-Rotary Cutters & Mat OR Scissors
-Sewing Machine OR hand-sewing paraphernalia

1. CUT out pieces as follows: (either with rotary cutter, ruler and mat OR scissors)
   -20 rectangles measuring 6x4 inches of COLOR ONE
            (Hufflepuff = Yellow, Gryffindor = Gold, Ravenclaw = Pewter, Slytherin = Silver)
   -18 rectangles measuring 6x4 inches of COLOR TWO
             (Hufflepuff =Black, Gryffindor = Red, Ravenclaw = Royal, Slytherin = Green)
  -4 squares measuring 6x6 inches of COLOR TWO

2. Using scant* 1/4 inch seams, SEW pieces for one side/length together, alternating colors, so that you have used 10 Color One (Yellow in the example) and 9 Color Two (Black in the example). Sew the larger/square pieces on the ends (Black in this case). REPEAT for the other side/length.

*SCANT in sewing terms means that you're erring on the inside, so that your stitching line would be on the inside of 1/4 inch. The seam allowance (fabric on the inside of the stitching line) will be less than 1/4 inch in this case... more like 3/16 inch.

Make sure seams are all on the same (wrong) side

3. Place the two sides/lengths with Right Sides together, and SEW long sides with scant 1/4 inch seams.

4. TURN scarf right side out (so all the seam allowances are inside).

PRESS (carefully, on low setting, fleece is essentially plastic and will melt.)

5. CUT fringe on both ends, through both layers of fleece, about 2 inches deep.

6. Attend Quidditch match and declare your house pride!
