Sprite Patterns April Day 4: Three Cardcaptor Sakura Patterns

Hello, again! It's time for the fourth day of Sprite Patterns April! Just like I have been for the past couple of days, I've been trying to decide which patterns to post up until I actually start typing. For today, however, it seemed like it would be reasonable to start posting some sprite patterns from the most ridiculously extensive set that I've been working on lately. When I posted some magical girl sprites last month, someone asked in the comments if I'd ever seen Cardcaptor Sakura. As it so happens, I have, in fact, seen it quite often, and though I couldn't say that I have the same enthusiasm for it that a lot of anime fans do, when making sprite patterns, I like to make frilly dresses in bright colors. The show's never-ending stream of fluffy clothes, when combined with the fact that I have nothing against it, means that, so far, I have made 19 patterns of Sakura, along with a few patterns of other characters. In order to make these, I've been running through an anime episode guide in order, so if you have a favorite Sakura outfit that doesn't show up until really late in the series, I won't be posting it today. The ones that I am posting, however, are not in any particular order, so I apologize if you temporarily got all excited about seeing sprite patterns for her clothes from the first three episodes. I can't really imagine that happening for anyone, but since this is the internet, you really never know what'll happen.
The first of the patterns for today is Sakura in her long-sleeved school outfit, since she wasn't starring in a cartoon about a little girl who skipped school all of the time and, therefore, wore this a lot.
In this pattern, you can see that I was not sure how to label most of these charts, as I couldn't give all of them the same title. I had a lot of comics and trading cards where she wore this, so it was sort of fun to make this pattern. I couldn't think of anything better to call it than Red Riding Hood Sakura, though, so there you go.
Here is the last pattern for the day, of a strange outfit that, had I been Sakura, would have been the point where I threw a fit and told Tomoyo, the costume designer girl, that I didn't think we needed to be friends anymore. The pattern came out well enough, though, and, since it's not one of the really nice ones that I'm saving for another post, is good enough for today. Plus, stitching this would be a good excuse to use up some pastel floss.

I have no idea what I'm going to post here tomorrow, but I'll be back with two or three more patterns then. I still have tons of Cardcaptor Sakura patterns left, but, since I don't really want to post them two days in a row, it'll probably be a little bit before I post more of them. There will be something here tomorrow, though, so, until then, have a nice day!


  1. These patterns look lovely, since I grew up with Sakura, I'm sure I'll have a blast stitching these and the ones to come!

  2. Thank you so much! I love these!
