Getting crafty

I spent several hours today both in the aisles of Michael's craft store - wandering around and looking for just the right color threads and some sort of manual on how to use it - and stitching with a little needle and said colored threads in front of the television.

I have a pretty comon laptop bag, and I wanted to differentiate it from any other bags that I may see on the streets of the world.

I thought to myselef, "Pixel art is just like cross stitching." And with that, it was TO THE INTERNET! To find a good template for stitching something I like. I picked out Boo from SNES mario. He's so cuuute.

Here are the pics of my adventure. I will definately be doing more of this if the opportunity ever arises. It's so fun and relatively easy.

For the record. I hate Boo.
He's smiles in your face only to stab you in the back.

I remember doing cross stitching at school when I was very very young. Cool idea, though. Are you tempted to do anything more ambitious? One of your own characters maybe?
