1 1/2 to 2 yards of fabric
3 to 4 feet of ribbon
Needle or sewing machine
Sewing scissors
Tape measure
Chalk or pencil


Measure around bust-line and hips. Measure from collar bone to where you would like the apron hem to fall.

Cut out two rectangle pieces of fabric accordingly. Hold the apron up to yourself and measure how long you would like the ribbons that will tie around your waist and neck. (Be sure to cut a little extra length to allow room for sewing on the ribbon.) Pin ribbon in place. These can be attached when you sew the seam. Be sure to leave at least 1/4” for seam allowance.

Sew seems to prevent fraying.

Pockets can be added by cutting out proportionately sized squares of fabric, being sure to allow 1/4” of seam allowance. If using a sewing machine, use edge foot to sew pocket on apron.

Optional – Add any extra embellishments such as you house’s coat of arms, ribbon, embroidery or mascot.

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!
