Mario's eyes are cut from felt (white, blue, black and then white again) and hot glued together. Then hot glued onto his face. The buttons on his suspenders are also hot glued into place, however the suspenders themselves are sewn into place.
The M on his hat is also cut from felt and hot glued into place. The white "circle" on the Logo is crocheted and sewn to the hat. The hat is sewn to his head and the "curls" are sewn to his head and beneath his hat.
Mario took quite a bit of work and has a lot of details ... but it's going to be well worth the effort to make a little boy happy!
And of course, a project that has so many details, is going to need a lot of pictures! ;-)
