Title: Minecraft Date Completed: May 2015 Design: Lord Libidan Count: 18 Canvas: Black Colours: 31 Video Game: Minecraft
In all the shows I’ve been to, by far the most requested game is Minecraft, and whilst I’ve had at least a few ideas for a while, I never stitched any. So here’s to change! Its loosely based on a shirt design, but with my own flair, and additions, shading and a few secrets.
Title: Minecraft Watch Date Completed: March 2014 Design: Lord Libidan Video Game: Minecraft
Whilst working on my custom handmade lightsaber I was playing Minecraft, and I just couldn’t get the idea of making a prop for it out of my head. As time went on, this project started forming a bit better, and thanks to reusing some pain from the lightsaber I created this minecraft watch.
Its a working replica prop of the minecraft watch which moves one whole spin every day. In order to get it to work I had to slow down a watch (so it only span once every 24 hours), and then replaced the hour hand with a full dial. I covered this dial in a slightly curvier version of the minecraft dial (taken from the ingame resources), and pained over the glass front to replicate the style of the game one.
I’m a big fan of watches, and always love seeing them in games, and so I had intended to also make a cross stitch version of the minecraft watch (I even looked at how to make this a working watch), but I FINALLY got around to playing the Last Of Us, and instead created a Last Of Us cross stitch watch.
