It's hard to believe that Harry Potter is middle-aged. I love to read and was excited to be able to read this book series with my nieces and nephews, over and over again when they were young. Reading has always been an important part of my life and I enjoy passing along this particular love to my favorite kiddos. I've created a Harry Potter Felt Bookmark with a FREE Printable Pattern Sheet, so you can create some valuable family time with your kiddos within the pages of a BOOK!

Here's how to create the Easiest Harry Potter Bookmark:
To begin the Harry Potter felt bookmark, download patterns (BELOW ⇓), print them, and then cut them out with scissors. Trace patterns on the Cream, Gold, Ruby, and Walnut Kunin Classic Felt with the MONO Twin Permanent Marker according to the directions included on the pattern sheet. I love drawing and tracing with the MONO Twin Permanent Marker from Tombow because it has a large bullet tip and a small extra fine tip.
Fringe a one-inch section at the bottom of the Ruby Kunin Felt rectangular-shaped scarf piece with scissors by cutting narrow strips across the width.
Using the fine tip end of the MONO Multi Liquid Glue, attach Harry's Walnut Felt hair to the top of one of the Cream Felt circles. This will become his head. The fine tip applicator on the MONO Multi is perfect for detailed glue application.
Glue both Cream Felt circle head patterns to the front and back of the top of the Ruby Felt rectangle scarf, creating a sandwich. Overlap approximately one-half-inch.
Attach the Gold Felt rectangles to the scarf with MONO Multi Liquid Glue. Overlap the first Gold Felt rectangle on the bottom of Harry’s chin, and then leave ¾” Ruby Felt sections between each of the five remaining gold rectangles.
Carefully draw glasses on Harry’s face with black dimensional fabric paint. Create two circles and then draw a curved line attaching the circles together. Set aside to let the paint dry. Make sure to test the glitter glue on a paper towel or scrap piece of paper first to get the flow going.
Draw Harry’s lightning bolt scar on his forehead with gold glitter glue. Set aside to let glitter glue dry. Use the point of a toothpick to drag the ends of the lightning bolt to points.
