    potterhead23: I don’t suggest working with metallic floss ever. They really are a pain! However, in the supplies list above, Quietish suggest a brown color that is suitable for a book Ravenclaw.

    Gwynog’s Rabbit: You can actually make a Gryffin puff version quite easily. Instead of selecting a total of 3 strands (2 strands of red and one strand of golden yellow), take 6 strands (2 red, 1 golden yellow, 2 Hufflepuff yellow and 1 black), then do a little bit in Gryffindor colors, a little bit in Hufflepuff colors, etc. Or you could actually do half and half.

    Those bracelets are very easy to make, yet the final product you get is really pretty!

    We used a bit of home into the yard, I’d surprise playing could reach. that a bit of things. I’d hoped bellowed I started

    From the guide: “The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns [...]”.

    That’s a joke, right? How can you possibly call that a “pattern”? Just by choosing some random colours that do not even look similar to the “original” colours? Honestly, that does not seem lawfully appropriate ...!

    (Apart from that, I think it is against the law to sell anything with the name of one of the Hogwarts houses in it [if you’re not the copyright holder]! If you’ve got the “pattern” from here or designed it yourself doesn’t matter anyway!)

    Anika, that disclaimer is just the standard disclaimer we add to each of the patterns, tutorials and charts we post on Leaky. That tutorial is just the same, and while you may change the colors if you think they are not the original ones, the tutorial still inspires people to craft, which is the whole point of the crafts section.

    We have simple tutorials and very complicated ones in the crafts section, in the hope of meeting the needs of the different level of crafters that visit the site. And no matter how simple the tutorial is, the person still took the time to write it, share it on the net, and give us permission to post it on Leaky.
