Fresh baked pi embroidery hoop

Hey! I finished this embroidery piece for the Harry Potter Craft-a-long and I'm really happy with it! ^_^

 I used part of a fat quarter of pink fabric from Spotlight and black embroidery thread.

I aimed for a kind of sketchy look which works really well for me because my embroidery skills are not that great! ~_^

I'm especially happy with how this bit of text turned out! Yay for improvement of skills!

The image I used is from here and I added the text in Illustrator using "Velocette" and "Gabriola"  ^_^

The hoop was from an op-shop and for some reason it had writing on it so I covered the embroidery hoop in washi tape before I began stitching. I really love the look! ^_^
