Sorry, Mario, your Princess is in another cross-stitch

I took a weekend off from working on Hyrule. (I know, I was shocked too.) It ended up being a good thing because A.) it helped to give me that break that I have been looking for and B.) I finished something that wasn’t Christmas themed.

So, I went from one Nintendo kingdom to another and created a pattern for Princess Peach. I went ahead and stitched her on a piece of ecru AIDA cloth that I had kicking around the house, but really, any color could work. (Although if you use white, you’re going to have to backstitch the gloves so they show up.) The design size is just under 4″x4″ — it fits into a 5″ hoop perfectly.

It took me part of Friday and most of Saturday to finish — probably about 6-8 hours. (I’m really bad at calculating time when it comes to cross-stitching because I tend to just pick it up and work on it when I can.)

I’m going to just hang up this up in the hoop I stitched it in and put it on my wall of awesomeness
, next to my Halo poster (geek!). 

Want to cross-stitch your own? Of course you do! Just go ahead and right-click the link and save it to your computer or click the link and the chart will appear it all of its glory. (Sorry, no fancy pdf files for me — I cannot for the life of me figure out a way to convert the Stoik file into one…if anyone has an idea, let me know!)

If there is enough interest, I would be willing to make up chart with Princess Daisy coloring…just give me a shout in the comments. 😀 And, of course, if you do tackle the project, I’d love to see the results!
