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!
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.
Close up photos of the finished product! It looks so much better under natural light!
