We love Super Mario Brothers!
I am an old-school Nintendo girl.
I loved bringing guys over to my house when I was
in high school...and totally kicking their butts on
games like Mario Brothers 3, Contra, and Zelda.

So, by nature, my kids love Nintendo too!
We love Super Mario Galaxy.
And we love these chubby stars called Luma's.

Last December my 9 year old son wanted to give his brother and sister something fun for Christmas.  I had scraps of fleece in the sewing box and some stuffing...the perfect gift was born...and it was FREE!

Step 1: The beginning...

To begin, we played a little Super Mario Galaxy!

I had my son draw a sketch of what a Luma looks like.
I drew it to fit a regular letter sized paper and cut it out.  I made sure the arms and legs were symmetrical--and there was a cute little curl on it's head!

We cut it a half inch larger than the pattern, all the way around. 
I pinned the fleece together, right sides together and did the stitching on the sewing machine.  Leaving a 3 inch hold on the stars side.   We made 4!  A yellow, 2 blue and a snowflake pink!
<p>I like Rosalina </p>
<p>They are so cute! Definitely going on my list for pressies!</p>
My friend made <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-Mario-power-star-plush/" rel="nofollow">something similar</a> for my other friend in march this year.
I will make one for my niece.
Omg I love these!!! Good job - they look great!! :)
Oh so cute! I have a friend that would love these. :)
