My cousin is obsessed with Mario games on her DS so I decided to make her a slip case with the grow mushroom from Mario. This was also my first Tunisian crochet project so I wanted to pick something small and somewhat simple. She loves it.

I worked the pattern out using MS Excel. Just set the cell dementions to squares and use the background fill to change each cell to the right color

awesome!  Cheesy One of my first crochet projects was a DS case, but it was just a little DS shaped bag, it wasn't cool like this one  Roll Eyes I've never done tunisian before, but I was thinking about trying it for a project I'm starting now. Is it hard?

It took a little getting used to, its kind of a blend between crochet and knitting and since I already knit it was not that big of a shift for me but I can see how it would have taken more getting used to if I didn't have the knitting background. There are some really great youtube videos that I watched to help me get started, I just searched tunisian crochet and it pulled up a ton of videos.
