The Dr {Mario} is in!

May 6th, 2016 - by blackmageheart

This blogger has been pretty unwell recently (hence the lack of posts – many apologies, Sprite Stitch readers!) with various ailments. Because of that, I went on a little discovery tour of the internet, looking for Dr. Mario stuff! I’m not sure I would entrust my health to this particular doctor, but I did find a few nice items to share!

Pokémon’s 20th Anniversary!

February 29th, 2016 - by blackmageheart

I think 2016 is the year for gaming anniversaries! We’ve already had Street Fighter II and The Legend of Zelda, and now it’s Pokémon!
I’ve picked out a few ‘mon-based stitches that I like (and believe me, it was difficult to even choose one – there are so many out there!)

arkani from the forums stayed up until about 5am to complete this Surfing Pikachu stitch in time for Pokémon Day (which was 27th Feb.)

Lord Libidan‘s classic tattoo-style crest, which is still awesome!

“Pika Pile” by StitchPlease (pattern by HardcoreEskimoKisses)

Kanto Country Life by KysenCrafts

Don’t forget, there are plenty of Pokémon patterns on our forums – including the Epics!

Stardew Valley Cross Stitch

February 25th, 2016 - by blackmageheart

Stardew Valley is a super cute new Harvest Moon-style game. sirinth posted these excellent stitches of sprites from the game over on our forums!




There are key/phone fobs of various animals and items; a portrait of Abigail, one of the characters; and a biscornu with veggies and a chicken. Very cute!

Stardew Valley will be available on Steam from Feb 26th, and do check out sirinth’s cross stitch streams on Twitch !

Legend of Zelda Title Screen Blanket

February 15th, 2016 - by blackmageheart

rufusdampfer from our forums crocheted this excellent Legend of Zelda title screen blanket!

rufus said, “I’ve worked on this crochet project steadily for around 2 hours a day for the past 4 months. Netflix sometimes demands some distraction so you don’t feel like you’re completely wasting your time! It has been really fun to see it forming row by row like it’s been loading for months! I did this using 1 sc per 1 pixel making it 240 rows of 256. If anyone wants to know more details about how to do this I would be happy to help. I found it quite rewarding.”

I think it’s very cool, and would love one of my own!

Awesome Polymer Clay Statues

February 10th, 2016 - by blackmageheart

Dottie Torres, aka Gimmeswords, makes wonderful polymer clay stuff including miniatures and jewellery. But it’s her statues that are really awesome – I’ll let you see why!




Above are Bowser Jr with his Clown Car, Deku Link doing his flowercopter thing and FFIX’s Vivi. They are all hand sculpted and painted. These one-of-a-kind statues are all for sale in Dottie’s Etsy shop, but she has photos of more of her work on her website, – including this awesome Light World Map from A Link to the Past!

Street Fighter II Stitches

February 8th, 2016 - by blackmageheart

This week is the 25th anniversary of the release of the legendary Street Fighter II. (The actual date is subject to much debate!) Much has changed in 25 years, including SF itself, but many people still have good memories of that old game – including crafters! One of those is natepopinski from the forums, who produced a couple of great SF pieces.

Here we have a minimalist version of the fighters, which natepopinski discovered on Pinterest and just had to stitch; and a MegaMan style character select bookmark. Both projects are pretty cool!
