Epic Pokemon Generation 1 Cross Stitch Complete by lizardlea Epic Pokemon Generation 1 Cross Stitch Complete by lizardlea

This took 130 days with 914 hours of work. (Okay, way less hours than that because I was constantly stopping but that's what got written down.) This means it took me less than one day to do a single Pokemon - I averaged about 6 hours per Pokemon.

Want to commission me? Send me a note and we can discuss! (No, I will not do something this big, it's insane!)
Here's my Etsy shop: [link]

Holy. Crap. You guuuuuys! I got a DD! Thank you so much, it means a lot! I will reply to every comment that I can and thank you all in advance for the favorites! <3

If you like the original Pokemon music and this cross-stitch, you should find some enjoyment out of me in this:

Hi there. After watching you on youtube doing this stitch I had to try it myself. I was wondering if you changed the colors of mew? If you did what colors did you use? The ones the pattern say to use are too brown.

What size of aida cloth did you use and where can you find it. I've been looking all over for it.

in cross stitching y do u have to stretch the fabic before u start using it?

You stretch the fabric constantly while stitching it because you want to keep the fabric tight so that your stitching is tight. Using a hoop helps this but keeping it tight in the hoop requires stretching also. I hope that makes sense.

Michaels or Hobby Lobby sells rolls of aida. I suggest 14 count.

I've seen all the patterns on spritestitch myself and I have been tempted to try them but I can't figure out what size Aida I should use, I know it's in inches on the page but what is the size in centimeters? =/

Other then that, great work! It's quite a detailed piece! <3

Is the link in the description not working again? It works when I click on it but the site can be temperamental at times, it should work eventually.

I am attempting this but I could only find 14 count Aida do you think that will be okay?

:iconjdayem:
jdayem Featured By Owner May 12, 2015
I am using 14 count. I couldn't find an 18 count, so I got an extra big 14 count, and it works just fine. I have about 30 extra stitches on both sides, and about 15 extra on the top and bottom. Since I made sure I had enough room it works the same.

I am attempting this project as a gift for my friend, and I'm having some problems :( (Sad)  How did you do the back stitching? The pattern you linked (which is the one I'm using) doesn't come with the back stitch on it, so I'm wondering how you did it or if you did it at all? I've just finished the first page, and I'm now at the dilemma of do I continue onto page two, or do I try and do the backstitching with no guide? Thanks for any help!
