I solemnly swear I am up to no good

I spent my morning sewing up this Harry Potter doll for my mega-fan eight year old. I have plans still for Ron, Hermoine, Draco, and Haggrid. I made up a pattern for Harry (it is a quick job so I hope you’ll forgive that) It includes the pattern pieces, and some written instructions with a few diagrams. I would say that this is not for a beginner, but yet someone who has sewing experience. Harry’s robe is removable, and I think after making one changing him to make the others will be super easy.

I probably forgot a few things too (like the part where you use the black embroidery thread to stitch the line separating each leg so he looks more like a boy with legs then a boy with a trunk) But my hope is that it will be help enough for anyone trying to make one for their own special Harry fan.

You can download the PDFs files here (8 pages total). If you scroll down it will give you a link to download for free, it just takes a few minutes. Please remember that the pattern and finished dolls are meant for personal use only (not to be sold) But feel free to make as many as you’d like for gifts (or maybe even yourself)

    What! A free Harry Potter pattern? Ok, this takes the cake. Your amazing, every time. What will you think up next?

    This is so cool! Is there a piece of felt that is supposed to be sewn to the bottom of the pants? It sounds like there might be one according to step 9 but I don’t see one in the pattern. I am trying to visualize how this goes together and I could believe that there might be a piece for the bottom to give it more stability. I am dying to make this for my girls! Any help would be appreciated. :-)
