Inspired by a beloved mob sprite from classic video games, this pattern has everything. 8bit charm, sad ghosts, puns, glow in the dark. This makes a quick and fun gift for any retro or vintage game loving nerd in your life, who may or may not shy away under the gaze of a mustachioed italian plumber and his retinue of two-dimensional friends. 

My sample stitch is shown stitched on 14ct black aida in a 4" embroidery hoop. I used glow in the dark floss but you could just substitute white if you didn't want to use it or couldn't find it.
