My uber -crafty friend Gwen made the cutest little Mario-inspired birthday party decorations.
She's one of the most creative gals I know, and has one of the most generous hearts of anyone you'll ever meet.
I just had to share them with you.
wool felt, machine-stitched around the edges, added a little stuffing, then stitched them the rest of the way closed. Insert a chop-stick or bamboo skewer to finish. (Sorry, no pattern available - just free hand your best 'stache.)
The pipes are PVC pipes from the plumbing department at your favorite hardware store, spray painted in Mario colors.
