Update 1st April I've had a few people say they have had problems viewing the PCStitch files so I have now added PDF versions of the patterns into the ZIP file available for download.
I've also tweaked the colours used in a few of the patterns. I recommend downloading the new patterns if you have not already started stitching the old ones.
I am also thinking of doing some quote bookmark patterns. If you have a fave quote or character you would like bookmarked feel free to leave me a comment!
DYING FOR SEASON 2!!! SO CLOSE NOW!!!
I haven't done any cross stitch patterns in ages but the urge suddenly grabbed me earlier this week. I am absolutely in love with Game of Thrones at the moment. The TV series is amazing and I'm almost finished the second book (I know it will spoil the next TV series... But I just HAD to know what happens next!).
So there are five patterns, each featuring the sigil and motto of a major house: Stark, Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon and Greyjoy. The sigil's are based on the artwork of the TV series. Each bookmark measures approx 2x7" when stitched on 18-count aida.
Click download on the right to get a ZIP of all the patterns. If you stitch one of these please send me a message when you're finished so I can see the end result! (also please credit me with a link back to this page). I have not yet stitched any of these myself, so I warn you to double check that the cotton colours I suggest match what you have in mind for your design.
I saw Rise of the Guardians last week, and oh my gosh, I had to get started on this right away.
I plan to Cosplay Jack Frost for one of the days of Ichibancon in Charlotte NC.
I couldn't find a good method to paint his hoodie, so I came up with my own. I also plan to add glitter nailpolish (not mentioned in the tutorial, due to the fact I have yet to test it) over some of the frost areas to help add that extra sparkle.
This is my first tutorial, and it's a fairly simple concept. Hopefully it can encourage you all to try it, because I know I tend to get scared when I put paint to a garment I don't want to ruin. Also, this costume should be done at the end of December, only due to the fact that the wig I want is on backorder (they assure me it should be in my possession before the first weekend of Ichi, if not, then oh well!) and things like that. At least I can finish the outfit and staff (which will get started next week once I get home!
