Title: Expired Ramen Coupon
Date Completed: October 2018
Design: Lord Libidan
Video Game: Destiny 2
I started my Star Trek Voyager cross stitch after months of perfecting the pattern and was shocked that it was so quick to stitch. So less than halfway through I started coming up with another idea, most probably a quick stitch.
This all came after I had just finished Destiny 2, along with its expansions. Therefore, it didn’t take me long to jump to the idea of stitching a sweet Destiny piece. I had seen The Crafting Geek’s awesome Ramen icon and my initial plan was to simply stitch hers up, after all, it’s great!
But that’s when I realized, what if I could do something a little more tangible? The Expired Ramen Coupon is basically an inside joke within Destiny 2 after Cayde-6 is lost at the start of the most recent expansion, and he sends you off to find a free coupon, some decades out of date. And when you get it? Not much happens, you simply get the coupon. So I wondered, how hard would it be to make a coupon?
Hard. Super hard. In fact, this is the ONLY image of it:
Tiny. However, that didn’t stop me, and I put something together in a realistic size using a simple black backstitch in varying thicknesses.
