So, it was decided last minute that a group of us are going to see Harry Potter tomorrow night and I simply could not go without paraphernalia with which to express my love. I assessed my supplies, figured out what would be quickest to make, and came up with this:

The badger is black and grey fleece (So he's a little fuzzy :3) appliqued onto yellow denim, which I then appliqued/sewed onto more fleece (There aren't any closer shots because the sewing isn't as nice as I'd like). The letters are more appliqued denim.

Here it is worn normally:

And here's how I'll probably be wearing it while waiting in line (Both because I love cowl necks and because we had our first snowfall today and I'm cold-intolerant Wink):

Oooooooooo...more Hufflepuff love!  I love it.

I ended up wearing my huge knitted HP scarf to class and the movie.  It was pretty awesome.  Cheesy

I handcarve stamps, knit and have organic catnip.

i was just the other day wondering about making hufflepuff items with limited yellow (becos that would probably be my house but i hate yellow.  love badgers, though!) and this is a very classy solution to that dilemma.  also, i don't know what you mean about the sewing because it looks very professionally done - i love the look of the appliqués.  how do you do appliqués so neatly on fleece?  is it still possible to iron-on before sewing, even though it's fleece?

creative criticism always appreciated!

Hufflepuff ftw! It's so awesome, I'd want one of those! Really great, way cooler than all those Gryffindor scarfs =D

Aww, thanks, everyone. I'm glad you like it. :3
I'm pleased to say that it was a hit at the movie, too (well, to those who noticed; the grey/black combo made it a bit more incognito Tongue).

how do you do appliqués so neatly on fleece?  is it still possible to iron-on before sewing, even though it's fleece?

I just put a single layer of cotton fabric between the fleece and the iron, and it worked just fine. There is a slight, almost unnoticeable sheen to the grey around the letters and the ironed fleece is a bit more compact, but that's about it.
