X-Stitch Fanart- A New Trainer by missy-tannenbaum X-Stitch Fanart- A New Trainer by missy-tannenbaum
Hello! With Pokemon Black and White having been released over the weekend in Japan, I thought it would be fun to cross stitch the new, but sadly nameless, Pokemon trainer girl! I got the sprite for this project from The Spriters' Resource (www.spritersresource.com), and was determined enough to finish it in three days, and don't even think that was detrimental to the final project. Of all of the Pokemon trainers I've stitched, this girl also has the most remarkably detailed shoes. For the last game, Lyra/Kotone had decent enough red shoes, and Dawn had okay boots, I suppose, but the black and hot pink sneakers are very cool.

This was stitched on 14-count perforated plastic canvas with (mostly) DMC floss!

Is this White, one of the main character from Pokémon Black & White?

Thank you very much! It's always fun to make Pokemon sprites, and this was one of my favorites to work on, too. ^^

Really like it!

Quick question actually. It looks like you did it on some form of grid. How would you move it over onto something else, such as an article of clothing?

Oh,thank you! This piece specifically can't be transferred to clothing, since I stitched her on plastic to be a desk decoration, but in the case of most cross stitching, there are two ways to do it. The easier way is to stitch on gridded fabric called Aida cloth, trim it down into a patch, secure the edges, and then just sew it onto the clothes like a patch from a store. If you want it directly on the fabric, though, they sell this stuff called waste cloth that you attach to your clothing, stitch on just like you would anything else, and then pull out thread by thread once your stitching is complete, leaving the image and not the waste fabric itself. It's a bit of a pain, but the effect is really good, especially for stuff like tote bags.

Oh wow I would never have the patience for that, or be able to do it with remotely close enough precision haha

Well, judging by your stuff, maybe it's less a matter of the patience itself than it's an issue what you have patience for. I can't imagine painting like you do, while I'll sit and stitch for hours on end, so maybe it's just personal preference.

Very true, everyone has their own thing. I've just always admired stitch work, but never been able to sew well...

I wish I could do it, haha
