Wedding Gift Embroidery

I love making people gifts, its fun for me and I can make the gift more specific to the giftee. This project is for a wedding that Big Al and I will be going to soon for a couple that loves Harry Potter. I really hope they like it!

The pictures below show the steps I took to create this hoop!

Finished Product!

Sketching to give myself a goal of what I am going for:

I chose these colors because I like how they looked all piled up!

I did the words first and I think it was the hardest part. I probably ended up taking out about half of my stitches, throughout the whole process, and had to backtrack to get it right.

Then on the adding the fun colors!

I love the little starbursts lately because they are easy!

Added white french knots next to bring in a neutral color.
