I've been on a Mario kick lately with crocheting. Maybe it's because there are so many free patterns out there for Mario-themed amigurumi... Anyway, I liked the way this one turned out:
Pattern found here. I used #10 crochet thread (again - I use it for most of my projects) and a #7 hook. I even had lots of help from my in-laws' kitties! (I made it while visiting them over Thanksgiving.) It is about 2 inches tall and maybe half an inch wide.
More Mario themed objects to come - I've been busy lately. :)
