And so it begins...

Here is what I've done so far. Not that impressive, but that's about 3 hours' work so I estimate at around 144 hours for the finished product. That's not counting the first and last squares for the title that I haven't designed yet!

For those that want it, here's a dropbox link to a hi-res version of the whole pattern that cross stitch designer spat out. Again, I don't have the names of the colours as I just judged them by eye and what I have in my thread box. if you want to be more specific you can probably find a lot of the true sprite colours online by googling around but I don't really have time for all that.

The eagle-eyed amongst you may realise I've already made a slight mistake in that the left hand side of the B is too thin. When I realised it was too late to go back and unpick it all, but I'm hoping it won't be that noticeable in the end (crosses fingers!)

As usual all questions/comments welcome!

One from a few months back:

 Made this for my 'lil bro last year...

Video Game Alphabet

This seemed to get a lot of love on reddit (here) so I thought it deserved its own blog. I'll be finishing it off this week, and then I will be making it into a full-on cross-stitch project. I'll be posting WIP pics here for those that are interested.

Once I'm done and I've ironed out the kinks etc and worked out which colours to use I'll put up the whole pattern, pics of the finished project and a hi-res version for anyone who wants to copy/steal it.

I also need to credit this guy as I stole/copied some of the sprites from there.
