I just agreed to make a gift for my sister to give to her bff. She wants the Mario Bros. Mushrooms that can be found here. She wants all 4 of them, hopefully, by May 21. I could only find the yellow color in cotton yarn (yuck!), so I decided to go ahead and do all of them in cotton. FYI: cotton yarn is not good for amigurumi.
So, to distract myself for a few minutes, I made a tawashi. Pattern can be found here. I just happened to have the yarn they used in the demo, so I knew exactly how it would turn out. You can see the one I made below. Doesn't look horrible. Can't wait to use it.
Keep on Krafting.
