Mamegoma the Blobby Looking Seal (I Know That Label Is Not Proper or Official, But It Is True)

Hello! I have no big reason to post here today. I have not been very productive with my cross stitching lately, and I don't have anything very exciting to type about, either. However, a couple of weeks ago, I got a new package of Bonbon yarn, which is a bag of tiny balls of sparkly yarn that I use for plastic canvas stuff, and I made some patterns of mascot type characters for it. My big revelation while working on this, which I'm sure will sound stupid to other nerds who like cute cartoon animals that exist only to sell stationery, is that San-X and Sanrio are different companies. Before I made these patterns, I thought that, despite the fact that they don't seem particularly edgy or scandalous, San-X was some sort of sub brand to Sanrio that existed to sell stuff to people who thought they were too sophisticated for all of the Hello Kitty nonsense floating around stores. I am not sure what made me think this, as dogs with afros seem to be on about the same level as cats with giant red bows on their ears, but that is what I thought.

None of that actually affects today's cross stitch pattern, but since it is of a San-X character, I thought that it was worth typing about. Today's pattern is of Mamegoma, which is either a blobby looking seal or a group of blobby looking seals. I was unable to figure that out, though I'm not sure it matters. This pattern is not very complicated, since I designed it to use for a plastic canvas pattern with a small amount of colors, but that means that you can stitch it in whatever colors you like best! I used a dark blue outline with a bright blue fill in, since those were the colors I had glittery yarn in, but it would look nice with just about any set of colors.

I don't have much else to say for today, and want to go make some sprite patterns, so that's it for today's blog post! I have a couple more patterns to go with this one coming up, as well as a ton of new sprite patterns, so I should be able to post again very soon. Until then, though, good luck with all of your craft projects, and, as always, if you have a pattern request, feel free to leave it in the comments!
