Man oh man, have I been slacking on posting here. Probably because I've been so busy stitching Pokemon.
I don't remember what game Cubone was from. This was a custom piece from a charity auction; my winning bidder sent me the sprite. Figuring out Cubone brown was incredibly challenging, and I'm still not entirely sure I really got it. The caption is from Cubone's Pokedex entry in Pokemon Yellow. I thought all black letters would be too harsh, and then just sort of decided to put "deceased" in black.
Shiny Vaporeon (the purple one) is now finished, ironed, and in a hoop that probably needs to be finished. I did the regular Vaporeon using a sprite from Diamond/Pearl. Shiny is from Black/White. Which I don't even own, but, hey, more potential Pokemon patterns. I've had bad experiences with pattern making software, so I use graph paper and cheap colored pencils.
I have too much craft stuff (especially yarn), so I've been trying to use things like leftover Bright Ideas Aida. The only solution: Pokemon.
This Vaporeon (the greatest eeveelution, btw) is from Pokemon Gold. I stitched most of this on the way from Chapel Hill to Garden City/Myrtle Beach, SC. I added a single pixel to the mouth so Vaporeon would be happy.
And tonight's "using up Bright Ideas Lemon" project: Pikachus (Pikachux? Pikachae?)
I'm almost sorry to finally be rid of my leftover screaming yellow fabric. Well, I still need to think of some more blue Pokemon. Maybe I need to make a Marill to go with Pikachu.
