Harry Potter Inspired Bookmarks

Hello, my name is Megan and I love Harry Potter.  As I am sitting here, I am listening to the seventh Harry Potter book and gleefully awaiting "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child"!  I ordered my copy from Amazon so I won't have it until next week.  Rest assure that when I get it-I will be taking a crocheting hiatus to relive my high school years by shutting myself in my room and reading Harry Potter until midnight (I swear I had friends!).

I have to imagine that there are other crocheters out there who ALSO grew up with Harry Potter, and so I came up with this cute little bookmark pattern to get you ready for the book release!  Unless you happen to have a sorting hat on hand (and I am TOTALLY jealous if you do) you will have to search your heart to pick your house colors.
