When I asked my favorite Harry Potter fan (aka my niece Josie) what craft we could make for her bedroom, she said a Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Pillow. Created with Kunin® Classic™ Felt, some Poly-Fil from Fairfield World, and fun antique gold trim in about an hour. I am sharing today as part of the Team Creative Crafts Harry Potter Crafts Edition, so stop back by on Saturday to see all of the creative inspiration!

How to Sew a DIY Deathly Hallows Pillow:
The Sign of the Deathly Hallows was a triangular mark used as a representation of the Deathly Hallows, three legendary objects that allegedly if united, would make one the “Master of Death”, also known as the “Vanquisher of Death” and the “Conqueror of Death”. The sign was actually composed of three separate marks that, united, make up the sign. The Elder Wand was represented by the straight vertical line, the Resurrection Stone by the circle surrounding it, and finally, a triangle enclosing them both to represent the Cloak of Invisibility. Shared from the Harry Potter Wiki site.
To begin the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Pillow, gather all supplies. Measure and mark two 18″ by 18″ squares from one yard of Black Kunin® Classic™ Felt using a yardstick and a white chalk pencil. Cut out with scissors. I love my Amplify Mixed Media Fiskars for heavier materials like a double weight of felt or corded gold trim. Measure and mark the top center of the square, and then create a triangle by drawing a line to both bottom corners. Cut out with scissors.
Place both layers of Black Kunin® Classic™ Felt on your work surface, then carefully cut and attach the gold gimp trim to each edge of the triangle with straight pins. Sew all three sides of the pillow through the trim and both layers of felt, leaving a four-inch opening at the bottom for stuffing. Make sure to backstitch all three corners.
Lay the gold trim out in a circle, just a bit smaller than the triangle, and then secure with E6000 Fabri-Fuse Fabric Glue. Repeat with a straight line of gold trim from the top point to the center bottom of the triangle. Attach trim to felt with E6000 Fabri-Fuse Fabric Glue which goes on a milky white and dries clear. Set aside to dry.
Once all of the glue has dried, stuff the pillow with the original Poly-Fil® from Fairfield World™ making sure to get into the corners of the triangle with a stuffing tool like a chopstick. Once stuffed, secure the opening at the bottom with straight pins and stitch closed with your sewing machine. Make sure to backstitch where the stitching overlaps. To finish the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Pillow, use tape to remove any Poly-Fil fuzz from the black Kunin Felt pillow.
