I Solemnly Swear That I Am Up To No Good

I love Harry Potter. I do. I really really do. And I am very much aware that I am not the only weirdo who feels that way. I'm currently reading the books for the 3rd time (I'm in the middle of Half-Blood Prince now). The Harry Potter books have made me both laugh and cry numerous times.
I just finished a Harry Potter related swap on craftster. I made my parner a Marauder's map inspired bag. The inspiration came from the embroidery forum on craftster where saw this. So for the swap I did my own take on it. Just so I would not get severe separation anxiety I also had to do one (a bit different) for myself too

I think it/they came out great! I'm quite proud of the way the
embroidery turned out. And I love how the glittery fabric looks.
Speaking of glittery fabric and HP: a while back I made myself a pair of HP-fabric pyjama pants.

Sadly this crappy picture taken at my mom's is the best I have. But you get the general idea. Unfortunately what you don't get is that the fabric actually glitters (but less and less with every wash). I used the pattern for simple "wide" pants from Joka Tyypin kaavakirja. These are the first pants I have ever sewn, and I'm really happy with them.
I have even passed on the deep love of Harry Potter to the next generation. My soon to be 9yo niece just can't get enough of the books:
Little Potter Addict
That's her reading the second book while waiting for her dear aunt (me) to get out of a fabric store, and she did not whine at all. Am I clever or what!
Oh, and my skull isle pouch was mentioned in both Lime&Violet and craftzine. How cool is that??
Is it just me, or is my english going downhill a bit?

I love the bag. What a great idea! I just finished a book (reading it with my son called "The Black Book of Secrets" It is one of my new favorites, just in case you need a "Harry" break.
