21  Harry Potter Shirts in Stenciling: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: March 24, 2016 06:33:51 PM
While my daughter was home for Spring Break, we decided DIY Harry Potter shirts were necessary for our annual HP binge-watch. We made the stencils from freezer paper and used fabric medium mixed with acrylic paint. Very easy, and super cheap, too! Yes, I sent my kid home with completely wrinkled shirts. She needs to learn to iron stuff herself. Or not.

22  Ladybird and Berries Stumpwork in Needlework: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: March 19, 2016 09:38:40 PM
A tiny, tiny stumpwork piece made for the ever-wonderful cackle. I didn't take a picture for size reference, but the embroidered area is about 1.5". The blackberries are made from seed beads and the ladybird is around 1/4".

testing, testing

Ohoh, it worked! Maybe the technical difficulties have corrected themselves! I received my phenomenal package from cackle yesterday, and I'm going to get right down to the pictures!
A beautifully sculpted and painted flower that fits into my hand. Amazing!


So delicate and incredibly detailed! Only about 1.5" long. Wow.

And also- even though we agreed to one item and she's already over the limit- this piece that moved me to tears.

sideways tears, apparently. Please post a nice pic, cackle!

Sometimes you just see a work of art and it moves you, and when I saw cackle's The Red, Red Poppies I squeaked out some tears. And then it is in my hands and I bawl like a frikking baby.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart, cackle.  Kiss

My computer is hating me!!! It refuses to load pictures onto Craftster and now it won't even load the homepage.  Cry

And the pics I took were really, really good considering I took them. I shall retake pics tomorrow and post them from another computer (and NOT delete them from the sd card). I'm sorry cackle. I think your awesomeness broke my mac

Hang on to your sorting hats people, because rockingbearranch sent a most amazing package, all of which I cannot keep! All of these remarkable items are being sent to live with Kid #1, who has recently begun collecting HP items (that aren't made by her mother). This is a great way to begin! RBR sent all handmade items that will undoubtably delight my daughter. I am so very jealous and want to keep all the things. Oh, I am going to post a trillion pictures, just so you know.

Holey Cauldron bottoms! She has sent a wand, cauldron, a Welcome Feast doughnut, quill (so cool), portkey hoopla, a Cornish Pixie handblown egg, kitty tea plate, feather printed fabric, numerous owl paper bookmarks and cat and toad bookmark, as well as a postcard of the Weasley Family on holiday. Not included was the Authentic Hogwarts Acceptance letter, Course Book requirements page, or the "Other Equipment" page she sent, all on beautiful paper which was signed. I will take a picture tomorrow and post them. Very authentic.

RBR crafted an amazing Hufflepuff wand in great detail.

My computer is refusing to rotate the egg but you can see the hand drawn pixie rockingbearranch reluctantly (?) drew on there. She says they creep her out, but my daughter is quite fond of them, and this little guy is a treasure.

That is the inside of the Skele-Gro tin with owl bookmarks and the cat and toad bookmark. Keeping that first owl bookmark for myself.

The first hoopla for her budding HP collection!

Thank you, thank you RBR for such an amazing package. My daughter will be over the moon when she receives this. I appreciate it greatly!

27  For the Birds Shadowboxes in Completed Projects by pottermouth on: February 15, 2016 04:46:31 PM
How adorable are these tiny houses? They are so small, about 3.5" to 4.5" tall, and would make excellent quick gifts. Mine are going to my bird loving grandmother, but the houses could easily be for fairies, made into Dia de los Muertos altars, or a bitty Alice house. (I'm getting more because to me they really scream Haunted House!)

I made minuscule embroideries that hang from a twig inside the house, and added sheet moss to the roofs. Roofs is such an odd word! The plural really should be rooves, I think.

Here is a list of supplies for the houses I used, mostly from Alpha Stamps. What kind of house would you make?

29  Hagrid's Hut in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: February 09, 2016 02:44:27 PM
Here is my second free-motion embroidery made for the enchanting tapestrymlp:

While searching for ideas, I came across Stuart Craig's concept art and knew right away that I wanted to free-motion embroider the drawing. It has that sketchy look that I love, and I try to emulate that when I hand embroider things. But this image seemed like a good candidate for another go at free-motion embroidery, my second attempt, and I thought it could always be pitched if I screwed it up and then just hand embroider the thing. From having done it once before, I decided to order a darning foot for the sewing machine and save myself a lot of fidgety hassle. Man, that made a HUGE difference! And I didn't sew over my fingers. Yay. The finished piece fits into an 8x10 frame (I sent that, too. Who wants an unfinished project?) and stole that first picture from tapestrymlp.

That pic mine. can't you tell?

Lessons learned-

1. Breaking down and spending that whopping $9 on the darning foot made free-motion embroidery so much easier. Who would've thought?

2. Sewing shadows is hard.

HERE is what she sent me!  Kiss
