Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Lati Green Dress
Brief Description: My friend has a doll that's about 10 to 20 percent larger than my favorite sewing size and has trouble finding clothes that fit it.  I enlarged my standard bodice size using the very scientific method of "draw a line around it that looks right" and am pleased with the result.  Here's a picture of the two sizes together.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - March
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Batik Butterfly Dresses
Brief Description: I love working with oversized prints - you never know what the fabric is going to look like once you start cutting it up into little bits.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
Spew: Hillcrest Church Women's Association's Continual Lapghan collection
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Scrapghan Lapghan
Brief Description: I made a lapghan out of acrylic scraps in my stash.  These are perfect for keeping your legs warm while you nap on the couch.  Unfortunately the only picture I managed to take before sending it up to my grandmother's church was very early in the WIP stage and involves a bit of nonsense.  The finished product ended up being about 31 inches square and used up about 5 partial balls of yarn.  Apologies for the silliness!

I disappeared for a month and I don't even know why that happened.  I did plenty of crafting while I was away, but I need to work double time to see what fits the prompts here.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Sledding to the Pitch
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Mini Ironing Table
Project Page Link: More or less following this tutorial
Brief Description: I wanted a smaller ironing board I could set up next to my sewing-table/kitchen-table/desk/only-flat-surface-in-the-house-besides-the-floor so I didn't have to keep hopping up and down in the middle of projects.  I bought the tv-tray table but everything else came from stash.  Carefully pieced together three layers of batting to protect the table from heat, but forgot how hot it would get with the iron right next to me now that the weather is getting warm.

I had something made for Muggle Studies but accidentally donated it before getting a picture of the finished product.  I don't suppose a very silly work-in-progress picture would count?

Class/Challenge/House Pride: DADA
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Option 3
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Patchwork Littlefee Dress
Brief Description: When I first saw this fabric scrap I knew it had the potential to be an awesome doll dress, but I was a little bit scared to try it.  It was barely wide enough to cut the skirt out from, and I'd have to be very careful to line things up as I went, plus all the decisions of which "patches" to focus on for the skirt and bodice.  But I bit the bullet and really like how it turned out.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo Powder - Nursery
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: White Dress with Sash for Lati Yellow
Brief Description: Growing taller doesn't mean you have to grow up.  I spend most of my spare time making doll clothes for adults.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress' Challenge Craft Goddess
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Rainbow
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Vintage Floral Dress for Pukifee
Brief Description: Bright spring flowers standing in as a spring fertility symbol.  



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Teal Skirted Dress for Lati Yellow
Brief Description: I'd been saving this teal fabric scrap forever, and when I went to cut it up, I discovered I only had enough for a skirt.  But the finished dress still makes me smile.

~*COMPLETED OWL HEADER*~
OWL Subject & Option: Muggle Studies
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Woodland Quilt
Project Page Link (if available): Obsessively Stitching's First Quilt Ever Tutorial
Brief Description: While researching muggle fairy tales I came across one called The Bear which featured a princess transformed into a bear by putting on a bear skin and traveling in a magic wheelbarrow.  Blankets have transformative powers for little kids as well, offering protection and fuel for imagination.  This quilt is for my mother's neighbors first baby - and may not have turned out as gender neutral as we hoped.  But it is still really cute!  Although this is about my 10th quilt, it was my first time using a quarter inch piecing foot and a walking foot for the actual quilting, and I've got to say it made things much easier.  Finished on March 31st, in time for my self imposed deadline, but couldn't take pictures until yesterday.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Action 4, apple(blossoms) heart
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Three Pastel Pukifee Dresses
Brief Description: Celebrating spring and all the fruit trees blossoming around town, I made up three pastel dresses in similar colors out of scraps from my stash.  I wish I had more of the green floral - I might be able to squeeze a skirt out of the leftovers, but I'll be sad to see them go.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Bluebell
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Bonnie Blue Dress
Brief Description: This dress is made from a scrap left over from a quilt I made my Aunt.  I always try to make sure to have a few dresses made from fabric she either gave me or from things I've made her.  She stocks my etsy shop religiously and is always excited to see fabric she recognizes.

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Groovy Easter Dresses
Brief Description: The plovercrest is a bright purple and green hummingbird found in parts of Argentina and Brazil.  These dresses are as close as I could come to it's wild coloration.  (The green is the second dress I've made using the same fabric as I did for my CoMC assignment).

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Vomit
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Action 1, bubble, purple
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Purple Seas Dress
Brief Description: Carthage was founded in 814 BC by Phoenicians from Tyre.  Phoenicians were a sea trading people who were known for the purple dye made from murex shells.  As Rome grew beyond its seven hills and it came into conflict with Carthage and its dependents in the western part of the Mediterranean.  Ceterum censeo Carthaginem esse delendam.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Care of Magical Creatures
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Action 5, green
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Green Tulip Dress
Brief Description: Little and green, my friends!


65/365 Peace! by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress' Challenge - Shades of March
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Spring Green Dress
Brief Description: My mother got a subscription to Ancestry.com this year and I've been having fun poking around in the primordial ooze.  The most interesting bit I've found so far (besides an ancient picture of some great-great-grand-dude who looks just like my uncle) is that the branch of the family I'd always assumed was French was in fact Irish, and had something to do with flax way back in the deep dark past where all the men are John, all the women are Mary, and all the records are really dubious.  Flax flowers are blue, so this fabric seemed vaguely appropriate.

~*OWL PROPOSAL HEADER*~
OWL Subject & Option: Muggle Studies
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Woodland Quilt
Brief Description: While researching muggle fairy tales I came across one called The Bear which featured a princess transformed into a bear by putting on a bear skin and traveling in a magic wheelbarrow.  Blankets have transformative powers for little kids as well, offering protection and fuel for imagination.  I'm making a baby quilt for my mothers' neighbors and hope it will get plenty of use for story times, forts, and capes.  The fabric mom chose has bears and other woodland animals on it, so it should be really cute.  I hope to have this done by the end of March so I can take it up with me when I visit in April.
