11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Zelda Round 5 Gallery on: April 29, 2013 07:29:38 AM
I'm so glad you like everything Beth!! I really try hard to craft things according to the survey thingies, which can be hard when your main craft is knitting. So all your kind words are very appreciated!! Smiley

I have to say that swaps really help to not only expand my creative thinking (Deku shower hooks are probably one of my most creative ideas to date, lol) but expand my crafting repertoire as well Smiley

This swap was a lot of fun! The shower hooks were actually fairly simple to make if you have basic crochet knowledge, the hardest part (and it's not really hard, just more PITA) is sewing on each individual leaf and the mouth. Before you close off, you make sure the mouth and eyes and stuffing are in, and the you crochet the last round of decreases around the shower hook. It is a little fiddly to crochet around the hook, but the final product is so worth it Wink

As for the apron, I used a basic apron pattern that was double sided. It was the second thing I have ever sewn! For the stencil I just found some gear pictures and sized them on the computer, than traced them to freezer paper. For the one on the right, I actually used an image of a Midna cosplay, isolated the pattern, sized it correctly and traced it on freezer paper. I really need to get opaque white paint... there are like 4 layers of white paint on there... lol

This was just tons of fun and I think I may make Deku scrub shower hooks for my bathroom, lol

Wow... so amazing! As a Zelda fan, I'm very impressed! So jealous of your swap partner (I suspect it's for the most awesome mama24boyz Wink

I admit I frequent the walkthroughs  Embarrassed

The Armos guy totally killed me last night and I didn't want to start back at my save point. Argh!! I'll try again tonight.  Wink

I don't think there is shame in using walkthroughs, honestly, and here's why. If you get stuck and can't proceed than you are not able to enjoy future parts of the game. As Zelda fans, we want to see everything and all that is possible with the games. So walkthroughs are available to us to make sure we can experience everything about the games! Smiley

I'm going to have to look for that!!  And I never heard of New Yoshi Island either??  Will have to look into that!!  The thing is, I never liked the original pixelated Zelda games.  Is LTTP like that?  The new one looks KIND of like that but not really.  I think I'll get it regardless, the boys will probably like it.    OH!!!!  I'm stuck in Skyward Sword in the Desert....I'm in the temple, just stuck.  I did all the rooms I think, where do I go now?

When I get stuck, I usually check out walkthroughs to make sure I haven't missed anything. I know that's probably considered cheating, but whatever. I want to see more of the game!!!!

Bunnie Boo has me convinced that I'll need to get a 3DS, lol. I'm going to hold out and see if they come out with a Zelda version though. My regular DS is the gold triforce version and I would love to have the matching set Wink

YAY!!!!  You guys are awesome!!!

Why, thank you kindly Wink

Link to the Past was for the SNES. I had good times playing that at my grandma's house. At the time, I remember thinking how the graphics were SO AWESOME compared to LoZ and Link's Adventure. LOL my how times change Wink

Sent!! I freakin' can't wait until the gallery!!! Cheesy

Also Link to the Past 2?! http://www.wired.com/gamelife/2013/04/zelda-a-link-to-the-past-2/ (Did I miss something in the thread? I don't remember people talking about it)

I don't have a 3DS. But because this is not just a remake, I may actually have to buy a 3DS just for a Zelda game. Yes, I'm one of those. Link to the Past is definitely one of my top 3 favorite Zelda games.

Going to my craft on today! I'm almost done, so unless anything catastrophic happens, I should be golden for sendouts tomorrow. Smiley
