The boyfriend loves his games and for our anniversary I thought what better a time than to put my recent love for stitching cartoons to use. I googled some pictures of the retro video game super Mario (incidentally one of the games I like) and put together a design.
Here’s some pictures:
Me favourite bits are the cloud and the plant! The proportions are probably well off but where would the fun and homemade style be if it were perfect?
I wrote something very cheesy in it like ‘you won my heart years ago’. It made him laugh and it makes me smile. It’s still up on our bookcase 1 month later.
It was my birthday on Friday and he actually decides to reciprocate and stitch me a card for once:
I think he got the pattern off Google images and unfortunately he wouldn’t show me so I can’t give credit. Please let me know if you know whose it is.
Don’t tell him but I’m a bit annoyed at how well it turned out, it’s his first (and last) go at making one. OK so some of the stitching changes direction but you can barely tell. I think he can stick to his programming thank you very much!
Has anyone else’s partner had a go at your favourite hobby? Did you secretly hate them as well?
