11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Link: Now with Baby Photos! on: August 02, 2009 05:47:06 PM
The pattern is now available for download on my website here: http://www.happyseamstress.com/knitting/baby-link-outfit-free-pattern. Happy knitting!

A friend of mine & her husband are both huge fans of Zelda (the Nintendo video game series), so for their upcoming baby shower for their first baby I knit this baby-sized Link costume.

The whole outfit:



I made a baby bottle holder to look like Link's quiver of arrows.
This is what it looks like form the front:


This is the baby bottle quiver from the back:


Brown Link-style booties:


I added leather soles to the bottoms to make them look more medieval-ey:


I also made a green baby blanket adorned with the Triforce, appliqued in felt:


I'm going to "wrap" the whole thing in this wooden chest that I stained dark brown to look like the treasure chest from the game:


And finally, this image of Link was my inspiration:




Thanks a bunch for looking, and let me know what you think!

That's awesome! I too have had problems using the usual duct-tape dressform method, and this looks fantastic! I might just give it a try

What a fantastic idea! I'll have to keep that one in mind when I finally have kids!

The red shoes were basically a virtue of necessity--it's damn-near impossible to find white dress shoes in the winter, so we all decided to wear red. It worked out great!

Oh yeah, we had DDR at the wedding! And I got a 300 combo on difficult mode in my dress! WOO!

I made this shirt for mother's day over a year ago, and she wore it for the first time to my wedding last month. Looks like she likes it!
Thanks for looking.

I made this is dress in about three weeks for my wedding that I planned in about a month!! Literally blood, sweat & tears went into the making of this dress (did you know that the best thing to clean your  blood out of a wedding dress is your own spit? That's what I found out while pinning it together, ha ha !). The corset was altered from a strapless gown pattern, I forget which one but you could pretty much use any one.

The veil was super-easy to make, just a length of off-white tulle gathered just off the centre and attached to a store-bought tiara. I ironed some hot-fix crystals along the bottom, but you probably won't be able to see them  in the photos.

I also made a knit jersey shrug with hot-fix Swarovski crystals along the cuffs, literally two days before the wedding because they were forecasting a major snowstorm (it REALLY came in handy, especially during those cruel outdoor shots!).

All in all, I think it turned out quite nice, and the little group of silk roses on the back was a good way to hide a mistake I made on the corset.

Hope you like it & thanks for viewing!

They're not too hard to please when you have a cone full of deer feed in your hand!  Wink
