(Near) Leeds, Un...
I kept it all fairly simple apart from using some pretty flowery blue fabric for his overalls, as well as some weird mottled fabric from an old pillowcase that was the closest thing to Mario skin colour (with perhaps a skin disease). I sewed the individual pieces together to make the front, I sewed the elements onto his face at this point too, then made up the back. I decided that I needed a lining as my stitching had left tiny gaps that might fail when the plushie was stuffed. As I was sewing him up I started adding stuffing, much easier to do this as you go than at the end when you have fiddly bits like arms and legs to fill. Then I finished stuffing and sewed up his head. I then added another this curve of red fabric for the peak of his cap. And then I was done :)
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
