It started with this:
It ended with this:
The wordplay off of “Xbox Live” was just too tempting for someone like me to pass up, so off I went to create a pattern. It’s fairly straightforward and quick; I had given myself the weekend to finish the project. Even if you are new to cross-stitching, you should be able to finish this in a day or two.
Want to make your own? Of course you do.
What you’ll need:
6″ embroidery hoop
DMC colors white and 703 (or you can use any bright green color you have)
Ikea plants to set on either side (optional)
Also, if you really want to wow your friends, you could also use glow-in-the-dark thread (DMC E940) instead of white which is what I would have done if it still wasn’t packed away.
If you do decide to tackle this, I’d love to know! If you have any questions about this project or cross-stitching in general, please feel free to reach out to me on Twitter or Instagram. As always, happy crafting!💚
