After some crazy mammoth stitching sessions, lots of knots in my shoulders and neck – this amazing Harry Potter sampler cushion is doneski!
I don’t usually like to toot my own horn, but how amazing does it look?!
Avid Harry Potter fans can find the pattern here. I absolutely adore the amount of detail in this pattern (I mean, check out that marauders map!) but by goly, this was a hard one to stitch, especially in the crazy time frame that I had.
I bordered the pattern in a 2.5″ teal fabric, and completed the cushion with eggplant binding. This is the first time I’ve made a cross stitch into a cushion and I found it really easy, just like stitching a normal cotton cushion. You can check out Tiny Modernist’s post if you need some help sewing a cross stitch cushion.
I have a whole heap of friends who are Harry Potter fans, and after adding this to Crosstitchery’s facebook page, I’ve received another 3 orders for the same pattern! I’ll also be stitching this adorable pattern for a new baby, due in November.
These commissions will all be started when Mr A & I get back from Japan – we leave in just 2 days! :)
