I've been looking at cross-stitch as part of my major project. I found these images that I really like. I think that the simpler designs look the best and that using cross-stitch, which is a pretty old craft, with modern designs can have a wonderful effect. I really like how the 70's ad 80's computer game designs like pac man and mario look in cross-stitch. I think that because originally there were less pixels on older computer games, cross-stitch is really effective as the characters were never detailed anyway. They look pretty simple to make - I just hope they don't take too long to make as I need to make quite a few of them to sell at the craft fairs.
