Project of Doom Week 9
This week we made the Golden Snitch and a stack of books with our house tie. I am in Hufflepuff house, so my tie colors are yellow and black.
Both patterns can be found at Fandom in Stitches.
Here is my Snitch.
“To Harry James Potter, I leave the Snitch he caught in his first Quidditch match at Hogwarts, as a reminder of the rewards of perseverance and skill.“—Rufus Scrimgeour quotes from Dumbledore’s will on this Snitch.
And my house tie.
- “You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil“—The Sorting Hat
Hufflepuff is one of the four Houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Its founder was the medieval witch Helga Hufflepuff. Hufflepuff is the most inclusive among the four houses; valuing hard work, patience, loyalty, and fair play rather than a particular aptitude in its members. The emblematic animal is a badger, and yellow and black are its colors. The Head of Hufflepuff is Pomona Sprout and the Fat Friar is the House’s patron ghost.
Hufflepuff corresponds roughly to the element of earth, and it is for that reason that the House colors were chosen: yellow represented wheat, while black was emblematic of soil. The Hufflepuff points hourglass contains yellow diamonds.
