Marth and Ike (SSBB)

Post by Leesa »

Hello! I'm new to the forums, but I love looking at the awesome crafts.

I just finished one of mine, and since it relates to video games I decided I would post it here and see what you all think. The characters are Marth and Ike, and I borrowed the sprites for the pattern from AbyssWolf on DA, so credit goes there in that case.

It took me a few weeks to do, and it's about 50 colors. 22 count Aida 7.5 X 9 inches. I can't remember how many stitches it is.

I'm not familiar with the game, but impressive work nonetheless!

Wow, I've just started the Pit Pattern that Johnal made so I can see how much hard works gone into this. I'm only doing mine on 16 count. 22 count is a bit too small for me I think. Anyone who does there work on 22 count aida is amazing in my book :clapping: . Your eyes must be really hurting!! :blink: and possibly bog eyed :blink: :lol:
How did you find working on this fabric and any tips with working on it?

When I started cross stitching, I think I started off at a pretty small count Aida. 18 or so. I hadn't really notice much of a change in difficultly in stitching this, but that might just be me. I wanted the stitches to be smaller to make it look better. ^_^ I can't really think of any tips, though.

Thanks for all the comments, though!
