Warning: 3 more projects done - I actually have more but forgot to take pictures-tomorrow I will at work so I can finish the tutorials for all of the projects that I did.

A messenger bag/lunch bag - I used radiantex as the batting


A little "Off to school" outfit I did as part of our display at work.  Now we wait to see when we get to go back, but I will be applying for numerous positions this week despite the strike, so please keep your fingers crossed:)

A lunch tote for the work display.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Defence Against the Dark Arts (DADA):
SPEW: (If your item is for charity, enter that here; if not leave blank or add n/a.)
House:Hufflepuff
Project Name: Washable lunch bag
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)  An apple applique shirt
Project Picture:


Tutorial:
Apple Applique shirt
1)   Cut body of apple from a pink scrap, stem from brown, and leaf from green.  Make sure all fabric has been pressed
2)   Use a glue stick to temporarily glue you apple motif in place on the shirt.  Let sit 30 minutes or more.
3)   Use a zig zag stitch and matching thread to sew around the apple, stem, and leaf.
4)   Use a needle to pull all threads to inside.  Tie a knot with loose threads and trim excess threads.
5)   Wash with soap to wash out glue, dry in a dryer to get a raggy look around your applique.
6)   Enjoy your stylish new top!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic (HoM)
SPEW: (If your item is for charity, enter that here; if not leave blank or add n/a.)
House:Hufflepuff
Project Name: Messenger bag/lunch bag
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)  When I was 12, my Mom taught me how to sew ,the fabric was a fuschia floral print twill (I hated pink, but the idea of learning to sew won me over & when finished I actually loved the dress and wore it until I outgrew it).  I had to do a project for work so I chose this pink and orange cotton canvas and decided to make a lunch bag that doubles as a messenger bag (I don't like carrying multiple bags when I am teaching).  Again, I wasn't keen on the colours but now that it's done, I love it!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
SPEW: (If your item is for charity, enter that here; if not leave blank or add n/a.)
House:Hufflepuff
Project Name: Lunch bag
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) What's more important than a growing child's tummy during the school day?  I created this lunch bag from a couple fat quarters, and will have a tutorial for it in the very near future.
Project Picture:


And a quick question, I have a photo I love, that I didn't take, and I am not in it, can I still use it for Muggle Studies?

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: 9 Hawaiian outfits
Brief Description: My oldest niece - Miss G, just turned 8 Shocked and had a Hawaiian theme birthday party, so I created a simple "after swimming dress" for each of them (sadly, we've all been sick, and the day of her party was cold and rainy while we were camping, so they haven't been worn yet), they also each got a tank top and skorts - which again, too cold, so weren't worn on her actual b-day, but were perfect for the unplanned sleepover, and same story with the jammies - only got pics of the nightgown on Miss E,  Miss G and Miss M asked for shorts and tank tops instead, but changed before I got pics.









Class/Challenge/House Pride: DADA
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Chocolate cheesecake
Brief Description: Miss G asked for a chocolate cheesecake for her birthday so I whipped this up and decorated at camp (I forgot the pink icing, but the red outline was enough to make her happy!)


TUTORIAL for yummy cheesecake:
1) Use the recipe found here https://www.verybestbaking.com/recipes/106180/no-bake-chocolate-cheesecake-pie/detail.aspx - except make it in a spring form pan instead of a pie crust
2)Find a motif that you would like to put on the cake and print it off
3)When cake has set, either free hand the motif onto the cake if you feel confident, or cut out motif, lay it on cake, trace around it with a  toothpick, remove paper, and go over the lines with icing.
4)Embellish with sugar candies, sprinkles, pastilles, candles, and anything else you desire.
5)Enjoy!!!!

P.S - tastes super good frozen too:)

Here are 3 items I made for our gift bags.  There are 60 of each.  Water bottle lables, sleep masks, and book marks.  A few other items are already packed in so pics will have to wait until September.

I updated my main list, but here's a pic for those who would like to see.  Missing outfit from picture is the swimsuit

I made 3 of each outfit.  The mermaid was self designed as was the ballerina, the snowsuit and cowgirl outfit came from simplicity patterns.  The birthday girl was thrilled, and the next set of doll stuff will likely be for Easter (I fill the eggs with the doll stuff since my oldest niece isn't candy crazy but her 2 younger sisters won't eat anything but candy, so most eggs have toys/craft kits in them.

Here's the craft room, I was planning to get it cleaned and organized before beginning any projects, but I do need to finish some birthday party stuff before Friday, so I will clean some and craft some until then, but  weekend and the following wee will be time to clean.
