Windwaker Link slippers by restlesswillow Windwaker Link slippers by restlesswillow
A kiriban prize for my 2000th pageview, :iconisilian: =Isilian.

Outer and lining is microfleece (nope, never going to stop loving that stuff) and quilted in between is a comfysoft layer of pure wool batting. These slippers are snuggly. The triforce is felt, hand-appliqued. actually, both slippers are 100% hand-sewn, hand-appliqued, hand-embroidered. There is posh gold braid as edging, and hundreds of tiny puff-paint dots on the sole for grip.

Holy gee! All that is hand sewn? You're amazing! I hand sew everything too but I've never done slippers. Big thumbs up. <3

Tried myself, but didn't manage :(

Used the "Frog II" slipper pattern you can find on the internet. Looks exactly like yours.

Any tips?

Hey, I didn't realise you were going to make slippers that so closely resembled mine, especially since this is an item I make a living from. They look great though - perhaps you could link back to my original design?

I linked back to you on the picture of my first attempt, which almost looks exactly like yours :/ but didn't fit.

But I credited you on these new ones too.

Basically the size... I used a pattern and when I put my foot on the sole part it seems rather ok, but when the slipper is finished, it's like 5-10cm too big... Quite odd... Redid it and it's the same.

Found another pattern and it's ok with that one. Will have to rework it to make it look like Link slippers because these are more like socks...

Thanks for the inspiration though :D

Oh my god. These are amazing. The Links are so acurate and sweet. If you considered selling some of these, I'd totally buy a pair.

Oh my those slippers are awesome :excited:
They look so comfy and they're really original!
I love the way you draw Link.. is he made of the same dots you used for the sole?
You're really good in sewing :D

:iconrestlesswillow:
restlesswillow Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2008
I didn't design the Links! They're the Windwaker style because I thought that would translate better to embroidery (yep, they're both hand-embroidered) than the more realistic style of Ocarina of Time Link (TOO much detail!).

Thanks for popping over to my DA and I'm glad you like my slippers :hug:
