What comes to your mind when you think of Harry Potter? The books or the movies? My answer would be both but the books are certainly some of my favorite books to read again and again every few years. For the last couple of years I have created a craft project to share at the end of July – Harry Potter’s birthday – to celebrate the books and the movies. This year I created a Harry Potter book titles cross stitch project.

The titles of the books are enough to bring back memories. My daughter has a t-shirt that lists the titles of the books condensed down to just one word that I have always found to be so clever. This t-shirt became my inspiration for the cross stitch pattern.
I first created a template for the pattern in PicMonkey and played around with different fonts and spacing until I got a pattern that I liked. I then uploaded the .pdf file to a online cross stitch pattern maker to get a basic grid for the words.
Cross stitch is a favorite hobby of my along with reading the Harry Potter books.
After I had stitched the pattern, I felt like it just needed something more. Just something to make it stand out more. So I sketched in the Elder Wand symbol to the grid and stitched it in the pattern as well.
The Deathly Hallows cross stitch pattern I created last year is a great companion to hang on the wall with this new project.
If you also complete a Harry Potter project each year, I would love for you to leave a link to your post in the comments.
Below are the Harry Potter projects I have worked on in the past.
