Patronus and Dementor Silhouette Embroidery
Allrighty, it's time again for some geek craft. This embroidery was made for somebody in a swap that also has a penchant for good ole harry. I found the image on her pinterest which originated from 9gag.com.
I used a technique I have never done before on this which is I ripped up tiny pieces of black and a greyish/green fabric so that they were tiny rags with frayed edges. Then I twisted and bunched them, stitching them on to get the dementor's cloak looking very torn. As you can see from the picture below it made a fascinating raised texture on the embroidery.
I had a lot of fun stitching this and now, I think I might just say - Expecto patronum!
