Guilty Motivation

.
boy*jelly has been nagging asking me all summer for a new PE bag to use for school.
.
Given that I promised him one last year that never materialised, his pleas became quite fervent by the end of the holidays.
.
I kept putting it off until I could bear the guilt no more and as he is currently obsessed with all things Nintendo, I thought I'd have a go at making a PE bag with Mario on it.
.
3 hours later and here's what I made ...

It was quite fiddly, but I kept thinking of his appreciative face when he got to see the end result.
.
.
.
.
Pleasingly, he declared it to be "amazing"
