We all just kinda craft together, so anything Hogwarts/Harry Potter related you can share here with other Hogwarts lovers.
Alot of craftalongs like to do monthly themes for the fun (and to add inspriation)

I started crocheted the cat toy snitch last night, its very cute, just got one wing left and to tie it all together and find something rattly to put inside  Cheesy the hardest part will be getting my two cats to play with it for pics as theyve been taught if they touch my yarn they get a smack  Cheesy Tongue

So my Grandmother is in the process of cleaning out everything.  She's 90, and has been a crafter her whole life.  So this translates into me hoarding everything that I can from her stash! I found this mustard seed pendant along with a ton of other necklace bits a pieces and knew immediately what had to be made with it.

So I crafted some wings out of shrinky dinks, and voila!  An abstract snitch necklace.

It's a long necklace so it moves around a lot as I move, and the wings make a fun "tinkling" sound as they bounce around.



Sorry about the cell phone picture, I didn't feel like breaking out the big guns today for a photo session.  Wink

That is really really cute! I love how we know its a snitch but it doesnt scream nerd to the non-Hogwarts lovers  Cheesy

I took my snitch to work with me today in the hopes of finishing it, forgetting that people seem surprised that tattoo and piercing covered people crochet and instantly want to touch and talk about it  Roll Eyes lmao

Ooh, very cool! With all the Potter ideas bouncing around my head at the moment I may be a frequent visitor to this thread. Wink As it is, I made my first every Harry Potter craft the other day and was tickled with how it turned out:

It's a wand with a Bowtruckle attached. Sort of a twist on the magical core of wands. I came up with a whole back story for it but people keep saying it's depressing, lol, so I'll leave it off.

I wish I could crochet!  I can't wait to see your snitch. Also, you have some very well trained cats, mine thinks what's mine is hers and no amount of shooing will convince her otherwise.

And technogoddess, that necklace is gorgeous. I've never actually seen a shrinky dink in real life before - are they hard or flexible (plasticy)? They almost look like glass shards; very cool indeed.

I LOVE your wand!  so creative!  And please do share the back story.  I find creative writing so much harder then creative crafting!

Shrinky Dinks are a rather hard plastic, once they bake down.  you can make your own with #6 plastic.  Found this link for a tutorial:

A word of warning: they become ADDICTIVE!  Grin
