Hi, everyone! Today I’m in the mood to show off, a little. My husband’s a major Metroid fan, having played pretty much every Metroid game out there and even found a Metroid-themed drink, in the past. So when he
joined the dark side got an iPhone, and I offered to cross-stitch him a case, I should probably have expected that he’d want an 8-bit Samus.
I basically copied the Samus Aran cross stitch from Azay’s Video Game CraftHaven. I admit: it’s a lot harder copying a finished piece than working from a pattern, for some reason. Which is to say, yes, anyone looking super closely will notice that I got a pixel flipped, but, uh, just don’t tell my husband, eh? ;)
Here are a couple of other Metroid-themed crafts from the past:

While looking for camera cases, I stumbled upon hine’s shop on Etsy. Not only are the camera camera cases awesomely adorable, but the rotary iPhone cases really caught my eye. Remember old rotary phones?! I do. They were a pain to dial, made a whole bunch of noise, and just the handset was 10x bigger than my phone now… but this hand stitched iPhone case sure makes me slightly nostalgic for those old clunkers! Now I anxiously await more of her Etsy postings so I can have one of my very own :)
