Okay, Cross Stitch Pattern Making Is Once Again Fun

I have been feeling kind of blah about this blog lately, but today, I went to Anime News Network and saw that Sanrio had designed one Hello Kitty to look like each character from Love Live School Idol Project, and then I suddenly wanted to make every cross stitch pattern ever. I got started on that set this afternoon, and will probably start posting patterns from it later this week, because they're cute and fluffy and in bright colors, and I want all nine of them to be on my wall. After working on those for way too long, I went to turn on my TV and HBO Go wasn't working, so I came back to my computer and started working on sprite patterns again, which was also fun. When I went to actually chart things, it got a bit iffy, because I forgot what sizes I copy and pasted all of the pattern elements at, which is why when you look at tonight's pattern, you may feel like the preview image is a little too small. It's a cool pattern, though, so I'm sure you can deal with it.

Tonight's post is for a sprite pattern of Imperator Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road. (If you are surprised by this, I think it might be the first time you have been to this blog.) I made it because this blog needs more cross stitch patterns of people with robot arms who drive semi trucks from hell, but am pretty happy with how the pattern came out. The outfit I gave her in the pattern is a composite of a couple different ones, because I wanted to stitch her on black fabric, but I think the point comes across well enough. I'm probably going to use silver floss for the arm and belt buckles, too, but it's totally up to you if you want to suffer through metallic floss or not. Anyway, here is the pattern!

I'm going to go stitch this now, while listening to my sister's lovely radio show, and then I am going to watch Game of Thrones and Silicon Valley, as the internet has stopped failing me. Soon, I'll be back to post some really frilly-girly nonsense, but until then, good luck with your crafts!

  1. Yea for patterns. This character reminds me of the one Rose McGowen played in that Tarantino movie, the name of which escapes me. And Hello Kitty reminds me there's some weird show coming to town this weekend. I'm sure I'll like your patterns better, they're not full sized!
