Huzzah Hufflepuff! (Quidditch!)
I made a set of quidditch fan accessories in Puff yellow and black and then Steve helped me with this 'rabid fan' photo. Great, right?
I enjoyed coming up with the colorwork chart for the hat, but kept the fingerless mittens stripey.
I also tried a traditional origami coin purse.
It actually worked pretty well as I made the foundation chain the diagonal folding line (since folding is what foundation chains like to do naturally).
The coin purse is really a cube that is missing the 6th plane on the top... like an open box. Each of the 4 sides is folded diagonally in order to allow the sides to collapse in on each other, making the final object a flat square... see what I mean?
It was fun to play with yellow and black, but it was also fun to make these sushi scarves. Twinkie Chan has an imaginative eye for foodie fashion!
These scarves have a lot of small pieces though so as cute as they are, I worry a little about wear and the yarn ends popping out... we'll see.
I'll be back soon with my quidditch projects and my latest TriWizard Tournament task soon.
