Harry Potter Doll

I have lots and lots of projects and tutorials to show you but life got a little crazy (but fun) around here. So in the meantime how about I show you one of my favorite projects about one of my favorite things??

Harry Potter!!

Now as I explain the rest it's important for you to hum the theme song in your mind. You know, for effect. (dum duh da dum da dah dum...)

For Christmas I designed this doll for my niece Macy. Her mommy is a super fan of Potter. I slacked for 6 months on sending it so little Macy came to Alabama all the way from Canada to claim it this weekend. (Okay so it wasn't the only reason, but it was a bonus) Macy loved it but I think her mommy loved it a little more. :)

How I Did It:

I hand drew the pieces. Besides the glasses and the hair it's basically a bunch of rectangles pieced together. All parts of the doll are made with fabric and pieces were appliqu├ęd together and machine stitched for security. For his scar I used a red permanent marker. I stuffed the whole thing with fluff and whip stitched his side together.

Try it out! It's a fun little doll to make. Plus, everyone needs a little more Potter in their lives right!?!

  1. I have something horrible to admit: I haven't seen or read any of the Harry Potters. Is that just awful or what? BUT, I think that doll is adorable! Nice job.

  6. That is absolutely the best doll I have ever seen! (Yes, I'm a total HP nerd) Best of all, it looks so simple to piece together. Way to go!
