1  Free Motion Embroidery Owl in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by pottermouth on: October 15, 2014 01:38:04 PM
So I know you know about thisbirdsabsurd's Snarky Pillow and her equally amazing Little Red and BBW free motion embroidery pieces, and I was completely in awe of how she made them. The sketchy effect that is produced and the idea of drawing with a sewing machine had me itching to try it. After a bit of research, a lot of tension adjusting on my machine, and finding a pretty simple pattern, I gave it a go. Thanks for introducing me to free motion embroidery, thisbird!

2  Stenciled Owl Pillow in Halloween Decor and Parties by pottermouth on: October 15, 2014 01:20:25 PM
Here's a pillow that I made for Mistress Jennie to use in her newly decorated craft room. The front is a freezer paper stenciled owl and the back is this fantastic witch fabric I happened upon in the remnant bin at Joann's.

3  Pumpkin Cart in Halloween Decor and Parties by pottermouth on: October 11, 2014 10:55:05 AM
That plastic rat has popped up in the oddest places in my house over the past year. I decided to give him a job.

NEWT Subject: Transfiguration
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Molly Weasley's Big Arse Tree Skirt
Project Page Link (if available): Pattern Here
Brief Description: Ten skeins of yarn + hours and hours + Bleak House and North and South + coffee - magic = one Hagrid sized tree skirt. This thing is a monster! Made for our own dear Headmistress in the Back To Hogwarts swap.

Here's her pic because I found it impossible to photograph.

5  Teensy-Weensy Greenhouse in Completed Projects by pottermouth on: October 10, 2014 06:59:16 PM
My eyes!!! This has to be the smallest miniature I've ever made. The base is about 2" square and it's somewhere around 1" tall. Inside you'll find three miniscule tables, potted plants, a climbing vine, some seed bags, pots on the floor, and shrubbery. One of the pots has been tipped and there is a sprinkling of soil on the floor. The pots are made from seed beads and the shrubs are railroad miniature bushes. I added some flowers with acrylic paint and a tree on the back.

A fun Hallowe'enie hoop for the lovely Mistress Jennie. I happened to have some variegated purple/black yarn in the stash, so the crocheted border was added.

Woohoo! After weeks and weeks of only being able to glance at what's going on, I finally had the opportunity to read each post. You lot have been creative! And busy! I'm ready to contribute to this semester, at last.

Class: Apparition
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Ridiculously Tiny Herbology Classroom
Brief Description: I remembered the three D's of Apparition during construction of this greenhouse. Destination: Herbology class. Determination:  to go as micro as my old eyes could handle. Deliberation: the selections of natural plants and their placement was purposeful. The greenhouse was done in three stages: 1. Plan 2. Construct 3. Recover ocularly.

Class: Astronomy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Mini Mouse (ha.)
Brief Description: Tackling the unknown. Hmmm. I don't know polymer clay. At all. I usually burn the bejesus out of it and we have to evacuate for a few hours. I chose to attempt the medium again, this time in the form of a speckish rat. After painstakingly sculpting it with a toothpick, I baked it, then painted it in a semi-realistic way. (Stand back and squint. You'll see how remarkably real it is.)

Class: Flying
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Wizard's Desk
Brief Description: This project began as an approximately 2.5" x 4" salvaged wood block. It was covered in paper (wood!), given some mini books made from paper and cereal boxes (more wood), and then given legs from a mini figure drawing model (yep, wood...but you'll have to trust me because I took the photos before adding them). There's even a (wooden) toothpick wand. Again, trust me it is there.

Here's a link to it since the images are on another computer: Wizard's Desk Scroll through to see other views, if you want.

Class: Transfiguration
House: RAvenclaw
Project Name: Hooo You Lookin' At?!
Brief Description: Look! It's an owl! Something went wrong during the spell and I ended up with my very first free motion embroidery piece instead of opera glasses. Gotta work on that.

There's a bit more but it seems my mother senses are tingling and I must investigate. It's way too quiet right now...

My swap partner received her hoopla, so now I can appropriately share it.

Lindy, you'd be so proud of me...I actually used my Silhouette for the pattern. The quote is in the online shop and I printed it out to use as a pattern. Only 4,997 more Silhouette projects to do before the cost is justified. Yay!

9  Lil' Witch altered block in Halloween Decor and Parties by pottermouth on: October 07, 2014 06:33:25 PM
rackycoo gave me some blank blocks some time ago, and I got around to altering one of the bitty ones this afternoon. It is around 1" x 1 3/4".

I gained access to the teenager's room (scary!) and found a beetle while cleaning the window.

Ms. Jennie! (may I call you that?) This is gorgeous! I wish I could have seen pottermouth's face when she opened this up. You are awesome.

My face? It sort of looked like this:

But without the beard.
