Epic Pokemon Generation 1 Cross Stitch Complete

By lizardlea
Pattern (which I did NOT create!): [link]
Daily Progress: [link]

Fan page: [link]

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.
100 hours of minecraft building here i come! amazing work!!

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.

So I really want to do this but I'm having trouble finding fabric big enough.  Where did you buy yours?
saber4734's avatar
Michaels or Hobby Lobby sells rolls of aida. I suggest 14 count.

This is awesome! ^0^
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
