March Themes

Color: Green
Pattern: Stripes
For: Your Craft Space
Challenge: Now that you've weeded through your stash you might find it useful to do some organization - put all your yarn in bins, sort your beads, and consolidate all those half empty containers of googly eyes.  If you come up with a particularly clever way to organize your stash or have found something on the web that could be useful or inspiring, please share!

Slipping in with a couple more projects and twenty minutes to spare (sorry!).

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Sewing Practice Shirt
Project Page Link: Made using this pattern
Brief Description: I need to get better at sewing knits, and the only way to do that is through practice.  This shirt is made up of 5 pattern pieces - the front, two sleeves, and two pieces for the back.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Itty Bitty Books
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I made a batch of mini paperback books for out of old magazines, scrapbook paper, and washi tape.  The two larger ones are a bit big for a matchbox (maybe if we counted kitchen matches...) but the smaller ones would fit no sweat, since they're only about 1 3/4 inches tall.  They turned out okay for a first try, but I'll need more variety to furnish a library.  5 down, 12,937,541 to go.


(Whoops!  Sideways!)

Goodness that's a lot of googly eyes!  Love it!

Stopping by with a few quick things before February ends.  I'll be posting themes for March tomorrow, so brace yourself.  (Or just go look back at the first page, where the entire year is posted.  Tongue)

Further proof I have no idea how to sew knits:

And a mess of doll dresses.  I'm looking forward to having this pattern hammered out, so I can go through my scrap bin and weed out things that aren't the right size to save.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: CoMc
SPEW: n/a
House: Hooflepoof
Project Name: Pattern Testing Dress #2
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: The swirls and stars of this dress reminded me of cold clear winter nights and blowing snow, while the chocolate color has a lot in common with the super soft color of flying reindeer fur.  It might need a mossy green ribbon sash in the future to really tie it into the tundra color scheme.


Dress #2 by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
SPEW: n/a
House: Hooflepoof
Project Name: Pattern Testing Dress #1
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: In testing out a pattern, one really doesn't want to use your best fabric.  But muslin gets so boring.  In this case I recycled an old green plaid sheet instead (green & green!)


Dress #1 by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Beans - Black Pepper
SPEW: n/a
House: Hooflepoof
Project Name: Pattern Testing Dress #3
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: By this point I'd finally figured out how to get the bodice to fit properly.  The black goes with just about anything, so you can save your fun fabric for the skirt for a bit of spice.

Bushbaby - Love the shawl!  It's giving me serious stash envy.

As those of you who have DeStashed with me in previous years know, I have a tendency to drop off the face of the earth and then pop in with a bunch of doll clothes to show for my absence.  This year is no exception.

Left over from January's DeStash efforts we have ...

A Doll Sweater

ADAD 2015 - Colorful by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

And a ConKerr Pillowcase

Cupcakes for ConKerr by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

I have about half a yard of the cupcake fabric left and no idea what to do with it.  Story of my life.

And February has started off with a bang with five more dresses, all from scraps of a quilt I made back in 2011.

Wardrobe Enhancement Exercize by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

That's it for now.  My plan for the weekend is to photograph my yarn stash so I can organize it with Ravelry and start doing some major planning.

Unfortunately I've also got a bit of a stash-enhancement trip planned too, since I discovered I have no pink in my stash with Valentines Day just around the corner.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepug
Project Name: Concealing Curtains
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I live in a very small place, which means I can't let any bits go to waste.  There's a very deep shelf above my "fireplace", so I put together some closetmaid shelves to tuck behind my TV.  They were ugly as all get out, so I whipped up some muslin curtains to hide the shelves, cords, and boxes.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Banana
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepug
Project Name: Bevy of Blue Dresses
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: Doll dresses make me happy!  Blue calico makes me happy!  Stashbusting really makes me happy!  Experiments with batch sewing and efficiency make me pretty pleased.  And being able to turn an oops in interpreting the prompt for alchemy into a Bean instead makes me happier still.

Just popping by really quickly to drop off my Cheese Bean right before the deadline.  Will have more time to look at everyone's projects in the morning, when I'm not so sleepy.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Cheese
SPEW: conkerrcancer.org
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Cupcake Case
Project Page Link: See above link for more information
Brief Description: I've had this fabric for closer to three years than three months.  And like most novelty fabrics I buy, I can never figure out what to use them for once I get them home.  ConKerr pillowcases are a great way to use up that sort of fun but not terribly useful fabric.

February Themes


I Heart Victoriana by The National Archives UK, on Flickr

Color: Red
Pattern: Hearts
For: Someone Special
Challenge:  Weed your stash.  As you were looking it over last month you probably ran across a few items that you know in your heart of hearts you aren't going to use.  Maybe your tastes have changed since you acquired them, maybe your great-aunt Mabel insisted you take them and you couldn't say no, or maybe you can't even remember where they came from.  It's okay to let them go!  Take those things to the goodwill or keep an eye out for a local group that could give new life to your crafty cast-offs.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: January Detention - WIP
SPEW: n/a
House: Hooflepoof
Project Name: Squiggle Dress
Project Page Link: Made using this pattern
Brief Description: I cobbled this dress together back in December since the fabric reminded me of a weird combination of Christmas and doctor's waiting room couch upholstery (how could I resist?).  The bodice came out much larger than expected, so I put off sewing the lining and snaps until this weekend.


Finally Finished by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

My OWL is going... not well.  I am utterly befuddled by the pattern I intended to use, so I thought I'd switch to one that was charted instead.  It's still not looking quite right.  I may post a picture of my progress later to ask for opinions.
