I have a friend who got married last month, and when I saw this project here on Craftster, I knew I had to do something like it for her. I could've embroidered something similar (my usual medium), but I felt the cross stitch lent itself better to the pixelated style of the video game image.



I used the "Bitter Luigi" pattern from Sprite Stitch and simply omitted the Luigi portion of the pattern (not quite appropriate, eh?).

The original pattern is quite small, so I enlarged it 400% by x'ing 4 squares for every 1 in the pattern. I wasn't sure how it would translate to such a larger size, but I'm pleased with the result.



To finish off the piece I used an arcade font tool to create my friend's wedding date in the Mario type. I really think this was the final perfect touch to the whole video game look and was well worth all the searching I did to find it.



Thanks for looking!

Thanks! I haven't heard from her since the wedding, so I'm not sure yet. I'll make sure to update when I do.
