Wow. Just wow.
What a cool walking dead cross stitch.
I’ve done more than my fair share of cross-stitches in my time, and none of them have ever been considered a “quick” craft. They take hours upon hours of stringing together thread into tiny x’s to fool the eye into thinking you’re seeing a finished picture when you’re done.
Of course I have (as of right now) never finished a pattern that I’ve designed, so I think that adds to the coolness involved with making this cross stitch. Well done sir ninja.. well done.
Nerd crafting is insanely popular right now, but even the craftiest of nerds rarely takes on cross-stitch. This craft, which involves making tiny Xs with colored threads on a canvas to create pictures, is a very old craft that does not have much popularity in modern times. When I think of cross-stitch, I generally think of ugly floral patterns turned into throw pillows, or cheesy sayings like “Bless This Mess” framed and hung on the wall.
The Cross-Stitch Ninja has forever changed my ideas about cross-stitch with her rendering of an entire page from one of the early issues of The Walking Dead comic book.
