I once tried cross-stitching in an art class in school once. I stabbed myself repeatedly in the finger making my DNA part of the project. But if you can avoid the bloody bits, it turns out that cross-stitching is a wonderful way to recreate pixel art.
Last year we featured a cross-stitched Pokédex made by Sprite Stitch forum member Lord Libidan. Recently he shared one of his newer creations at the forum, a lightsaber blueprint. This one looks relatively simple, but Lord Libidan is planning to take his idea to larger-scale projects.
With so many Doctors to choose from, it can be tough to decide which to invest your time in. Can’t decide which Doctor to watch? There’s a die for that. Each of the twelve incarnations of Doctor Who appears on this 5-inch tall dodecahedron.
Artist Alicia Watkins zooms in on microorganisms and viruses not with a microscope but with needle and thread. Her Etsy shop is filled with handmade cross-stitches of these tiny beings, from our buddies the red blood cell and the neuron to nasty folk like the anthrax bacterium and the ebola viruses.
Last year we saw a 24-foot long print that depicts the history of Doctor Who, which was inspired by the mysterious Bayeux Tapestry. The talented pop artist Aled Lewis was also inspired by the relic to make an illustrated history, this time of Star Wars.
In the future, when you and your grandkids are gathered over a hologram of a fireplace and they ask you where you think your home is, dust off your ancient tablet and show them Isaac Moore’s profound cross-stitch.
The title already spoils it, but you have to see this to believe it. Sprite Stitch forum member Cross Stitch Ninja backs up his or her moniker with this jaw-dropping cross stitch piece. If you think cross-stitch is only good for pixel art, think again.
Last year I called Linda’s impressive cross-stitch project the “textile Pokédex.” I was wrong. This cute bundle of thread made by Sprite Stitch member Lord Libidan is the actual textile Pokédex. Linda deserves to own a copy of this.
I’ve probably seen thousands of iPhone cases, but only a couple interested me enough that I ended up buying them. While I’m not a snob, I’m well aware that a case that doesn’t feature a nice design ethos won’t please me for long.
Linda aka Eponases wants to be the very best Pokémon stitcher, like no one ever was. So she took the original Pokémon and cross-stitched ’em all in one piece of cloth.
Linda based her project on a pattern uploaded by a user named Servotron on the Sprite Stitch forums.
We’ve featured a ton of cases just for the iPhone 4. Some of them provide extra protection, some of them add functionality or power, while some are just plain fancy. But I think it’s safe to say that many iPhone owners buy a case for its looks or design, or at least to personalize their gadget.
I’ve never cross-stitched in my life, but these cross-stitch patterns looks pretty amazing since they featured pixelated pop culture characters, ranging from The Justice League to Star Wars. WeeLittleStitches also includes the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghosbusters, and more.
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.
Psi169 joined the Sprite Stitch forums with a bang, showing off a 2-foot by 3-foot cross stitch of the various iterations of Mario through the years, as well as the power ups that have aided him in his adventures.
