Animagus Rita Skeeter - Let's Go to Hogwarts Week
And now Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and one of the more annoying characters, Rita Skeeter. She's such a lying tricky dweeb. I'm glad Hermione caught her in her animagus form at the end!
Apparently, Rita Skeeter takes the form of a brilliant green Rose Chafer beetle per the film. In the book, the illustration is a black beetle wearing glasses. I decided on a blue and green beetle wearing silvery glasses with some curly blonde antennae/hair. Since she is a beetle, she needed a little shiny on her back.
I doodled the embroidery pattern. She is less than three inches long so I stitched her in 3 strands of embroidery floss.
