Its really no secret that I love Pokemon, and I love maps. I even devoted a whole post to the best cross stitch maps. And honestly, about half of them were Pokemon. However, I wrote that blog after my own Pokemon map cross stitch, and whilst that map was created by me using 15 different reference images, these in game maps of regions stitched up by strangenessisconserved weren’t some of them.

Weirdly, the maps in game don’t match up to what we know about the Pokemon world, especially the Kanto and Johto regions (top left and right on the image above). So I decided to combine the images to create an in-style in game Pokemon map of Kanto and Johto.
 
You can see below how my two Pokemon maps compare:

Interested in seeing another cross stitch map? I stitched a retro video game invasion plan cross stitch on pre-printed world aida. It might be worth a look.

The Best Simpsons Cross Stitch

With 21 seasons under its belt and still going strong, The Simpsons has a massive following (even if some of them hate the newer episodes), however there isn’t a great deal of cross stitch out there devoted to it.
As I pointed out in my trends of 2017 post pop culture like The Simpsons is on the rise. Here are the best so far…

I’ve been squirreling away doing a lot of secret projects at the moment, however following on from my feature in Mr X Stitch’s Guide to Cross Stitch Book I was contacted about a new type of cross stitch magazine, XStitch, which includes contemporary and unique cross stitch patterns. I knew I had to put an idea into the ring, and so I got to work.
 
I knew I wanted it to scream out my usual style, however wanted it to be roughly A4 sized, so it fit on the pages better. I threw some initial ideas down, all which seemed a little un-Libidan like. However, when looking through my back catalogue of stitches I came across some of my blueprint cross stitches, such as the ZF-1 blueprint cross stitch. An idea started forming in my head and I realised the shape of my lightsaber blueprint cross stitch was a perfect fit.
 
I guess its time to look at the elephant in the room now. I love space. I had just finished reading The Martian for my second time when I looked at this project and my mind instantally went to space, and a very specific bllueprint; the original Saturn V blueprints. There were actually a whole raft, all made publlic a few years ago, however their detail always amazed me.

The pattern developed and got picked for the first issue. So you can find this pattern in the first issue of the Xstitch Mag. Below are a few examples stitched by readers:

A few people have requested both color and black and white versions of the pattern. I’m working of this currently, however due to its size the program keeps crashing… :/


Lastly, the only person so far that is still stitching the pattern is samarin6 who last gave us the below update back in 2015, with just over 25% of the pattern complete; 3 years in.

I recently saw some awesome retro adverts for the SNES in a Japanese magazine and just fell in love with how they were sold. This idea floated around my head for some time, and I had a play with the idea when I made my 3D arcade cabinet cross stitch and it gave me the enthusiasum to create another 3D project, a super small console. The Nintendo64 jumped into my head, and I started planning based on a pixelated controller I had created some years ago. As it developed I also decided to include 2 controllers, and 2 games; Pokemon Stadium and the golden Legend of Zelda cartridges (using metallic threads, following the success of my gold Zelda cartridge cross stitch).
 
Once created I wanted to create a design close to the original advert that inspired me:

I like maps. In fact, in the past I’ve created a few map pieces, including the cross stitch map by SuckUK, and I’ve been intending to create a cross stitch map from the ground up for sometime, however I never settled on which game. I tried a fallout vault, a hitman map, even looking into final fantasy for a while, however I realised that there was one game I always went back to, that shared a map between all its games; Pokemon.
 
This is the national map, meaning it doesn’t contain Unova, Kalos, or any of the ranger games. However even then, there is a large amount of made up parts. The Pokemon games have never reveiled how the world looks. I used hints and comments from the games to create a unified design which looked good to me.

The Best Game Of Thrones Cross Stitch

Who holds the iron cross stitch throne? We’ll it will take less than 8 seasons to find out, beleive me. However when you see how awesome these Game of Thrones cross stitches are you’ll be itching for the new season in July!

What round up would be complete without a map of Westeros? This is a map that’s been recreated a lot on the internet, but I tracked down the first version.

However, that isn’t to say other versions are bad. This Mario Game of Thrones mash up is just brilliant!

The Best Star Wars Cross Stitch

May the 4th be with you on this festively Star Wars themed round up!

vader composite star wars cross stitch
To start us off, we have an awesome dark side composite image, making up Vader’s face out of Empire goodness. Frankly, this would be awesome if it was made in any medium, but to condense all that into cross stitch is truly brilliant.

Star Wars Dark Side Sampler Cross Stitch
Next up is something I created for a Star Wars Cross stitch book, which comes in both dark side and light side examples.

Sometimes however simplicity wins. This storm trooper, utilizing a hoop and white aida to create most of the piece is genius!

Star-Wars-tapestry-cross stitch
No list of Star Wars would be complete without mentioning this epic Star Wars tapestry, that is a chronology of the first 6 films in the series. At 30 foot long, and frankly some of the best films ever created, its definitely going to give the epic Pokemon cross stitch a run for its money.

BONUS ITEM! How about a Pokemon cross stitch tattoo?
