Harry Potter Box Bag

06-boxbagTomorrow is my mom’s birthday. This year I put together a Harry Potter themed package that included a pair of Gryffindor socks, cookies from a local bakery, a Marauder’s Map morphing mug (and a case of coffee), and this little box bag filled with her favorite bath goodies.

My original intent was to sew up The Gabby Bag using a custom print (also the Marauder’s Map) from Affordable Fabrics, but unfortunately it wasn’t printed in time to make it. Consequently, I went to plan B….. It’s been ages since I’ve made a box bag (you can find the instructions here), but sewing one is like riding a bike…. you just never forget what to do! For this one, I used Harry Potter themed fabric that I found at Joann’s – not nearly as cool at the print I ordered, but it will do.
