I managed to power ahead with heroes and decided to treat you all - I've released both Baptiste and Zarya today!
Both of these are easy to stitch up and both use their own gorgeous splashes of colour (orange & teal and pink & light blue? Yes please - what a nice change of pace!) and both have fabulous hair. If I do say so myself.
Both -as usual with my Overwatch heroes- are stitched on 18ct Aida fabric and fit perfectly into a 3" hoop, similar to all my "smaller" heroes.
Baptiste uses 16 colours and a couple are only used very sparingly. I suggest if you're looking to save a bit of cash and you have a bit of a library of colours, you double check if you can replace any of the small handful of colours used a few times. But the choice is yours- I of course recommend you go with what the pattern suggests!
Zarya comes in at 15 colours and uses all to a decent amount. I wouldn't recommend replacing any of them as it could be quite obvious and detract from how her "normal" hero skin would look.
Don't forget to tag your works in progress or completed pieces on social media using the hashtag #tlkow. I would love to see how you are going or what you've done!
But most of all; I hope you enjoy stitching Baptiste and/or Zarya. They have amazing hair and all ❤️️
