I’m just now getting around to posting some things I made around the holidays. I wanted to share this Niffler Ornament I made for @beholder_folklore.
Even though it’s small, this pattern was one of the more difficult ones I’ve ever done! There were half stitches, fractional stitches, confetti-like areas but man-oh-man, it was worth it! And I was proud of myself for doing it on evenweave.
And a close up of the awesomeness!
For the back I used a kinda shimmery, gold snowflake patterned cotton. (Nifflers love shiny!)
And if you’re curious of what it looks like before backstitching:
Backstitching makes all the difference, doesn’t it?!
If you’re looking for the pattern or for any other cute patterns of Harry Potter-y things in jars, here you go: https://www.etsy.com/listing/833938755/magic-stitch-fantastic-beasts-cross?ref=yr_purchases
Thanks for looking!
Uber precious. And congrats in the evenweave!
Wow! Just goes to show how important the backstitch is! This turned out so good!
I’ll just dying over this! So adorable! Love all the golden shimmery choices you made.
Wow, impressive, precise stitching!
I really love how you got a shaded, painted look with stitching…it is really so nicely done…and yes, backstitching is amazing…
I don’t even know what a niffler is, but boy is this a great piece! All those special stitches, etc. give it a very painterly quality.
It looks soooo beautiful! I do think the backstitch really makes it pop.
I had no idea either but it reminded me instantly of this Dutch TV character:
It does look like that character!
@Immaculata @TheMistressT A Niffler is a creature from Harry Potter. It’s very attracted to shiny things which is why this one is clutching some wee little gold coins.
Very nice and the half stitches really do make a world of difference in the finished piece even if they are annoying to do
Trying to recover enough from the cuteness to appreciate the glorious shading effects, but it’s a struggle. An adorable, adorable struggle.
So. Many. Grays. Totally worth it though! Thank you for the kind words!
That’s super cute, love those keen diamondy eyes.
