I recently made this for the Winter Semester of the HP Craftalong. I was just so happy with it that I wanted to post it here as well.
This is my first project post since I joined Craftster over a year ago. =)
I wanted to recreate what Harry sees in his teacup in the third book/movie. Reference image http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/File:Tea_leaves_1.jpg Obviously I took some artistic license with it but that's what makes it mine.
I used off-white felt, two colors of embroidery floss (dark gray and black) and a 4" embroidery hoop. The edge is colored with a gold paint pen. The entire thing is done in French knots which I learned for this project and had a lot of practice with too!
Hope you enjoy. Q&C welcome!
