Cross-Stitch #3: Pixel Thor

January 7, 2014 8 comments

As I mentioned previously, I made a bunch of smaller cross-stitch projects as presents for various folks for the holidays.

My partner’s littlest sister (she’s 20, but still the littlest one of the family) is a big fan of the Avengers. But I’d already done the Avengers logo for my friend, and I wanted a new pattern. I get bored easily, what can I say.  I decided to focus on one of the Avengers solo instead, and after narrowing down to her two favorite Avengers (after some intense Facebook-stalking), I chose Thor.

I found a pattern on Pinterest for making the Avengers out of post-it notes that I thought would easily translate into cross-stitch.  And it did! Adorably so, if I do say so myself.

Cross-Stitch #2: Avengers Logo

December 28, 2013 4 comments

I’ve been working most of the year on a very difficult cross-stitch pattern, which is why I haven’t posted a completed one since last December.  But I decided to make a few simpler ones as presents for various folks for the holidays.

One of my friends is a big fan of the Avengers (and comics in general), so when I saw this pattern available for free on The Happy Hooker’s blog, I knew I had to make it for her.

Avengers logo cross-stitched in black and framed in a wooden hoop.The thread I used was silky, so it ended up having a subtle, almost silk-screened effect.  I was really happy with the result!
