On that note, prepare yourself for a Quidditch Project dump.
Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch World Cup - Chaser
Project Name: Quick Cards
Brief Description: What I know about card making wouldn't even begin to fill a thimble. I just started stamping with no real plan or idea of what I was doing, just trying to use up some stash, and about an hour later I had these. What I've learned? That I need to buy a better black inkpad. And that I will never put a dent in my supply of scrapbook paper.
Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch World Cup - Broomstick
Project Name: Pillowcase
Project Page Link: Pillowcase Directions
Brief Description: If you think about it, a pillowcase is basically a cozy for a cushion. I've seen these sort of pillowcases wandering around Pinterest in collections of "10 Minute Sewing Projects," but I find that once I iron, cut, sew, and then zig-zag all the edges I've put in closer to 45 minutes. Maybe I'm just slow. In real life the blue border picks up the printing on the leaves, but my picture kind of mangles the colors.
Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch World Cup - Spirit
Project Name: Spirit Dress
Brief Description: My family is from Pittsburgh, I did my grad-school work at the University of Iowa, and I'm currently a Hufflepuff. Yellow and black everywhere! The polka dot ribbon is to disguise the fact that this dress turned out a little big. Maybe she'll grow into it?
Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch World Cup - Blurting
Project Name: Zippered Pouch
Project Page Link: Skip to my Lou Tutorial
Brief Description: First attempt at a zippered pouch! Didn't turn out too shabby, if I do say so myself.
