Looking again. No quotes, {My last one turned out weird.} Your gold and pumpkin polka dot dress is so cute. So is your doll. I hate orange. Grin But your's is cute. I love your little Autumn Rose, too. That is sweet. Where do you find those dolls? The ones like you have with the pretty face?

~T

Edit: I like doll #2. She is more in proportion. And has a younger face. What is she called, and where did you find her? Please.

Except for the big headed girl my dolls are bjds (which stands for Ball Jointed Dolls).  They're made of resin and have great pose-ability, but are definitely for grown up collectors rather than kiddos.  The second doll in my previous post is a 16 cm Lati Yellow from a Korean company called Lati.  The dark haired dolls below are the same size and from a different Korean company called Fairyland.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Autumn Rose Dress #2
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: Not a rose window, but definitely a rose.  This finishes up the last of this particular calico scrap.  I'm really lucky that I could center the rose motif on this bodice.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: DADA
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Little Polka Dot Dress
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: There is a tree dropping leaves the same color as this dress right outside of my office window.  Which is all well and good until the men with the leaf-blowers come...


More Polka Dots! by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - October
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Citrus Swirls Dress for JerryBerry
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I cut out this dress on a Friday evening intending to have a really productive sewing weekend, but it turned out too nice to be inside.  I spent my Saturday in the mountains and finished up the dress later in the week.


And More Swirls by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Citrus Swirls Dress for Pukifee
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I'm not going to say I could sew these dresses in my sleep, but at this point it's the sewing machine rather than the actual construction that gives me problems.  The colors on this fabric are really bright and cheerful and it's perfect for my most happy-go-lucky model.


Swirls by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: SoAR
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Halloween Argyle Dress #3
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I've made this identical dress three different times so far this semester.  This go around was for a friend and her new doll.  I wish I'd had a chance to take a picture of all three together, but they weren't all in the house at the same time. (Modeled by Katie's Tiny Delf)

Can I post two Beans in the same day?  One for the old prompt and one for the new?  We'll see what happens

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Pumpkin Spice Latte
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Burnt Orange JerryBerry Dress
Brief Description: Orange is not usually a color I go for, nor is pumpkin spice my flavor of choice.  But somehow this pumpkin orange fabric (with little gold polka-dots for some extra spice) is one of my favorite things in stash.  This makes the third dress I've made with it in the past two years, and there's another one in the works.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Roast Beef
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Autumn Rose Calico Dress
Brief Description: You can't get much more old fashioned than the fabric scrap I used to make this particular dress. And doll clothes are a time-honored use for scraps, doubly traditional. (I love the tiny little blue flower sprigs on this dress.  Not something you expect with those big(ish) roses).

Sorry to be MIA for so long.  It's been one of those months where the only thing you want to do when you get home from work is veg with a book - good for making inroads on my bookshelf, but not very productive on the crafting front.

But!  I still have a few things to show for myself.

~*COMPLETED OWL HEADER*~
OWL Subject: Charms
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Blue Stripe Socks
Project Page Link: Afterthought Heel Socks
Brief Description: I set out to learn how to knit two socks at a time using the magic loop method, and discovered that I don't enjoy that method.  Rather than making things go faster, it took me three months to make a pair because I wasn't really having much fun.  But, now I know, and my second attempt at afterthought heels turned out much better than the first.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pumpkin Swirl Dress
Brief Description: Apparently I've got a thing for swirly fabric this semester. 


Pumpkin Swirl Dress by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans - Liver & Tripe
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Two Halloween Dresses
Brief Description: I found myself suddenly in need of more Halloween dresses, so I whipped up these two.  Yes, they are identical (or nearly so) to the last ones I made.  I wish I could find more small-scale seasonal fabric locally.

Lace making by cathredfern, on Flickr

Color: Black
Pattern: Lace
For: Charity
Challenge: 10 is such a nice round number.  Make something inspired by ten - using 10 things, something that uses 10 pieces of your stash, whatever works for you.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Dotty Dress
Brief Description: Inspired by this picture of the pockmarked surface of Pluto's largest moon, we've got an itty bitty black and white and dotty dress.  I love the way this turned out.  You may see more in the future.


Keeping an ear open by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: House Unity
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Halloween Stripes
Brief Description: Halloween is a great time for the houses to come together to celebrate.  This dress has some green for Slytherins, blueish for Ravenclaws, some Hufflepuff black, and if you squint in just the right way you can pretend the orange is Gryffindor gold.


Harper found the candy corn by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Philosopher's Stone #2
Team: Knights of the Flaming Moonfish (gaudiknight, moonflame, whistlefish)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Three's A Crowd
Brief Description:  Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three (five is right out!).  Here we have three similar but slightly different dresses all using the same shape but with different fabrics.

Finally getting around to posting some of my September projects after what has been a wild and crazy month.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Mashed Potatoes
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Project Bag for MagPirate
Brief Description: I like making these little bags - there are only two cuts after you square up the fabric, everything is a straight line, no leftover scraps, and they don't take long to complete.  Comfort crafting at its finest.  This bag turned out a little on the small side since the Fat Quarter was more of a parallelogram (sorry MagPirate!), but it's still a nice size for a small take-along project.


Project Bag by Trillian, on Flickr


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Swirly Spiderweb Dress
Brief Description: This project has smokey grey spiderwebs, wispy swirls, and the black on black stitching was a bit of an eye strain.  But the finished results are terrific.


Sparkly Spiders by Trillian, on Flickr


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Argyle Dress #1
Brief Description: The fabric print for the skirt of this dress is argyle, which is a traditional pattern in muggle knitwear that hit mainstream popularity in the 1920s.  It was derived from plaid used to make kilts, migrated to socks, and here it is back as a skirt.


Mischa is getting ready for Halloween by Trillian, on Flickr


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Autumn Print Dress
Brief Description: Stashbusting!  I have so much stash, and doll dresses don't really use up all that much fabric.  But I perservere in hopes that I can make as much from old stash as I bring in for new stash.  I've had the fabric for this dress for about 10 years.  There was only enough for one dress out of this scrap, but I'm pretty sure there's another half a yard floating around in one of my bins.

Huzzah!  Another Hufflepuff!  Welcome, Nora.

And now on to the my last submissions of the semester.  I went back to the projects I posted yesterday and edited them since I realized I forgot to take into account the Slytherin Scavenger Hunt, if that's still a thing.  Hope that was okay.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Care of Magical Creatures
SPEW: Case for Smiles (Formerly ConKerr)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Sunny Sea Case
Project Page Link (if available): See Above
Brief Description: The accent fabric for this pillowcase is inspired by the aquatic habitat of mermaids, with all sorts of cheerful sea stars, fish, and seaweed.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - July
SPEW: Case for Smiles (Formerly ConKerr)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Rainy Day Case
Project Page Link (if available): See Above
Brief Description: I originally hoped to turn in this case for a Quidditch prompt, but a cutting/math mishap meant it had to wait.  Instead it's being turned in as finished WIP for the July detention.



Apologies for the wrinkles.  I was a bit pressed for time (har har har) ...

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Sunny Shrug
Project Page Link: An adaptation of Wovenflame's Pukifee Shrug Pattern
Brief Description: Inspired by the yellow stripes of bees, we have a teeny tiny cardigan.  The pattern was actually written for a much smaller doll, but knit up in fingering weight yarn rather than lace weight it worked quite well for this purpose.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Library Challenge - August Preperation
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: #12 Bloody Baron - for the wispy lace.
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Ribbons & Lace
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I have a pretty good collection of lace and ribbon, but I don't get to use it much because it was all jumbled up in a box under my bed.  I untangled everything, wrapped a lot of it around mat-board cards to get everything the same size, pinned down all the ends that were loose, and redistributed it all into a shoebox for the ribbon spools (and some extras) and a large flat box for the trims.  Now they'll all fit on my shelves were I can access them easily and see what I have.  As for a book recommendation, I'll go with the old standard Tailor of Gloucester by Beatrix Potter, which demonstrates the importance of knowing where all your trim and ribbon and twist is before starting a project.
