I just finished a Nyan Cat cross stitch as well! It was so fun! The pattern I used is from Birdie Stitching (found at http://www.wingtips.org.uk/ along with tons of pokemon patterns!)

What is really awesome is that I used glow in the dark thread for the little stars ^___^
The only thing I'm sad about is I attempted to use thread I had instead of going out to buy new thread just for the pattern and the only problem with that is that the grey is a bit darker than it should have.
Also, if I make another, I will start with dark blue fabric instead of white so that it really looks like he's running through space!

The only change I made to this last picture is I added more glowing stars LOL couldn't stop myself!

XenLoLo, it is awesome and so cute! I love that you used glow in the dark floss for the stars. I wish I had known about it before doing mine. If I make another one (but smaller!) I want to do it on dark blue cloth, too. And thanks for posting that pattern site! I already know I'm going to be doing some projects from it. I also used what colors I had already. The colors I had were fairly close, though.

Well, a little over a year later, it's finished!  Grin

I still have to figure out how to frame it, as I didn't leave a lot of excess cloth around the Nyan Cat. Oops. Roll Eyes It will fit in an 8"x10" frame, so I just have to get creative with matting.

I do have a pattern made up for this larger Nyan Cat and border, but have to figure out how to have it to where people can download it. Because it might be too big to just have the image posted where they can right click it to save it.

My next Nyan Cat project will be this (Just the Nyan Cat, rainbow, and the purple pixels above the cat*):

This one is a bit unusual. The Nyan Cat site is currently down, but on this page (the 404 page), the background music is Lavender Town music from Pokemon. Smiley I will definitely use glow in the dark thread instead of white on this one.

* I found out that the purple pixels are the Missing No glitch from Pokemon Red and Blue. I didn't play much Pokemon, so didn't make the connection between the pixels and Lavender Town music.

Thanks, sinellia! Nyan Cat is definitely squee worthy.  Smiley

I have a pattern posted on my blog: http://modgeekbykg.blogspot.com/2012/09/nyan-cat-cross-stitch-pattern.html Just right click and select "view image" to view it larger. You could also just click the image, but I think one can view it larger by right clicking it.
