A friend of mine approached me a couple of months ago with a challenge...to cross stitch a picture he found online of Raichu, a Pokemon character. Here is the final result!



I'm sure most of you heard that pop song "I'm Not Gonna Write You a Love Song" which came out a few years ago. So this is a play on that...get it? Get it? Yeah, I don't watch Pokemon either lol  Roll Eyes

Here's the pic I used to create the pattern:


The lettering I cross stitched free-hand after cross stitching the figure. My stitching ended up brighter than the picture but I kinda like it that way. All in all, the total project took about 11 hours to design and stitch.

My friend loves it!  Smiley Thanks for looking!

This is hilarious!  Cheesy I was a big pokemon fan when I was a kid. I may have to take a stab at one of these.

That's great!!  My son just 5 minutes ago fired up one of his very-old Pokemon games that he hadn't played in years -- Pokemon is eternally popular in this household Smiley.
