Hermione's Otter Patronus - Let's Go to Hogwarts Week

Expecto Patronum! 

Hermione's patronus is an adorable, frisky otter. Self confidence and happiness are two things a wizard needs to focus on when casting the Patronus charm. Otters seem to be very big on happiness and self confidence so I think they are an excellent representation of the spell. I read that J.K. Rowling's favorite animal is an otter and that's why she gave it to Hermione this way.

The pattern for my Patronus is available at the Wild Olive etsy shop. Mollie makes such cuteness. I got the pattern tonight and stitched it up on felt right away. Yay fast Etsy turn-around! I shrunk the pattern by about 50% and I think I'm going to turn it into a fridge magnet.
