Happiness is cross stitching blog

Harry Potter cross stitch and owl fabric

Hi everyone, I finished the Harry Potter cross stitch into a project bag set.

I talked about this Harry Potter cross stitch in a previous post here  you can find the pattern for Harry at this link  . This is a gift for someone, I am pretty sure I am safe to post this because I don’t think the recipient reads my blog!
I stitched the bag and pouch using cotton owl fabric with a coffee coloured canvas fabric, both are interfaced and lined and the project bag has a little pocket on the inside. I only added the black canvas strap because I did not have a coffee colour, however, I thought it complimented Harry so I went with it. 
The cross stitch took quite a few evenings to complete but it was a fun stitch.

Edited: I have since made another bag using a Harry Potter themed cross stitch pattern, you can see my Hermione Granger bag at this post here.

This is the reverse side
Inside pocket
Etsy shop update 
I made this little Tilda notions pouch and scissor bag set 
I also added another Paris bag, I only made two of these, this is the last one and then I will be making other bags and purses from different fabrics. There is also a matching notions and scissor pouch available.
Until next time, happy stitching! 

Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    I have fallen in love with this set of bags!! Do you know who the designer of this owl fabric is? Harry Potter is so cute – he is as wise as the owls are. You amaze me with each and every post.
