You may all remember how much fun I had making Harry Potter Beastie a couple of months back… So I’m sure you can imagine how happy I was to hear that he was in need of a monster-sized friend to keep him company on his adventures, and to help him take on the Dark Lord Wooldemort!
Hermione was selected to be Harry’s companion, which was absolutely fine with me! I was looking forward to trying out a girl’s version of the Hogwarts uniform – so although Hermione Beastie has the same white shirt, Gryffindor tie and black robes I used for Harry, I’ve given her black tights, a grey skirt (I had some suitably school-uniform-y material in my vast fabric reserves) and a grey knitted sweatervest.
I also thought I’d make her a Time Turner necklace, as featured in “The Prisoner of Azkaban”!
And of course, there was her hair. I was looking forward to recreating Hermione’s famously exuberant hairdo so much that I left finishing it until the very end! Here’s a closeup of the front…
… And the back!
I also had to make sure she had all the essentials to get her through another school year! So of course she got a wand, inspired by the one Human Hermione uses in the movies…
… And Hermione wouldn’t go anywhere without at least one textbook in tow, so I chose this one for Hermione Beastie – just as a little light reading.
Then there was just time to make her a lovely cosy Gryffindor scarf (to prepare for the winter term)…
…And she was ready to go!
I can’t wait to see where she and Harry Beastie go next! You can follow their adventures on Harry’s Instagram – find him at @harrypotterbeastie!

OMGoodness I love the hair, what a wonderful Beastie, I wish her many a happy adventure 🙂
Thanks! From what I can see on Harry’s Instagram, the pair of them were just in Paris… Lucky little monsters!
Paris?? oh wow I wonder if they will send you a postcard
I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on my mailbox, just in case!
Another inspired creation… I don’t know how you do it!
Thank you! My secret weapon is tea… Lots and lots of tea 🙂
Clearly I’m not drinking enough… must up my consumption!
You can never have too much of that delicious leaf juice! I’m also totally hooked on loose leaf tea now thanks to your blog… Less packaging waste AND I can make it to exactly the right strength! Perfect 🙂
Thank you! I wonder if I need to start planning a Ron Beastie to complete the set… 🙂
Sounds like a great idea!!
