Super Mega Punch-Out!! Cross-Stitch: 80,000 Stitches of Retro Awesomeness
November 20th, 2010
It took crafter Sewsew-a-Gogo almost two years to create this Punch-Out!! art, and it looks like it was well worth the wait.
When you first look at this thing from a distance, it doesn’t look like much, but when you realize that it took her over 80,000 cross-stitches to bring this 12″ x 28″ piece to fruition.
A dozen of the original fighters from the classic NES boxer are beautifully detailed with thousands of tiny stitches in place of pixels. It really is a gamer-geek craft masterpiece.
All my faves are there, including Soda Popinski, Mr. Sandman, King Hippo, and of course, Mike Tyson himself.
