I looooovvve Cooking Mama and can't wait to play this game!  In the meantime here's a journal to store lots of crafting ideas.

Mama's portrait is made from cross-stitched "pixels" (my first attempt at freehand cross-stitch with no pattern) as is her name...I used sparkly floss for the name to try and match the logo on the game box!  The background was made from watercolor pencils that I shaded, then cut out into pixels and rearranged to look more quilt-like.  Mama's knitting project is actually crocheted embroidery floss, because I don't know how to knit!

Hope you like it!

Beautiful and so clever! I love the double pixel effect of the cross stitch plus the square tiles of watercolor!

That's beautiful!  And I'm super impressed that you did it without a pattern!
