Requested as a gift for an avid reader and super-huge Potter fan, “The Beastie Who Lived” has everything he needs to see him through a new term at Hogwarts!
I started by making him a full school uniform, including hand-stitched robes and a felt Gryffindor tie.
He also has Harry’s distinctive lightning-bolt-shaped scar, and unruly black hair!
And, as this is a project from the early days, his trademark round glasses are embroidered on, as part of his face.
I had lots of fun with the accessories for this guy, though! A little online research allowed me to copy Harry’s wand as it appears in the films…
… And I couldn’t NOT give him a copy of “The Monster Book of Monsters”!
Just be careful there, Harry Potter Beastie!
It’s alright though, as long as you remember to keep the book closed with your belt!
Oh, and one last thing before you head off, Harry Potter Beastie…
… A nice, cosy scarf in Gryffindor colours!
All aboard the Hogwarts Express!
