Ack!  As I was typing this up a new Bean challenge was posted!  But if I'm reading the rules right I can still squeak by...

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Cherry
SPEW: n/a
House: Hooflepoof
Project Name: Clever Closures
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: Packaging is by its very nature ephemeral, but occasionally you find something that makes you stop and go "wow, that's pretty clever."  My mother had found one she thought was amazing (we're both dorks like that), and asked me if I could figure out how to recreate it.  After a bit of finagling I had a template made and put together a couple of examples in different weights of paper to see which works best (oddly enough it was the lightest one - green).  Stopped there, because we didn't have any need for more, but now we know it can be done!

I am very late posting my awesome supply package from Alliekat914!



I now have enough adhesive to glue a small army, some great stamps that I can use for the legion of Birthday cards I'm going to have to send out next month, a nifty stamp block (with handle!), an assortment of brads, including some neat glitter flowers, shiny pens, and some gift enclosures.

It's all wonderful!  Thank you so much, Alliekat914!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Botts Every Flavor Bean - vanilla
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Vanilla Dress
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: Some people consider vanilla to be a pretty boring flavor, but it has hidden depths.  This fabric looks plain at first glance, but actually has a tone-on-tone decoration that kind of looks like a William Morris vine print.

Love the Yoda Hat!  I have to make a nerdy baby gift this month, so I'll have to keep that idea in mind.

Time for a project dump of my own:

I made this gal for the Ongoing Wishlist Swap.  Everything - yarn, eyes, pipe-cleaners for armature, fabric & lace - came from stash.  I am very pleased with her.

I also sent along two more bits of clothing, which another of my dolls got to model

And then I tested out a new-to-me pattern adaptation.  I am getting a lot of mileage out of this old sheet. 

I'm not sure I'll be making the dress out of good fabric - a bit too Laura Ashley / 80s Bridesmaid Dress for my taste.

March Themes


noro sock wip by splityarn, on Flickr

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.


Dress #3 by AluminumDryad, on Flickr
