Ooooh he looks great!  I especially love the tail.  What did you do with the inside of the wings -- is it glued felt?

A Totoro Patronus!  That's pretty great, Mistress Jennie and noodle-bug.  Also, I love the contrast between the colorful beads and the metal charms.  It's one of my favorites you've done.

Now that my partner roler has received her package from me in the Stocking Swap, I can post everything I made for her.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Totoro perler ornament
Brief Description: I made a Christmas-themed Totoro ornament out of perler beads as part of my package for roler in the Stocking Swap.
Project Picture: (Note: I forgot to take pictures of the perler ornaments before packing them up, so I am borrowing the picture that roler posted of them in the Stocking Swap Gallery.  Each ornament took over 30 minutes, so I am counting each as a separate project, but I only have the one photo to share.)



Class/Challenge/House Pride: DADA
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Upcycled Necktie Headband #1
Brief Description: roler had a ton of great necktie crafts posted on her Pinterest.  I upcycled a lovely silk tie that I no longer wear for work into a headband for her.
Project Picture:



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Upcycled Necktie Headband #2
Brief Description: This year I am going to try and focus on the themes of "rebirth" and "transformation" in my crafting by making a greater effort to upcycle, stash bust, and craft reusable things to replace disposable ones (like paper towels and dish cleaners).  This headband, upcycled from one of my old neckties, is a first step in that direction.
Project Picture:



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Gandalf perler ornament
Brief Description: This perler ornament made the very long journey from Texas to Japan by post as part of roler's Stocking Swap package.
Project Picture: (Note: I forgot to take pictures of the perler ornaments before packing them up, so I am borrowing the picture that roler posted of them in the Stocking Swap Gallery.  Each ornament took over 30 minutes, so I am counting each as a separate project, but I only have the one photo to share.)



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Upcycled Necktie Scarf
Brief Description: This upcycled necktie scarf is both green in color, and in eco-friendliness.
Project Picture:



Class/Challenge/House Pride: HoM
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
TARDIS Deck Holder
Brief Description: The pattern for this plastic canvas TARDIS is originally for a Magic: the Gathering deck holder, although it can be used to conceal any number of small treasures the owner wishes it to.
Project Picture:





Class/Challenge/House Pride: House Unity
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Animal Crossing perler ornament
Brief Description: This perler ornament is composed entirely in shades of green, Slytherin's signature color.
Project Picture: (Note: I forgot to take pictures of the perler ornaments before packing them up, so I am borrowing the picture that roler posted of them in the Stocking Swap Gallery.  Each ornament took over 30 minutes, so I am counting each as a separate project, but I only have the one photo to share.)



Class/Challenge/House Pride: SoAR
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Upcycled Necktie Cup Guard
Brief Description: This upcycled necktie cup guard will help roler to ward off the cold as she enjoys a hot cup of coffee or tea.
Project Picture: (sorry for the oddly angled pic)



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Hobbit perler ornament
Brief Description: Hobbits/halflings are some of the most wee creatures of all the folk of Middle Earth.  I transfigured this one into a perler ornament, to make him even smaller and easier to ship as part of roler's swap package.
Project Picture: (Note: I forgot to take pictures of the perler ornaments before packing them up, so I am borrowing the picture that roler posted of them in the Stocking Swap Gallery.  Each ornament took over 30 minutes, so I am counting each as a separate project, but I only have the one photo to share.)



Lastly... I wanted to reveal some pictures of the stocking I made for roler, since I kept them hidden when I submitted the project for the Headmistress's December Challenge back on Page 17 of the thread.

roler received her package from me for the Stocking Swap several days ago, but I'm just now getting a chance to post everything I made for her.  Project Dump Alert! (LovelyMiss -- I sincerely apologize for how "out of order" these prompts are - I made a photo boo-boo, as you'll see down below.)

Prompt: Red Alert - Holiday Spirit
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Upcycled Necktie Headband
Brief Description: I made this headband out of an upcycled necktie and a flower buckle as one of roler's stocking stuffers in her Swap Package this past Christmas.  Since the tie slides through the buckle, it's totally adjustable.
Project Picture:



Prompt: Red Alert - New Year's Resolution
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Upcycled Necktie Headband #2
Brief Description: As I have watched my stash swell exponentially over the last couple of years (and considered how much money I've been spending on craft supplies), I've thought a great deal about how nice it would be to start stash-busting and upcycling items I already have instead of buying new materials.  roler had a ton of awesome necktie crafts on her Pinterest, and since I had several neckties I no longer wear for work, I figured that would be an excellent place to start.  Unlike the previous one, this one uses elastic for sizing purposes.  (I hope it wasn't too snug, roler!)
Project Picture:





Prompt: January - Brrr
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Upcycled Necktie Cup Guard
Brief Description: I up cycled this necktie into a coffee cup guard to prevent roler's hands from heating up too much when she's drinking her hot coffee/tea in cold weather.
Project Picture:





Prompt: January - C.O.L.D.
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points: +10 Letter Bonus
Project Name: Completely Outstanding Lady's Decoration
Brief Description: I upcycled this necktie into a decoration for one of our craftalong's Completely Outstanding Ladies - roler!  It's definitely my favorite out of the upcycled necktie crafts I did for her swap package.
Project Picture:



I COMPLETELY forgot to take a picture of the perler bead decorations I made for the Nerdy Element of roler's swap package, so I am borrowing the pic she posted in the swap thread.  This photo is for the next four prompts:



Prompt: December - Galpagos Islands
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Animal Crossing perler ornament
Brief Description: The Galpagos Islands are well known for the uniqueness of their ecology.  The leaf I crafted in perler beads is also part of the unique botany of another location -- your hometown in the Animal Crossing games.
Project Picture: (see above)

Prompt: January - Frozen Tundra
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Totoro Santa perler ornament
Brief Description: Totoro made a journey up to the very cold locale of the North Pole to help out Santa for the holidays (note his souvenir hat from the journey).
Project Picture: (see above)

Prompt: December - New Zealand
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Hobbit perler ornament
Brief Description: Y'all have already firmly established that New Zealand = Middle Earth/the Shire.  I chose this particular design for a hobbit perler ornament because it's actually based off of a Super Mario Bros. sprite.  (Two times the neediness, huzzah!)
Project Picture: (see above)

Prompt: December - Egypt
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Gandalf perler ornament
Brief Description: Surely the most well-known example of ancient Egyptian architecture must be the pyramids.  Gandalf's pointy hat features a similar triangle design.  (This one is again a video game cross-reference -- this time with Final Fantasy.)
Project Picture: (see above)

Lastly, I wanted to reveal the two "secret" projects I submitted back on Page 19, since they were by far the 2 biggest components of roler's swap package.

Here is the stocking I made.  It was by far the most ambitious sewing project I'd ever completed to date.  (It's the same pattern I'm using for my current Research Project):



This is the first time I ever attempted any kind of quilting.  I did bands of alternating width on the front side:



And I loved this fabric so much, so I figured I'd save it for the stocking back:



My favorite part of the stocking is actually the lining.  Oh my gosh, I was never so scared to mess up a craft in my life -- after spending 2 days on the stocking exterior, I had to sew it shut into the lining!  I thought I was going to mess it up for sure, but it came out just like it was supposed to.



This TARDIS canvas box is "supposed" to be a Magic: The Gathering deck holder, but I'm sure roler can find any number of nerdy treasures to store inside. Wink

Next year's (I guess this year's?) Fall Battles totally need to have a "crafting horror" theme for Halloween/October.  Like, "craft something inspired by memories of your most horrific craft fail" or "demonic/possessed craft supplies".  It sounds like we have a lot of experience to build upon! Tongue

I'm trying to think of what the crafty edition of a "Saw" Movie would be called... my mind immediately goes to cutting tools, but "Rotary Cutter" and "Cricut" both sound pretty lame.  ("X-acto" kind of has a nice "Stabby the Clown" sort of ring to it, though...)

AHHHHHHHHHH I am so upset right now... it really honestly never occurred to me that one could sew through one's fingers.  I am going to have nightmares about this for weeks!  Embarrassed Lips sealed Undecided Cry

I absolutely love how bright and lively these are.  Each one is so unique!
