    OMG! I just started doing cross-stitch again after about 10 years of a break from it, and I CANNOT wait to do this one! I absolutely LOVE Mario. I’m rushing to the store for supplies right now!
    You’ve inspired me to do one for Yoshi, my favorite Nintendo character :) And my husband would love Link, but he’d never admit he liked cross-stitch, but I am going to have to do these for myself.
    I’ll post on my blog when I complete it and let you know!

    […] Now on to something that makes me happy. As you may or may not know, I’m a child of the 1980s. With that comes 80’s video games, such as Super Mario Brothers, my favorite game of all time. I just love the little guy. Anyhow, a few weeks ago I came across Sprite Stitch, a website devoted to cross-stitching old video game characters. Below is one of the patterns available for download: […]

  34. ylimele Says:

    does anyone know how much it would cost to buy all the material to complete this project???

  35. johloh Says:

    assuming you have no supplies…approx.
    14 colors = $7
    needles = $4
    cloth = $5

    so easy less than $20.

  36. ylimele Says:

    thanks, another question is if i want to add the mario in the green shoe, what would be the width and height of the cloth i should buy?

  37. ylimele Says:

    one more question incase you haven’t answered the other one, how many thread of floss do you use to stitch each stitch for this project?

  38. johloh Says:

    two strands is the typical usage for cross stitch.

  39. Gamer Grrlz Says:

    Hey johloh, I don’t know if you knew this, but I did this pattern in Perler beads and added a Super Mario World sprite to the end! :)

  48. stacey Says:

    what is the size of adia id need in inchs please?????

  49. johloh Says:

    your aida can be whatever you want. 16 or 14 is the most common…14 is 14 stitches per inch, 16 is 16 per inch. so if you choose 14 itll be bigger.

  50. stacey Says:

    sorry what i mran is that youve put, 216 W x 64 H thats very very big if inchs and even in cm

  51. johloh Says:

    its not inches or cm. its stitches.

    you need to divide the stitches by the type of aida to get the overall size. one stitch isnt one inch.

    in aida 14, 14 stitches = 1inch.

  52. stacey Says:

    oh right ok i get it now duh sorry i was gonna say thats very big if its even cm lol

  53. stacey Says:

    next pay day which thank fully is tuesday im gonna go out any by the stuff to do this cant wait 😀 😀 😀

  54. stacey Says:

    i started this project today only cost me approx £16 which is good i think 😀 £4.99 for the adia and the rest in dcm 85p per colour 😀 just wondering how long its gonna take me to complete the white i think will take the time

  55. Kelsey Says:

    I’m starting on this right now! So excited!

  62. AbbyLobo Says:

    Question…. On the symbol chart… What does dk, md, ul vy dk, and lt mean????

  63. johloh Says:

    Those are names of colors. Dk is dark ly is light, vy dk us very dark. You’ll see it on the floss.

  64. AbbyLobo Says:

    Also… I am new to cross stitching… I purchased a 14 cloth and it seems from the finished ones on here that I bought the wrong cloth. Mine has much bigger holes in it than what I am seeing on here. Can I still make it work with what I have? HELP?!?!

  65. johloh Says:

    I use aida 14. The smaller the number the bigger the project. The bigger the number the smaler the project. Any number will work.

    The number is holes per inch.

  66. Ace of technology Says:

    This pattern is epic! I love it. But I can’t cross-stitch…
