1  Head Girl Badge in Completed Projects by jillybeans on: March 01, 2014 09:31:59 AM
Hi there!  My partner, tapestrymlp, in the Terribly Important SOB swap Round 2, hails from the Hufflepuff house.  She is so terribly important, that Hogwarts recognized her by naming her Head Girl.  Huzzah!

The medal is done in wool felt and hand stitched with embroidery floss.  I also hand sewn on some beads to make it fancier.  Then I added some ribbon underneath, the black was a velvet and the gold silk, with some tiny shiny gold ribbon on top.  I added a bit of string to the back so that she could use it as an ornament.

It was all packaged up in a tin I found laying around the house.  I made a little bed inside the tin for her badge to lay and wrapped tissue paper around it all.  A little strapping on the outside made it look oh so official.  I also sent a letter of announcement from Hogwarts along, as well, though I didn't manage to take a picture of that.

Thanks for looking!

2  Hufflepuff Owl in Completed Projects by jillybeans on: March 01, 2014 09:24:14 AM
Hi there!  I made this little fellow for my partner, tapestrymlp, in the Terribly Important SOB swap round 2.  Tapestrymlp is so terribly important that she needs her very own owl to deliver her oh so significant letters, and of course it must be sporting her house colors!  Go Go Hufflepuff!

The little owlie himself was done in Fimo clay and then painted with acrylic paint.  The little scarf is wool felt and sewn together with a sewing machine (which, I found, was rather difficult being that it was so small, but I prevailed nonetheless).  The pedestal he is sitting on is something that I made from random wood pieces that I happened to have, glued together, painted with acrylic paint, and distressed with gold Rub N Buff.  The top of the pedestal is a knob, then a pot, then a wheel, and then fat cylinder. I added sticks around the owl to make it look like a little nest and bits of book pages from the Order of the Phoenix are on the bottom, aged with Tim Holtz inks.  

Thanks for looking!

3  This Hedgie Presents "The Countess of Craftasticallness" in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by jillybeans on: February 28, 2014 07:27:36 PM
Hi there!  I made a hedgehog painting for my partner in the Terribly Important SOB round 2 swap.  This little hedgie is holding a sign that proclaims my crafty partner, tapestrymlp's, very important title.  All is done in acrylic paint with a little added crackle glaze on the crown to make it stand out a little more and give it a little dimension.  The canvas is burlap with white over the top, which I found as is at Hobby Lobby.  It is 11x14". 

Here are a couple progress shots:

Baby bean was such a great helper!  Wink

Ooooo!  Love all the very important accessories you received, Alexus1325!

Due to my own importance around here, its taken me a couple days to get pictures up of my awesome package from tapestrymlp.  But, do not fret, I'm here to share it with you!  She totally spoiled me with 4 items and some cloth diapering extras, too!  <3

First off, this little owl adorned with a crown necklace.  I love it so much!  I love owls, and all the elements that put it together is fabulous! 

A beautiful Hufflepuff colored bracelet!  Omg, it is so lovely!  I really am a sucker for different elements and textures on one item.

A very fancy glass candle holder!  I can't wait to get a candle in there and see it lit up!  Perhaps I will have to get an action shot of it later.

A fantasticly important altered bottle!  The bottle is died a lovely green on the inside, and the outside has all those fabulous little details!  Its stinkin' awesome!

And my favorite item of the very important bunch, an art quilt!!!  Look at its splendor!  It has so many details and textures!  I could look at it all day!!!

And lastly, extras!!!

She sent me some baby stuff!!  Some cloth diaper liners, a burp cloth, a fitted diaper with cute bunnies, and a whole lot of bamboo fleece!!  OMG!  Funny story, my mom bought me a couple yard of bamboo fleece online but that order got cancelled due to low stock and then her package came in and it was exactly what mom had ordered!  So stinking excited!  Now I can make up some inserts for her gdiapers!  Yay!! 

Thank you so so much, tapestrymlp!!!  I love everything so so much and I feel so very important having you for a partner!  <3

Man, I'm slacking on getting a picture posted!  So sorry!  Here is the awesome hanging carseat cover that Watsonc7 made for us!  The print is lovely and it fits perfect!  The inside is a light pink fleece, so its so so cozy!  Which is awesome, because today its -1 with a -20 wind chill.  Luckily, its bright and sunny out, just freezing!

Thanks Watsonc7!

omg, I so want all the jewelry!  Beautiful work, anna.wahnsinn!
