Project Name: Holy Stickpins, Sister!
Brief Description: This cute little nun planter has been hanging around with no real purpose, so why not a pincushion? Vintage planter+fabric+wool batting=something useful!

I've got a lot of catching up to do- everyone has been busy! Off to read all of these pages!

Got home late, late, late last night and saw my OAT from AugustBell waiting for me. Oh boy, did she ever outdo herself! I squee'd like a prepubescent girl at a Justin Bieber concert!!! (Or whatever they listen to.) So much awesome in one box! Here it is!
First came some divinely scented Magical Healing Creme and Fairy Dust Skin Renew (I kinda want to eat it; is that bad?) and an awesome Hogwarts trunk! The trunk is so cool. And painted perfectly!

I opened the trunk and guess what was tucked inside!

I love these!

And these!

Don't forget these! Love them, too!

And a Dumbledore magnet of the Mirror of Erised. WHAT?!

AugustBell, I'll never be able to thank you enough. This was a remarkable gift and I love everything. It is 70+ degrees outside and I've been wearing Dumbledore's woolen socks all day. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!!

243  Gnome Tunnel Book in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by pottermouth on: March 20, 2013 08:59:54 AM
Yesterday I discovered tunnel books. I had to immediately try my hand at making one and came up with this.

I covered the top with a black sheet of paper and it added some depth:

 And from the top.

These books are addictive! So I suppose I should figure out how to properly make them!

pinkleo! Afghan! Beautiful!

Abbee- love the Dumbledore flag. The star on the end was a perfect touch.

Freakie- Snape! It hilarious that he is clothed in only his scarf. He is not amused.

noodle-bug- your Neville is perfect. I love him!

tia- The peek-a-box is a brilliant idea. Great repurposing!

Ant Bee- it's so tiny! And so cute! And so tiny!

Class: DADA

Project Name: My Patronus is a Gnome.
Brief Description: To honour my patronus, the humble gnome, I went with creating (for the first time) a tunnel book. Even though I had no idea what I was doing, I had the urge to do it, and here is the result.

In this one you can sort of see the "layers" of panels that are glued onto two accordion folded papers.

Class: Transfiguration
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Teeny Weeny Wabbits
Project Page Link (if available):Pattern from this book
Brief Description: To practice the Lapifors spell, I thought going small and beginning with a material I knew well would produce the best results. In my yarn stash were some yarn samples my mom had picked up for me after visiting an alpaca farm. These were the perfect colour for some palm-sized bunnies, especially if you happen to be six. The pattern came from my well loved The Children's Year craft book and for those of you who would like to knit up some quick bunnies, I'll be glad to post the pattern.

Had to make a duck and chicken, too.

246  Potter Puppet Pals Bins for Yarnies in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by pottermouth on: March 15, 2013 04:01:57 PM
I'm not sure if these belong here so please move if necessary!

For the OAHPT Swap I stitched up some yarn bins, a hook roll, a little notions bag, and a yarn dispenser thingie for my partner.
The Snape yarn dispenser has a draw string top and a grommet in the back to thread the yarn through (in hopes of avoiding tangled yarn!)

The hook roll had some excellent Hedwig fabric:

Here are the bins for yarn and project organization, all together:

247  Punk Rock Memory Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: March 15, 2013 12:48:52 PM
For some reason or another, I thought it was a fantastic idea to make a quilt out of DH's t-shirts that I had been secretly removing from circulation and squirreling away in the closet. What else was I going to do with them, right? Well, I've never quilted before and had to go at this project with a pair of scissors and a school ruler. This was very time consuming. I also didn't consider the weight of this thing so I had to sit on the floor to sew it. However, I am satisfied with the way it turned out. Seeing the images on the quilt are memorable to me in one way or another and maybe in 18 more years I'll have another stash of shirts that just need to be a quilt.  Wink

Before adding backing:

All done!

NEWT Subject: Muggle Studies
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Punk Rock Memory Quilt or: How I Learned to Not Quilt and Love Knitting
Brief Description: Bloody hell, I'm done!!! It's far from perfect (ob...viously), I learned a lot through the process (never again), and I am thrilled that it is finished (I need a nap now). Decided to use leftover fabric for the binding instead of pre-made and I think it produced a more finished look.
Here's a weird view. It's too heavy to hang in the doorway now.

This was supposed to be my "glad-I'm-done" face but it turned into the "ow-I-stubbed-my-toe" face.

And a close up.

Oh geez. I see a loose thread....

Class: Alchemy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Pumpkin Pasties
Project Page Link (if available):Recipe Here
Brief Description: So I went the safe route for Alchemy and cooked something. I was really eager to try out this Pumpkin Pastie recipe which is sirius-ly simple and quite tasty. However, when my family smells pumpkin they immediately think it's Pumpkin Wontons and were sorely disappointed when I presented the pasties. Instead of ice cream, I made whipped cream and I'll add that recipe, too.


For those of you who want to try something super delish, here is the Pumpkin Wonton recipe.

    1 cup canned pumpkin
    2 Tbs. maple syrup
    3 Tbs. light brown sugar
    1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
    16 packaged wonton wrappers
    Granulated sugar for dusting
    Ground cinnamon for dusting

    Preheat oven to 400F. In medium bowl, mix pumpkin, maple syrup, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice.
    Place one wonton wrapper flat on work surface. Spoon 1 Tbs. filling into center. Moisten edges of wonton with water and fold in half to form triangle. Press edges to seal. Repeat with remaining filling and wontons.
    Arrange filled wontons on ungreased baking sheet. Lightly coat wontons with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle each with sugar and cinnamon.
    Bake until golden, about 16 minutes. Turn and bake 2 more minutes. Set baking sheet on wire rack to cool.

Of course you can always deep fry them instead of baking and then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar afterward. This is where I don't tell you that I always fry them. Shhhh! The whipped cream is easy-

   Freeze mixing bowl and beater for 10 minutes. Remove from freezer and add one cup heavy whipping cream. Place frozen veggies under mixing bowl (I used tortellini today) and beat on med-high 'til soft peaks form. Add 1 or 2 teaspoons vanilla and 4 Tablespoons sifted confectioner's sugar and beat 'til stiff peaks form. Viola!

Now I have to go peek at everyone's assignments. I heard something about shoes....

250  Luna Lovegood's Radish Scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: March 02, 2013 04:10:35 PM
I have had Twinkie Chan's book in my hand at the book store countless times. Well, probably six times, but never bought it. Finally got it yesterday and made the radish scarf which reminds me of Luna Lovegood. I didn't have the right sized safety eyes so I stitched on some felt and added a wee smile. So cute!
The little smiley radish:
