gentlestitches entry in Evil Squirrel competition 2015

Serious gamer’s get VERY excited. Presenting a brand new SNES found at Savers thrift store and still in it’s box! Rainbow Donkey is challenging Croc to a round of Super Mario All Stars while a large group of amigurumi critters wait for their chance to play the winner. In the forefront are the thumb war finger puppets made for me, my son and my friend Vanja at AmigurumiBB  by Jennifer at squirrel picnic in a make it challenge. Rainbow donkey was made by me but pattern designed by Jennifer and can be found here.

This post is my entry for Evil Squirrels 2nd annual competition which is to include a game and at least two species of animal players.  An interesting point made by my son about the old games is that everything was SUPER! Super all stars, Super Nintendo, Super Mario Bros. So have a Super bit of nostalgia and ……

Wish me Super good luck!

An entry for a competition hosted by Evil Squirrel’s Nest for an opportunity for fun and prizes.  The rules are use a possum, squirrel and unicorn in any medium at all. Obviously my choice includes hand-made critters and amigurumi. The possum is an Australian common brush tail and we have them living quite close. They are very sweet little fellows. The squirrel is a glove squirrel which are lots of fun to make from an old glove! The unicorn is from the fabulous pattern of Jennifer from Squirrel Picnic. It is a gift to my son who requested “one just like Jennifer’s!”  Jennifer very kindly gave me the eyes so that my (almost) finished product does indeed look quite a lot like the pattern. Let us say they are related.  I leave you with a picture of the three friends before they walked into the bar!
