5 Best Fallout Cross Stitches

Glow in the dark Fallout 3 Pipboy Cross Stitch by Crafter Dark (source: crafterdark.com.au)

I recently finished the last piece of Fallout 4 DLC, and with a pending 3-5 year wait until the next one I thought I would round up the last of Fallout until then with 5 Fallout cross stitches to tide you over until Fallout 5.

Can you see that? I mean…wow. Just… wow. This amazing (and epic) piece was inspired by the Nuka Quantum of Fallout 3, using a fan made poster to create a great cross stitch.

All those years squired away in a soul-less, possibly dangerous vault. What else would there be to do than cross stitch classic samplers? This fantastic example combines a few simple stitches as well, making not only a fantastic cross stitch, but a fantastic bit of Fallout fan art.

Made for the annual spritestitch charity quilt, user SonnySplendor created this amazing cross stitch inspired by Fallout New Vegas. It was so impressive that I also featured it as the title cross stitch for the SpriteStitch Round Up on Mr X Stitch that month.

This fantastic cross stitch is so good I’ve even used it before in my post Clever tricks to make cross stitch patterns pop. Its clever neon glow in the dark thread really brings the HUD of the pipboy, to showcase a VERY cleverly put together project.

And of course, where would I be without a killer Fallout piece by myself?

When I gave embroidery a try last year, it was a bit too simple for my liking. However, I got inspiration to try again after seeing a piece in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

I love Fallout 3, and I had just finished New Vegas too, so wanted to do something fallout related, I’d seen a few vault boys around but none of them were good enough in my eyes, or whole, so I had to make my own pattern.
