8-Bit Princess Peach

For her birthday, I am going to make my daughter a Princess Peach rug. I was inspired by a Craftster who did a 7-foot Mario rug for her boyfriend. She used granny squares to represent one pixel. I plan to use smaller granny squares that are only two rounds. They are about 2 inches, so […]

Shiny Pteranodon

I finally finished Shiny – the second Pteranoodon I have made. She turned out pretty good although she is just a tad smaller than the other one. I was hoping she would be much smaller. I plan to redo her maybe with less rows. I might try a very lightweight yarn but not sure if […]
