Harry Potter Beastie

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.

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…
