1  The Adventures of Lolo - Lolo and Snakey (slightly pic heavy) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by jazzhands on: August 12, 2009 06:28:39 PM
From the Nintendo NES series, "The Adventures of Lolo", I am proud to present: Lolo and Snakey!

In case you're not familiar with the games, here are links to the sprites I used for reference: http://tsgk.captainn.net/sheets/nes/adventuresoflolo_enemy_sheet.png (Snakey is the top left character)
http://tsgk.captainn.net/sheets/nes/adventuresoflolo_lolo_sheet.png (Lolo)

Lolo was pretty simple to make, since he's basically just a ball with a tail, arms, and feet. Snakey was more of a challenge, being kind of U-shaped... But I'm really happy with how both of them turned out, especially Snakey.  Grin I plan to eventually do the other characters and some of the important objects in the game, too!

2  Bubble Bobble Clock in Needlework: Completed Projects by jazzhands on: July 11, 2009 01:58:33 AM
Hello everyone. Here is my latest completed stitchy project: a Bubble Bobble clock!

I started with a cheap plastic clock from Ikea, disassembled it, traced the paper face onto black aida fabric, made a few reference marks, and just began stitching. I chose the sprites as I went (they're all from the Nintendo/NES version of the game), and had to capture the "Hurry!" sprite directly from the game myself since I couldn't find it on the internet. I also stitched little 2x2 squares for the 12 hour markers, and painted the black hands white so they'd show up against the background.

Bubble Bobble is quite possibly my favorite game ever, so it was really hard for me to narrow it down to only 6 characters to put on the clock, but I didn't want it to look too cluttered. And I just had to include "Hurry!" because I'm always running late. Cheesy

Nice work! Good colors for a guy's afghan. I have an idea for adding some length... maybe you could make some smaller matching squares to attach to one (or both) ends, something like this:

Then you can keep the square theme AND make it as long as you need. Smiley

4  eat your veggies -- super mario bros. 2 in Needlework: Completed Projects by jazzhands on: January 06, 2009 05:41:32 PM
Here's my most recently finished piece. It was inspired by my recent transition to vegetarianism (and of course, my love of video games and crafting Wink). I designed it using sprites from Super Mario Bros. 2. The font is from the game, also.

If you are a fan of the game, you might notice I played with the colors a little bit, just to make it a little more interesting. I felt Wart especially needed a little embellishment, since the original game sprite was only green, white, and black:

Don't you just love the look of horror on his face?  Cheesy

5  Michael Jackson purse for sister in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by jazzhands on: December 26, 2008 12:34:22 PM
This is my first purse/bag (and my first real, completed sewing project) and I know it's not perfect, so please be kind. Smiley It was a gift for my sister, who is a life-long Michael Jackson fan.

I used the famous Jordy bag tutorial and the zippered-pocket tutorial https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=11808.0, and made a few small modifications. I made it to be roughly the same dimensions as my own purse, which is about 8"x12"x3".

First I completed the most important feature of the bag: I cross-stitched a sprite of Michael Jackson from the Sega Genesis game, Michael Jackson's Moonwalker, on a piece of fabric for the front of the bag using some waste canvas. I outlined him with some metallic floss to make him really stand out. Smiley He's about 4" tall.

I lined the bag with a fabric to match Michael's blue shirt, added the zippered pocket, and a magnetic clasp.

I also added a big, deep pocket across the back, lined with the same fabric as the inside.

It was way more work than I realized it would be, but she seemed to really like it. Smiley

6  my ambitious first cross-stitch: obscure video game monster in Needlework: Completed Projects by jazzhands on: November 15, 2008 07:39:18 PM
Silly me, I thought this would be a good beginner project (though compared to what I'd wanted to do first, it is!). Then I saw the stitch count after I printed the chart - almost 4200 stitches!  Shocked It took about 2 1/2 months to complete, but only because I sort of lost momentum after the first two weeks. I chose the red cloth so the brownish-green would really stand out. I used 12 colors and it measures about 6" by 5 1/2" on 14-count.

So here it is, a Lavos Spawn from Chrono Trigger!  I plan to stitch more characters from the game to go along with it.
