Any Harry Potter fans at your house? Have you taken the Pottermore quizzes? Any other Ravenclaws??
We are big fans. I stumble on Harry Potter sewing ideas, fabrics, patterns and tutorials pretty often, so I think it’s high time I compile my favorites of those for you! If I were still teaching sewing, I’d for sure be having a Harry Potter sewing camp this summer. If you use that idea, I want to hear all about it!
Let’s get started.
Free Harry Potter Sewing Tutorials
Let’s start with the free patterns! I like to point out that the photos in this section all belong to their respective bloggers, I did not take them :)
Hooded Harry Potter towel. From Making Things is Awesome
Harry Potter Baby Activity Cube from Bugaboo City
This is an epic pattern for a Harry Potter themed quilt! I’ll link you to the first post of the quiltalong, then you can follow the links for the rest. From Sew Fresh Quilts
Harry Potter Hats from ikatbag
And the Sorting Hat! Also from ikatbag
Quidditch Robes from Polkadot Chair. This tutorial uses a robe sewing pattern as a base, so it’s technically not free unless you have a pattern that will work, but a good robe pattern is a handy thing to have on hand anyway!

Harry Potter Patterns for Purchase
Let’s move on to the patterns for purchase. There are a LOT of amazing Harry Potter patterns out there, but I have done the footwork and chosen my absolute favorites!
To start, Simplicity has a great Harry Potter costume pattern. I used it for Layla’s Halloween costume last year (she was Hermione).
Here’s Layla in her costume. It was awesome! We got the tie at Target, they had them in the Halloween section for $4 and I couldn’t have made one for that price. You can even get some awesome house crest iron on patches here.
Simplicity also recently came out with a doll clothes pattern for Harry Potter! How fun.
There are some very talented makers on Etsy that also have great patterns for Harry Potter!
How cute are these Harry Potter pocket dolls? By Wal Artesanal
Harry Potter themed Quiet Book pattern by Felting Nerdy and More. Amazing!!
I was looking real hard for a good Harry Potter doll pattern, but came up empty! There are plenty for crochet, but not much for sewing. Not to worry, though, it started my gears turning and I think I can remedy that problem soon! Stay tuned ;)
Harry Potter Fabrics
There are lots of great Harry Potter fabrics out there. I’ll link to my absolute favorites.
First, Here are my Amazon picks. Just click on the photos to shop.
This might be my favorite I’ve seen! So cute.
I also really love this Hedwig one.
Etsy also has some great Harry Potter ribbons.
If you do order some of that amazing fabric, but aren’t sure what to do with it, consider a pillow case (this is my favorite method). Or some baby bibs, or zipper pouches. Ooh, or an apron. What great gifts all those things would make for the Harry Potter enthusiasts in your life.
Ok, one more thing and this is clearly not sewing related, but it IS what sparked this roundup idea, so I have to include it because my 12-year-old Layla and I LOVE this Harry Potter board game! She got it for Christmas and we think it’s so much fun. It’s a cooperative deck building game so it takes a long time to play through all 7 rounds, but that’s kind of what we like about it! Seriously so, so fun.
If you’d like to save this roundup for later, I’d be happy for you to use this image:
I think that’s it! Well, I mean, I could go on and on, the Harry Potter inspo is endless, but I have tried to choose the best of the best for this roundup. If you enjoyed this, check out my Star Wars Sewing Roundup!
