Dear Rat Boy Pattern Request

Hi all! Would someone be willing to help me turn this into a cross stitch pattern? Preferably on 14 ct aida cloth and shouldn't be too many colors, I don't think.

I just thought of the idea and want to give it as a gift with dear rat boy around him with maybe like a circular flower border and would love to make it happen. I really, really appreciate any help with this request! <3

I did a basic pattern for this one, its around 75 x 100 stitches (roughly 5.3" x 7.2" on 14ct). It could be shrunk a bit further if you don't mind back-stitch for all the black line-work. What size did you have in mind?

That looks so good, thank you so much! I don’t mind back stitching if you think it could be shrunk down to about 4”x6”? Otherwise, this is great, and I really appreciate it!

Scaled down to roughly 4.7" x 3.9" (depending how even your canvas is - 53 x 69 stitches). It looks a little scruffy around the edges, so you may want to do half stitches there, or make it consistently scruffy :p
If its still not quite what you are after you can always trace/draw/copy/transfer the original image onto your canvas and fill in the colours. That's basically what I have tried to do with the back-stitch outline.

Anyway I'm off for Christmas now, so if you need anything altered someone else may be able to take over it.

No worries! Did you get it done in time? That's a pretty tight timeframe
