Harry Potter Dolls Set

I love everything about this set of hand-painted Harry, Ron and Hermoine dolls by dangercatdolls on Etsy – especially the tiny hand-pained Gryffindor stripes on their ties. You can also request other characters from the books if you have another favorite… very cool!

I also liked the description:

Dolls are made of wood and stand approximately 3.5 inches tall. They are lovingly hand painted and sealed in acrylic. While they are considerably sturdy little fellows (and ladies), they are not toys and should not be given to children, regardless of how much they love 5000 page novels.

Harry Potter Inspired Wooden Pendants

Harry Potter Wooden PendantsI just can’t get enough of Harry Potter.  I came into the series when Chamber of Secrets came out, and have been obsessed with everything Potter ever since.  As a dude, I tend not to wear much jewelry, but a simple pendant is something I can be expected to wear.  That’s why I was so excited when I saw these Harry Potter Inspired Wooden Pendants by BookishCharm on Etsy.

BookishCharm has quite a few pendants, and I couldn’t settle on just one, so I chose my four favorites out of what she has to offer.

Don’t forget to check out BookishCharm on Etsy to see more wonderful jewelry.

It’s Harry Potter week on GeekCrafts!  Don’t miss it!

“Always” Harry Potter Embroidery Hoop


“Expecto Patronum!’
From the tip of his wand shot a silver doe: She landed on the office floor, bounded once across the office, and soared out of the window. Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.
‘After all this time?’

The final Harry Potter movie is finally here! I’m sad because the series is ending, but excited to finally see the movie, and all the cool stuff that crafters have been making in anticipation! PirateColey made this gorgeous embroidery of Snape’s Patronus based on a tattoo that she found. She used pearly thread to make it magical, and I think it worked. I love the two tones and her satin stitch is really impressive. It really looks like a patronus!
