Crazy me thought it would be a good idea to sew a Nintendo. I hand dyed the felt, hand sewed it and embroidered all the details. It took me 2 weeks!!!! I hope you like it.



I made the system with an opening cover so that games can be put in and removed and I made Mario 3 and Duck Hunt games:




I made a controller and a gun that can both be plugged in and unplugged:


And here's where my obsessive compulsive behavior comes in, I made a television with interchangeable Mario and Duck Hunt screen shots on them that are attached to the tv with velcro:

That is so amazing! So much detail and it's just perfect....and the interchangeable screens! I'd love to see an "action shot" of someone blowing on the cartridge...hahahahaha

Is it in a gallery or something? It looks like it's on a pedestal with a note in front of it.

Great job - it's making me really nostalgic right now!  Grin

You deserve "This rocks!"

Yes it's on display at Argyle Fine Art Gallery in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  I was so rushed to finish it I didn't get a chance to take any pics of it at home.
