I was watching a youtube video and the vlogger brought themselves a pack of three pokemon in teacups. These Japanese edition toys are SUPER hard to get in the UK (belive me, I tried), and so I wanted to stitch it instead. Unlike most of my stuff instead of creating image from scratch I placed together existing sprites, like my surfing pikachu and Pokemon battle cross stitch. I reshaped the tea cup and the shading was terrible, but with a little change of sizes to fit a little better and it now looks super cute!

I love Japan. That shouldn’t be too surprising to hear if you read my site regularly. In the past I’ve taken the traditional Japanese print style and created cross stitches out of it, like my Japanese Gengar cross stitch. However I’ve never done a faithful rendition of the style.
 
A while ago I went to the museum in London and saw a print of the Great Wave, and its stuck in my head for a while, maybe a year or more. I recently remembered it when I saw missypena’s Great Wave Off Kanto posters.
With her permission I remade the two images, combined them and edited them to fit the original slightly better. This work took maybe 200 hours or more, and is by far the largest piece I have completed. However, I think it might be my best to date.
 
Thankfully my work with the great wave came in super handy, as its one of the artworks featured in my Fine Art Cross Stitch book!

Despite the years of cross stitch I had under my belt, I’d never used waste canvas. This idea was originally planned to use it just to test myself more than anything, however quite quickly I realised I couldn’t get the journal wet. I shoved it in my cross stitch kit for a while and forgot about it.
 
After a lot of foundering I came across the work of Severija, and loved the way she cross stitched directly onto objects (mostly using a drill). I didn’t need a drill for this project, but I thought it would be a great example of her style. So much in fact that I also created a blog peice on how to cross stitch on objects without plastic canvas.
 
This project got my in the spirit of cross stitched objects, so I stitched up a leather bracelet in a Pokemon theme too.

The Best Pokemon Cross Stitch

Pokemon!

My favorite thing to cross stitch is Pokemon, and for good reason. Not only is it one of the best loved franchises out there, but there’s so much to choose to stitch, and so many in-jokes!
And all the sprites are perfect size to stitch (unless you do all of them at once)…

To Be The Very Best Pokemon Tattoo

Pokemon Tattoo Cross Stitch
The best like no one ever was! One day I will get this tattooed on me. You know… somewhere I can hide it so no one over the age of 30 can see it… 😛

Epic Pokemon

Well that was obvious wasn’t it? One of the best Pokemon stitches of all time, has to be the largest one known. Whilst the above picture is great at showing its size, you don’t really get a grasp of it until you see this awesome video below:

Pika Pile

How cute is this!?! All credit to HardcodeEskimoKisses who created the pattern, although the above is stitched by StitchPlease. I especially love balloon Pika’s expression.

I just made this pattern available to download for free, however its been recreated by many others in slightly different styles. All Pokemon games start in your home sweet home, and this pattern only goes to glorify that!

Pokemon Badges

There’s only one way to be a pokemon master and that’s to collect all the badges. The above set are scaled correctly to the first season, using red/blue sprites.

Ketchup Pikachu

I LOVE THIS IMAGE! One of the best scenes from the original pokemon series when they have no food, but Pikachu is hungry. Its also a great weekend project, so you might want to give it a try.

Hardest Decision

There are many pokemon quotes; such as “are you a boy or girl?”, but this one is basically a meme in a cross stitch.

Pokemon Baubles
