Mario Family (ジャガーミシン刺しゅう専用ソフトマリオファミリー Jaguar Embroidery-Only Sewing Machine Software: Mario Family) is a piece of software for the Game Boy Color released only in Japan to be compatible with Jaguar's JN-100 sewing machine. The JN-100 came with a cable that would link it to a Game Boy Color, and in the game the player can choose one of several designs that the machine can copy onto fabric. Another more recent model, the JN-2000, also works with a Game Boy Color. This game is the second Mario sewing game after I Am a Teacher: Super Mario Sweater on the Family Computer Disk System. It is also the last Mario game on the GBC.
The Mario Family cartridge has 32 patterns stored in it; note that, in the case of Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi, the same pattern is copied twice. Players can also alter the colors of the below patterns with a number of alternate palettes. The patterns are pixelated versions of classic-era hand-drawn Mario character/item artworks, created and published for games like Super Mario World.
