Jolly Ol’ St. Koopa

‘Twas the night before Christmas,
And all through Peach’s house,
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even a Mouse(r)

Er, ok, I’ll leave the poetry to someone else.

So, if you’ve been on Twitter, you’ve seen me working on this Bowser, er, King Koopa, cross-stitch. I was looking at my new cup when the idea came to me.

I’ve got two variations, one with the Bullet Bills and another with winged Koopas. I haven’t had a chance to test the pattern out yet so I don’t have a set color list yet. Fortunately, the colors are pretty obvious so I don’t think you could go wrong with just eye-balling the whole thing.

Also, this pattern is really, REALLY, wide. On a 14-count, it’s just over 14 inches (and under 4 inches tall), so just be sure to plan accordingly. Also, those *super neat* gold lines between the characters is just a reference, LOL. Please, do not use them as guides — just more like suggestions if you want to drape strings between each bullet/koopa.

On a personal note, you may have noticed that on the sidebar to the left, I have a link to a campaign that I’ve started. It’s to raise money to buy sewing machines for people in South Asia. Having a sewing machine allows for people with little or no education to make some money, helping their families. I figured, hey, since I’m blessed to have an opportunity to stitch things for fun, I’d like to be able to try to raise money for a much more nobler cause. Of course, there is absolutely no pressure to donate, but if you’d like to give a few dollars to an awesome cause, that would be amazing too. (Or just spreading the word would be really, REALLY helpful as well.)

Donate for sewing machines ❤

Anyway, if you do decide to tackle this chart (or any others), let me know! I love to see what y’all have been creating! And as always, happy crafting! ❤
