Super Mario wedding card

Continuing with the Super Mario World theme. I wanted to make my second cross stitching work. This time I decided to create my own design of Mario and Peach together for a wedding card. The design contains also a heart and the initial letters of the bride and groom. From the sprites I created one png containing the correct layout.

Using the image with kxstitch I created the following pattern. Wedding card pattern pdf

Here is the end result:

The stitching was made in a 14 count Aida fabric which was glued to a cardboard frame. On the other side the card contains a poem that I made and greetings for the newly wed. I’m pretty happy with the end result. The only thing I would change in the cross stitch is that Mario’s skin ended up just a bit too dark compared to the original sprite color. The cardboard frame was a bit challenging, maybe next time using a bit less glue would help. Hopefully the couple still liked it. 🙂 At least it’s personal and one of a kind.

Congratulations for the married couple!


Bubble Bobble bookmark

Now I made my first cross stitching exercise. I still continued with the Bubble Bobble theme as the graphics are so simple. I made this simple bookmark in 14ct aida.
