Captain America Stands Tall by saber4734 Captain America Stands Tall by saber4734
This is the framed version of my Captain America cross-stitch.

Matting in red, white, and blue. 50 stars around the matting depict america's flag.
The plate at the bottom reads Captain America "The Star-Spangled Avenger"

Framing was done by Allens' Creations here in clemson. You can view their work at this [link]

I made the pattern myself. I do not give out these patterns. I prefer they remain one of a kind.

This is AMAZING. Wonderful job! The framing is excellent! I'm not American, but i really appreciate the patriotism of the whole piece!

That's what the framing was meant to imply. Thanks for looking.

Its nice :) Whats the stich count?
I have done some bigger jobs, but I never could do them so fast :)
Maybe it just means I had too much to do.. or I was just too lazy :)

The pattern's diameter is 221x166. I am unsure of the actual number of stitches.

I'd def. be proud of it if I were you, it looks great. And I imagine it requires a lot of patience.

Oh yeah a lot of patience. I must have thrown it in a corner on numerous occassions because I was tired of working on it.

The matts start off with red, which you can probably not see very well in the picture. The white on top of that. Then blue on top of that and cut out of the blue matt is 50 stars that show the white matt beneath. That was my idea. :D

You don't happen to sell these by any chance? I would pay top $$

I do sell my cross-stitch. However, I have never sold one of the characters before. They take so long to stitch they tend to have sentimental value. Not to mention they have all been framed professionally. What exactly did you have in mind by "top $$"?

Suiname Featured By Owner May 16, 2009
Approximately how long does it take you to make one? I guess I would want to know that before I agreed on a price.

Something of that size can be done in 2 to 3 months depending on my schedule and my dedication. I am currently unemployed but I pray I will not be for much longer. Who are you wanting done?

I really like the Wolverine cross stitch, if that's possible. What do you think is a fair price? I don't need it framed, I think I'm probably going to get it put on my bag.

saber4734 Featured By Owner May 17, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
These patterns are done using an 18" hoop. They are big. With the detail and the size it's going to get into 3 digits. I can't exactly quote a price because I have never sold one of this size.

And I don't agree with putting it on a bag or making it into a pillow or something. Because the thread could possibly come undone if not handled well.

Suiname Featured By Owner May 17, 2009
interesting. So you think I shouldn't put it on something else? Alright, well maybe I will have someone frame it then. I'm willing to pay 3 digits if it's low 3 digits. Let me know what you think.

saber4734 Featured By Owner May 17, 2009  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yes I think framing is the best way to preserve the piece. $200 is probably as low as i'd go. The only way I could go lower is to stitch one and calculate the hours put into it. That's something i've never done. I just go about stitching and never keep time. And I guess you can understand I can't just stitch one quickly to find that out. :)

I have no experience with textiles, so I'm gonna have to convert simply to "Holy crap, this looks fantastic!" mode.

You have some true skills (not to mention patience). The shading is incredible, and could easily be mistaken for a drawing.

Well thank you. I wouldn't say I have patience, more like nothing better to do. Trust me pieces this big get thrown in the corner more than once before they get finished.

You know I actually had one person mistake the Captain America for a drawing.

If you check my journal you will find a pattern of Wolverine i'm working on. The link will take you to an unfinished picture but enough is done to get the feel of what it will look like.

Yeah and that frame job cost me $280. You can afford frame jobs like that when you still live at home and pay no rent. I need to take an updated picture since that one was taken before I noticed the two stars in the lower left corner that are slightly out of alignment. The frame shop fixed it for free though.
