These are amazing! Each one has such a different little personality to it.

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 =)

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!

Eiseldora was kind enough to post teaser pics of the lovely things she sent me. Here (finally) is everything unwrapped.

I think with a Hobbit swap, it is only appropriate to start with the food. Eiseldora sent me a package with 6 Hobbit inspired food mixes from tea cake (which was a big hit at my weekly D&D group) to muffins to cram. She also included fruit leather (my favorite), trail mix, pumpkin puree (for one of the mixes), and two kinds of jam.

A cookbook with all the mix instructions.

Plates, napkins and small utensils.

Dwarven Treasure and Handspun & Dyed Yarn.

Like I said before, the yarn is awesome.

Maps. I love maps.

(Sorry its turned the wrong way. I fixed it, but it in Photobucket but somewhere along the way, that info was lost.)

and lastly, posters, posters and more posters. I had to lay them out on my living room floor to get them all in one picture.

Sorry it took so long to post, but that you SO much Eiseldora. You sent an awesome package!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination - Tasseomancy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Harry's Tea Cup
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) This was made completely on a whim when I saw the assignments for this semester of the craftalong. I wanted to recreate what Harry sees in his tea cup in the third book/movie. I used felt, two colors of embroidery floss, and a gold paint pen. It is done completely in French knots which I learned specifically for this piece.

I hope I filled all this out right as this is my first craftalong post.

Debating signing up for this one. I can't yet think of 5/10 things to craft that wouldn't drive me absolutely insane make me bored...

I make simple beaded earrings...and crochet lots of little things.

Every single thing I took from Eiseldora's package was something I could happily say "If this was the only thing in the box, I would still be happy" about. That's when you know it was a good package. I will be posting pics soon. The yarn looks great in pics, but its even nicer in person. I really have to work to find a project worthy of it.

Harry Potter swaps are always the most fun.

From pottermouth:

A Hogwarts crest papercut inside an ornament. And a Lupin clothespin with the most adorable little details.

From hgddm:

Feather/quill ornaments that can also be slipped onto the end of a pen/pencil.

From Thimbles 71:

The trio and two of my favorite characters as gingerbread people. Snape's expression makes me chuckle.

The worst picture of the cutest little tree ornament.
She also sent me a couple teas and some of my favorite hot cocoa mix.

Thank you so much to all three of my wonderful partners! I hope to have the chance to craft for all of you again - you guys really made this a fantastic and rewarding swap.

This looks awesome! The colors you attained are so vibrant I thought you added dye or soemthing before I read your post. For the first time ever, I am inspired to try my hand at paper making.
Are there a lot of supplies involved? Do you have a tute you used or something?
