Potty about Harry

Well another month gone, and isn’t time flying, like a ‘Nimbus 2000’.  While thinking about the blog for this month, and with ideas for Halloween witches and wizards whirling around my head, I decided to focus on my new favourite topic, Harry Potter.

Can you believe it’s been twenty years since the release of the first book?!  It’s amazing some have never read these magical books, while others are just discovering them.

Anyway, it’s time to get ‘Sirius’, so here is my pick of the best Harry Potter crafts around.

Whether you are a hard working ‘Hufflepuff’ or a brave ‘Gryffindor’, you will absolutely love this Hogwarts School Crest cross stitch pattern from Little mojo.

This is sure to be a talking point at all your future feasts.

"Or perhaps in Slytherin, you'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means, to achieve their ends."
-The Sorting Hat

Slytherin has to be my favourite house, and what better way to show your true colours than with a crocheted house scarf. These instructions from Liveabout are so easy to follow you won’t even need magic to create your own house scarf…

The website has instructions for all the House scarves. All you need to decide is which house you are in, and whether you want a nice toasty chunky scarf or a lighter double knitting one.

Taking a break between Herbology and Potions classes? Why not try out some old fashioned paper piecing? I absolutely adore this quilt of doom from Sewhooked

There is sure to be some fabric you can use in that stash we all try to forget about and conceal under our invisibility cloak.

If you don't have the appropriate fabric lying around perhaps it’s time for some floopowder,
and a shopping trip to Diagon Alley to visit The Crafty Fox 🐾🦊

And finally, when you have finished all this crafting, why not retire to The Three Broomsticks and try some of Madam Rosmerta’s delicious Butter Beer, or if you’re not feeling sociable try a recipe from Wizarding World and make up a home brew.
