Title: Original Ghost Buster
Date Completed: February 2010
Design: Lord Libidan
Video Game: Pacman
The original Ghostbuster, and the original Lord Libidan pattern. This was my first ever pattern. In fact, I had only stitched three projects in total before this. Being a Manbroiderer, or male embroiderer, I really wasn’t loving all the cute cross stitch patterns out there. To me, they were bland, and frankly not worth stitching. But I also loved cross stitching. So I had to decide, was I going to make the patterns, or give up stitching?
The fact that you’re reading this probably means you know the outcome, however, I designed and stitched up a pattern. It was based on a T-shirt I saw, although simplified considerably.
This is where the story of Lord Libidan started. I wanted to show off my creation and found the SpriteStitch website. In turn, I needed a user name and picked Lord Libidan. There, I found a whole community of people that were like me, and that wanted to cross stitch things that weren’t boring and cute. In fact, I ended up stitching a SpriteStitch banner cross stitch for the website too.
