I have plans for a set of 5 beaded Zelda coasters. This is the first one I did: the evil Ganon! I plan on doing a Zelda one, a Link one, One with the fairy, and one with the Zelda logo. So far I like the set!! I probably won't get around to finishing them anytime soon because money is a fickle little thing... So, I wanted to post what I had already!

The next step is to figure out how I want to mount it so that it will be an effective coaster. I was thinking that I would at least stick a thin layer of cork on the back. But beyond that I'm not sure. I keep thinking of trying to do a little wooden border, almost like framing it. But I'm not quite sure how I would do that...





It's about 4x4 inches and made on a homemade loom (thatnks to my lovely boyfriend!) using Delica beads. Yay!

Be sure to post pictures of the other ones if you end up doing them! I really love Zelda too!  I bet the fairy one would be awesome!

That's so cool, I love the Zelda games (old school ones anyways). Looking forward to seeing the rest of them.

As far as a coaster goes, maybe you could mount your beadwork to the cork like you said, and then make a wooden frame to fit around it, then cut some thick clear plastic (or glass if you really wanted) to secure in the frame. Easier said than done, I know, but it just popped into my head.

Thank you! I tried my best! And to answer your question, I did design the pattern, but I used a piece of the official Zelda artwork as my template. So I basically took the picture, put it behind a grid, and filled it in as best I could. I found that making the outline first was the easiest way to go. Here is a link to my pattern in case anyone is interested in using it: http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk140/rixies/ganon-2.png If anyone does do anything with it, I would really love to see the final product, whatever it may be!

Hehe, we found a website with instructions on how to make your own wooden loom. What they had us use were combs! Like the ones you comb your hair with! I thought that was so clever. Here's a link to the instructions: http://mdc.mo.gov/teacher/highered/crafts/craft26.htm

Yeah, that's what I would really like to be able to do! But the problem is figuring out how to do that...and then I would have to figure out how to do it so it looked good! Maybe the craft store have little mini frames - or maybe they can cut (or I can cut) a thin frame into pieces (mwahahaha!). I really like your idea though!

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

Maybe I should do the fairy next ^_^ I decided to do fairy in a human form rather than ball-of-light form though. Ball-of-light is cute and all, but not too entertaining to look at.

I also managed to make a basic coaster "frame" over the weekend, so it's coming together!
