When I started to (re)learn how to cross-stitch, I decided it was probably best to start small and simple. And what's better than 8bit mario graphics?

Mario P-Wing created on plastic canvas and secured to a bobby pin.



I can easily see myself getting addicted to making these.

Haha thanks Mom.... And I already found at least one swap I want to do!

Thanks!! I had to go dig through my supply to remember exactly. I did this on 14 count apparently, I don't remember seeing any plastic canvas smaller than that.


Thank you everyone that has commented! You guys rock!! Smiley

haha thank you!!! When I was trying to think of something productive I could make with the mario icons and the first thing that popped in my head was "OMG I COULD MAKE A P-WING HAIR CLIP!!!" and I just had to make it Cheesy

omg i love this! how did you secure it to the hair clip?! Smiley

Thread :| It's not the most secure thing ever. Next time I make one of these, I'll probably use hot glue or something to help hold it in place. Basically I just wrapped around the hair pin several times in my thread and "stitched it" into the back of the p-wing (under the stitching in the back). I know that's a terrible description. Basically, I'd wrap the thread around the pin, then do a stitch behind the needlework from the p-wing (between the needlework and the plastic canvas), and kept repeating that until I felt like it was secure enough. Hopefully that helps, if not let me know and I'll see about potentially taking pics the next time I do one of these Cheesy

i understand what you're saying Tongue i find attaching things to hair clips rather annoying. because they're so tiny, hot glue sometimes just comes off, thread gets loose, etc. SO ANNOYING! Tongue

I wonder if something like this might make it a little easier.  just glue it to the pad.  Smiley
