It's been a busy month for me, but now that's it's after Christmas I can show you all of my hard work! This is a special order for the lucky Michael. It has 14 different sprites of Setzer from Final fantasy 3/6 around his name and is stitched in a 5 by 7 inch area. He then framed it in the 8 by 10 inch frame. This took me about a month, and it's the first project I've finished with no mistakes!
Also for my east coast fans I'll be at Magfest again! I even have a super nifty flyer this year. If you see me there, it'll even have a coupon attached!
See you next year!
A few new updates for the month, mostly holiday orders, and boy am I swamped!
Here's the super awesome swap gift I received from $n0wflake! The sprites around the edges are from Okami and she used my Facebook logo for the main piece. I'm hoping to have it framed at my table for Magfest this year, it's the coolest banner I've ever seen!
This is part of a commission I'm working on. The two sprites are Beam Kirby from Super Star Ultra and Megaman from Battle Network.
This is another commission, this time it's Cinccino from Pokemon!
Wow, it's a little dusty in here. Sorry about that, I've been using Facebook so much for updates, but don't worry I haven't forgotten about this! I'll be using more for monthly updates, that way it'll be more regular. I've been stitching mostly commissions, but I'll post everything!
This is two sets of mages from Final Fantasy. The first set are keychains, the second are magnets.
Here's a Nyan Cat bookmark that was super fun to make. It's on sale in my Etsy store!
Here's the latest, my Sprite Stitch Swap gift. I sent it across the border to Canada, and my swap partner really liked it!
I've finished White Mage and Fighter, but I don't have the brown or yellow to make the other three. As soon as I can figure out why KG Chart is messing up colors so badly, I'll figure out the thread for those.
In the meantime I've started on another Mario set. This time it's his enemies, so far I have Bullet Bill and a spiny done.
Another set done! This time it's Link from the original Legend of Zelda. Also I've started working on the character from the first Final Fantasy. So far I have Red Mage done.
I'm trying something a little different with the bigger sprites. Instead of doing them on plastic canvas, they're done on regular fabric. That way everything stays around two inches. They seem to be working out okay, so I've started on Fighter and should have White Mage done next.
Two more sets done! I'm really happy with the way the Tetris pieces came out, the colors look even better in person. I was super lucky to find a good sprite for Sonic, 16-bit graphics don't translate well to stitches this small. I'll keep stitching the small stuff, hope it turns out as good as these!
Thanks for everyone who liked my Facebook page! This is my first try at making a bookmark, so I kind of winged it a little. It's about 2 by 6 inches, with frayed edges. I couldn't figure out what to do with the back so I just put some foam-core on it. The next time I try this I'll definitively be more ambitious! My next project is for a swap I'm participating in so I have to keep it a secret until the person gets it. It's a small project so I should be done shortly and be on to a new project soon!
So the small easy project I started has been a nightmare so far! I've had almost no time to work on it, and I've had to rip out almost all of what I've done. So to make it up, I made a fun Paper Mario pattern. I love the Paper series and the win pose from the original is my favorite Mario pose. Hope you like it!
