Dragon Age: Inquisition Logo Chart

I attempted to do a little chart of the Dragon Age: Inquisition sigil for my mini wall hanging, but such a complex pattern was really difficult to miniaturize! Here’s the original compared with mine:

To match the other motifs, I had to keep it less than 25 x 25 stitches, which was impossible in cross stitch, so I used a few stitches for the eye, then backstitch for the actual motif. I changed the colours to match the ones used in the PS4 home screen logo, since I thought they fitted the game better – the rifts which are so important to the story are all this colour.

I think I could have done a much better job if I had more space to work with, but it’s recognisable, and that’s what will be important. It will be one amongst many similar logos and icons, so it just needs to remind me of the game and my time spent in the world of Thedas. not necessarily be a perfect replica.

New Chart – Final Fantasy Theatrhythm Curtain Call

The hobbies which I am most passionate about are embroidery, of course, and video games. As a way to combine them, each year I like to stitch up a tiny little logo or image from each game I have finished and make them into a mini patchwork collage, as a sort of scrapbook of all the games i have enjoyed.

So far this year, I’ve had a hard time finding suitable small images to stitch up for some of the games, so I tried my hand at charting a few of my own little motifs. Here’s a sort of micro-sampler based on Final Fantasy Theatrhythm Curtain Call (What a title!)

Theatrhythm Curtain CallI’ve included the crystal, which is a very important plot element in most Final Fantasy games, with some space dyed thread and blending filament for a more glassy, crystalline look; the musical notes, as it is a rhythm game based on the soundtracks of the Final Fantasy series, which are worked in the three colours used as prompts for different types of button presses, and also the series initials in burgundy and gold, which are the colours most heavily featured in the game box art.

Anyway. I spent a couple of hours perfecting this and rather than keep it to myself, I thought I’d share it in case anyone found themselves with a need for such an obscure, niche design!

Help yourself to the PDF here: Theatrhythm Curtain Call PDF – But please don’t pay much attention to the thread colours listed in the key, as I don’t use DMC threads so I had to just take a wild guess at which ones looked kind of sort of similar to the colours I’d used!
