After doing my optimus prime transformer cross stitch and jetfire transformer cross stitch, people started to notice me. I was in a few magazines and people were visiting my site. This came with a few requests for other patterns, and the majority of them were for a new transformer; Soundwave.
 
I created a rough pattern, but came across an issue; the tapes. Soundwave has a series of transformers that fit into the cassette deck on his chest, however due to the scale I’d used in the previous transformers the size of the tapes was tiny! Thankfully I was able to work them out and created two awesome transforming cross stitch tapes; ratbat and laserbeak.
 
Once I worked that out, I felt a little more relaxed so tried to make it have a few special accessories; two batteries that fit into his back that convert to a cannon on his shoulder and a gun on his arm.
 
I am also planning on making a starscream, and might try my hand at megaton, although he is going to be EXTREMELY hard to do…

Pokemon Home Sweet Home Cross Stitch by Lord Libidan

Title: Pokemon Home Sweet Home
Date Completed: January 2012
Design: FingerPricks
Count: 16
Canvas: White
Colours: 4
Video Game: Pokemon

I just fell in love with this pattern as soon as I saw it. Its simplicity, and how it looks back at the traditional sampler (Which before this I hadn’t yet done) yet plays on the pallet town pokemon reference. I knew I had to stitch it, and I also knew it wouldn’t take long. I was slightly delayed however when I started stitching my christmas pokemon half way through it.
You should all check out FingerPrick’s website and etsy. Although most of her stuff isn’t video game related, its still got a load of good contemporary cross stitch.
You can download the home sweet home pokemon pattern for free from a previous post too! Aren’t I nice?

With a transforming Optimus Prime cross stitch under my belt, and a Jetfire cross stitch too, my next big challenge was Soundwave. Unlike the other two however Soundwave created his own list of problems; but there was one big one. The tapes.
 
To anyone unaware, Soundwave has a series of smaller transformers that fit into the cassette deck on his body. Making tapes shouldn’t be too hard, however in order to keep Soundwave in scale to the others, it gave me very small tapes indeed. Before I could attempt the robot, I had to tackle the tapes first. So I picked Ratbat and Laserbeak.
I also intend to make the rest of his tapes; Buzzsaw, Rumble & Frenzy.

It turned out these worked perfectly! I was then able to create the 3D transforming cross stitch Soundwave, and these tapes fit perfectly.

When I first saw this tshirt pattern I fell in love with it, so just had to stitch it. I had to do a lot of work with the image to get it into a nice pattern, and then had to edit the image some more in order to get it looking right, but I kept the feel of the original by only putting 6 colours in it.

Video Game: Assassin’s Creed

This was the main part of my swap gift for Sprite Stitch’s Swap 2011. My partner was riotpatch, and one of her favourite games was assassin’s creed. I love the series too, but have never got around to stitching anything for it, so thought it would be a brilliant idea to do something related to them. I got playing with some ideas, and decided I would try and hide a secret message in the poster (like the games do), so its the assassin’s logo, and in morse code is written “riotpatch”.
