For the Video Game Swap, my partner listed Fawful from Super Mario Brothers as one of the characters she likes.  I was clueless as to this character, but after some research found he would a likely canidate for a stuffie, and I was determined to make a geeky stuffie!  I could have done a moogle or something more common, but this was one that had never been done before.  So I printed off a picture and went to work (w/ my limited stuffie making knowledge).  I did all the sewing by hand (and manly in the car driving back and forth across Washington state on vacation), so it did end up taking me a long time to do.  My family gave me many confused looks as I was stitching away.  "Fawful??"  For the most part, they are all nerds and figured out who it was after I told them which video game it was from.  "Oh, from Super Mario Brothers, I think I remember him."  But still gave me weird looks for picking such an obscure character to do.  Meh, its what my partner wanted!  ^_^


Upclose and personal w/ the dastardly man himself. 


And him posing w/ a picture of himself that I used as the inspiration.  Normally he has legs, but I opted for legless. 

His body and jacket are made from fleece, his eyes and mouth are felt.  I wanted him to be pretty much snugglie (despite his maniacal nature) so that why I opted for fleece over felt for the most part.

The picture doesn't show it, because at the last minute I realized that I forgot to add his little wisp of black hair on the top of his head.  I did that w/ puffy paint.  ^_^

Thanks for looking!

Looks great! I think he's definitely one of the odder and more interesting characters in the Mario Universe!

Hoooly crap I loved Fawful! I never expected to see a stuffie of him, but who can complain? You did such an impeccable job on him. Your swap partner is now officially envied.
