Craft Challenge #55 - Pixelate Mama! - Entries Due Oct 1 - Oct 7

Winner announced!  Congrats, theatreorchid!


10/08/10 - Vote now!  Scroll up to see the voting poll!

10/01/10 - The entry board is open!  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=451.0

If youve ever had the pleasure of playing one of the Mama games for Nintendo DS and Wii, such as Cooking Mama or Gardening Mama, you know Mama has been a very busy lady since 2006!

For those of who have not yet played with Mama, heres a little background.  In Cooking Mama, you learn the steps to making delicious recipes with the help of a character named Mama.  Your stylus becomes a universal cooking tool as you prepare raw ingredients, whip up full recipes and even cool down your food by blowing in the microphone!  After Mama mastered the kitchen, she stepped out into the garden with Gardening Mama.  In the garden, you grow everything from flowers and vegetables to fruit trees.  You decorate the garden, play against other friends online and even dress up Mama with new outfits, hair and accessories!

And now... Mama is challenging everyone to master crafting with Crafting Mama!  Learn 40 different projects across a huge variety of crafts: make aprons, mini Mama dolls, birdhouses, patchwork quilts, jewelry, mugs, candles, kaleidoscopes, flower decorations, and so much more!  Look for Crafting Mama in stores this October 26th.

In honor of this upcoming release, were challenging you to craft Mama on Craftster!  Our challenge to you is to make a pixel project of Mama.  What is a pixel project?  A pixel is a single point in a raster image.  So a pixel project is that same concept, but on a larger scale.  Here are some examples of pixel projects throughout Craftster (These are examples of pixel projects in general.  Remember, your challenge is to make a pixel project of Mama!):

With Mama as your inspiration, your pixel project might be a quilt where the squares create an image of just Mamas face, Mamas entire body, or even Mama in her garden or kitchen.  Maybe you'll use tiles to create a mosaic wallhanging of Mama.  Maybe you'll use sequins to represent your pixels and you'll create a tote bag adorned with Mama.  Check out the pixel tag for even more pixel project inspiration, too.   Use your imagination, have fun and get pixelating!  

Our prize package this month should definitely help to inspire you.  Along with a prize from our Craftster Shop, were also awarding this suite of Mama game titles!  Our winner this month will get all of these:

Cooking Mama (Nintendo DS)
Cooking Mama 2: Dinner with Friends (Nintendo DS)
Cooking Mama 3: Shop & Chop (Nintendo DS)
Cooking Mama: World Kitchen (Wii)
Cooking Mama: Cook Off (Wii)
Gardening Mama (Nintendo DS)
Crafting Mama (Nintendo DS)

Disclaimer:  Nintendo is not a sponsor of this promotion.


  • Post your craft during the period of Oct 1 - Oct 7 2010. No sooner.  No later.  On Oct 1 2010 there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Oct 8 - Oct 18 2010.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Do not enter a project, if you've already posted it elsewhere on Craftster.


It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project.


At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner (US or non-US) will get:

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) their project featured on Crafting Mamas website
(4) their project featured on Crafting Mamas Facebook page
(5) the amazing prize package from Crafting Mama!
(6) and this prize from us at Craftster.org -- any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!
