Finally completed is my latest project which are the Mario mushrooms. I made two because I was not too happy with the first one – the red one – I made.
Below is the reason why.
The directions in the pattern had suggested sewing on the mushroom’s spots with thread. So I did and from this (photo), it is obvious that my sewing skills is lacking very much.
Unsatisfied, I made the second mushroom – the green one – for another chance to make a better mushroom but also with a different gauge. If you look properly at the photo below, then you will notice that the green mushroom is slightly bigger than the red one.
I am happier with the green mushroom but I thought I could have stuffed it with more stuffing.
Well, well, if this continues, I am going to be my worst enemy. Maybe it is because of my slightly perfectionist attitude that I am critiquing my own work so critically. Or that I’d like everything I do to be in the best condition.
Despite my pessimism, I have to say that I am extremely proud of both the mushrooms’ eyes. I am definitely taking the credit for them.
More photos after the jump!
