"Once upon a time, there was a beautiful young girl whose stepmother always made her stay home with the baby. And the baby was a spoiled child, and wanted everything to himself, and the young girl was practically a slave. But what no one knew is that the king of the goblins had fallen in love with the the girl, and he had given her certain powers. So one night, when the baby had be particularly cruel to her, she called on the goblins for help!... 'Say your right words,' the goblins said, 'and we'll take the baby to the castle, and you will be free!' But the girl knew, that the Goblin King would keep the baby in his castle for ever and ever and ever, and turn it into a goblin! And so the girl suffered in silence. Until one day, when she was tired from a day of housework, and she was hurt by the harsh words of her stepmother, and she could no longer stand it..."
1986's Labyrinth is more than a cult movie classic - for many of us, it's still our favourite movie ever - even more than twenty years later. We know every quote, every song lyric. We love the characters we grew up with - Hoggle, Ludo, and Sir Didymus are as much our friends as they are Sarah's.
Featuring Sir Didymus and his faithful steed Ambrosius, Sarah, Toby, Jareth the Goblin King, Hoggle, and Ludo our pattern is our tribute to the movie which still fires our imaginations.
This cross-stitch pattern comes with a full colour chart with floss legends in DMC, JP Coats, and Anchor, although of course all colours can be replaced as per the stitcher's preference.
This pattern is simple and suitable for beginners. We've included our best stitching tips for both beginners and more experienced stitchers and if you're completely new to the craft there's a good how-to video courtesy of Yarn Tree at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mr_LfGr1v0E
