for a few years and it has finally happened…The PATTERN for the Zelda inspired bomb bag set is now available for purchase!!
Now you can make a bomb bag set yourself!

Progress!!! One square away from finishing Column B. And as you can see I did the diagonal grey and yellow square using my newly acquired skills in diagonal Tunisian (although this one came out slightly more wonky than my test square. I’m pretty sure it will even out when all the other squares get sewn to it.) I have finished 40% of the squares (not all pictured) and am quite happy with how well it’s coming together.

I’m making Pokéballs again! Yay!

The downside to crocheting things of my own creation (no actual pattern) is that I easily forget the little parts that I had improved on and have to almost start from scratch!

It’s fun though, and I’m writing things down this time so I won’t forget. Also making small improvements. I think the button looks better now, and the ball is much tighter and holds form. I just need to go up a size and I think it’ll be even better! (You can’t see the size but it’s a bit too small)

What do you guys think? 😄
