So, back in January, my friend Rachel made the off-handed comment about how the Ant-Man promo poster would be a really simple project to tackle.

It sort of stuck in my mind, but I really didn’t think much about it until the Big, Bad, Burnout came along.
(I’m not *really* burned out of the Light World or my other big projects, but being able to complete a project does wonders for my drive.)
The hardest thing about this project was making the chart. My pattern maker wanted me to use 31 (!) colors to get the shaded effect. An afternoon of wrestling with my program got it down to 6 (ok, 8 with Ant-Man and the backstitching).
I managed to crank this sucker out in two days, but I put in close to 10 hours into it (thanks nighttime shows that I mostly ignore in the favor of cross-stitching, LOL)
So, you wanna make your own movie poster? Of course you do. Here’s what you’ll need:
14 count AIDA cloth (the design is 8″ x 10″)
DMC colors: 310, 817, 3777, 606, 900, 3857, 221, and white
If you’d like to support my ability to provide patterns like the one above, please consider donating to my Ko-Fi page. As always, if you tackle this project, let me know! And until next time, happy crafting!

ah this looks amazing! its a marvel how effective this came out :p my problem is I’m part way through a pokemon sampler that is taking forever, so I am mega burned out on that! perhaps Ant-Man could help.. jenny xx
I’m always bouncing from project to project because if I do get burned out something, I hide it away for months. And yes, this project is rather small but makes the end result makes you feel like you finished this huge craft, LOL
