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.

After seeing a piece on Mr X Stitch I fell in love with the idea of doing a stereoscopic stitch. You have to wear red blue glasses to see the 3D, but hostly I think the image without is just a nice looking.

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.

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”.

This was for another craft swap on Sprite Stitch, this one was for riotpatch! This was the secondary bit of my swap stuff, the other one was the Abstergo glow in the dark poster I did, but these were just for fun.
They are pins of Altair and Ezio from the assassin’s creed games, they’re about an inch high.

After doing my previous optimus prime cross stitch transformer, I wanted to continue the series. Many people related the Optimus Prime to a paper robot made by PaperRobots1999 (Sadly no longer active), however they also had a few other photos of future projects which never happened due to the site closing. This was one of them, meaning I had to work out the pattern based off of a picture; for the first time ever.
Like optimus, its based on the original toy, so is a Macross VF-1S Valkyrie in generation 1 anime colors.
 
I have also made plans for a Soundwave cross stitch transformer which you can get on my etsy store.
 
If you look out for Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine, I will be published in their March issue!
 
You can buy this pattern on my Etsy shop and many other transformers, so go have a look! LINK

I love pokemon, as I may have said before, and I wanted to do something based on the original blue and red games, and when my chance came up with another Sprite Stitch competition, I couldn’t resist.
Results: I didn’t win, but I came VERY close. Maybe next time ๐Ÿ˜€
