Portal Icons Request

Hi everyone! My 1-year anniversary is coming up and my boyfriend and I literally met through the game Portal. We were both singers in the UMD Gamer Symphony Orchestra, and he had played the game, and I hadn't. So when we were doing Still Alive, I thinking "WTF is this song about?" searched the game, wanted to to play. We talked about the game a bit, and I hinted "If you ever have time, maybe I could come over and play?" I wasn't coming on strong at all. :P

Long story short, I'd like to cross stitch him a little portal design. I would be my first completed cross stitch, so I want to do a bookmark because it's nice and small and I can probably finish it before the 19th even with my limited skills. I found a cute companion cube design that I'll be putting on one side, but I want some of the icons to be on the other.

Can someone make these into patterns for me? Since it's a bookmark, I'd like them to not be any bigger than 2x2 inches each.

Thank you SO much for your help!

Are you able to tell us the count of the fabric you are using? It would be helpful so that we can make each icon 2 inches square.

Thread count is blocks per inch, right? I measured it with a ruler and I can fit 13 cross stitches in an inch. So I guess that is 13-count? So I guess 2 inches would be 26 stitches wide/tall, but it is easier to go up to thirty stitches wide or anything like that, that's fine too. I should also point out that I won't be stitching those black borders, so the details inside could be made a bit bigger if that makes it work better.

Thanks so much for your help!

I hope these are ok for you, I had to do quite a bit of editing on them to make them look right once I had resized them. I haven't bothered to put a colour chart up this time, you just use black and white thread or any other colours you fancy using.
