Stuffing For Brains

There's little more majestic than the 1 Up Mushroom... as it floats on by, after being released from the "?" box it was once enclosed in. So happy that you released it from its tomb, it grants you extra lives with which you may face down the evil King Koopa... Only to discover... your princess is in another castle.

This pattern is from Ana Paula's Amigurumi World 2, though I altered it just slightly (just the spots, really, I made them smaller and put on more of them - I also made them with yarn, rather than felt).
This guy is actually one of my most favorite amis I've ever made. He's just so... perfect. I gave him to my brother, as a gift, because he taught me just about everything I know about video games. <3

This 1 Up was freed from its box in August of 2009.
