Animal Crossing, Pangya, and Pokemon!

Hello, everyone! When I posted my International Hermit and Stitch Weekend thing last night, I promised a post today, because I was all excited about having added a bunch of new cross stitch sprite patterns to my jar. I am a little less excited about it now, but still glad to be posting! There's no guarantee that I will post one of the new patterns, since I haven't drawn tonight's sprites yet, but I'm hoping to get at least one request from the jar. It's time to see what tonight holds, though.

The first pattern that I chose for tonight, which is definitely not a request, is of Max, one of the playable characters in Pangya, my favorite golf-themed MMORPG. He's not a character that I play as too much, though his stats make it easy for me to play well when I'm half asleep, so he's not in a very fancy outfit. This biker sort of outfit is what he usually wears, though, so I think he's recognizable. If you're a fan of Max, because I've run into several of them in the game, I hope that you like this pattern and have enough grays to stitch it successfully!
Tonight's second pattern is a Pokemon character, though she is not the best known member of the cast. A few months ago, I got on a pattern making spree that coincided with an I-want-to-make-a-bunch-of-Team-Rocket standees spree, which, considering the theme of this blog, is not totally inconvenient. Because of that, however, I ended up with patterns of characters like Domino, from the stunning film Mewtwo Returns. (I wish that I had something nicer to say about that, since a lot of people seem to like it, but really, that's the movie where there's a scene at the start in which Ash and another character discuss the flavor of water. It was not my style.) Despite Domino's origins, however, I was really pleased with this pattern. Her hair worked nicely and I think that I got her uniform to look cool, so I hope that some of you agree.
My final pattern for tonight is not one that was requested, but, neverthless, I'm very happy that I chose her! This sprite pattern cross stitch chart is of Isabelle, who is your secretary in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. I wasn't sure if I could make a pattern of a dog character, but I've been playing Animal Crossing so much lately that I at least wanted to try. Luckily, I think that it worked! I've stitched this pattern already, so I can vouch for the fact that it stitches up decently. I think that the giant head and eye spacing keeps her looking properly Animal Crossing-like, too! Anyway, the preparations have been made, so please enjoy this cross stitch chart! (Also, if there are any Animal Crossing characters that you guys would like to see, let me know! This pattern was really fun, so it would be cool to turn it into a set.)
I didn't end up choosing any requested stuff from my jar tonight, and none of it is from my new set, either, but I'm not disappointed in what I did end up picking! If any of you guys want to cross stitch these, or bead them or anything, I hope that it goes well for you.

I should be posting again very soon, since I'm almost done with my Pacific Rim project, so, until then, good luck with your own projects!


  1. I've been so addicted to Animal Crossing New Leaf. I'm never going to get any stitching done now! The game is so evil too, like you don't even have to earn Bells before upgrading - you get a loan!

  2. Likewise, an Animal Xing addict, and love your sprite of Isabelle! I would love to see what you could do with Kicks or Brewster, but there are so many AC characters that would be fun sprites. :)

  3. Animal crossing!!! in spanish is canella :) thanks
