CHALLENGE: Fabulous Fandom Mash-Up!

Welcome to a new Fandom In Stitches Challenge and the first for 2013 - Fabulous Fandom Mashup!

The rules are simple:

  1. Choose any pattern found in the Fandom In Stitches archives. Archive pages are linked directly under the title at the top of any FiS page. (Animated/Children, Comics/Games, etc.)
  2. Use that pattern and create a project for a fandom other than the fandom the original pattern was intended for. For example, use a Disney Princess pattern to create a Harry Potter project. Fun, right?!
  3. Post a photo of your project to the Fandom In Stitches flickr group by Friday, March 1 Monday, March 4.
  4. Enter as many projects as you like, remembering that each project must be made from a Fandom In Stitches pattern and reflect a different fandom than originally intended by the designer.
  5. All projects must be PG-13 or less.
  6. Please tag your photos "fabulous fandom mashup" to make them easier for us to find in the flickr group.
  7. Include in the photo description what fandom the pattern came from and what fandom your project represents.
  8. Photos of each project will be posted to Fandom In Stitches on Saturday, March 2 Tuesday, March 5. Vote for your favorite via poll on the Fandom In Stitches Facebook group* March 2 - 4, March 5 - 7
  9. The winning project will be announced Tuesday, March 5 Friday, March 8 and will receive a free Fandom In Stitches t-shirt, as seen on our Zazzle shop (below)!

*please note that Facebook group memberships will be closed for during voting.

You can also help spread the word by sharing on your own blog or website:

Any questions?


  1. *sings* I already know what I'm dooooiiiinnng!

    What a FUN, perfect challenge. :D

  2. Sounds like fun! I already have a few patterns printed out!
    Question on the voting... do we vote, or only the members of your facebook page (I'm new to facebook, so kind of in the dark.)

    1. On the members of the Fandom In Stitches Facebook group will be able to vote. We had some issues with the poll we used for our last challenge and we want to make sure it's as fair as possible. As long as you join the group now (the link is in the post), you will be able to vote when the time comes. :)

  3. i have an idea in mind, are we allowed to slightly modify the patterns or should we keep strictly to as they are?

    1. Slightly modified is okay as long as we can tell what the original pattern was.

    2. Thanks :) i have something in particular in mind

  4. Late question: Looks like my embroidery is not going to be finished on deadline. I knew it was too ambitious! (I just have to finish the books on the shelves. But that's embroidering all the books at Spinner's End. Can you imagine??) Question: Cat suggested that I enter my Doctor #4 mugrug that I made for Jewells, since I used a Twilight pattern. But I made it awhile ago; can I still enter it? Thanks!

    1. Yes, absolutely you can enter it! And oh my goodness, that does sound like a lot of books to embroider!

    2. Thank you! It's tagged and ready to go. :)
