Oh my gosh I love the mushroom. If you did the controller that would be great. My hubby loves that sort of stuff.

This is so ironic. Just 2 days ago I started my brother's birthday gift and it is Nintendo themed embroidery. Then I find this thread. I love Craftster !! Here's so pics so far.



Other half of the Badies:

Mario in progress:(Don't know how well you can see it.)

And Megaman (for my husband!):

I embroidered them all then colored them in with colored pencils. I think they look kinda cool.

How would one go about making them "bigger?"  I mean, most of the sprites out there are fairly small, which end up being a great size I guess for towels and pillow-cases, but what if I wanted to give one as a gift, like a "large" Mario on a pillow?

They actually end up larger than you might think. Most NES sprites are about 16 x 16 or 16 x 32, so on 14 count fabric they're somewhere between 1 to 3 inches tall. That's certainly not "pillow" big, unless you're making pillows for hamsters, but they take up some space on fabric.

Making them 2x, 3x, 4x or so forth is easy. Just make each pixel 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, or however large you want. Like so:





I've been considering blowing up a sprite. I made one of the question mark blocks from Super Mario Bros. last night and it looks terrific.

But its the first xstitch I've done since I was a wee lass, so I'm having fun!

I'm going to make my younger brother a Nintendo / Mario themed sampler for his birthday. He's a huge Mario fan.

I either draw patterns myself (after all I'm learning to be a needlework designer so I need some practice) or use darklilac. It's difficult to find the right colours when you're designing patterns yourself, but darlilac finds the right colours in few seconds.

i also am wanting to do some sort of xstitch sampler deal for my nerdy brother.....though he is 30-something, he has a "game/computer" room with a real arcade game he is re-building, and lots of classic game systems and such..so i thought a cool framed xstitch of Zelda, Metroid (his favs) and the like would be neato for him to hang up? but im not sure how large of a project i wanna get myself into...

i also loove darklilac!!! so i will def be using it to make my pattern

any suggestions on how large of a sampler, if i should do a single picture ( like zelda by himself) or do a variety of lets say, Metroid things together??

I did this design recently - only took about a week or so:


Used glow in the dark thread to add some extra fun!  Wasn't the easiest thing to stitch with, but I got it done.

I did Mandyhello's pattern ages ago but just now was able to scan it in.  I only had variegated colors available at the time, that's why it looks like shit :-/

crosseyedcat, I LOVE your space invaders thing!

So I did this about six months ago

I love the video game inspired stuff I see on these boards and cant wait to see yours completed!!! I would probably be broke if darklilac charged for using that wonderful, wonderful chart program  Tongue

I have a nintendo controller chart around somewhere I will try to post for anyone who wants it.  I have wanted to do something with it but I have sizable Star Wars and Futurama projects going and dont know when I will make it back to another game one!
