Stuffing For Brains

I honestly can't remember the pattern I used for this little guy... all I remember was that it was entirely in Japanese and I just luckily was able to figure out a way to read it based on the layout of the numbers. (I don't read Japanese... at all.) Most Japanese patterns use stitch diagrams, this one did not. I'm really not totally happy with the way it turned out, but it's still obviously a Mario star. At least, I hope it's obvious. ^_^
This star was made in March of 2009.
