I have NEVER made a cross stitch project this detailed.  14 colors.  would have been more if my converting program hadn't lost at least one color.

I made this from a Mortal Kombat Sega Genesis sprite (I found it again last night after I posted this).  I made so many mistakes, but none that anybody would really notice...except me.  Tongue



I just found the frame today.  lol.  I was so, so happy to have found one this small!  it's only 3in x 4in!! Grin  I used 28 count Hardanger cloth (you're supposedly supposed to use it as 14 count, but I like a challenge).  had I used it as 14 or even used 11 count like I wanted to, it would have been HUGE!!!!!!!

EPIC!!!!

Did you use one floss strand or two for the stitches on such a tiny fabric?  Amazing work, I totally know how difficult it is to do 1 over 1 on something that tiny too! 

You totally rocked the conversion, the colors look perfect!  I have to share it to facebook so one of my friends who was MK obsessed can see!

thanks everyone!  Grin

there's another, much larger picture I want to do next, but I haven't decided what count to use yet.  I'm afraid of how large it will be if I use even 14 count.  I need to get some larger count cloth...

Cool!  She LOVED it.  Toastie!  Wink 

I figured it was one strand! 
Try finding some 32 count evenweave.  It works really well for tiny ones like this.  I'm nearly at the point where I want to try that again sometime.  I saw pictures of something insanely small in a magazine somewhere 64 count?  I haven't seen it in person yet.

I can't wait to see your next project!
