Raccoon Mario Latch Hook Kit

After my Escher latch hook rug this was one of the ones that I wanted to do next the most.  I actually didn’t have the proper yarn colors though so Robo was completed instead.

 

Mario is such an iconic character that has been used in so many different games, with different art styles, that choosing a single image to represent him was actually rather difficult.  I ultimately decided to go for a classic look, one that older gamers will remember him by best.  I will likely make several different versions of Mario eventually, but I have to give some love to Bowser and Peach first.  Maybe even one of toad…
