A good friend of mine, whom is a huge Harry Potter fan, welcomed her son Stryder last month. As a baby gift I wanted to make her something with a Harry Potter theme for the baby room.
I made Harry, Hermione, Ron, Snape, a snitch, Hedwig with Stryder's invitation to Hogwarts and the crests for all 4 houses with felt, glue, stuffing and thread. I purchased an already mobile on clearance and took it apart covering the hoops with a new fabric and replacing the ribbons to sew the figures onto. The only thing I was unable to do was find a music box that I could program with the Harry Potter theme song.
The project took quite a bit of time but was an great way to create a personalized gift on a budget.
Jameson had fun playing with the little figures. He used them as shadow puppets and when he found out they weren't for him he asked me to make one for him. So we introduced Spiderman to the Harry Potter gang :)
