Prize Preview #3
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Cross Stitch
Desert Bus 2017 is only two weeks away, and what better way to celebrate that than with a prize preview! Remember to get those donor accounts made or updated so you can have a chance at winning/bidding on prizes like this…
Gaze out over scenic Hyrule with an embroidered version of the game’s iconic cover image. Ignore the Bokoblins that are definitely not sneaking up behind you and the benign-looking Guardian buried just off to the side. You’re fine. Probably. …You’ve still got an unbroken sword or two in your inventory though, right? This piece measures roughly 13×13 inches. It is made up of 31320 stitches in 76 different colours, and took roughly 260 hours to sew, along with another 40-50 hours to design the pattern and select the colours. It has been custom framed in conservation masterpiece acrylic, which is lightweight and shatterproof, has UV protection, reduces reflections, and doesn’t attract dust. It’s probably more durable than that weapon you just picked up.
This prize has been donated to Desert Bus by Sarah Overall. Sarah has been a crafter since her early teens and a geek since she learned how to read, so it was only a matter of time until she found a way to combine the two. She mostly works with embroidery, but has also learned crochet (inspired by other people’s amazing Desert Bus donations) and likes to dabble in other crafts. Sarah also works as an editor, where she gets to be a geek about the English language. This is her eighth year contributing to the craft-along and her tenth watching Desert Bus.
