Title: 2 yrs worth of nintendo/musican/tv cartoon cross stitch
Post by: Jessii on April 13, 2008 04:24:54 AM
I love making nintendo related cross stitch cause i'm a nerd, and doing cross stitches of bands i like then getting them signed:


Motion City Soundtrack


Super Mario


Rockos Modern Life


Made this for my bf for valentines

Was asked by a friend to make this for their friend who has a very posh english accent



Made for a friends 4 yr old brothers birthday, when i gave it to him his reaction was "But Leonardo is my favourite turtle! I mean i like this one, but maybe you could make a Leo?"


Luigi bookmark made for my bf


Futurama

The Matches


Display of my work in the city of Perth library :)


The singer of Motion City Soundtrack asked me to make this one, after he saw the one i made of them:


After giving that to him last month, the bassist of the band has asked me to make one of this image, it's from one of the video clips, which i will start working on soon:

The one Justin asked me to do, is of a character named spike from a anime show called Cowboy Bebop, that i'd never heard of until he asked me to make the stitch haha.

Love the Bart and the Futurama one! It's such a great idea to have the bands sign them! I bet they get a kick out of it!

These are incredible!  Cross stitch takes sooo much patience :/ do you do your own patterns?!

My bf designs them all on his mac for me but if you go to www.stoik.com you can download a free trial of a pattern maker.

OMG, I KNEW IT!  When I saw that image I was thinking it was either a really uncanny likeness or the one dude from Cowboy Bebop.  I love that anime!

I only do tiny projects right now, and when I look at projects like these, the dedication that must go into them floors me. Dig the Mario and the Princess especially.  ;D

Post by: freakymysty on May 07, 2008 08:25:12 AM
I love them all!  Especially the little Futurama one, I love that show :D.

I had to laugh at the kids reaction to your TMNT present though.  Ah, kids!

you are incredibly talented. not to mention patient.  ;)

For 5 yrs i only worked 2 hours a day, and i'm currently unemployed, so i have plenty of time on my hands! If i worked full time i doubt i would get it all done!

Currently working on one of the band The Matches:


I never want to use the colours in the ocean again. The ocean took over a month to colour in!

FUTURAMA!! *flails*

That's so funny about the Michaelangelo/Leonardo issue. I'm a Raph girl myself. My sister's the Mikey fan.  :D

And your Super Mario cross stitches? For the win.

What a great idea with the band thing and getting them signed!  I absolutely LOVE the Living End.  I would think the mario stuff would translate well to cross stitch the way it's pixilated(sp?).  I like the MXPX one also!  Good job!

Oh my goodness.  That is wonderful work!  The time!  The effort!  My hands shake with arthritic terror.
