I'm really proud of my little cross-stitched Fry fridge magnet. :-)
I was inspired by the SuperMario/Nintendo stuff posted here a while ago.

I figured out a chart by working from a picture on a Futurama DVD box set. To make it into a magnet, I padded it with some scraps of material, put a piece of card behind the scraps, stuck some flat magnet strips to the card, then I sewed a backing on.

I want to do bender next!

One awesome album artwork, if I say so myself.

That is so cool.  How did you put the magnet on the back?

That is so cool. I love Futurama! I have all the  DVD sets. I think I may try this but with other characters from the show.  Smiley

That is cool, I have made a few of my own charts myself.
My favorite one was the West Virgina Logo I charted out. Just and
idea for you though. You might want to try doing a cross stiched bookmark.
Just stich your design on the Aida cloth and than cut it out in a strip. Than, just
fold the raw edges to the back and keep them in place with back stiching.
A bookmark with Fry and maybe 2 other charters from the show would be like way totaly awsome.
