1  Skyrim Dragon Logo Cross Stitch by stitchFIGHT in Needlework: Completed Projects by stitchFIGHT on: July 03, 2012 08:31:40 AM

SKYRIM DRAGON CROSS STITCH

I made this using 7 shades of grey on 18-count black aida. It took me a few days to complete. I didn't feel like using a hoop because this was just a small project for fun, but it definitely shows.

It was a nice piece to stitch while taking a break from a bigger piece, which is being stitched using a frame (so a lot neater).


You can also tell I didn't spent a lot of time on it by looking at the back Smiley I still like it though, and I hope you do as well!

3  FREE THE INTERNET! Atari Teenage Riot Cross Stitch by stitchFIGHT in Needlework: Completed Projects by stitchFIGHT on: March 31, 2012 12:47:37 PM

KEEP THE INTERNET FREE FROM GOVERNMENT CONTROL
Based on a t-shirt from the band Atari Teenage Riot which I love but hardly wear because it's a men's size.
The hardest thing was getting the pattern just right, I wanted to keep the spacing between the letters of each line the same. Another difficulty was keeping the stitches as white as possible, which meant washing my hands all the time and using a frame instead of a hoop Wink

+-6500 white and some silver stitches on 18-count black aida.


A couple of detail shots.

4  I Phone, You Tube! Cross Stitch Hoop by stitchFIGHT in Needlework: Completed Projects by stitchFIGHT on: February 29, 2012 02:21:39 AM

I stitched this for Homerof2 as a replacement hoop in the Pinterest swap. The original design is from Brainless Tales, but I made the pattern myself.
I only had 2 weeks to finish it, so I didn't spent a lot of time on perfecting the pattern which is why I adjusted it as I went along. The backstitching was done freehand as well.

Kick-Ass Cross Stitch by stitchFIGHT











I started this cross stitch before the movie of Kick-Ass premiered. It is a screenshot from the trailer which I absolutely loved. It uses 36 DMC colors on 18-count white aida. The letters are glow in the dark (so it reminds me to kick some ass before I go to sleep Tongue).

It was a pain in the ass to finish, because the pattern changes colors ALL THE TIME with all the single stitches it has. I'm super glad I finished it and I hope you like it!

Kick-Ass FINISHED







Yeah, so here are some scans of the final piece. I still need to photograph it though, I don't like how the scan shows off the colors and stitches. 36 colors of floss on 18-count white aida. The letters are glow in the dark, so it reminds me to kick some ass in my dreams Cheesy

Kick-Ass WIP









I completely finished his face (no photo yet), but now I need to fill in all of the gaps on the left side with single stitches of a color. I want to finish it this week, but it's going to be extremely annoying to keep changing colors :S
