Sew Out Stash: Ikat Hogwarts Style

DIY Ikat knit skirt and Harry Potter shirt
Oh my guys I had high hopes for Sew Our Stash this month but besides the crazy work that the Happy Harry Potter series takes (all worth it though) we got hit with a huge bug and I’ve been holding Teddy through the night poor sick boy. So sadly those amazing hand stamped Harry Potter dresses that I had planned are still sitting as a pile of fabric on my cutting table.

DIY Ikat knit skirt

But I have made myself a few things this month. Just in case you forgot. We had the Square Maxi Skirt for Riley Blake. Pretend that I made myself and awesome Harry Potter top to go with it (I’m thinking with Polkadot Chair’s amazing Quidditch Mom design).

quick and easy square maxi skirt tutorial just 2 steps and 15 minutes

And I made that Hogwarts Text Book Skirt which I ADORE. It’s so cute in person guys! I’ll get a nice modeled shot of that for you soon. I promise.

But our theme this month was polka dots and here is my unusual take on polka dots. Let’s just say trying to combine Potter and Polka dots and all the other stuff going on was a little tough. But I’m in love with this skirt and I know it will get lots and lots of wear!

hogwarts alumn skirt and ikat knit diy skirt

I made it using my Simple Simon and Co’s SPEEEDY knit skirt tutorial. It teaches you how to take the measurements off your own body and make a pattern. It’s my favorite!

DIY knit skirt and Hogwarts shirt

I do have another polka dot project I was reeeeeaaaaallly wanting to make so I will just have to share it next month. But until then here is my new skirt and new top. I shared the tutorial on how to make this but the baby version last year and I’ll be adding the adult ones to my shop later this week (the baby ones can already be purchased here).

This sounds so fun. Monthly sewing themes for women.

Okay here’s to a better next month of Sew Our Stash. The theme next month is knock off!  And before you go Bev shared a bunch of awesome Maxi Skirt Tutorials so go check them out!

Hogwarts House Elves Curry Puff Recipe

Super yummy curry puff recipe great for Harry Potter parties

I grew up eating curry puffs. To me they are comfort food and party food at their best. Everyone I’ve feed them to has loved them. And any time we have  Harry Potter party they are part of the menu along with Dumbledore’s Pensieve of course.

Dumbledore's Pensieve what a fun idea and this recipe is so easy and yummy. We've made it a few times. Harry Potter lovers unite.

There isn’t anything in the books or movies called a curry puff but I’ve always assumed that Harry and his pals much on them. I think it has to do with the similarity to the English pasties and the curry that is so common in the area.Fun baby House Elves costumes. Mischief Managed Aprons

The House Elf apron and Mischief Managed Aprons are from my shop I make them both in kiddo and adult sizes and all the baby pictures are courtesy of Debra from Joyous Moments Portrait Photography and Housewife Eclectic.

Harry Potter House Elf and Mischief Managed Aprons and Curry Puff recipe so fun

Either way they are delicious and a great treat. They can be made ahead and served room temp or hot from the oven. They are great for school lunches, after school treats or if you’re a savory breakfast girl like me a nice easy breakfast. I made a bunch of these when Teddy was a newborn since they were so easy to reheat and eat one handed.

Delicious meat and potato filled pastry curry puff recipe great for breakfast lunch dinner or parties

Curry Puff Recipe

  • 2 Sheets Puff Pastry, thawed (1 box)
  • 1/2 lbs. ground beef
  • 2 potatoes, skinned and diced
  • 2-3 green onions, chopped
  • 1-4 TBS curry powder or paste (depending on how spicy  yours is)
  • salt to taste
  • water

This curry puff recipe so good. Everyone always asks for the recipe at parties

  1. Cook the ground beef and potatoes over medium heat until the beef is cooked through.
  2. Add about 1/2 a cup of water and continue cooking until your potatoes are tender to a fork. Stirring occasionally and adding more water as needed.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients. Start with just 1 tsp of your curry substance and add more to taste.
  4. Remove from heat and allow to cool enough to be handled.
  5. Cut each sheet of puff pastry into 9 squares.
  6. Place a heaping spoonfull of the ground beef mixture into the center of each squre.
  7. Fold over and press closed with the tins of a fork.
  8. Bake at 400 F until golden brown about 20 minutes.

Super yummy curry puff meat and potato pastry.

These can be served hot, room temp, or even cold. They freeze great and keep well.

Just give your House Elves the recipe and have them whip up a batch for your next party ;) But make sure they don’t eat them all before your guest get to them!
