Top 10 Video Game Cross Stitch

Video game cross stitch is my thing (along with geeky cross stitch), however there are a lot of examples of fantastic art out there, so here are my top 10:

1 – Mario Power Ups

One of the first ever ‘epic’ video game cross stitch patterns made by psi169 but stitched by many of the years. Its a massive 1.5m by 1m and full of awesome mario goodness.

2 – Legend of Zelda Map

The epic stitches don’t end there, and as time has gone on Zelda caught up fast with Mario on the trend front. This amazing piece was the first full Legend of Zelda cross stitch map to be completed.

3 – Mario Level

Just look how long this is! Unrestrained from common frame sizes a whole level is stitched in this mario piece. Click to see just how detailed it is. And nice use of a sky blue aida…

4 – Home Sweet Home

There are literally hundreds of home sweet home patterns, including the free pokemon home sweet home pattern we gave away, however they have become so synonymous with the cross stitch community, that its inclusion within the video game sub-culture was inevitable.

5 – Pokemon Battle Screenshot

Simple in its outset of a pokemon battle screen, however infinitely more complicated once you realise the small factors such as the high level pikachu is meant to represent Ash’s from the anime. Not only has it been well received by the whole stitching community, but its even sparked spin offs like the Game of Thrones one below.

6 – Retro Trio Sampler

This piece was made my myself, so I do have a bias, however its the most requested pattern on reddit cross stitch page, so is deserving of a place in the top ten. And even better I’ve made the retro gaming cross stitch pattern a free download!

7 – Chrono Trigger

This is simply stunning. The tone of the colors shows real skill, but its completely engrossing, using one of the most iconic images from the chrono trigger game.

8 – Day Of The Tentacle

The greatest thing about this competition is the fantastic stance of the tenticle. I know its direct from the game, but they’ve taken a vector image and transfered it to a small pixel image without loosing any of the key details.

9 – Lara Croft

A regular, quite boring cross stitch completely changed by adding in Lara Croft (a very cross stitch unfriendly character) into the mix. It’s not Becky Schaefer’s only piece, but this was his first in this style, and it really works…

10 – Hakuen Street Fighter

HADUKEN! Synonomus within the video game community, and has been attempted many times with its well known code, however the thing that really brings this piece to life is the awesome positioning of the characters and lack of text, but its still obvious what it is. Very well done.
