Cut the first letter of the house of choice and the golden snitch shape out using the detail fabric.

Pin and sew the fabric cut-outs onto one of the felt shields.

Put the felt shields right side together with the hair clip removed.

Sew around the curved parts of the shield, leaving the top open for turning.

Turn the shield right side out.

Through the opening in the top of the shield, slide the hair clip in between the shields so that the end of the hair clip slides out of the slot.

Sew the top opening closed.

Please note that the patterns and tutorials you find here have been designed by Harry Potter fans all over the Internet.

You can use them to make things for yourself. You canmake some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store. 

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put 
your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
