This is the last little project I’ve been working on.
It’s a gift for a friend that happens to like DMX, the author of the quote in the picture. Of course, I never thought I would ever stitch a brass knuckle, but there it is. I added the roses just because. They make the whole design funnier (roses are pretty gangsta right?)!!
The original roses were from a free pattern I found online that I modified to fit in. But, I cannot find the original anywhere!! I’ll add a picture of it once I find it.
Now, the charts! I added the second one without symbols and more contrasted colours just so it’s easier to see. The colour chart is only attached to the first picture.
It’s been a while since I uploaded a new chart! I been wanting to share the pattern for Bernard for a while but I haven’t had much time… again.
This character is from a game called Day of the Tentacle, by LucasArts. It’s the sequel of Maniac Mansion (game that I absolutely adore). I will upload a chart for Hoagie and Laverne in the next couple of days.
By the way Day of the Tentacle is being remastered!!! It’s coming to PC, PS4… in 2016. I’m so happy! After playing the remastered version Grimm Fandango I’m just hoping this one turns out just as good. Big YAY for Tim Schafer! I would love to see more LucasArts games get the remaster treatment… Maybe LOOM and Zak McKracken. Or the two Indiana Jones!
The chart is based on a picture (above) made by jhroberts on DeviantArt.
Hello! Just like in I mentioned in the previous post, I’ve been quite busy lately and I have no time to do much crocheting or cross stitching. Not a good thing.
This is the little tree I’ve been working on for a while now, it’s still a WIP so I’m hoping to finish it up soon (before new year’s hopefully…)
I came across the chart on Pinterest but the website link on it doesn’t work any longer. Casamiainitalia.com is down until the end of January according to the message on the site. This is a picture of the finished item, from Pinterest also.
It’s coming out way bigger than I expected (I feel like I should know enough about sizing by now…). The tree alone is around 5 1/2 inches long! I used 28 ct evenweave. Since there is no colour chart available with the pattern, I’ll share the three colours I used as well: DMC 3348 as green, DMC 945 as “peach” colour (I don’t know if they are flowers or fruits so I made them as peaches) and DMC 817 for the red details.
I still have a little bit to go but hopefully, it will turn out nice one finished!
I love Mario in his little costumes. In this pattern he only has the Tanooki (Raccoon) tail and ears. I believe the original full raccoon suit comes from Super Mario Bros. 3. It has always been one of my favourites next to the frog Mario.
I haven’t made a colour chart for this pattern but it’s really simple, DMC 310 for the black, any bright red, any light peachy colour and a little bit of brown. It only takes 4 colours!
Have you guys ever played Loom? I only payed it a couple times back in the day and never finished it because I thought it was boring… But I picked it up again a couple years ago and finished the whole thing without any walkthroughs. I was quite happy about it. The game happens to be more interesting than what I remembered and also, much less spookier.
Anyone that has ever played Monkey Island probably remembers a creepy little pirate from the Scumm Bar that had a badge with “Ask me about LOOM” on it. At the time I had no idea what LOOM was, I just thought it was some kind of joke and not a real game.
*In Monkey Island 3 there’s another “Ask me about…” but this time is referring to Grim Fandango. Even Many Calavera is in it! (There’s also a very recent remastered Grim Fandango game for PS4, PC and iOS. Totally worth getting, it’s an amazing game.)
Anyways, I always wanted a poster with “Ask me about…” on it. This kind of stuff can be tricky to find, so why not make it? The in game badge has white letters on a blue background, but it was harder to see on the chart so I just inverted the colours. This one would look good stitched on blue linen. I’ll see if I can find the right shade and I’ll get to it.
I just finished changing a couple of the colours for this pattern of the 3rd generation (Kanto) Pokemon Center. This is a simplified version of the actual in game building. I didn’t want to end up with a 200 colour chart…
I haven’t done a colour chart for this one because I don’t have the most accurate threads at home and I have no time to go to the store this week. But if anyone is planning on stitching it, I recommend bringing the picture to the store to compare colours. It’s mostly shares of red, blue and grey. Really simple.
I hope you guys like it and If you have any suggestions on what do you want to see next, just leave a comment here or on my Instagram!
I finally made a new pattern! It’s been a while since I’ve been quite busy but here it is. This is Sarge, a character from a series of games called Quake (a first person shooter). Since my favourite is Quake III Arena, that’s where all the characters will be coming from. I’m planning on making a few more charts with other characters.
The chart is based on a picture made by metalparts in Deviantart.
Don’t forget to check out all her other work, this is Italian for my girlfriend, one of my favourites, very nice illustration and a very cute idea. This is her tumblr Art Blog, her style is amazing, worth checking!!
Feel free to modify the colours on Sarge’s armour to any other colour you like. Here is the pattern:
Oh Peter Pan… This is one of my favourite books of all time. I love the Disney movie as well, I grew up watching it pretty much every day (only alternating it with Alice in Wonderland…). Even my mom still remembers all the lines and songs! I can’t imagine how bad it must be having to watch the same movie everyday for a very long time.
I really wanted to make a Peter Pan in cross stitch sometime, but I couldn’t decide which one! I’ll be making a couple more I think. There’s a few pictures of the whole group flying by the moon that would look really pretty.
I found the picture above in this Blog. It’s from a Peter Pan and Tinkerbell baby shower!! So cute.
And here is the pattern Peter Pan Pattern. It’s a Pdf because it came out pretty big and I couldn’t make it all into a single picture. It’s 175 stitches wide and 214 stitches high. The patterns shows a “Finished Size” by the end of the chart, but I don’t think that’s accurate at all. Just go with the stitch count. And it also counts the empty stitches for some reason… I couldn’t get rid of that part in the pattern, so just ignore it. I only used DMC 310 for it.
