I made the most geekiest present for my friend's 32nd birthday. See, he loves Zelda. So, what a better present than a cross stitch proclaiming his love for it?
If you would like to make one like this, the pattern I made is below. It is on a small 3" hoop. I used black canvas and white, red, and light pink thread for the cross stitches and black for the back stitch in the split heart. Note that I also used half stitches, three quarter stitches, and some sort of half stitch I made up for the split heart. You can find more about the stitches here.
Happy cross stitching!
