Cozy up with these crochet vintage Hufflepuff slippers! Make them yourself with this free pattern and show your house pride!
I took the sorting test on Pottermore twice. Yep. I created two separate accounts for the sorting test. Why? Because I could? Maybe? Mostly because I got Gryffindor and I secretly think I’m a Hufflepuff. I got Ravenclaw on the second test so I’m not exactly sure what to do with that. Anyone else in the same boat?
As the holidays gear up, the pressure is on when you’re a crafter. I usually try to start my holiday creating at least 2 months in advance, but I was a little late with that so here I am… rushing to crochet, knit, weed, iron and paint a ridiculous amount of stuff. Does anyone else feel like they need to top themselves from the year before? I mean, yeah. I could go the easy route and just get gift sets for people but there comes this expectation that when you’re a crafter, you hand make everything. This year, I am making a ton of these slippers and I am in love with the color scheme. You see, this year, my friends and I decided to re-read the Harry Potter series and actually analyze it for what it is. It’s amazing the things that come into play when you’re looking at something as an adult. As a result, that friend group are getting vintage style slippers in their house colors! I nearly kept these Hufflepuff ones for myself!
