Portal Cross Stitch

Some of my readers may know that I have been trying to design some of my own patterns. I did a Mario and Yoshi one, posted here and I have also designed another pattern from a game called Portal. This is a very fun game, however unfortunately I have yet to manage to finish it as the first person makes me feel sick :s
Anyway there are little picture instructions throughout the game and many of them are quite fun. So I decided to design and stitch one of them and here is the result:

Portal Block Dispenser - Pulltheotherthread
This one means that a block can be dispensed to help solve the puzzle in that level of the game. This is quite a small piece and is all black as you can see.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this as it is only the second chart I have designed. I would especially love to hear what people who have played the game think :)


  1. I'd never heard of Portal so the children and I just gave it a go and had fun getting to level 15 quite quickly. Goodness knows how much further we have to progress before coming across this symbol!!
    I admire people who design their own charts (and Portal is cute) but where I'm concerned that's what other people do - I'll just have the fun of stitching them!!! :)

  2. Hello!

    I've never heard of Portal but I admire anyone who can design their own charts.
    Happy weekend (:

  3. I too, have never heard of the game. But, I think it looks great.


  4. What, no pink heart?! :D

    I love playing Portal (especially Portal 2 - 2 player mode) but I am so awful at hand-eye coordination!

    Your pattern looks great and I hope you eventually enjoy your cake. :3

  5. It looks just like it!! I played the game back in the day at a friend's house since we didn't have a tv or anything computery.

  6. I've never heard of Portal either. Lol. Wish I could design and admire anyone who can :)

  7. Whilst searching the www for simple borders I came across this:
    Thought you might like to take a look in case you wanted to stitch more Portal symbols. :)


Would love to read any comments you would like to leave. Thanks for brightening my day :)
