Crochet Nintendo 64 Controller

I was asked if I could make a Nintendo 64 controller pillow. While I think that idea is awesome, I just don't see how I could accomplish it because of the controller's odd shape.

I searched for patterns for a bit and couldn't find any of Nintendo 64 controllers :( I thought the shapes looked easy enough so I was going to try it myself with no pattern.While I think mine came out a bit more cartoon-ish than realistic, I still think I did pretty good! I spent the better part of today working on this and I am very happy with the results :) 




Knock-off controller we had laying around for size/accuracy comparison
I even wrote notes while I was crocheting so if anyone is interested, I could write up a pattern!

Lucas loves Megaman

I crocheted Megaman almost TWO years ago. Lucas still plays with him almost daily. Megaman has survived getting a "bath" in the toilet by Lucas and a few trips through the washer, along with the tortuous ways that a little boy plays with his toys.

I did my first repair on him today when the stitches holding Megaman's arm came loose. Lucas sat next to me while I was performing this delicate procedure & he whispered, "Mommy, I'm scared. I can't look!" And he covered his eyes as I took my sewing needle and quickly finished the repair.

This got me thinking about how long Megaman has lasted and has been so well loved.. & how much my sewing skills have greatly improved.

Megaman the day I finished making him & almost two years later on the right.
