With a shop named "Another Castle Crochet", I figured I needed to make a Princess Toadstool as a mascot. So here she is!





She's 9 inches tall and is wearing the older version of her dress. I used an old Nintendo Power comic as a reference.  Wink Then, deciding that a plain turtle shell backpack would be boring, I made this:





Bowser Backpack! If I weren't out of blue yarn, I'd make a blue spiked shell from Mariokart, too.  Cheesy

OMG!!! Those are SOO cute. Are you considering putting the pattern to Peach in your shop?   Wink  My daughter has been BEGGING me to make her a Peach and I just can't figure out the hair. You NAILED it. Great job!

I know, I know, I hate them too. But it'd be a funny thing to throw at someone, right? I was going to describe it as, "Ever feel like you can't get ahead in life? Then this is the backpack for you!"  Cheesy
