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 the perfect size to stitch (unless you do all of them at once)…
To Be The Very Best Pokemon Tattoo
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… 😛
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:
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.
Pokemon Home Sweet Home
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!
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.
Another Pokemon stitch worth the epic tag, this circle uses recolored sprites, arranged in a circle, forming all 151 original pokemon, made from an official Pokemon image. You can download this epic Pokemon cross stitch pattern for free!
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.
There are many pokemon quotes; such as “are you a boy or girl?”, but this one is basically a meme in a cross stitch.
These were made as a request over on the SpriteStitch forums, and are pride of place on my xmas tree every year!
3D Handheld Pokedex
I know… another one of mine, but in fairness, everywhere I go on shows, everyone always asks if I’ve got it with me…
