Cast a spell on little wizards with this DIY Harry Potter Quiet Book

Harry Potter Quiet BookKids may need to wait until their 11th birthdays before they can start looking for a Hogwarts acceptance letter, but there’s no reason to keep the magical world of Harry Potter away from our youngest wizards. 

If you’ve got some good ol’ muggle sewing skills and a penchant for the Boy Who Lived, here’s one quiet book for which you’ll want to yell, Accio! 

Created by Julie Gillrie, whose quiet books we have loved for quite a while, Harry Potter and the Quiet Book has totally put a spell on me with its special little details and hands-on tricks.

Harry Potter and the Quiet Book

With the PDF instructions and your own materials, skill, and patience, you can create something truly special for the young Harry Potter fan-to-be. I can’t get over how much thought went into each page, from the use of elastic to allow Harry to “fly” across the page to grab the snitch, to the dress-up Hermione doll with multiple outfits. Don’t worry, nothing gets too intense or scary, as evidenced by the bright yellow birds flying around Mr. Weasley’s out-of-control car–no Whomping Willow in sight.

This may be a bit beyond my own skill level–which is of more limited to staple-and-glue type of crafts–but those of you who are comfortable with a sewing machine should have far less trouble. Plus, when this incredible 11-page book apparates in front of your child, they will surely be charmed by it. -Christina
