I am absolutely in love with the Marauders map. I actually don't know why, but out of all Harry Potter related crafts, I've crafted things related to the Marauders Map the most.

And since I want to learn how to crochet, I needed a needle case for my crochet hooks. So instead of focusing on how to crochet something I made a needle roll. The fact it was based on the Marauder's Map has everything to do with my excitement for the Harry Potter Swap that is now open for entry. It's my first swap and all.

But without further ado, here are the somewhat crappy photo's..

This is the front.

Without the string.

Folded open.

I used a white cotton and dyed it with Tea and Coffee and then drew the Marauder's Map on by hand with a fabric marker.
It is quite small, so in comparison to the real Map there are somethings missing, but I still like it!

I know what you mean.  I love the map.  It's so cool.  I haven't done any crafts for it though.  I figure I'll spend time on it and then it'll look stupid.
You did a really good job.  It looks fantastic.

For a moment I totally thought you had found the best fabric ever, but then I read that you'd done that yourself  Shocked It's looks so professional. I love that you made it for something practical. Keep up the Potter crafts!

What an amazing job!  And so creative.  I was just at FAO Schwartz and yours definitely looks like the one they were selling in the case!  Awesome!
