On the 21st February 1986, The Legend of Zelda was released. Today Sprite Stitch celebrates with some of our favourite Zelda cross stitches!
Dottie Torres, aka Gimmeswords, makes wonderful polymer clay stuff including miniatures and jewellery. But it’s her statues that are really awesome – I’ll let you see why!
Above are Bowser Jr with his Clown Car, Deku Link doing his flowercopter thing and FFIX’s Vivi. They are all hand sculpted and painted. These one-of-a-kind statues are all for sale in Dottie’s Etsy shop, but she has photos of more of her work on her website, http://dottietorres.com/ – including this awesome Light World Map from A Link to the Past!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from browsing the many craft and DIY sites on the internet, it’s that just about anything can be upcycled and repurposed into amazing and wonderful things. I never made the connection between vinyl records and clocks until today, when I found this cool item!
This clock, from Vinylastico on Etsy, features Link and Zelda in a pretty Art Nouveau styled design. It’s 12″ (30cm), It’d look awesome on any wall!
The shop also sells tons of other clocks, including ones from games and movies, as well as custom designs!
ABitOfImagination on Etsy makes these fab video game themed light boxes. Here’s a few I picked out to share.
They are all made using perler beads for the designs, and a shadow box with a light fitting. I really like the effect the light has on the perlers. They’d make lovely display pieces, or great little night lights!
