Ever since I saw this project on Craftster, I have been wanting so bad to make one for myself.
I mean, how cool is a giant Mario rug made out of granny squares? Ans: too cool. Props to anenemyairship for making this and it being so awesome.
So, now the question to my hypothetical blanket making is: which 8-bit character do I do? Well, I came up with some ideas. Then I looked them up online and then I made a little table of how many colours/squares I would need. What follows is the only thing I accomplished yesterday morning:
So my top two contenders thus far are Mario, followed by 1up mushroom. The upside of Mario: I love him deeply. Plus, he is made up the fewest squares (143 if I forgo the background). Upside of 1up mushroom: he is so cute! Plus, who doesn’t want extra life? The downside of 1up mushroom: it would take 216 squares (not including the background) to make him.
Let’s say it takes me about 10 minutes to make a granny square. That’s 24 hours of granny square making for Mario and a whopping 36 hours for the 1up mushroom!
Obviously this is something that requires careful consideration.
I will think on it.

Hey really cool do you think you could show us how to make these marvolus graphs
Also the Goomba, life shroom and the fire flower can be used as emblems in Mario kart DS.
