Super Mario Lakitu Bros




I tried to make a Lakitu from the Super Mario games. How'd I do? I'm not sure, the goggles came out weird and the cloud was a pain in the behind but here it is for you to judge.

Assembly
Using black yarn and a back stitch put the black rings on the back of the shell
Attach head and arms to the belly, the head should hang forward slightly to go over the cloud

Sew cloud pieces together with one in the middle and 5 around, I sewed them to the middle for 7 stitches each so they overlap, then I sewed the sides together for 4 stitches each, then the back piece, before closing the final side stuff firmly and shape.

Attach shell to back of cloud with the chin laying over the cloud and the arms looking like they are hugging the cloud.
