When I was a junior in high school, I was obsessed with the movie Kamikaze Girls. I especially loved how the main character's hobby was embroidery, and how delicate and pretty it was. I mentioned it to my grandma, and that summer she taught me how to do counted cross stitch.
It's been over 4 years since the taught me, but this year I started to get back into it. Here are some projects I just finished.
This design is based on a design by Super Orange, and I actually made this for the owner! I converted his design into one I could cross stitch. My favorite detail is the gold metallic thread on the outline. I have the official hat with this design embroidered on it, and it also has a gold metallic outline on it. I'm a sucker for sparkles, hehe.

I patterned this design myself! It's the Lumina Star Wand from Creamy Mami, which I made for my friend Laura. I love the colors of it, and pixel-like versions of magical girl things are just too cute!

I have some more patterns I've made, and I can't wait to get started on them! I'm considering opening up a shop to sell what I make. What crafts do you like to do? Any other cross stitchers out there?
