Hylian Shield and Sword

Post by Soychai »

Started a new project. Hylian Shield and sword from Etsy seller CountryMagicStitch. I would post the link but for some reason it doesn’t work right (any tips would be appreciated).
I tried gridding for the first time and totally botched it lol but at least it’s still workable; could also use some tips for that lol
I’m working on 16ct Aida since that’s one of the few things I can get from my craft stores. I would love to start my full coverage piece but I’m still searching for a good online fabric seller; also open to suggestions. Really want to start that Zelda stained glass piece. But in the mean time... this :link

Loving those colors!!!
Bummer that the link isn't working properly! What's it doing??? I know that sometimes the links display truncated, but oddly they still work.
I can give ZERO tips on gridding. I have a gridding pen, but I only use it to mark where a page ends. Me and straight lines don't agree. I can't even get straight lines with a ruler.
I usually get fabric from 123Stitch :)
Happy stitching!

You have a great start going! I'm looking forward to seeing more!

I haven't tried this site personally, but https://stephsfabbys.com/ has some amazing choices for colored fabrics.

I have tried https://www.silkweaverfabrics.com/ a few times. They have a large range of choices, but they're slow on the shipping times. When I bought the fabric for my Middle Earth map, it took a couple MONTHS for it to even ship, and that was only after I sent a complaint email asking about it. Who knows how long it would have taken if I hadn't sent the email. The point: quality of fabric is good, large range of choices, but the shipping is iffy at best.
