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!

Awesome! I didn't think tea leaves at first, but I recognized the grim almost instantly!

Thanks!
I couldn't think of any other stitch that would get the same sort of look the tea leaves have...the French knots are a little big but that couldn't really be helped. At least not by my skills =)

Very cool! I recognized this as soon as I saw it, and I'm not really a hardcore fan, nor had I read the subject line yet.  Smiley

If there was a patch for ATC addiction, I would probably try to decorate it and mail it to someone.

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