A couple of years ago I decided I wanted to try out bead embroidery. After lots of pondering of what to make, how big should it be, should I design it myself…. I fell upon Majora’s Mask. I have always loved the colors and patterns within the Legend of Zelda item. So I bought some interfacing from the fabric store and headed to the Spring to peruse the Beads and Needs seed beads.
Funny enough, the day I went down there, a bead embroidery class was being taught. So here I was with my pattern, drawn on my interfacing, trying to find the perfectly bright colors for this slight creepy mask. Needless to say, some thought I was getting in over my head with my project. However, I’m of the belief that I’ll make it work and make it up as I go along. I find that this makes life a bit more exciting!
This project did take me quite awhile. But I really enjoyed the entire process. I think the hardest part was backing it and finishing the piece. My dear mask now hangs in my office.
On a side note, I have almost completed the Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask video game! One one more temple boss to go 😀
