I do not do cross stitch, although when I take the bus I have seen a few people breaking some out and getting a few stitches in between stops. I saw one of those people using a template and wondered if they had templates based on subjects that appeal to me. A quick search showed the answer to be a resounding YES. So many that it is hard to pick a favorite, but if I were to pick this up as a hobby, I would definitely go with video game themes. It feels like pixels are an idea building block for this type of work and the stuff I found online fits perfectly with my line of thinking. Take for instance this Donkey Kong Screen from PixelComfort.
Are you not telling me that wouldn’t look great under a frame on your wall or maybe on a pillow? Well then, get stitching!
