What I did last week

Here's what I did last week that kept me away to that huge to-do list I posted: I took part on a Harry Potter craft swap;

So now I can't hide it from you anymore... I'm a HP fanatic. It's obsesive. And with Halloween coming, who wouldn't want to bring the not so sleeping Witch out ?

I think the only thing I bought for the whole thing are the d rings on the bag.
I'm acutally really pround of it. It's my first big project with a sewing machine!
I was able to change the thread and everything, this time! lol.
I SO didn't know how it worked but my mom showed me the basic and Off I go!

I drawn a sketch of what I wanted it to look like, draw the cuts I'd need and went on.
I was surprised how fast I was able to make it! The inside is doubled with pink and purple felt.
I wanted to double it with a more magical fabric (desesperatly looking for unicorns!) but none anywhere. Exepts overpriced fabric on eBay....
Must add: The black fabric are from maternity pants I never worn. (someone gave me a size 16! -I'm a size 5)

I painted to Hogwarts crest on a white fabric and handstiched it.

I've also done a butterbeer necklace.
(to keep away nargols)

A Timeturner.
(out of keyrings)

A "portable" pensive pincousin.
(for an old votive holder)

A Luna plush.
(complete with spectacles and Quibbler)

A Severus plush.
(complete with potions kit/charms)

Monster books of Monsters earrings
(only 1 teady bear was destroyed during the making process)

Slytherin House Crest socks for her daugther.
(mine thought they taste really good...)

A handmade Ravenclaw bow.
(out of those long ruban keychains)

Dumbledore quote t-shirt for her daugther.
(It does not do to dwell on dreams, and forget to live)

there is also a life size snitch (like the ones I sell in my etsy), a "expecto patronum" onesie and dark mark slytherin colors armwarmers. Every items as their personal tags (with their gallion prices) exept for clothing (I'm sending back what she had land me, cause it shrinked on itself the first time I tried to put them on! Don't you hate when people put anti-stealing spells on thing and forget about them!?) And not tags on the bag cause I made it (without no magic!) in muggle class... There is also a calligraphy quill-written letter :)

I want to appologize to all muggles not liking Harry Potter.

But I really do!!!

Have a magical day!

and don't forget to look out that party:

and this one:

and I've just found another one:


  1. Isn't it funny how we apologize for our "likings"?

    I'm always doing that for my NON-Halloween celebrating friends and my NON-Nightmare Before Christmas friends. They just don't get it!

    I'm a HUGE fan of both!!!! So you go Girl! You and your Harry Potter-ing!!!!

  2. Plus, with Nightmare Before Christmas, I can get a double dose from October through December!!!! It's just too much fun!!!

  3. Awesome! I am amazed that is your first sewing machine project, you did a gorgeous job!! I think you will find it gets easier each time. Can't wait to see what you make next!

    Take care,

  4. Oh my goodness, you are too creative! LOVE IT! The time turner is fabulous and I love the plush Luna! Kudos!
