Epic Pokemon Generation 1 Cross Stitch Complete by lizardlea Epic Pokemon Generation 1 Cross Stitch Complete by lizardlea
Pattern (which I did NOT create!): [link]
Daily Progress: [link]
Progression video: [link]
Fan page: [link]

This took 130 days with 914 hours of work. (Okay, way less hours than that because I was constantly stopping but that's what got written down.) This means it took me less than one day to do a single Pokemon - I averaged about 6 hours per Pokemon.

Want to commission me? Send me a note and we can discuss! (No, I will not do something this big, it's insane!)
Here's my Etsy shop: [link]

Holy. Crap. You guuuuuys! I got a DD! Thank you so much, it means a lot! I will reply to every comment that I can and thank you all in advance for the favorites! <3

If you like the original Pokemon music and this cross-stitch, you should find some enjoyment out of me in this:

Hey im on sprite stitch where the pattern came from atm I cant download it as my computer is broken ... but could you tell me the stitch dimention like how many stitches wide and how many stitchs down please :) 

Congratulations on this epic piece I dunno if ill have the patience for it but I guess that it would be well worth it ...

So you doing the other generations now ? :p ?????

Well doing the math with Servotron's measurement on 18 count Aida, it'd be 450 down by 256 across aaaaaaaaaand opening the pattern proves that correct! Woo hoo, I can math correctly! :D lol

Thank you! <3 If you like cross-stitching I don't think it'll take an patience at all. I loved every minute of it.

Haha, noooooo. I might do Gen. II some day, but I'm not big on the other generations. I stopped watching the show when Misty left and I've only played up to Silver version so I'm not that familiar with the later Pokemon.

Aw thanks for the reply I appreciate that :) 

I wanna make sure my fabric is big enough in advance lol...

Im in a bit of a toss up as to attempt this then the other gens ...or weather to attempt zelda stain glass window both have many colours and thats a little scary as im on a tight budget 
I also want to try and work on this in secret so my boyfriend will have a really awsome supprise ... hopefully I get it dont by christmas :) -.- ....nothing like the great cross stitch challenge eh :p

Not a problem, glad I could help! I get a lot of questions I can't answer and I always feel bad about that.

Haha, yeah, starting with fabric that's too small would be...soooooo depressing! I was really worried about mine so I started quite close to the top left corner. Made it difficult to do said corner with the hoop I used but the rest was okay.

Ooooh, I've seen the Zelda stain glass window, so nice! <3 I pretty much bought all of the colors before I was even a quarter of the way, don't regret it one bit. It'll be difficult to do it in secret but also get it done in under a year - especially if you have classes or a job. You gotta work on it every chance you have! Aaah, I love cross-stitch challenges~ xD <3

Well it's officially been started as of today ...I've startedvin the bottom left corner with balbasaur :) your right it does go pretty fast im planning on doing all the black first :/...

Quick question ive noticed on the pattern that I have white squares that have a "m" then right next to the white squares with no symbol did you encounter this if so what did you do ? ... did you leave the square blank ? Thanks for encouraging and inspiring me to start this :D

I've seen a lot of people start from the bottom, I always start from the top of all my projects. xD I must be weird or something~ Make sure you're careful if you're only going one color over all of it, one mistake and you could mess it all up! D:

Uuuum...Well it's been almost 2 years since I finished it and I don't remember that at all but if there are any blank ones (and they're clearly supposed to be white) I would make them white. Having random spots with no thread would look really weird to me.
