We've snared another one! *cackles evily in a corner*

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
Scavenger Hunt: Not Our Color - Gryffindor Red & Gold
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Fat Quarter Project Bag
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: It's been a while since I made one of these bags.  They're kind of awesome because they take up an entire FQ with nothing left over (important when you're DeStashing), they are relatively quick to make (about an hour), and they can be used for just about anything.  This one is made for my mother.  The colors of the flowers remind me of flames.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Beans - Curry
Scavenger Hunt: Vanishing Cabinet - Fat Quarter into tote
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Fat Quarter Project Bag
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: Most of my fabric comes from older friends & relations, with an occasional splurge with a coupon at Joanns.  This Fat Quarter came from an honest-to-goodness quilt shop.  The sort of places I browse longingly but rarely buy anything from.  I was saving it for something special, but then decided I wanted something simple to show off the awesome print.

The final picture isn't a submission for points, just for the scavenger hunt Time Turner prompt.  It didn't take very long, and I can't figure out a category to put it under anyway.  I went back to a jumper I made last year and lengthened the straps and moved the snap so it would fit a friend's doll.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Defense Against Dark Arts
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Blue Again
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: While doll dresses and the color blue definitely aren't breaking any new ground for me, I decided to see what a large print fabric would look like for a change.  The usual rule of thumb for doll clothes is the fabric motif shouldn't be larger than the doll's hand, but I really like the way this turned out.  Modeled by my friend's doll, so it looks shorter than usual.  She's a leggy girl.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Library Challenge - Celebration
SPEW: n/a
House: Hooflepoof
Project Name: Rose Dresses
Project Page Link: Rings of Change by Jane Fancher
Brief Description: Three rose printed party dresses inspired by the Rings of Change series by Jane Fancher.  I like this series because although it's fantasy it doesn't have a medieval, steampunk, urban or other overdone setting.  The inhabitants of the world treat magic as if it were a public utility, and where the "ley" works, only roses will grow.  The story is about three brothers and opens with a rather dysfunctional birthday celebration.


Mischa really likes the bunny hat. by Trillian, on Flickr

(On a strange side-note, as I was looking for the author's website so I wouldn't have to link to amazon for a summary, I discovered that she's also in the doll hobby and I'd been running across her pictures/dolls for years.  Small world!)

stacirose - That cake is so cool!  Hope it was as tasty as it was picturesque.

elliot-anne - Amazing progress so far!  I would never have the patience for that sort of project.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch: PreSeason Studies
SPEW: n/a
House: Pufflehuff
Project Name: Library Badges
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: noodle-bug let me make the badges for the Library challenges, which tickled me pink since I'm a book-miner by trade.  The graphics for these badges were drawn from Victorian publications and circus Quidditch posters.  You can see the first badge at the link below, but there are two more to follow in the coming months.

Harry Potter Summer 2015 CraftAlong Library Challenge

I am in need of an intervention... this weekend I have just bought enough yarn to knit 6 hats for my Dad (for a birthday present) and a baby jacket, hat, booties and baby mitts for my BF's 1st child (due in October).

I thought I was supposed to be not buying craft things this year!!!

The trick is to start/finish your new yarn projects as soon as you can.  That way they don't really have time to become "stash."  Or so I justify things to myself...

Bushbaby - You are forgiven and that yarn looks good enough to eat.  Hope you have fun using it up!

Kookaloo Starr - Love all the cheerful colors in that afghan.  I'm sure the baby will love it!

And in general, I am highly amused by the stash migration going on in this thread.

It's been a while since I posted, so forgive the project dump.

In no particular order with no real explanation...

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pink Squares
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: When you're fabric has geometric patterns its pretty easy to see where you've made a mistake.  I had to put more effort into centering the bodice design making sure the hem was straight, and that the bodice and skirt met at a consistent point on the repeat all the way around the dress (although the gathers make it hard to see).

Another Advanced Studies Friday Post.

Back in the winter semester I proposed a transfiguration OWL turning hundreds of yards of lace-weight yarn into a shawl.  That has not gone well.  At All.  To the point where my feelings towards the project are along the lines of "kill it with fire" every time I try to pick up the project. 

Therefore, I would like to shelve that project (perhaps to be revisited at a later date, perhaps to be consigned into oblivion), and propose a new OWL.


~*OWL PROPOSAL*~
OWL Subject & Option(if available): Astronomy, Option 3
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Zig Zag Socks
Brief Description: For my OWL I would like to knit a pair of socks (estimated time frame three to four weeks).  The pattern I have chosen is mostly stockinette but has a subtle twisted-stitch zig-zag running down the side.  The yarn looks blue from a distance, but upon closer inspection has many different shades of blue and the occasional purple running through it.

The painters tape/paper towel method is a lot like the human scaled duct-tape bodice technique.  The basic idea is that you wrap your doll in a layer or two of paper towels, then wrap it tightly with thin strips of tape around the torso and shoulders.  Then you can draw the shape of your pattern pieces directly on the tape and *very carefully* cut through the tape and towels.  There are a few extra steps before you arrive at the finished pattern, but it's a good way to turn a 3D shape into 2D paper.

Here are some instructions.  They're for a larger sized doll and may be more detail oriented than you want, but the pictures are always helpful.

Shout out for Ticket to Ride!  (And also for cooperative games - love me some Pandemic)

Moonflame - I love your corsets!!!  I've been meaning to try the paper towel and painters tape patterning method, and your lovely stuff might be the kick in the pants I need to give it a try.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Earthworm
SPEW: Nope
House: Hooflepoof
Project Name: Sunset Dress
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I think this might have been the brightest fabric scrap in my stash.  Plus the organic stripes of the batik kind of remind me of the rings around earthworms...

Oh wow!  All that from stash?  That's amazingly well coordinated.  I love the blue beaded spiral.
