inspired by enemyairship ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=330380.0) I made a super mario playset!!  It was a gift for my sister for her 21st birthday, and she loved them, thankfully Smiley  I found patterns by scouring the internet, and will post the ones I used at the bottem.  All the patterns were free, but if makers want me to take them down I of course will Smiley  First up though, pictures!!!

the whole gang!!

birthday girl playin with her toys Smiley

get 'im mario!!!

bob-omb from the amazing wolfdreamer : http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2009/04/bombomb.html  I just made my eyes bigger and added a bit of red fun-fur yarn for the fire
mario mushroom is also from wolfdreamer: http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2009/05/mario-brothers-mushrooms.html I made this one before I learned to do invisible decrease, so his top is a little funky, but I love him all the same
star from shh, i'm counting!:http://arpelia.blogspot.com/2008/03/super-mario-invincibility-star-crochet.html  I worked in continuous rounds, not joining, and it turned out fine for me
goomba from Nerdigurumi: http://nerdigurumi.com/2009/12/goomba-gurumi-pattern.html mine turned out a little odd, because i had very different yarn weights, and had to adjust hook size accordingly. the pattern was great though!!
Mario from geek central station: http://geekcentralstation.blogspot.com/2008/03/free-pattern-aragorn-and-boromir.html .  sort of.  I started out using this pattern, but the colour switch didn't come at a time that looked good, so at that point I just sort of ditched the pattern and started making stuff up.  I did end with the correct number of stitches when I switched to skin colour though, and I did the head following the pattern.  The facial hair, hat, and feet I just made up as I went along (first time I've done that!!  scary!).
sorry for such a long post guys!!  hope you like them!!

thanks so much everyone!!  they took me a few weeks to make...like three I think.  I also started these the exact same time I started working full-time though, so i worked on them very inconsistently.  the most time consuming part was finding flesh-coloured yarn, and making the moustache Cheesy the patterns themselves were very easy to follow, and it probably wouldn't take a dedicated crocheter very long at all Smiley
