52 Weeks of Literary Crafts: Hogwarts House Teddy Bear Scarves

Hogwarts Teddys

Getting sick of Harry Potter crafts yet? I hope not! Because I’m not even close to done! Seriously, I have so many more ideas. The house colors make for a lot of easy planning and creative uses.

Slytherin Teddy

This week I decided to make a set of cute teddy bear scarves. They’re pretty simple to make, though in retrospect I think I would have done a couple of things different.

Ravenclaw Teddy

The scarves are a straight knit the whole way through, and I opted to go without fringe. Looking back on it, I wish I had gone with a knit one row, pearl one row, repeat pattern, as that would have resulted in a flatter and cleaner looking knit. With something so small that can really make a difference. Oh well, lesson learned, right? On the bright side I’m still happy with my choice to opt out of adding fringe. It may have looked better with the knit/pearl pattern though.

Hufflepuff Teddy

Also, it’s really hard to find four matching teddy bears! At least without spending a fortune. My local box stores didn’t have any, and I just didn’t feel like going through a bunch of toy stores hoping to find them, so I ultimately googled ‘bulk teddy bears’ and ordered them online. Thank goodness for the internet!

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
