Note from the Crafty Witches

This pattern was originally designed to form the top a plastic canvas tissue box top. As aida is not rigid enough, it is not recommended to use the pattern for such a thing. However, the images could be used to surround a nice frame, or even used individually. Your imagination is the limit here!


Mountain Harmony's original pattern was taken from Mountain Harmony Creations and turned into a cross-stitching pattern by Leaky Crafty Witch Josée Leblanc with permission. DMC color recommendations and Final Picture were made by Joanna.

Please note that the patterns and tutorials you find here have been designed by Harry Potter fans all over the Internet. The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterwards. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!

Also note that the tutorials, recipes and patterns found here have not been tested and that The Leaky Cauldron's Harry Potter Crafts section is not responsible for any mistakes they may contain. If you do find something wrong in one of them, however, please e-mail us to let us know.

On that note, Harry crafting to all!
