I just wanted to share a chart I just made for the Jurassic park logo. It’s based on the 1993 Nes game (Ocean), because that’s the year my favourite Jurassic Park movie came out!
This is a big chart so I had to turn it into a PDF. PATTERN HERE: JurassicParkLogo.
I made it based on the picture with a red background but the colours can be easily modified. Another option is the yellow logo, just like the one in the picture above.
The PDFincludes the DMC colours you need, but feel free to chose any other shades of red/yellow.
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:
Hello again! It’s been quite a few days since I posted anything. I don’t have a set up date to update this blog with new posts… It takes me some time to come up with patterns and actually make them haha
When I made this Pokemon pouch I didn’t write down the pattern as I usually just crochet as I go, but it’s very easy. Many people have asked about it so I’ll give it a go. It’s worked in the round (only one piece, no sewing), single crochet with a couple colour changes and the little button on the side.
Yarn: Any 100% cotton yarn will work. It’s very durable and it doesn’t get fuzzy so easily. I bought it here a while back, I’m not sure if they still have it in stock but that store has really good deals.
Hook size: 5.00mm – H
- Row 1: With the white yarn start by chaining (24). * I have a 3DS XL. For other sizes adjust the starting chain accordingly. I make it just as long as the DS. For other types of yarn, the chain might have to be a couple stitches shorter than the device. Cotton is not at stretchy as other yarns and you will want the pouch to fit snugly.
- Row 2: 1SC in second chain from hook BACK LOOP ONLY. SC to the end of the chain.
- Row 3: Do not turn it, we are working in the round. Just keep going. [2SC in what is now the back of the chain, 1SC in each stitch to the end adding one more SC to the last stitch].
- Row 4: [Repeat rows 2 and 3.]
- Row 5 – 8: [ SC around].
- Row 9 – 11: Start Row 9 by changing colour to black and [SC around].
- Row 12 – 19: Start Row 12 by changing colour to red and [SC around].
- Row 20: By now, you’ll be able to fit the Nintendo inside the pouch to see where you want the top flap. To make it, do not work in the round, turn at the end of each row. I like to make the flap as wide as the DS. [SC until you reach the other end of the Nintendo, CH 1 turn and SC to the end]. Keep going until you are one row away from your top flap reaching the end of the red part on the front of the pouch. On the last row, find the middle part and add a stitch marker. Sew the button in the center of the black part of the pouch, using the stitch marker as a reference. I used a white piece of yarn to sew the button.
- Last row: SC until almost the middle part of the row, measuring your button, chain as many stitches as you need. My chain is 11 stitches long and I skipped 6 Sc from the previous round. SC to the end and fasten off.
Button: [Make a Magic ring, 6 SC into MR, DC around. Change colour to black and SC around twice.] Here you can really make the button any size you want. I didn’t want it too small, but it’s your choice.
My pouch is 8 rows white, 3 rows black, 8 rows red. Make sure to measure the pouch with your Nintendo as you go to make sure that everything fits good. Please, use the pictures as reference. I don’t usually write down my patterns and it can be confusing, if anyone has any questions or there’s any errors, please, let me know. This is a very versatile pattern, you can make many different pouches with it. Adding zippers, lining them, using different yarns… Anything goes. I added a couple pictures of my pouches, I hope you like them!
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.
This little guy here is called Tuxedo Sam. I made him a while back but the poor thing has been sitting in the closet ever since. Now that Björn (my doggie) is old enough, I’m not afraid he’ll try to chew him up anymore. So Tuxedo Sam is free to come out! I’m still trying to find a spot for him, maybe one of the shelves is the best option.
You will find the pattern here.
She makes the cutest dolls, and If you guys like Sanrio characters, you should check out her pattern book! (I bought mine at Chapters) Hello Kitty, Keroppi, Purin, Chococat, My Melody… they’re all in there!
And now, I’ll just go lay down for a bit, as I just had two wisdom teeth pulled out yesterday, and I’m still feeling quite sore from it (while looking like a chipmunk…).
I can’t wait to finish this sampler! The details on it are adorable, and the colours are lovely as well. It’s the first time I use evenweave linen ( in Antique White by MCG Textiles) and I love it. It’s way harder to see the little squares but I think it looks better.
But I’m currently looking for another pattern to make just so I can take a break from this one. I love floral motifs so I that is probably what I’ll end up doing next.
This picture had to be made into cross stitch! I’ve seen a couple them already made into embroidery and cross stitch (hilarious), but I had to give it a try as well.
I still haven’t made the field and it make take a while until I do, as I just bought a couple of The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery patterns and I’ll be entertained with that for a while… Anyway, I thought I could share the chart based on this font.
The only difference is the letter ‘I’. I didn’t really like the one included in the chart so I ended up switching it. I still kept the original one in red by the end of the chart, just in case someone wants to use it. (The pattern is divided in two pictures).
Ps: Adding dots in between words would make it look so much better! (Just like in the picture) But I haven’t got to that yet…
I just finished my first cross stitch flower! When I came across the pattern on Pinterest I knew that sooner or later I would end up stitching it. Now I just have to find a tiny (white) frame for it and I’ll be done.
I found the pattern here.
I didn’t use the exact same colours from the pattern because I wanted to make it today and I couldn’t go to the store, but I knew I had some pinks at home so I improvised it a little bit. Colours I used:
- Light Pink (Lichtroze) Original: DMC 151 – Used: DMC 603
- Roze (Pink) Original: DMC 603 – Used: DMC 602
- Fuchsia Original: DMC 601 – Used: DMC 601
- Rood (Red) Original: DMC 321 – Used: DMC 304
- Lichtbeige Original: DMC 644 – Used: DMC 772
- Beige Original: DMC 303 – Used: DMC 471
- Off White Original: DMC 3865 – Used: DMC 712
*I’m a bit unsure about which colours they intended to use for this flower as the “Beige” looks strangely close to green in the picture (?), but the green don’t seem to match, anyway that’s all I could do.
The rose turned out brighter than what I intended, but I love it. I might have to try this same pattern but with different colour combinations, reds, yellows, oranges… you name it!
This will be my next project once I finish all my WIP.
It’s based on The Oregon Trail, an 80’s game. It’s quite frustrating and addictive at the same time. I remember playing it many years ago and actually dying from dysentery a few times. I did finish it too, not with all the crew but they ended up in Oregon anyway (someone drawn in the way and a couple of them had broken arms…).
I’m still not sure about which colour I’m going to use, I’m in between DMC white, 906 and 907 (I might go with 907 just because it’s almost neon, just like the game colour). It will be worked in black 14ct Aida cloth. I went to Michael’s today just to pick the green colour (I bought both 906 and 907 and then some extras…), and I happened to come across the the black Aida cloth! It’s the first time I’ve seen it in stock so I had to grab it too.
*Other options are adding orange/brown to the ox and wagon details.
- Play The Oregon Trail Deluxe (1992) here.
- Play The Oregon Trail (1990) here.
I made the chart based on the most accurate (to the original game) picture of the wagon I could find.
And I’m done! This one is going to be a gift for a friend who likes Minecraft (pretty obvious…). I just finished framing it and I’m quite happy with how it turned out. Now, I did mess up a little bit my “O’s”. I made the pattern wanting to make them 6 stitches wide but for some reason I missed the last column and they are only 5 stitches wide, by the time I realized I was making the O in diamonds and I didn’t want to take everything apart.
The diamonds are not in the chart because the pattern for them is not mine. It’s a free pattern available in this Deviant Art page (made by mogunoe).
There’s a free Minecraft font available here just in case you guys want to get the lettering more accurate than the one I made.
PS: This is a bit of an explanation for the quote, as some people (non Minecraft players) have asked about it. In Minacraft, you can craft tools (axe, hoe, pickaxe, shovel), and modify them with other materials that affect their durability (gold, iron, stone…), diamond being the strongest. Now, while it’s good to have a diamond pickaxe, the diamond hoe it’s a pretty useless one, making it a waste of diamonds.
