Patched together by Buzzfeed user Bsayasane, these Nintendo-inspired quilts combine the relatively new hobby of gaming with the age old past-time of knitting. In keeping with a retro feel, the Nintendo-inspired quilts are rendered in a nostalgic 8-bit motif -- a design that is sure to conjure warm memories of throwing controllers at television screens in fits of unspeakable rage quelled only by the supreme satisfaction of completing a level so impossible that Salvador Dali would blush at the mere sight of it.

The Nintendo-inspired quilts cover a variety of characters. One blanket features Super Mario wearing his classic red hat, red shirt and blue overalls. Another depicts Super Mario in his less well-known, but equally fashionable frog suit. If good guys aren’t your thing, you can always opt for the Winged Goomba quilt. For people who aren’t the biggest fans of the Mario franchise, there are a couple renditions of Kirby.
