52 Quilts: Number 9 – Harry Potter Inspired Hazel Hedgehog

Quilt 9 52

February brought another Birthday for one of the members in my 2016 Birthday Fun Swap. Like last month’s, I made a mini quilt for the recipient. This month’s birthday girl is a HUGE Harry Potter fan, so her package was entirely HP-inspired. She mentioned she’d really like a critter quilt from one of Elizabeth Hartman’s patterns. I used the Hazel Hedgehog pattern and Harry Potter-ized it a little.

This pattern is so cute and fun. I have seen hundreds of Hazels on instagram in every color scheme and they are just so cute. I just did one block and used Gryffindor stripes for the body part to make it look like Harry. I couldn’t find actual striped fabric, so I made my own. Yep, the stripes in the “scarf” and the binding are actually alternating 1” strips. It worked perfectly for the look but it’s kind of bulky due to all the seams.

I added the glasses and iconic scar from heat-transfer vinyl, which I don’t think would hold up to repeated washing, but worked fine for a mini quilt. For the back I used some Harry Potter fabric I picked up a Joann fabrics last summer, assuming that I would need it for something sometime.

I also made a cross-body bag using Chambray and another Harry Potter fabric I picked last summer. I rounded out the package with a Magical Creatures coloring book, a fleece Gryffindor scarf and a couple other small items, not pictured.

The bag is Dog Under My Desk’s Two Zip Hipster pattern. I love this pattern. I think I have made it 5-6 times at least and it’s one of my favorite, most versatile bags.
