I've been meaning to do some more Legend of Zelda embroideries for forever! It's one of my favorite game series, and the Game.Life 3 Contest finally got my butt in gear. :D These embroideries are framed in three inch wooden hoops, so it's easy to hang them up. 

These Legend of Zelda embroideries took about me a couple nights of work, but you could make them go very quickly if you don't satin stitch them!

I've also included some patterns - you can find them on step two!

Can't embroider? Don't have the time? I've also got these embroideries listed in my etsy store, making jiggy!

Step 1: what you'll need:

  • fabric to embroider on - I'm using linen.
  • embroidery hoops if you'd like to frame them - three inches
  • acid free, clear drying craft glue that works on fabric and wood
  • patterns - included on the next step
  • embroidery floss
  • embroidery needles
  • pinking shears
  • a water soluble marking pen
You'll also need to know how to do a backstitch and a satin stitch. Unsure of what those are? Check out my how to embroider instructable.

This is a great beginner project because they're so small. :D
<p>Great tutorial! I don't embroider so i'll probably turn them into cross-stitches.</p>
<p>*sigh* wish I had a gf to make me a pillow case with those on it</p>
<p>OMG thank you so much!</p>
I love your embroidery!
These are amazing and I can't wait to give them a go! :D
