Today is one of my favorite days--it's Harry Potter's birthday!
Happy Friday, crafters! Boy, what a week I've had! After having a sore throat all last weekend, I managed to catch myself a sinus infection early in the week. It put me on my back the last several days, but I'm finally up and about, and I'm super excited to share with you our last… Continue reading Square #13: Weasley Jumper (Harry Potter CAL)
Happy Friday, crafters! It's a fact: Hedwig is amazing. Ever since her appearance in the first Harry Potter book, I wanted to have my very own snowy owl! Naturally, it wouldn't be a Harry Potter CAL without her! Originally, I was going to make her background in lovely blue, but I goofed on my… Continue reading Square #12: Hedwig (Harry Potter CAL)
Happy Saturday, crafters! I SO apologize for the delay in the release of this square (and for the subsequent lack of photos to go with this post). Yesterday just was not a good day--migraines and stomach aches and back pain, oh my! You'll notice one important difference in my original design for Hermione: the background… Continue reading Square #11: Hermione Granger (Harry Potter CAL)
Happy Friday, crafters! I meant to have this square done in time, but I'm (sadly) only about halfway done with it. As soon as I finish, I will upload pictures! EDIT: Pictures! Yay! Who doesn't love the story of the Three Brothers and the Deathly Hallows? The Deathly Hallows are such an integral part of… Continue reading Square #10: The Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter CAL)
Happy Friday, crafters! This week's square is none other than Ronald Weasley! Ever since I was a kid, I wanted so badly to be part of the Weasley family. What better way to celebrate our beloved Ron with a square of his own? You can download the PDF for square #9 here! The PDF contains… Continue reading Square #9: Ronald Weasley (Harry Potter CAL)
Hello crafters, and happy Friday! Even though I had Monday off from work for President's Day, and so my work week has only been a short one, it has felt like such a long week! I am so excited to get into this weekend and get some real work done on some wedding planning (!),… Continue reading Square #8: The Sorting Hat (Harry Potter CAL)
Hello, crafters! Do I have a treat for you! After much contemplation (and some encouraging nudges), I decided that the Hogwarts CAL needed some bonus squares that reflected each of the four Hogwarts houses. So here they are! (Isn't that Hufflepuff badger just adorable?!) These are what I call "bonus" squares, meaning that they are graph-only… Continue reading Bonus Squares: The Hogwarts Houses (Harry Potter CAL)
Hello crafters, and happy Friday! It's been a long week, but what a better way to start the weekend than with our Dobby square! The PDF pattern contains graphs and written instructions for both the smaller figure version of Dobby (shown below) AND a full-face version, so you can make sure you pick whichever version you… Continue reading Square #7: Dobby the House Elf (Harry Potter CAL)
Ever since Harry first got his owl, I have wanted to go to Hogwarts! Then again, haven't we all? What's not to love about this mysterious and grand castle? Shall I speak of the shifting staircases or the towering towers? The grandiose grounds or the humbling halls? This square was designed after a chapter heading illustration (see… Continue reading Alternate Square: Hogwarts Castle (Harry Potter CAL)
Well here's something exciting: it's the Time Turner square! Who hasn't wanted one of these things in the past? (I know I could sure use one!) You can download the PDF for the alternate Time Turner square here! The PDF contains graphs (with arrows!) and written instructions for the square. The square is designed to… Continue reading Alternate Square: Time Turner (Harry Potter CAL)
Hello crafters, and happy Friday! We wouldn't be here if it weren't for this week's star of the CAL: it's Harry Potter! The boy who started it all--we owe this entire CAL to Mr. Harry Potter! So here he is in his very own square. Note that for the glasses and the scar, you can… Continue reading Square #6: Harry Potter (Harry Potter CAL)
One of my favorite things about the wizarding world is the magical game of Quidditch! I don't know about you, but I wanted a Nimbus 2000 when I was eleven! So, by popular demand we now have a Broomstick alternate square for our Harry Potter CAL. I modeled this particular broomstick after the Firebolt because I… Continue reading Alternate Square: Broomstick (Harry Potter CAL)
