Harmonden’s “pixel” crochet pieces make great throw rugs or bright wall hangings for the kid obsessed with Super Mario, Minecraft, Megaman, and other characters and games.
I love how the little crochet squares work so perfectly for the pixelated shapes of the running Mario and Luigi, as well as the Super Mario mushroom. And the Giant 8 Bit Xbox Controller Rug would look awesome on the side of my son’s bed.
Prices are also pretty great, with some of the smaller, less-detailed rugs starting at only $20, going up to around $50 for more complicated styles.
Minecraft fans will probably love sleeping near a Creeper—don’t worry, this one won’t explode—though I find the square shape is a little less crisp when created out of crochet squares which have a bit of variance to the edges.
Don’t see what you want in the shop? Message the Etsy shop owner and collaborate on your own idea for a pixel-y rug. Me? I’d want a few brightly colored Pac Man ghosts floating around the floor so I could make that noise when the kids step on one. You know what I mean. –Christina
