Title: Harry Potter Golden Snitch
Date Completed: November 2018
Design: Lord Libidan
Canvas: Ecru & Plastic
Pop Culture: Harry Potter
I’ve done a lot of 3D cross stitches in the past, and honestly, I’m probably still best known for my series of Transforming robot cross stitches, even though I first designed the first one almost 8 years ago. However when stitching up my free sashiko inspired biscornu I realized that all my 3D stitches had one thing in common; they were all on plastic canvas.
This really isn’t that surprising considering that’s what it’s used for, but I had some across the work of robinsdesign and her 3D work. I knew her mostly for dolls, but she also created a series of planets, which end up like completed globes. The way these were constructed were frankly amazing, but I figured it would be too hard to make the sphere smaller; until she came out with a 2.5-inch moon:
In case you were wondering, this size interested me, as the Harry Potter golden snitch was 2 inches. I decided I’d have a go at replicating the style robinsdesign used to create a tiny golden snitch. I actually thought this was going to fail, and so decided I would only stitch the main part to test the idea. In fact, I even started stitching my Portal gun cross stitch whilst I was washing and ironing it, I had that much faith, but it came out better than I thought! It isn’t perfect, however, I decided to add on some wings and it was complete!
