2 Weeks...150 granny squares...and a boatload of fishing line later...
I replicated the idea of another crafter... enemyairship did the 7x7 flying racoon mario...which is *amazing* to say the least! I loved it so much I had to do my own...So I created my own pattern in excel...it was my first attempt and I just kinda winged it...then I got to working on my granny squares!
I sewed them all together with fishing line because it's clear...I didn't want to stress over conrasting yarn colors...and thread wasn't going to be strong enough...In hindsight I'm sure there was a softer alternative but I'll save that for another project. For now I'm pretty happy with him.
And one with my son for size comparison...This one is only about 4x5'
Thanks for looking!
