Mario Through The Ages Cross Stitch (with link to free pattern)

There’s a friendly little Geekery content going on over the Google+ community Crafters Corner Cafe. My plate was way too full to make something new so it seemed like a darn good time to add one my favorite fan art projects to the blog.


There are over 10K little crosses in this project and I swear, 9K of them are the tan color! I finished this one up sometime late 2011. I’ve had it framed and it now hangs in the most awkward place to try to take a picture in my whole house!


The pattern is available as a free download from Sprite Stitch user Servotron. It is a bit awkward to find – look for the file Mario Ages.pdf at the bottom of the first post in the linked forum. You can download and edit the .sth pattern if you have the appropriate software.

Sometimes it is fun to back and revisit some of these older projects. I do kind of wish I had any idea how many hours it took!



  1. Very cool! I just finished up a 3×3 cross stitch with the background filled in. It’s daunting to imagine doing it on this scale but looks amazing.

  2. This is so awesome!! Feel free to mail it to me 😉 I really need to bust out my floss and stitch something!

  3. Such a great cross stitch pattern! I love how it’s framed.

  4. Whoa!! That is a lot of cross-stitch. What a fun stitchery. I have a cross-stitch project that I started probably 17 years ago, but I don’t want to admit that I will never work on it. Well done, Susan, for finishing yours!! 🙂
