Mario Cross Stitch

Posted on Dec 4, 2009


Since it got featured on Reddit and Stumbledupon I’ve been getting a lot of emails about my Mario Cross stitch so i thought i’d post a proper picture of it – here it is proudly hung on our living room wall. I cant take all the credit for it though, Jonjo did the sky ;)

I got the frame from Ikea (its called Ung Drill) and its pretty big at 59×85 cm, i’d had it for a long time and was saving it for a special project. I counted how many stitches across and down i’d need to fill the frame and then made the cross stitch chart to the right size by taking an image of a mario level and laying the sprites over the top. I an aida with a large weave, i cant remember what size it is but each stitch is around 4mm across, and a mix of DMC and Anchor threads. Jonjo worked it out to be 12000 (ish) stitches, it took us three weeks to complete.
