Today I bring you all not one, but THREE free cross stitch patterns! (Well four, sort of.)
This is something I had been meaning to do for quite a while, actually. I don't know how many of you watched Anime in the 90s, but this was a big one for me. I absolutely loved the series. At some point in 1995 a SNES game based on the series was released, and fan-translated ROMs were to be found, so I played that too and loved it.
If you know anything about magical girl anime, it is that there is always lengthy transformation sequences reused every episode. And this show is no different. xD
But the pixelated versions of these transformations from the SNES game were *perfect* for stitching, and I simply had to. So some 20+ years ago or so, I sat down and picked out colors for Fuu, my favorite of the trio. I always intended to do all three, but never quite got around to it.
A few weeks ago I was going through my closet and found this pillow I had made alllll those years ago, and just *had* to share it with you.
So after comparing colors to my pillow, I put together a pattern based on what I had used back then. It even has blends because I didn't have enough greens back in the day! And I cleverly stitched it on Navy so I wouldn't have to fill in the background, lol.
But I didn't stop there. I redid the same pattern with the colors I would have chosen today. So I've included that for you as well. Then finally put together patterns for Hikaru and Umi as well.
Those haven't been stitched yet, obviously. But maybe this will get me to stitch them finally. Or at least restuff the Fuu pillow. Look how flat it's gotten! Whoops~!
