Mario The Seahorse

Meet Mario The Seahorse!

Mario lives in the sea in a lovely bed made of seagrass. He is a terrible swimmer, when he wants to travel long distances he has to attach himself to floating objects, but he has excellent eyesight and he can look forwards and backwards at the same time!

Mario is so easy to crochet, you can make one in every color you love!
