Details of this totally awesome swap:

What Harry Potter fan wouldn't love to live in the Burrow?  A house filled with magic and love, plus a whole lot of gingers!  Harry, who has grown up in his Aunt Petunia's very tidy, very boring, and very non-magical home, falls in love with the Burrow on his first trip there, after being rescued from Little Winging by Fred, George and Ron.  There he finds an overgrown garden full of real gnomes, stacks of dishes washing themselves in the sink, endless home cooking from Molly Weasley, and rooms stacked one on top of another, seemingly by magic.  For this swap we will be crafting 1 Medium to Large, Harry Potter inspired houseware item for your partner.  The object can be any size in physical dimensions, but should take a minimum of 2-3 hours, (or more!) of crafting time.

Think beyond House Scarves or wands and into the realm of objects to cozy-up your partner's home.  These can be subtle nods to the HP books and movies, or more overtly HP-specific creations.  If you're going for subtle, how about a scrappy rag rug like Molly might make out of worn clothes?  Or a Weasely Clock for your partner to keep track of their family.  If you want to bring a little extra light into your partners home you could create a Sirius Black Quote Lamp.  If your partner's kitchen feels a bit drab, you could make them a set of HP dishcloths to warm it up.  

Other ideas include:
Cross Stitched Wall Art
Crocheted House Unity Afghan
Hogwarts House Coasters
Deathly Hallows Quilt
Tale of the Three Brothers Plaque
HP Felt Coasters
Ravenclaw Baby Quilt
HP Embroidered Cloth Napkins
Philosopher's Stone Reliquary
Owl Post Hoopla
HP Paper Pieced Quilted Wall Hanging
Slug & Jiggers Shrine
HP Love Tea Towels by sheepBlue
Biscuit Cutter Wind Chimes
Jelly Bowl Chandeliers
Patchwork Curtains
Free Motion Embroidery Owl Portrait
Stenciled Owl Pillow
Dumbledore Dream Catcher
Weasley Christmas Tree Skirt

I will allow people to IYP (Invite Your Partner) for this swap if they wish, but it is certainly not required.  If you wish to partner someone specific you must ask them, and then BOTH of you must send a PM expressing that wish.  Please remember that not everyone is able to swap when asked, or might not have the time/funds/desire to participate this round.  If they say no, please accept that 'no' gracefully.  You and your partner should discuss whether you want to stay on the Medium end of the crafting minimum, or if you both want to "go big" and craft something in the realm of a Large.

Please remember that communication is vital to a good swap experience! So in addition to talking with your partner, please keep in touch and let us know how you are doing within the swap thread! Per Craftster rules, you MUST post in the Swap Thread at least once, or risk being dropped from the swap.

I love the Harry Potter swaps but have actually never participated in one, so weird. I think I may have to break my silence and join this one. I'm forever looking for ways to furnish and cozify my new house (well, less new, we bought it a year ago). I think this swap is exactly what I need!!!  Cheesy I love Mrs. Weasley's scrappy colorful style and need some of that for my home   Smiley

I will have to keep an eye on this. I have a couple swaps coming up I'm already committed to, but if I have a spot open before sign ups are over I'll probably jump it. I was thinking it's about time for an hp swap. I'll have to think about possible items I could make.

Just when I think she couldn't possibly come up with a new "Must do!" she goes and invokes the Burrow.

I'm in. I'm in like Dobby in a sock shop!

“Harry witnessed Professor McGonagall walking right past Peeves who was determinedly loosening a crystal chandelier and could have sworn he heard her tell the poltergeist out of the corner of her mouth 'It unscrews the other way.”
