I wasn't sure if I should post these here or on the shoes forum, but my favorite part about my latest project is the cross stitched bits! I just started cross stitching last month, but I've already fallen in love with it. It was a craft I had always been interested in, but thought it was beyond my skill level. I'm so glad i decided to give it a try!
My best friend asked if i could make him a megaman themed pair of shoes and i thought cross stitch would be the perfect way to showcase the pixels of the old school game. I stitched onto cross stitch fabric, then cut out the figures after sealing the fabric with fray check. I painted the background on the shoes and stitched on my cross stitch appliques. This is one of my first real cross stitch projects, and I've taught myself so I'm sure I made a lot of mistakes with my technique. I've been learning mostly by trial and error so far. I'm really happy with how they came out, despite my lack of experience.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Very cool game-centric project.  Mega Man and his nemesis Elec Man both turned out great!

Those look great! What a great idea to use pixelated art for cross-stitch, I've seen it used for crochet projects too
