kirby's epic yarn
Have you played Kirby's Epic Yarn? If you read this blog, you should play this game. I realize that I'm a few months behind, as this game out a few months back, but I had to wait until my brother's birthday. PJ asked for the game, but was a little disappointed. He's been playing it, but felt like it's kinda girly.
So I watched him and today I even played it for a while, and guess what? It's girly! Guess what's even better? It's super crafty! If you can't tell from the video, this is what the graphics look like:
With every level you hear more and more of me saying, "ooooh, it's sooo cuuuuteeee!" There are buttons and yarn and felt and stitches and zippers and I nearly died when I saw the eyelet. I kept thinking that I want to make things that look like that. And when I looked on Flickr, I found that someone had:
Flickr user, Malarious!, created a whole photo tutorial for making your own characters from the game, and they match the game! I'm quite impressed.
And then there's this lovely applique/embroidery:
I love it!
If you like cute, crafty, sweet and girly, I suggest you get this game. Or at least go onto YouTube and watch all the videos of it. I guarantee it will get the creative juices flowing!
