Hi, everybody Smiley

I got so obsessed with A Very Potter Musical some time ago and I knew I had to cross-stitch something from that.

Since I'm a very proud Ravenclaw and I'm not Cho Chang and that line is really funny, here's my piece:



I did the pattern using Photoshop and got the cursive letters from http://www.stitchpoint.com/eng/tool/alph/chart_alphabet_madrid.php

It took me about a week to finish, but just because I'm pretty lazy. I could have finished it in two days

My next piece is going to be a line from The Coolest Girl for my BFF

Hope you like Smiley

Looks awesome! I love AVPM as well! You've inspired me to start using their amazing quotes!

Could you explain how you made the pattern please? I've only just gotten Photoshop and don't have a clue about how i'd use it to write a pattern! Thanks  Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I created a 5x5 pixels pattern with a 1px border on only one side. Filled a new file with it and started "stitching" with a 4px brush. You can make it bigger, with a 10x10px pattern (I think it's better)

Here's a screencap of the process: http://www.twitpic.com/4rnyun

and here's a .pat file with two patterns (the one I used for this project and a bigger one): http://www.4shared.com/file/uumJj9Pi/cross_stitch.html

That's absolutely fantastic. Now I'm inspired to stitch a "racist sister" sampler!
