Snape Cross Stitch
I have also received some glow-in-the-dark yarn from e-bay which I am using to make a Voldemort doll. He's lookin' really cool!
With no finished projects this week, I thought I'd share with you my Snape cross stitch I made a couple years ago.
I actually made five of these.
I sent the first one to Alan Rickman, but never heard back on it. Don't know if he even received it. Bummer. I'll never send him another thing.
Anyway, I also made 3 for some Snape friends who placed orders with me.
One I made for myself and framed. It's really awesome and almost life-like.
I ordered the pattern from e-bay. It was from an autographed photo. (I guess it's the closest I'll ever get to getting an autograph from Alan.
Anyway, here's the photo I took of the first one I sent to him...

It takes about two months to make one. I've sort of burned myself out on making them. But I'm glad I did.
Since I'm using this post for cross stitched items, I'll also show you my checkbook cover I made.
I bought a do-it-yourself morning glory checkbook kit and just put my own design on the front and back. I have a Harry Potter cross stitch pattern book which has many images you can choose to do.
This shows the entire checkbook cover's front and back.
Here's one side.
The other side.
I took these pictures about a year ago. It has since been used every day. Needless to say it's showing a lot of wear. But I love it. It took a while for my hubby to get used to it. But he's a real sport and doesn't mind my weird obsession too much. LOL!!
