21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Link from Zelda Hat and Mittens set - featured in NINTENDO POWER!!! on: June 05, 2011 01:51:36 PM
I made this hat and mittens set for my partner in the Zelda Swap 2 and I got contacted by someone from Nintendo Power who wanted to feature it in the magazine. I was soooooo excited, but the problem was that he wanted high resolution pictures, and I only had taken one picture of the set before sending it. So I decided to redo a new set and take pictures of it. And it's really nice, because now I have my own set!

So here it is, in all it's NES glory!

Me with the set. I'm happy because it's one of the pictures that made it into the magazine!

Here is a concept picture with the original Zelda and Zelda 2 on the NES boxes.

Here is a detailed picture of the little Links on the hat.

And a last one, just for fun!

Now I'm thinking of doing similar sets, but a pink one with simplified Zeldas and a black one with simplified Ganondorfs.

UPDATE: Here is the grid chart I used as a base for the hat and mittens! I don't have the exact pattern though...
22  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Harry Potter cross-stitches on: May 04, 2011 01:48:39 PM
For the OTHPT2 swap, I made two cross-stitches for my partner, who are interchangeable in the frame I sent her. One is the Hufflepuff crest and the other one is a Bellatrix rocks sign (as you can guess, her house is Hufflepuff and her favorite character is Bellatrix).

I made a backing because I wanted the back to look good and because the cross-stitches were a little bit hard to get out of the frame. The little vertical pieces of ribbons are tabs that make the interchanging easier.

And a last picture of the Bellatrix sign, because I love it Tongue
23  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Updated - My first venture into quilting - 2 baby quilts and a bag! on: April 09, 2011 08:17:18 AM
Update! I've decided to add some padding in my friend's baby quilt, and I like it a lot better that way! I just removed the satin binding completely, added the padding, made the quilt lines and re-sew the binding.

Close-up on the padding:

I've just started quilting because I was searching for a nice, quick baby shower gift for a friend (and a little bit more original than knitting and crocheting, which is what I normally do Tongue)

Before padding! Here is my first quilt. The border looks a little bit wonky, but I'm still satisfied with it!

And with a shot of the backing, it's simple fleece. I didn't do any batting, but the fleece makes it warm... a little...

Here is my second quilt, for my nephew. I don't like the colours as much as the first, but the border and backing look way better!

With the blue backing. Again, no batting.

And here is a project bag I made for myself. It said to put interfacing, and I didn't have any, so I didn't... bad idea. It looks ok when it's full, but not when it's empty.

And a close-up of the nice fabrics I used. LOVE the one with the birdies.

As I said, I didn't use batting in my quilts, but I will for the next one. I have yet another friend who is pregnant (6 baby showers in the last year!), and I have picked some nice green and brown fabrics to make her a quilt. And I bought batting. Can't wait to start, I'm addicted to quiting now!

25  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Skull Kid from Zelda painting, my best work yet! on: March 02, 2011 07:31:52 AM
This is the painting I've done that I'm the most proud of!

It's a 30 inches X30 inches pixel art painting of the Skull Kid, from the game Zelda Majora's Mask. I took the original pixel art on Deviant Art, made by Grynz.

It took forever to do, because I made a grid on the canvas with a pencil and then, I made a number code for the colour and I wrote in every little square (1 cmX1cm) what colour went there. Yes, I did that for the whole canvas and yes, I know that I'm crazy Tongue After that, I had a "paint by number" canvas, so I filled all the squares with the appropriate colours.

Here it is! the colours on the pictures are not as cool as in real, but it's not too too bad. The backgroung is deep blue even if it looks black here. You can kinda see it on the next picture.

Here it is before it was varnished and before I made the black band on the side.

Here you can see it on my wall, it fits perfectly in my living room!

I loved doing it, but the preparation is a bitch, I want to do more, but I'll try to find another way...

What do you think?

UPDATE: Here a couple of pixel shots so you can see what it looks like from closer.

27  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Triforce pillow on: February 04, 2011 05:50:10 PM
This is a Triforce pillow I made for the Zelda Swap 2.

It's my first ever attempt at quilting and I like the way it turned out, even with all the little mistakes.

The Triforce side:

The squares side. As you can see, the squares don't all line up properly, but I gained really good tricks on what not to do next time!

I'm now a fan of quilting! My next thing is a baby blanket!
28  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Video games paintings! on: February 02, 2011 05:50:32 PM
My boyfriend and I are big video games fan so we're always trying to integrate it in our arts/crafts. Here is a the paintings I made in the last couple of months (I really don't paint a lot!)

This is a trio of pixel paintings I made for the OTT Zelda thing from Zelda:Minish Cap sprites. They are painted on small, 4X5 canvas.

This is another trio of pixel paintings I made, this time for the Zelda Swap 2, from A Link to the Past sprites. Now I just need to make a set for myself!

This one has actually been made by my boyfriend. It's a Metal King Slime from the games Dragon Quest.

This is a 8X10 pixel painting of Link. I wish I hadn't made the backgroung like I did, I don't really like it...

I have a plan for a Skull Kid pixel painting, but it's way bigger (75X75 pixels) so I have to find the motivation to throw myself into it!
29  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Makar couch and other stuffies on: February 01, 2011 03:38:10 PM
These are stuffies I made, mainly for swaps:

The Makar couch (my favorite!) for the Weird Stuffie Swap. I modified a pattern from Knitting Mochimochi to look like Makar from Zelda Wind Waker.

This is a Link amigurumi I made as an extra for the Weird Stuffie Swap from a pattern on Craftster from nerdigurumi.

This is a little skeleton from the book Creepy Cute Crochet.

What do you think?
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Link hat and mittens and cable scarf on: February 01, 2011 03:28:10 PM
Here are knitted thing I made recently for swaps.

Simplified Zelda hat and mittens I made for the Zelda Swap. I made the pattern myself, and I was inspired by the "Hanging with my gnomies" hat that won the Advanced Knitting Accesories challenge:

This is the cable scarf for the scarf swap.

I love swaps!

Modification: Here is the grid chart I created for the simplified Link:
