rufusdampfer from our forums crocheted this excellent Legend of Zelda title screen blanket!

Zelda Blanket Close up

rufus said, “I’ve worked on this crochet project steadily for around 2 hours a day for the past 4 months. Netflix sometimes demands some distraction so you don’t feel like you’re completely wasting your time! It has been really fun to see it forming row by row like it’s been loading for months! I did this using 1 sc per 1 pixel making it 240 rows of 256. If anyone wants to know more details about how to do this I would be happy to help. I found it quite rewarding.”

I think it’s very cool, and would love one of my own!

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!

This one is made with Friendlyfelt, some straps, clips and a zip. Jen didn’t write a tutorial for the bag, but she describes the process well enough that anyone could give it a try!

Zelda Vinyl Record Clock

Friday, January 8th, 2016

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!

Zelda Vinyl Clock

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!

VGameCraft on Etsy made this pretty sweet Zelda stained glass style lamp:

The stained glass part is made of acrylic, and the base is made of pine plywood. Etched into the base are Hylian words that say:

Zelda Lightforce

And the force of the golden light, embodied in Hyrule’s princess, shone forth upon the lands.”

And it lights up! VGameCraft has a video on Youtube that shows it when lit so be sure to check that out!
