And now for the rest of the block! Earlier this week I showed you Scabbers and the Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Bean box. I still wanted Scabbers to sit a little higher. I added a box of chocolate frogs and a Honey Dukes box. If you’re a member of the project of doom facebook group, you should really check out the Chocolate Frog embroidery files in that group. They are fantastically detailed and have a great hexagon shape like the movie boxes. I would have totally used it if I had room for the shape of the box. Since I didn’t, I went with a simple, but effective idea. Maybe we’re looking at one side of the hexagon.
The Honey Dukes box is a made up idea. I kind of image that if you went in and bought lots of sweets they would send you out with a box similar to any pastry shop. It seems like the box would have their logo on it and would feel like it was dripping with sweetness. I knew I wanted the stripes and I also knew there was little to no chance I was going to find the perfect stripes so I painted them on!
It isn’t perfect, but I really like the wonky hand done effect. I think it adds a bit more to the sappy sweet look.

Check out the TBZ’s Harry Potter Quilt index. It is full of links including a link to the original project and patterns as well as links to any of TheBoredZombie.com’s related posts and other custom blocks complete with downloadable embroidery patterns or applique templates.
