Epic Pokémon Generation 2 Cross Stitch

Thursday, September 1st, 2016

Forum member Hellfire recently posted a picture of her sister’s completed cross stitch – one of our epic Pokémon patterns!

EPPG2 by Hellfire-Sister

It’s taken her a couple of years to complete this (in between stuff like school and life) but she has already moved on and is apparently starting our Gen 5 pattern! Hellfire’s family are a little bit epic-mad…Hellfire has Gen 3 in progress, Mum was working on Gen 1 and I’m sure her other sister was starting Gen 4!

Super Miniature 3D Ecruteak City Cross Stitch

Friday, June 10th, 2016

Our own Lord Libidan carefully crafted this wonderful Pokémon town and shared it on the forums!

Lord Libidan wrote, “Ecruteak City is actually different in the anime, manga, and games, and so this is a combination of a series of images and video to make the most generalised city.
”
The city features the nine-floor bell tower and the burnt tower, as well as city staples such as a Pokémon centre, PokéMart and houses. There’s a tiny zen garden, a cute cherry tree and he even included the blank house tile!

The whole city is stitched on 14ct plastic canvas and measures 3.5″ x 3.5″ x 4″.

Pokémon’s 20th Anniversary!

Monday, February 29th, 2016

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!)

Vulpix and Ninetales Stacking Plushies

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

This Mage needs a dose of cute today, and since my kitten insists on being asleep and not fun at all, I turn to the internet! I found these lovely plushies and because cute must be shared, here they are!

Super cute! They’re made by BubbleRhapsodyDesign on Etsy and are designed for stacking in little heaps of adorableness. I like the Vulpix, but I think my favourite is Ninetales. I’d like to see some other stackable ‘mon too!

It was stitched on 18ct aida using only 4 colours, and measures around 8″ x 8″. Great job, Jennuh!

Huge Snorlax Amigurumi!

When I come across things like this on my internet travels, it makes me want to pick up crochet again. When my friend gives my hooks back, maybe I’ll attempt this awesome Snorlax!

Shiny Things

Monday, September 21st, 2015

I must admit, I’m a bit of a magpie at times. I love shiny things! So, when I found an Etsy shop called Shiny Things by Miyuka, filled with geeky and nerdy shiny things, I had to share some of the items!

 

Some mini gaming pins (A SNES pad, an old GameBoy and a 3DS):

A mini TARDIS pendant:

They’re laser cut from reflective acrylic and assembled by hand. And all super shiny! There are many more items in the store, such as Zelda rupees, My Little Pony elements and super hero icons, so be sure to check it out!
