Though this was not my first Harry Potter craft (having already made paper wands and a Mad-eye Moody eye), it was however an original design. Rather than continue to shamelessly steal ideas from The Leaky Cauldron, I came up with some of my own, the result being these three magical characters pictured here (Ron, Harry and Hermione). These dolls were made out of various colours of felt and sewn together by hand using embroidery floss. Harry’s glasses as well as the wands each character is holding were made using a thread of thin metal.
I think it went quite well for a first attempt at creating original felties. The best part of course was to see Mrs. A’s excitement as she opened the present. She adores them and now they sit on the same bookcase as her many volumes of H.P.
