After working on this for two years, I am absolutely thrilled to say that this sampler is done! It was a Christmas gift for my four-year-old nephew who is learning to read, and who currently thinks he is Captain America. (Or Batman, or Ironman, depending on the day.)



Here are some close ups of the characters. Nightcrawler, Wonder Woman and Union Jack are some of my favorites. Cheesy








I signed it on the bottom with freehand stitching, which I was pretty proud of. I normally can't even write that neatly. Cheesy

If you are interested in the pattern, it is from weelittlestitches on Etsy! I changed my color background and letters from what they recommended, and I think it worked out pretty well. (I made the change because, at the time, my JoAnn's only had a few colors of fabric to choose from.)  https://www.etsy.com/listing/80948839/the-original-pixel-people-superhero?ref=shop_home_active_14

I told my husband that this was my Sistine Chapel. I will probably never work this big again! Ha.  Cheesy

Beautifully done and a wonderful concept/theme for your superhero fan nephew.  I think the longest I've ever worked on an art project is two weeks; I'd never last two months, let alone two years--that's some awesome dedication!

Beautiful!  I bought this pattern a few years ago and have only managed to do single letters (L for Luca, M for Micah, etc.)..I can't imagine doing the whole alphabet!!!  It is striking done all together...

Congrats--your hard work paid off!
