May I very own Harry Potter and Hedwig

I finally finished Roy's custom - just in time for his cousin's dress-up birthday party! The best part is that I only spent $1 (on the socks). Roy got the hat before he was born from a friend, borrows the tights from his 'girl-friend' and I had a bunch of left over felt from a previous project. I love projects like this! AND, I'm so happy with how it turned out. (OH, and Harry Potter was an afterthought, but easily accomplished - eye liner and striped cardigan)

Happy Halloween!

Handsome Pumpkins - don't you think?
