For Halloween a couple years ago we did a Super Mario family theme.
Also, I think it was the year before that, I made the four of us a set of stockings.
This year we had another kid making those stocking void.
So for the Christmas stocking swap I mentioned I wanted something for me so I could make matching stockings for the rest of the brood. Kaz decided to take the Mario theme and make me a Peach stocking. I used that stocking as a pattern to make the rest of them. They are all reversible, same on each side.

All together (see Kaz' Peach stocking for me in there?):

Mario, using real overalls fasteners:

Luigi

Toadette:

And finally a Koopa Paratroopa, who wasn't actually in that Halloween with us. I think this is my favorite one. The wing and scales are quilted!

I'm glad you approve, Kaz! I know the darker pink on the bottom was more of a Peach design element, but I figure it would be a good way to tie them all together.

Thanks, bunny!
