DIY Harry Potter Throw Pillow

2 Materials
2 Hours

Harry Potter’s birthday is on July 31st and that is enough of a reason for me to go all out magical crazy making things like this DIY Harry Potter throw pillow for a bed, a couch or a comfy chair. The DIY Harry Potter throw pillow is especially soft because it is stuffed with a Home Elegance Luxury Pillow from Fairfield World. It feels like down but is really made with a siliconized micro denier gel fiber. The pillow is a simple sewing project that is great for beginners. This post is sponsored by Fairfield World but the ideas and opinions are my own. Once you read the directions, you will want to make a Harry Potter pillow!!!

To make the Harry Potter throw pillow you will need the following supplies and materials.

Start by cutting a piece of cashmere tan felt 15 x 12 inches. Then cut out a scar, hair and glasses from the black felt. To create the scarf and add length to the pillow, cut 7 red and yellow rectangles measuring 3 x 3 inches. Cut out two ears if desired.

Sew the rectangles together to form the scarf.

Pin and sew the black pieces to the cashmere tan.

Sew the scarf to the large piece of cashmere tan felt, leaving the extra hanging off the sides.

Use black embroidery floss to stitch eyes and a mouth for the Harry Potter pillow.

Cut a brown piece of felt that measures 15 x 15 inches and pin it back to back with your Harry Potter face, pinning the ears in between the two layers.

Sew the pillow around three sides including the sides with the ears. Insert the Home Elegance Luxury pillow and sew the fourth side closed. Harry Potter crafts and projects are so much fun! So are Harry Potter books, movies, snacks and games!
