People keep posting Mario things... so I figured...

This guy is a bob-omb bag. His grey fuse box comes off to reveal that the fuse is actually a drawstring!

I made it because... me and a few friends... we dressed up as Shy Guys once, and I refused to carry around a blue frilly purse in a Shy Guy outfit.

I'm... I'm the red one. Embarrassed

(look at these in order, they are a story!  Cheesy)

Basic pattern:
-ch 2 with black and an H hook, sc 6 in 2nd from hook
Keep increasing by 6 until you get 60 around (10 times)
Sc around
Increase by 6 once more (66)
Sc around 10 times
Dec by 6... erm... until you get to 30?
sc around in FLO
sc around once or twice more
(hdc 2, ch 2, sk 1) around and hdc in last
sc in the second hdc, and sc 3 in each ch 2 space around

Erm... don't remember the grey top too well...
Ch 6? join with sl st
Increase by 6 until... erm... 30...
sc around in BLO
Increase one each round for a few rounds

The eyes are felt, and the feet... well, they're basically baby booties. I made an oval with hdc, and when it was big enough sc-ed around once in BLO, then on each round made a bunch of sc dec over one end of the oval... 

And then of course the fuse is just two strands of white held together and.. I think I chained 64 with a k hook? Something long and then weave it through thr holes at the top of the bag. You could also make a wind-up key to put on the back, if you want it to be one of the walking kind.  Wink

We made three of these (see the female one?), so I really should remember the pattern better... oh well, it's what I get for not writing it down.
