Our favourite climatologist; Mei is now released!
by Kate Anderson on Mar 11, 2019
One of my favourite characters to play - Mei is the 10th available overwatch hero in cross-stitch form!
Mei (and her robot, 'Snowball') is another character that -when stitched on 18ct- will fit into a 3" hoop.
Mei uses a heap of different blue shades to recreate her outfit. There are 21 total colours, but if you're wanting to cut down on the amount used, you can remove some of the backstitching to make a similar-looking version of her clothes and save the floss. One of the floss colours is one of the new DMC étoile colours which is also easy enough to leave out if desired.
She uses a bullion stitch to create the top-knot in her hair and if you're feeling adventurous, you can even add turkey work stitch over the top of where the fur lining cross-stitches are. I did this in my example and it is just the cutest!
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 Mei. I really enjoyed the extra detailing her pattern includes but I know you'll be pleased with the finished result if you choose not to do the extras. ❤️
