I sort of fell upon this idea by accident, after my last stitch, but apparently quite a few people like it, so I can’t complain 😛 After my Space Invader Pacman Ghostbuster cross stitch I realised just how similar in size the sprites were. Up to this point I’d put all of my own patterns on one file, and so I had a lot of sprites mixed together. I started splitting them out, and after realising that my future Fire n Ice cross stitch project wasn’t the same size of the others, I started trying random other games. In the end I picked by three favorite 8 bit games.
 
I was planning on doing another for different games originally, I planned for Galactican, Racer X and Asteroids, however after making the pattern, and coming up with loads of other options, I never got around to stitching it. However, I did make the retro 8bit cross stitch pattern avalible with over 50 different combinations.

Fallout Nuka Cola Diarama

Nuka Cola Diarama 1

I can honestly say that Fallout 3 has to be one of the best games I’ve ever played (you can probably tell by all the Fallout cross stitch I’ve done) and so on a bit of a weird decision I decided to create a Nuka Cola bottle. Over time this expanded to include a lit up Nuka Cola Quantum, with LEDs in the based to light it up.
I added in some Nuka Cola caps with painted logos, and a fantastic Nuka Cola poster in the background.

Hidden Book Safe Cross Stitch Kit

Tool Book Safe Hussif

When I first started cross stitch I hated how many tools I had lying around the place. To combat this problem I decided to make a hidden book safe come hussif (sewing kit). Instead of cutting the pages, which might cause problems due to the sharp needles and scissors, I layered foam sheets.

This worked really well, and until I started updating my sewing kit, worked very well. I had intended to create this as a bit of a proof of concept, with the next one being larger, however since then my kit has exploded in size and I never got around to creating it.
