Feeling Flashy

It started with the promise of Flarrow. It ended, well, with one half of the crossover magic.

(Sorry Oliver.)

I was pretty set on making the Flarrow chart (in two days!) but as I started working on it, I realized something…I like the Flash bolt of awesomeness so much and I’m scared that the arrowhead would have taken away from that.

(Again, sorry Oliver.)

But, if any of you awesome folks want to tackle the whole project, please, do it. And show me that it was a mistake to leave out the -rrow part of the Flarrow magic.

(Sorry again Oliver.)

What you’ll need:

5″ hoop (I used a 4″ hoop and you can see how close to the edge I got)
14 count aida cloth
The color key (If you’re only making the Bolt, you’ll need DMC colors 3371, 975, 300, 834, 3829, and 3820)
The chart! (If you’re only doing the Bolt, just ignore all of the background arrow and large green circle.)

This took me about 4-5 hours. (I think. I so lose track of time, LOL) So, if you do tackle the entire project, you’re probably looking at 6-8 hours.

I make crafts. I geek out. Sometimes, I geek out about making crafts.

  1. Hi, I just wanted to say that I stitched the whole thing and it amazing! I love it so much and it was such a pleasure to do. Thank you for sharing this! I look forward to stitching some of your other arrow charts πŸ˜€

    1. Yay! I always love to hear about when people make something with the charts I post. Out of curiosity, did you make the Flarrow chart or just the Flash symbol?

  2. Hi I did flarrow but want to turn it into a 3 panel series and do flash and arrow separately.
    Thanks for the chart it was a great stitch (and thanks Rachel Donnelly for steering me to the blog and charts πŸ™‚ )

    1. That’s awesome! I always love hearing when people have made something with the charts. And that sounds like a great idea! Anything with more Arrow and Flash is great! πŸ˜€
