Harry Potter costumes


Happy October!

Our Fairy of the month is the pumpkin fairy and patterns to recreate his costume are in my etsy shop here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jenwrenne

I’ve been waiting and waiting for October to bring you Harry, Ron and Hermione at HOGWARTS!  I bought Robby for the sole purpose of making him Ron for these scenes (oh, and because he has freckles and red hair like me 🙂

Here they are in their potions class (click to enlarge)

After which they need to relax and swap some chocolate frog cards.  (Please excuse the horrible way I tied their ties!)

Their robes and books are a free pattern here: https://jenwrenne.wordpress.com/2012/07/26/hogwarts-spellbooks-for-dolls-tutorial/
and there is also a link to a really neat marauder’s map.
The newspaper, chocolate frog box and cards were found in a google image search and shrunk to doll size and the vials/bottles were found in the scrapbooking section of the craft store.
The shirt and tie patterns are free here:  hogwarts shirt and tie pattern
and I used the boy fairy pants pattern lengthened and closed in front with velcro.  The jeans pattern would work too.  If you scroll waaay down, you can see an adaptation of this pattern to make a western shirt.

I’ve been doing some other Fall sewing for the dolls (it gets cold early up here!) and recently drafted a few new patterns.
With the introduction of more patterns, I realize it’s getting hard to find them!  You can still email me to order them OR I have set up an etsy store where you can buy them with just a few clicks and they will be emailed to you within 24 hours (usually sooner).  http://www.etsy.com/shop/jenwrenne

New patterns I have just listed are overalls (suggested by Pauline N. who gets hers for FREE!)

and  Fall jackets.  

Funny story…I had the picture for the red jacket in my head and as I drafted and sewed it I couldn’t think where I might have gotten the idea. When I Skyped my 14 year old niece and showed it to her she said, “That’s my Anthropologie jacket!” and ran to get it and show me.  Sure enough, they are very similar, although hers is plaid and thigh length.  But if it’s trendy enough for her to approve, you can be confident your dolls will be at the height of fashion in theirs. Also included is a variation for a bomber-style jacket and a ruffled skirt.  

These are seen here paired with “too-cute boots” (that’s really what they’re called!) from Target, whose selection of 18” doll accessories seems to be improving in quality.  The boots fit the Kidz well; the shoes are a little loose.

I am starting to design more for the Hearts for Hearts Girls and have resized the Fall Jackets pattern to fit them too – it’s included free in the larger size one.  Look for more to come for those dolls as well! I’m working on the fairy patterns at the moment…

Make sure to follow the blog for updates and more free patterns delivered to your email!  A new dress for Sasha and a photo contest are coming Oct 12th…
