Design: Lord Libidan

I had this project on the back burner since my Nintendo N64 Micro Console Cross Stitch back in June of 2017. At that time I’ve been working on my largest ever project but also stitching some secret projects. By now I can say that I create cross stitch patterns for the Xstitch Mag, which has taken up some time, but also two books, and a third and fourth book proposal, which I can say a little more about in the coming weeks. However, with the newest Xstitch Mag project done, it was announced that the next issue was going to be a ‘mixtape’ issue. In short, this meant I could stitch anything I wanted, so long as it fits in the mag. I threw this idea back in the mix along with a Micro Cassette Keychain Cross Stitch.
My initial idea was to copy the size requirements of the micro Nintendo N64 console I stitched, but make a classic Gameboy. Whilst I did go onto make a Classic Gameboy Micro Console Cross Stitch as part of the project, I initially shelved the idea, instead of going for a Gameboy Color, as it looked a little more interesting.
Picking the launch color, lime green, I created a micro Gameboy color, with a slot at the back for games to go in and out. In addition I created a cartridge of Harvest Moon 2 (my favorite Gameboy game) and Pokemon Blue, Pokemon Red and Pokemon Yellow.
This project grew in size and before I submitted the idea to the Xstitch Mag, I had created the classic Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, Nintendo DS and the Nintendo Switch, all in microform.
