Professor Layton, a True Gentleman

This is something I have been working on for a while now.  Even though Layton games have been around for a few years, I have only recently discovered them.  I have yet to create some decent fan art so I thought I would start with one of my favorite mediums. This quote came from the second game (The Diabolical Box) and is one of the phrases Layton says when you solve a puzzle.  This pattern I hand-sketched so if enough people like it, I can post the how to and color of the thread I used so you can make your own.  In the true puzzle fashion of Layton, everything in this picture is important, including the puzzle pieces.  Each one can come together to create a 3x3 multicolored square.

Here is a link if you want to make one!: aqua-blade.deviantart.com/art/…

Critiques and comments are always appreciated!

I really like this! The colors match nicely and it is very original and unique. The tecnique is also amazing it's incredible how good the hat and puzzle pieces look! :)

Thank you! This was my first self made design and I've learned a lot since then. I'm currently making this into a pattern to share with everyone so stay tuned!

It looks great! If I were to give any critiques it would be that a little backstitching/outlining for the puzzle pieces and the hat would make it pop just a little bit more. And, of course, washing and ironing would get the wrinkles out of the aida. Other than that, I love it!

Thank you! I considered backstitching but the puzzle pieces looked odd so I chose not to.  Doing it around the hat would have looked awesome though.  For ironing what do you set it to because I was too nervous to do anything but wash it.

Set it for the coolest cotton setting. Iron it with the design facing down (some people will put a hand towel or some such over the fabric to further protect it but I found the last piece I ironed didn't require it). Iron in quick strokes; don't leave the iron on the fabric for too long to avoid burning. Basically use common sense and such. :) I don't doubt you will have any problem!

Thank you very much! I have never ironed a piece before so this is very helpful.

Backstitch the puzzle pieces in the same color they are and it won't look so jarring but will give the puzzle bits some definition. And no problem on the ironing! I actually just ironed my first piece a couple of weeks ago because I was scared to do so as well but I *needed* to iron it so I bit the bullet. LOL!

Thank you so much! I might be posting the how to, but it would take some time since I did it from my sketch.

Diabolical Box is my favorite of the games, second only to Miracle Mask.  It was the first one I ever played!
