‘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.)
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! ❤
