Have you visited the Threadnaut Facebook Page lately? On our Facebook page, I allow users to post suggested shop items (different from custom orders) when we have empty store slots to fill. This works in that the person that suggests a product is not obligated to buy the item like they would for a custom order, and I have the freedom to pick and choose through the best ideas, and once made, it can be listed in my shop for ANYONE to buy.
One of the first suggestions Threadnaut received was for a Fire Flower, from Super Mario – the original style, as was show in the picture provided with the post.
I found the perfect little pattern for this guy on blogspot: Super Mario World Fire Flower by Penelope Privett and got to work.
This one was not in the shop for very long before it was claimed!
