Navi the Fairy

Saturday, June 14th, 2014

Navi, while being the most annoying fairy ever in Zelda history, is also a very popular character. And by popular I mean she’s been the butt of numerous jokes for a long time now. But that never stops the artists and crafters from portraying her in new ways, such as this lovely stitching by venea1391 on deviantART.

Inspired by the digital artwork by hextupleyoodot, this 13-colour stitching is really striking! venea also added Navi’s well-known phrases around her. Definitely the nicest Navi stitch I’ve seen for a long time!

3D Paper Dioramas of Classic Videogames

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

Dioramas are great, great things. Tiny versions of awesome stuff. And videogame dioramas are the best! Wuppes, from Luxembourg, makes fantastic ones, just with paper!

They all have a real sense of depth and everything really pops out at you. The cardmakers and papercrafters among you will know how this is done, and it’s a really effective technique! Wuppes has made a whole range of different games from various genres and systems, definitely worth a look!

Rupee Coin Purse

PinkPoodle from the forums wanted to make something quick, and when she bought a little aida coin purse at the craft store, she decided to stitch some rupees on it.

Very simple project but also very nice too!

Okay, so this isn’t a craft, but I know we’ll all appreciate this. It’s painful.

Cool Old School Cross Stitched Pillow

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

One of my rules for life is that you can never have too many pillows (or as we call them here in the UK, cushions). Cross stitched ones are the best, because you can find some really great design ideas, like this one!

So many different classic icons, it’s almost like a sampler! I like the part with the Black Mage. :)
