Ever feel like you can't get ahead in life? Then this is the backpack for you!
^Always wanted to say that. :3
So, do you remember playing Mario Kart playing multiplayer and you're in first place. And then all of a sudden, on one of your friends' screens, you hear that unmistakable hissing sound of a blue shell being hurtled at you? In the early games, you'd fall back and to the side. On the later games, you'd just fall back and, if someone couldn't pass you, try to take the nearest driver out with you.
And then you realize that the mushroom that you've been saving since Lap 1 (it's Lap 3) will finally pay off! Instead of using it at the finish line just to make your friends grumpy, as the flying blue shell in honing in on you, you wait for it to drop and then use that red mushroom to give you that extra boost of speed. The blue shell detonates harmlessly behind you (and in the face of your number 1 competitor), leaving you to coast across the finish line, the champion of another race.
Yea, long description. But I knew I had to make this backpack, because I ended up having a dream about its pattern. I mean, when my dreams start having me crochet in them, it was meant to be.
"So, the pattern can be like this; and this; and this." *wakes up* "Crap. Now I have to start on it!" XD
Nintendo owns Mario. I don't. Simple as that.
