I love the color scheme.  My husband has this shirt, too.  Did you leave the Piranha Plant off on purpose?  I always thought that was the point of the joke.

hmmm..yes, I didnt do it on purpose. is that the point of the joke? I'm not going any deeper than using a mario pipe instead of a normal pipe...is there another level to the humor in this im missing?

Very nice. The stitching is so clean

thanks! I spent about an hour picking cat hairs out of the stitches!!

hi! I finished this stitching last week, I'm really happy with how it turned out...I'll let the pictures do the talking. the original idea came to me from schnerby, but the pattern/colors/stitching were done by me.

reference - magritte painting

pattern posted here...

I might change the order....I'd like to adhere to the "official" order as they appear at the start of the game and I can't remember exactly how it goes.   I'm uptight about things like that.

im interested to see your pricing...I've never felt like crafts ever sell for a reasonable amount based on the time you have to spend to complete them.

as far as the correct order...there is only ONE thing to do. play through FF1 again...DO IT!

good stuff! I'm a huge ms pac fan! (fixing a mspac cocktail arcade now)

man, is that black stuff hard to work on though...so hard to see. I like to have a light behind it so you're kinda holding the cloth in between you and a light, makes the holes show up so you can see the needle behind better...

those frames are stunning finds...I gotta hit some thrift stores up, its been awhile. its not like there arent a few here in san francisco...

What a great idea!  Makes me want to use one of those "family potrait" frames and do everyone in the mario family!
that is a very good idea! I'd like to see someone do this!

Very nice! but it must be TINY!!

making it must have been hard, since it must be tough to hold onto such a small coin and hammer it at the same time! and how did you manage to keep the design on the outside band?

its not too small...its about a size 10. to hold it I use a pair of vise grips with a piece of leather (to keep the teeth of the grips from denting the ring)...and, plastic mallets dont mar the surface...if you used a metal hammer it would lose its design.

well, I posted a quarter ring a couple weeks ago...here is my most recent attempt. Its made from a canadian large cent from 1919 (only very slightly larger than a US quarter). Its 95% copper, so it might turn a finger green...I've read that you can coat the inside with clear nail polish to prevent it...we'll see. took about 3-4 hours or so to complete...

wow! this is my second favorite gameboy game! (2nd to tetris of course)...I used to spend hours in the car playing this one...

I'm very curious how you did this, but I respect your not saying... Here's my question, and if answered correctly, I'll figure it out for myself.  If you've seen a British two pound coin, it has a lot of funky design around the outside edge that I'd like to leave intact as much as possibly.  But I have to make it about half the size that it is now in order for it to fit my finger... any idea of if it would work?

ive never seen one, but i assume you mean one of these?

and you just want the outer yellow circle? if thats already too big you won't be able to shrink it (as far as I know anyway)

however, the british two pound diameter is 28.4mm...while the US quarter is 24.3mm and the US half dollar is 30.6mm. both the US quarter and 1/2 dollar can be made into the normal range of coin rings...so, you should be able to make a ring out of it...(just maybe not only the yellow outer part)
