Hello! As some of you who have visited this blog in the past may have noticed, I like to cross stitch Pokemon stuff, something that was made very doable by the sprite-based graphics in Pokemon games. Now that Pokemon X and Y are coming out for the 3DS, however, the games are going to have 3D graphics, which means that, while it won't be impossible, stitching graphics directly from the games will be much more difficult. As always, however, Nintendo is still regularly releasing really nice production art of upcoming Pokemon and human characters before the games are actually out, so it is still possible to do all sorts of cross stitched and perler beaded fan art, even if it does take longer to make the patterns.
Anyway, earlier today, I got a request on an older post for a pattern of Sylveon, the new Eevee evolution that fits the newly announced fairy type of Pokemon. Hopefully, this will lead to the trading card game getting some bubblegum pink energy cards, because that would be exactly what the world needs. I had a different big pattern to post today, of a character that absolutely no one other than myself had requested from an anime that I would say is pretty obscure. A fluffy pink Pokemon with ribbons and bows that people actually want to cross stitch seems like a better thing to post than the hero of one of my favorite toy commercial anime, though, so I've spent the last few hours preparing this cross stitch pattern of Sylveon!
Sylveon's pattern is pretty large for this blog, at 89 stitches tall, but it should be detailed enough that it isn't boring to stitch. My only problem with making it would be that so many of the stitches are white, which would get tedious and frustrating on white or even ivory Aida cloth, but luckily, the color scheme is pastel enough that this should look nice on a lot of the colors of Aida that they have at stores like Jo-Ann's. If you intend to use this for a non-stitching project, I'm sure that you don't care about any of that. No matter what craft you intend to use this chart for, though, here is Sylveon.
