I made the Bob-omb from Mario, and he turned out really cute. I used the Wolfdreamer pattern, and it was great. Quick and easy. No changes needed. Definitely check out the rest of her blog, she makes awesome Pokemon crochet dolls! Stocking stuffers for younger cousins/nieces/nephews anyone?
I save up so many neat patterns that I see in a folder on my desktop, and I feel oddly accomplished when I finish one and make a note about the pattern. I have a weird 5 star system for rating how much I like a particular pattern.
