You can say a lot of things about BioShock’s Big Daddies. Cuddly really isn’t on that list; the hulking metal protectors are, in fact, pretty anti-cuddly. But all it takes to soften them up a little, it seems, are a few beads.
Sprites are popular projects among crafters, especially those who work with Perler beads, so there are always lots of examples of sprite art around. That said, it’s rare to find sets with which you can recreate entire mini scenes of games, but you can with these Super Mario World sprites!
Here’s another insanely amazing Perler-beaded creation from lostmitten: the question mark block piggy bank! Lostmitten really got the appearance of the block spot-on.
Put coins and even paper bills inside! Or mushrooms and flowers and stars and leaves.
