I Googled "Tokyo Tower Silhouette" and got a couple of potentially-useful images:

As for koinobori, I found one very cool ink drawing:

And here's a collection of cute images featuring koinobori:

Hope that helps!

Does anyone know of a cross- or back-stitch font that resembles this image? Preferably about 5 stitches tall, bigger is fine but I can't go smaller. Thanks!

Maybe you could just type it in verdana, ca 5px high, and see what it looks like? Then push it through some conversion engine or just zoom in and count the pixels?

Hi! Supposedly there are tons of HP cross stitch patterns on the internet, but I've only been able to find a few on "Leaky Cauldron." Does anyone know anyone who has made patterns using words from spells and will share/sell the PDF patterns? Thanks!

I saw this piece over at xstitchhappy and I immediately knew I had to embroider it to make a bank login set cozy for my mom. (in sweden, almost all banking is done online, including all invoice payments etc, so that gets used at least once per month)

However, it felt wrong that the koi was swimming away! I know that a koi swimming upstream is good luck, but that is clearly a pond, not a stream. And when the surroundings doesn't show you something it's working with, things should always be coming towards you imho, not escaping you. So I turned the design.

The colors are very wrong here, primarily the background which is a pale baby blue / turquoise glittery piece. I don't know why the camera won't accept it (daylight is very cold here in winter). The lily pads are sort of right, while the koi is perfect - except that the white stitches are actually white!

The lily pads are still "facing" the same way as in the original design, but I drew the shadows on the other side (didn't turn out perfectly, but I still like it), duplicated one of the pads, and moved the eyes on the koi, using beads instead of stitches, because that did seem perfect Cheesy

I haven't made the cozy yet, but I wanted to share the embroidery, to pat myself on the head for finishing it! Cheesy

This was posted in January of this year - hope it helps you out.

It may have taken me ages, but I've finally got a new free embroidery pattern up on the blog! It's a Halloween/Masquerade Octopus. Let me know what you think!
