Sprite Patterns April Day 30: The End of the Month and the End of a Set

Hello! I know that it's the last day of Sprite Patterns April, so I should probably have a fancy post, but the last couple of days that I've had substitute teaching have been very bad, so I am not going to do much today. To end the month, however, I have the last two patterns in my Yu Yu Hakusho set, featuring Kuwabara and Botan! These are my two favorites in the set, since I like the characters and think that they'll look really nice when I cross stitch them. I sort of want to make the whole set, though, so that might not be saying too much. If you guys are also interested in using these patterns for some sort of craft, here they are!


Even though I'm done posting for today, I'll be back within a couple of days with some more patterns. I hope that you guys liked all of the patterns this month! It went better than December did, so I have no complaints about it. Have a nice start to your May!

Sprite Patterns April Day 29: Two More, Fancier, Yu Yu Hakusho Patterns

Hello! It's getting really close to the end of Sprite Patterns April, but before it's over, I want to finish the set of Yu Yu Hakusho patterns that I started with yesterday! If you requested something else, don't worry! I still have a ton of patterns to post and will, in fact, be posting more stuff after the month has ended. For today, though, I have two more Yu Yu Hakusho patterns, tonight featuring Hiei and Kurama! Due to the gigantic hairstyles, these are the two largest patterns in the set, but I think that they ended up being pretty nifty, and not too oversized. Plus, at least in Kurama's case, there are some fancy clothes to stitch, too, which is fun.

I cannot type or spell tonight, so I am done posting for now! I'll be back with the last two characters in this set tomorrow, if you guys think you know who they are, but, until then, have a nice evening or day!

Sprite Patterns April Day 28: A New Yu Yu Hakusho Set

Hello! It's getting really close to the end of Sprite Patterns April, so it was probably too late to do this, but this afternoon, I sat down and made a brand new set of sprite patterns featuring the cast of Yu Yu Hakusho! I sat around and made the sprites, took a break, since at that point, I felt like my eyes were going to pop out of my head, and then came back to chart them. I hadn't actually thought that I'd get all six of them finished, but for some reason, I have an actual attention span today, so that worked to my advantage.

Like I mentioned before, this set of Yu Yu Hakusho patterns only has six members, meaning that it's not terribly extensive. I tried to make the most important cast members, though, so hopefully, these will be characters that some of you guys want to make. Today is the first day of these patterns, so I'm starting off by posting Yusuke, the main character, since that seems pretty reasonable, and pairing him with Keiko, his schoolgirl girlfriend. I get the feeling that the other two pairs of patterns will be the more popular ones, but I think these two came out really well, too, so here they are!


I'm done for today, and, unlike most days, I have a pretty good idea of what I'm going to post tomorrow! Until then, have a nice end to your weekend and good luck with your craft projects!

Sprite Patterns April Day 27: I Really Don't Know

Hello! Today, I have a really fancy requested pattern that I made a few months ago to post. It is a larger than normal sprite pattern, with bunny ears and piles of hair and a cool hat, and it is very detailed, with lots of bright colors. My only problem is that I really have no idea who this character is. My file of the sprite was labeled as "meroko-yui," so I'm guessing that's her name, and judging by her super pink hair and flippy little skirt, it would also be my guess, though I'm not completely sure, that she is from an anime, and probably not a super-serious martial arts one at that. I will probably google the character name after I'm done with this post, but I sort of like having her be mysterious! I hope that you guys enjoy this pattern of the lovely and mysterious Meroko Yui.
I have to make some more patterns, so I'm done blogging for today, but will hopefully have some nifty new stuff tomorrow. Until then, have a nice weekend!

Sprite Patterns April Day 26: One King of Fighters Pattern

Hello! Before I start, I just want to say that Sky, I get e-mails even if the post is a really old one, so I got your comment! I've wanted to make those charts for a long time and will have at least one of them next month. I couldn't reply through e-mail, but I wanted to let you know that I'd read it. Let me know if you'd like a pattern for Haruhi or Yuki first! I'd like to make Tsuruya, too, but she's not a very major character, so I'm not sure if that counts for anything. I got your comment, too, Rosa, and Kristine, I'm glad you liked the Deadman Wonderland patterns! Thank you all for the nifty comments!

Tonight, I was going to have something fancy to post, though I'm not sure what it would have been, but instead, I got distracted reading documents that the US government distributed during WWII to tell us how to get along with and understand the people of Great Britain. As it turns out, I am easily distracted. For tonight, however, I have a pattern of Leona from the King of Fighters games. I realize that I made this pattern mostly because I wanted it, but I'd been trying to get her giant ponytail to work for quite a while and finally got it right. If you too have been stitching my SNK sprite patterns, I hope that you like this pattern!
I'm really tired and should probably stop posting before I go back to archive.org and forget about the fact that I was working on this until after midnight. I'll be back tomorrow, so, until then, good luck with your crafts!

Sprite Patterns April Day 25: Sakura and Her Supporting Cast

Hello! It's the last Thursday in Sprite Patterns April, so I know that I'm really close to the end of this! As it has been for the rest of the month, this Thursday is for three new Cardcaptor Sakura patterns. Today is better than the other three posts have been, however, because I have one pattern of Sakura, and then two to go with her of Syoran and Meiling! (I have one of Tomoyo that I'll post eventually, too, but I need to figure out what floss color is best for her dress and am a bit lazy for that tonight.) Meiling and Syoran will be leading the post, since I think the patterns are cute and they haven't been flooding this blog for the entire month. The one that I have for Sakura, though, is particularly elaborate, with a frilly little flippy skirt and a giant jester hat, so I'm hoping that compensates for her reduced presence. Either way, though, I'm not done with her yet. I still have several sprites of her left to chart, some more of the other characters, and have a big Tsubasa art book that I haven't used for any patterns yet. Whether you take that as good news or a threat, here are the patterns for today.


These patterns are it for now, but I'll be back tomorrow with another pile of nonsense! Until then, good luck with your crafts, and have a nice evening!

Sprite Patterns April Day 24: Edward Elric

Hello! I am hoping that this is my last lazy and short post for a while, especially because tomorrow is another installment of Cardcaptor Sakura Thursday. For today, however, I have a sprite pattern of Edward Elric from Full Metal Alchemist! I made this pattern when the internet went out one night, because I have a Full Metal Alchemist artbook, but was pretty pleased with how it came out. Anyway, tonight, I am bad at writing, talking, and paying attention to things, so here is the pattern before I waste too much blog space.
I just tried to type "hello" in order to finish the blog post, so I'd better be finished for today. Tomorrow, however, I will have some cool new Cardcaptor Sakura patterns and, perhaps, a photo of my fancy new project. Have a good night and good luck with your crafts!

Sprite Patterns April Day 23: One Tekken Pattern

Hello! Tonight is going to be another short post, since my brain is fried from a combination of Hamlet and a train wreck two days of substitute teaching. I do have a nifty new sprite pattern for tonight, though, featuring Lili from Tekken. I'd wanted to make this pattern for quite a while, but I kept messing up the skirts and hair, which I felt was reason enough to abandon the pattern and start over three or four times. I think that I finally got her to look right this time, though, so I hope that you guys think so, too.
I was serious when I typed that I could not blog much tonight, so for now, I am done. I'll be back tomorrow with new patterns and yapping!

Sprite Patterns April Day 22: Robotech Stuff!

Hello! Normally, it takes me five to ten minutes to format a cross stitch pattern in order to post it here, provided that I have the sprite, or other image that I'm going to use, ready to go beforehand. Tonight, this took me an hour and five minutes to accomplish. Because of that, I only have one Robotech sprite pattern to post tonight, just as I'd threatened yesterday. However, I think that it's a really cool one, featuring Dana Sterling/Jeanne Francaix from Southern Cross/Robotech Masters (I think, anyway) in her standard outfit. In fact, I'm pretty sure that I like the pattern more than I like the character, which is not really saying that much for the pattern. I'm really looking forward to stitching this sprite, though, so I hope that you guys like the corresponding cross stitch chart.
I am sleepy now, after a longer than usual day of subbing and a pretty good night of running Pokemon League, so I am done now. Have a good evening!

Sprite Patterns April Day 21: Finally Done With Deadman Wonderland! Yay!

Hello! I have no attention span tonight. As it turns out, I couldn't sit still long enough to watch Gravity Falls, instead opting to wander around and eat Pop Tarts, and I'm so involved in The Cleveland Show that I've been wandering around even more and looking up different versions of Hamlet on Project Gutenberg. Because of that, I'm just going to post the last two Deadman Wonderland sprites for tonight and get that set finished. These patterns are not frilly and beautiful, but I think that they look like the characters intended, which is good enough. Please enjoy this floppy haired blonde guy and the shirtless man with an eyepatch!

I'm tired now, so I'm going to make some notes on an essay, play video games, and go to bed. Sounds awesome, right? I'll be back tomorrow, possibly with some super awesome new Robotech patterns (I can hear how excited all of you are already), so, until then, have a nice day or night, depending on your time zone and when you are reading this.

Sprite Patterns April Day 20: A Pattern and a Thing I Made

Hello! Today, I am not really too enthusiastic about blogging, so, in the interest of moving things along with the set of Deadman Wonderland sprite patterns, I'm going to post the most elaborate one of those today. Apparently, this character is named Wretched Egg, but what matters for tonight is that she's covered in purple and a puffy cape with lots of tiny details. I have no idea what's going on with this character, but I hope that you guys like the pattern.
With that posted, I also have another mini kit that I finished, with this one made by Needlemagic. It's a cute little picture of a hedgehog with a balloon, and, with all of the unnecessary details, was more fun to make than the Uncle Sam one. Plus, it actually fit in its frame, which was a nice. Here, surprisingly enough, is a decent photo of the project.
I am done blogging for today, but will have new stuff tomorrow. Have a nice Saturday evening!

Sprite Patterns 19: Super Sailor Moon

Hello! Last Friday night, I was watching two Sailor Moon movies with a girl I was babysitting for, and it seemed to me that, since I've been making sprite patterns for years now, I could probably improve on my Sailor Moon patterns. As it turned out, I was correct in thinking that making these patterns over and over again has caused me to get better at it. For tonight, I have a new sprite pattern of Sailor Moon in her Super Sailor Moon outfit. I was able to use more details in this pattern than in my old ones, but I think that the biggest difference is in her hair. There's less stitches worth of it now, but it looks twirlier and prettier, which I think is a big improvement. The skirt came out better this time, too, which made me really happy. If you guys, like me, are eager to cross stitch yet another tiny version of Sailor Moon, here is the pattern!
I don't really have any rational reason to quit blogging already, but I'm sort of tired of writing now, so I am done for today. I'll be back with more blog stuff tomorrow, so I hope that you guys have good weekends!

Sprite Patterns April Day 18: Another Sakura Thursday

Hello! It's Thursday again, which means that, as far as Sprite Patterns April goes, it's time for some more tiny Cardcaptor Sakura patterns! I feel like I have way too many of these, which likely is the case, but no one is complaining about it yet, so for today, I'm going to keep going. Plus, for next Thursday, I have a few of the other characters from the show, with one pattern in particular that I'm really happy with, so I'm looking forward to that.

The only one of these patterns that I was really sure that I wanted to post today was the one of Sakura in the pink and black puffy dress with the cat ears and the bell, because that was on a lot of the merchandise and actually came out well when I made the pattern of it. I know that I'm going to stitch it eventually, but am not sure what I want the glitter floss to normal floss ration to be as I work on it, so that's stopped me so far. Once I decided to post Sakura's cat dress, however, it seemed like I should just make all three of the patterns really good ones, so the other two for today are of her summer school uniform and her kimono.


With today's patterns posted, I actually have something that I've finished stitching to show off! It's nothing terribly fancy, since it's just my finished version of a $1.29 kit that I bought at Jo-Ann's, and in the end, it turned out that the actual stitching was a little too big for the frame that came with the kit. I made it as a silly gift for my sister, though, so I wasn't too worried about it. Here is a beautiful photo of my stitching of Uncle Sam, from a Plaid mini kit. I have a 3D version of the photo on my DS, but, unfortunately, I can't easily share the wonders of that with you guys.
I'm done with this blog for today, but I'll be back tomorrow with more chattering and nonsense. Have a nice day!

Sprite Patterns December Day 17: Two Pangya Patterns Featuring Characters With Names Starting With N

Hello! Today is the 17th day of Sprite Patterns April, and, as I have declared it to be so, it is a day for Pangya patterns. My rationale for posting these today is a bit like my posting the Fatal Fury patterns last week. I feel that I've been reasonable for enough days in a row to post patterns that a lot of people are probably not eagerly awaiting. I really like my patterns for today, though, and if any of you out there are also looking to cross stitch tiny versions of playable characters from Korean online golf games, it is your lucky day. I've posted a lot of patterns from the game in the past, but today, I have two characters that have never before graced this blog with their presence- Nell and Nuri. A few months ago, I did do a perler bead version of Nell, with a badly mangled hand thanks to my stunning ironing skills, but never put the pattern up before. Nuri's pattern is a lot newer, since I did that one on Easter, but, hopefully, it's just as good. Here are today's patterns!

I don't have much else for today, but, since tomorrow is Thursday, I'll have some new Cardcaptor Sakura patterns for you then! Until then, have a lovely evening!

Sprite Patterns April Day 16: Hi Hi Puffy Amiyumi

Hello! My computer is being slow and bad today, so I am hoping to get through today's post, the 16th of Sprite Patterns April, without any trouble. Some days, I can get it to do dozens of things at once without any trouble, but today, apparently, this whole idea of an internet browser is a little much for the poor machine. If I don't spend too long on this, though, things should be fine, so here is today's post!

For today, I have two sprite patterns from, because all of you wanted these so much, the Hi Hi Puffy Amiyumi Show. I made these patterns a couple of weeks ago, as I was lamenting that it didn't get to be on Netflix along with a lot of the other Cartoon Network shows, but I heard somewhere that the music licensing rights for it were really expensive. I don't know if that's true or not, but it seems reasonable enough that I believed it. I've posted a much bigger pattern from the show before, based on sprites from one of the video games, so I don't feel like I have to go into the whole, "Oh, I like Puffy so much and I was listenin' to them in the car last night, and I have a bunch of their records," thing again. Still, I'm really happy with how these patterns came out and am hoping to make them pretty soon. I hope that you guys like these, too!

I need to do some work to refill my patterns to post folder this afternoon, so I am actually not at all sure what I'm going to post tomorrow. I will have something for you, though, so, until then, have a nice day.

Sprite Patterns April Day 15: The Last of the Azumanga Daioh Sprites

Hello! Today is the 15th day of Sprite Patterns April, which is officially the middle of the month. I do not think that this will be a long post today, but I wanted to say that my thoughts are with the people of Boston before this post descends into idiocy.

As for the idiocy part of this post, I'm going to use today to try and make another dent in my Azumanga Daioh sprite patterns, since there are several characters on that show and I am posting them at an exceptionally slow rate. Because of that, you guys get three of them tonight, so that this set can be complete! I saved three major characters for the last post in this set, so here are Chiyo, Sakaki, and Tomo. They're all different heights, which is nice, I guess, since that makes them more interesting to stitch together. There isn't too much to analyze about these, though, so here are tonight's cross stitch patterns!



I am done for tonight, but will have more stuff to post tomorrow. I have no idea what I'll post yet, but it will probably be brightly colored and girly looking.

Sprite Patterns April Day 14: Finishing Up With the Persona Patterns I Had Left to Post

Hello! Today is the 14th day of Sprite Patterns April, and, as such, I have some new patterns for you guys! Since I finished off the reserves of patterns from one series in my "Still to Post" folder last night, it seems reasonable enough to do that again today. Therefore, I have two new patterns of characters that I can almost confidently say are from Persona 4, though all I'm really sure of is that they're in Persona 4 Arena. As I've said before, one of my brothers is often playing that as I make patterns, so, since Yosuke is one of the characters he uses most often, one of today's patterns is of him. I thought about trying to make the pattern based on what was on screen instead of looking up reference images, but, as it turns out, fighting games don't involve a lot of one character standing still for long periods of time, unless you're really lazy in Training Mode, so I had to take to image searching, anyway. The other character immortalized as a tiny cross stitch pattern for today is Yukiko, because both of their names started with the same letter, meaning that I felt it necessary to make the patterns as a pair.

I still have a ton of patterns in reserve, but I feel like I need to make more of them, so for now, I am done blogging. Just as it has been for the rest of the month, though, I'll be back tomorrow with more stuff! Have a nice end to your weekend!

Sprite Patterns April Day 13: Even More Stuff From Bleach

Hello! I forgot that I had to post here today until now, even though day 13 is quite an important day of Sprite Patterns April. I'm not sure why that is, but I have declared it so, meaning that, as far as this blog goes, it is true. That being said, this is not going to be my best post ever, since I'm unfocused, full of allergy nonsense, and haven't cross stitched anything since Thursday. I started to stitch one of my sprites tonight, by which I mean I threaded a needle, but then I remembered that I had to do this blog post, which sounded better than cross stitching, anyway. I'll work on it either later tonight or tomorrow.

For tonight, I have two more Bleach patterns, of Orihime and Rukia in their school outfits, since that seems like an easy enough thing to do. These are actually the last two Bleach characters in my folder, though I'll probably make more. I like how these came out, though, so I hope that you guys like them, too! I used a different type of school uniform for each of them, since it seemed boring to put both characters in the same dress.

I don't feel like I'm any good at putting sentences in order tonight, so I am done with this blog and, quite possibly, my computer in general for now. I'll be posting again tomorrow, though, so, until then, have a nice day!

Sprite Patterns April Day 12: More Azumanga Daioh

Hello! I was going to post later tonight, but I took Benadryl when I finished subbing and still have some stuff to do, so I thought I should post now, while I'm still awake. On the first day of the month, I posted one of the patterns in a set of Azumanga Daioh sprites I'd made, and then promptly forgot about the rest of them. That's why I'm posting two more of them today. Osaka is getting posted because she was on the page of finished sprites that I posted yesterday, meaning that you guys have seen her already, and then Kagura got chosen because I saw and clicked on her next. It's not too exciting, but I hope you guys like the patterns!

I'm done posting for today, but will have new patterns for you guys tomorrow. Until then, I hope your weekend gets off to a good start!

Sprite Patterns April Day 11: More Sakura and a Finished Page of My Stitched Sprite Patterns

Hello! I didn't end up finishing my sheet of stitched sprites last night, since I instead made a tray of cookie brownies from a mix, which I followed by playing an intense amount of Super Collapse. I did finish it this morning, though, so I now have 19 more cross stitched versions of my sprites that I can chop up and add to my collection of standees! My theme for this set was school outfits, since I have a lot of patterns with them, they're reasonably detailed, and having a theme saved me a lot of flipping through my patterns binder and trying to decide what to make next. I thought that it might get boring to stitch one thing like that, but, as it turned out, there was still quite a bit of variety, and more room for glitter than I'd expected. Here is the scan of my full page of 14-count plastic canvas, with the character names typed underneath it in tiny italics. I've posted most of these patterns already, but for the characters that haven't shown up here yet, you can expect to see them soon.
Top Row (Left to Right): Gogo (Kill Bill), Miyuki (Lucky Star), Michelle and Amara (Sailor Moon, and no, I can't remember their Japanese names right now, so the English ones will have to do)
Second Row: Yugi (Yu Gi Oh, which I'm sure every one of you needed to be told), Honey (Ouran Host Club), Mitsuki Sanada (Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure, which I almost didn't type because there's no anime fan alive that hasn't seen that a dozen times), Max Fischer (Rushmore), Su (Love Hina)
Third Row: Yosuke (Persona 4), Sakakibara (Another, which was an interesting book, and, from what I've seen, a mind numbingly boring anime), Labrys (again from Persona, but if I don't say here that she's only in the fighting game, some fan of the series will shake their head in disappointment at me), Osaka (Azumanga Daioh)
Bottom Row: Kyosuke (Rival Schools, a video game which, in the near future, all of you will be sick to death of), Ishida (Bleach), Mei (Another, again, because I didn't want to make one of the characters and then skip the other), Kisarah Westfield (Neo Geo Battle Coliseum/Aggressors of Dark Kombat), Athena (because I've never made her before, from King of Fighters)

Now that I have that unnecessarily wordy character list finished, it is time for today's cross stitch patterns, which, like last Thursday, are all of Cardcaptor Sakura! Just like last week, this is a trio of fluffy and overly detailed sprite patterns, with what I hope is a good variety of colors between the three of them. My favorite of the three is the fairy princess outfit in the first one, so I'm considering stitching that one very soon, but the pajamas one and the weird one with the puffy teal hat and devil wings are cool, too, so I hope you guys like them.



I think that I've done enough posting for today, but, since this is a sprite patterns month, I'll be back tomorrow with something else! I want to take a picture of the standees that I make from these again, too, since I've added at least 50 to my collection since the last photo. I'm not sure when I'll actually do that, though, so it probably won't be in tomorrow's post.

Sprite Patterns April Day 10: Plodding Through the Deadman Wonderland Patterns

Hello! Today, which is the 10th day of Sprite Patterns April, I am sort of posting to get it over with, so I'm going to post a couple more patterns in the requested Deadman Wonderland set so that I can also eventually get that finished. As I've said in the past, I really don't know anything about these characters, aside from appearance, so I can't say too much about them. As far as appearance goes, however, I'm really happy with how this set of patterns came out. I have complained about them a lot, but, especially with the two that I'm posting today, I think that I at least got them to look decent. Because of that, I hope that those of you who have been waiting for the patterns in this set like today's cross stitch charts for Minatsuki (who I saw a bit much of on Google Image Search, as far as disturbing comic bubbles go) and Karako, who I think ended up being my favorite of the set. Her hair was a bit of a pain to make, but in the end, it worked nicely.
As far as patterns go, this is it for me today, but I'm almost done with my plastic canvas sheet of stitched sprites, so if I finish that, I'll post a photo or a scan of it tonight. Until then, however, I am done. Have a nice day!

Sprite Patterns April Day 9: Team Rocket!

Hello, everyone! Yesterday, I said that I'd have recognizable characters for today, day 9 of Sprite Patterns April, so I have some patterns of Team Rocket, from Pokemon (because that was a necessary statement to add for readers of this blog), for this post. When I first started making sprite patterns, I made one of Jessie and James together, which I thought was pretty cool, but when I was working on stuff for this month, it bothered me that I hadn't made patterns of them individually. I know that I hadn't done their patterns that way at first due to the difficulties that Jessie's hair presented. Now, however, I am experienced enough at this nonsense to pixel up as many weird hairstyles as I want. Plus, I decided to experiment and see if I could make a decent pattern of Meowth, too. I'm not sure if I pulled it off, but I am going to post it anyway!


I do not feel capable of writing sentences tonight, so I am done for now! I will be back tomorrow, though, hopefully with a more coherent post. Until then, have a nice night and a good start to your tomorrow.

Sprite Patterns April Day 8: Kim Kaphwan and Family

Hello! I probably should have posted here sooner, seeing as the eighth day of Sprite Patterns April is an exciting event indeed. I just spent a little over an hour doing product registration and surveys on Club Nintendo, though, so take heart in the fact that instead of putting anything up on this blog, I was, in fact, earning virtual coins so that I could download Kirby's Pinball Land. When you see what I have to post for today, however, it may not seem like such a loss to you that I stalled about posting my patterns. Since I made it through an entire week of patterns without once posting any characters from SNK games, today that's what I'm going to do. I figured that if I quarantined my old fashioned fighting game patterns like this, it would be best for everyone. However, that means that today, you're stuck with three cross stitch charts featuring Fatal Fury's Kim Kaphwan and his two sons from Garou: Mark of the Wolves (which I have more patterns from under the Fatal Fury tag, though they're both of Rock), Jae Hoon and Dong Hwan. It will either terrify or please you to know that these are only half of a set that I made on a really boring weekend afternoon, so there are a few characters far more obscure than these, though still tangentially related, that you guys have to look forward to eventually being posted here. They don't all have the matching outfits like these three do, though, so they're going to be stuck on their own post.

Before I start talking about the characters in their respective games, which I almost started to do, despite the fact that it would take paragraphs upon paragraphs of crazy person rambling, I will simply post today's patterns. I'm going to make them all, as I do with most of my fighting game patterns, but I hope that someone else out there likes these, too!


As I wrote this post, I made the discovery that I had a couple of unposted patterns I hadn't realized had gone ignored, so I need to save those to my desktop before I forget about it. Don't worry, though! My post for tomorrow will feature characters that I am fairly certain are more well recognized than these guys are. Until then, have a nice day and good luck with your crafty stuff!

Sprite Patterns April Day 7: Two Requested Naruto Patterns

Hello! Today is the seventh day of Sprite Patterns April, meaning that I've officially been going for a week without panicking that I won't have enough patterns for the entire month! I don't really have any festive patterns to commemorate this thrilling day, though, so instead, I'm just going to post some Naruto patterns that were requested through the Dork Stitch Facebook page. Even though I don't really dislike Naruto, at least not with the same enthusiasm that I'll say terrible things about other anime, I couldn't say that it was my favorite show by a long shot. As far as making patterns goes, though, Naruto sprites are great to work on. The characters are all very detailed and in really bright colors, so it's a bit of a challenge to get them to look right, and, at least from what I've stitched, they look cool when they're finished, too. I'm often not quite sure who the characters I'm making are, meaning that while I work on the patterns, there's a lot of mislabeled sprites floating around my desktop. For today, however, I am hoping that these patterns are of Ino and Temari.

I'm done posting for today, but will be back with more patterns tomorrow! Until then, enjoy the end of your weekend!
