I would love to know how it holds up when you do use it! What type of yarn did you use? I never thought of a seat cover. So brilliant you are!

I used Red Heart yarn in Periwinkle, white black and TLC Heathers yarn in Blue Moon for the middle part between where his robes are open and outline the arms.

The beauty of the seat cover is that it's only for the back. You don't sit on it, (which is good because I have that heated seat feature and that wouldn't be good to block up. plus sitting on it would probably drag or pull it down.

I suppose encasing it in a plastic would probably have been better for durability. But no one will be climbing all over it or anything.

Someone asked about a pattern. All I did was take this icon



and upload it to micro revolt's graphmaker here...

and then crocheted it in tunisian stitch with a size J cabled crochet hook.

Someone named Tab suggested in my blog that I go to a drive-thru at an ice cream place and order something for Snape......"Um, Snape says he's like a Peanut Buster Parfait with a cherry on top. No lid! And don't forget the spork!" LOL!!!!

That is so cool! I've been kind of obsessing about Potter Puppet Pals lately, I keep watching the sketches way too much.  Cheesy It'll look fantastic as a bag.
