I made these for my partner in the Deathly Hallows part 2 Swap.

I embroidered her 3 favourite spells on one side, and used a Ravenclaw inspired fabric on the back.

This was my first go at embroidering words and I did it freehand (couldn't mark the black fabric beforehand), that's why they are a bit off, eeep  Undecided

How to use Accio spell bag : Say the spell out loud (e.g. Accio Drink) and throw the bean bag at a fellow muggle who will then get a drink for you....works in theory Tongue





The NOX embroidery was done with sparkly blue thread (mega pain in the bum to stitch with)

My husband was playing with them as juggling bags, so I guess they could be used for that as well  Wink

They are very cute and the lettering doesn't show up as "off" at all. I would have tried tailors chalk to mark the black fabric, the piece I use will brush off with a firm brush afterwards.

Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Thanks for the tip Smiley all I had was a blue washable marker that wouldn't show up, so next time I will get some chalk Cheesy
