My partner from the "Because We Miss Harry Potter" Swap, ShardaeDobby, was really good at asking fun HP questions to help us get to know each other's HP interests. (This was in addition to the swap questionnaire!) Based on her answers, I thought she would like something from Honeydukes! So I made this:

"Every Flavour" drawstring pouch:



Open it up:



What's inside:



Let's go shopping:


(action shot with DD before sending out)

The pouch has a double drawstring, so it stays shut nicely. The drawstrings are turquoise-color hemp twine with plastic beads. I painted "Every Flavour" and the little stars on the finished pouch with a couple of coats of yellow flexible fabric paint. When that was dry, I painted over and around the letters with gold glitter flexible fabric paint to give it a magical effect.

The shopping tote is made from jelly bean novelty fabric: the Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans inside the pouch! The tote's straps are the same pink fabric as the pouch. The tote has French seams, so it should be sturdy, and a gusset at the bottom, so it's pretty roomy.

Tote with pouch:



This was lots of fun to make!

My friend wanted to know if you knew Legilimency because anyone who knows me knows that my favorite candy is jelly beans.

You've inspired the HP crafter in me and I'm itching for the next HP swap so I can put it to work. Amazing stuff!!!
