Challenge: Horcrux hunt: To find and destroy, create something that represents or is inspired by Lily Potter
House:Gryffindor
Project Name: Gold fish into a flower transfiguration
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.ravelry.com/projects/FoxySam/gold-fish-into-a-flower/photos
Brief Description: I had to give this a go as soon as I saw the name Lily Potter...so I made the representation of the spell she did and gave to Professor Slughorn to keep...a lovely flower that turns into a fish as soon as it touched water...and here it is!

I figure it also fits under the class for Alchemy since it uses yellow, white and black three of the colours gound in the stages of creating a philosophy stone to create my own work of fish/flower. So:
Class: Alchemy
House: Gryffyndor
Project: Use 2 or more of the colors found in the stages to produce a great work of your own.
I used three of the colours to create my own unique item of a flower that turns into a fish, won't make you live forever but I think kinda cool all the same  Grin

Photos:
















Hope you like it... Grin

Challenge: Geminio
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Tiny Travelling Teddies for twin girls (thought it was a perfect project for the geminio challenge since they are going to twin girls too...
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418561.0
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)
Got the idea off pinterest with the mice in the altoid tins...so someone very kindly sent me some altoid tins for me to use and then vwalla after a bit of sewing I made one teddy and then a quick spell and there were two, I am glad they came out slightly different in the colours but otherwise exactly the same.  The spell made things much easier instead of having to make two  Grin

Wow, so many great projects coming through, love the variety of projects they are all great and individual...awesom e!

4  Tiny Travelling Teddies in Mint Tins in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Foxy Sam on: January 01, 2013 10:38:01 PM
I have made these for christmas presents for twin girls who like to carry around little handbags, so thought then these little teddies could go with them. I have made them blankets, pillows and even a hot water bottle, all to fit in an altoid tin (we don't have these here in NZ so I am very lucky to have got some from a swap...)






The teddies are hand sewn and embroidered as are the hot water bottles, however the blankets and pillows are machine sewn.




Here is one before sewn up. They both have sewn hearts on their bottoms...hehehe...



Got the idea off the internet with the mice in the mint tins...we don't get good mint tins like these here in NZ so I was very lucky to get some in a swap so that I could use the tins for this project and give them as gifts to two little girls, I hope they will love them and enjoy playing with them.

Class: Transfiguration - Avis Spell
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Little Birdy Badge
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)
After practicing for a while I have finally achieved the Avis spell...here is my first whole birdy...lots of feathers from previous attempts, but that's okay i can use those for stuffing or something.

Project Picture:

Avis Birdy Felt badge


You can see some of the foxes and elephants I have been working on too, just because I had made some like them in the past and really wanted to make some more. 

Actually maybe I could use it for the geminio challenge...though have another idea for that too...will see...

That bread looks lovely jennieingram! Great idea for a gift too, cool.

Class/Challenge: Potions homework to practice perfecting the shrinking solution
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Shrinking Solution
Link to more project photos of each tiny item:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418441.0

Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)
To practice the shrinking solution I first used it on inanimate objects, beginning with a book, which is fairly small to start with, then I progressed to my travel case/chest (actually this was an accident, I spilt some on it as I walked past...must perfect the swelling solution next to fix this issue), then I went on to shrink the TV at home...ha!  still works just very tiny...and then I wanted to do the main event and an animate object...A DRAGON!  So I went outdoors to find me a dragon and came across this lovely common Welsh Green dragon, convinced him to eat a steak I had laced with the shrinking solution and vwala a lovely little dragon that I can now carry around in my pocket!

Project Pictures:















Hope I pass my assignments... Grin this is fun...hope you don't mind me joining in so late...

Love the earmuffs you made FreakieGeekie, lovely colour too!

7  Some mini tiny crochet including mini dragon in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Foxy Sam on: December 30, 2012 01:57:51 AM
As part of the Harry Potter Craftalong I made these:
To practice the shrinking solution I first used it on inanimate objects, beginning with a book, which is fairly small to start with, then I progressed to my travel case/chest (actually this was an accident, I spilt some on it as I walked past...must perfect the swelling solution next to fix this issue), then I went on to shrink the TV at home...ha!  still works just very tiny...and then I wanted to do the main event and an animate object...A DRAGON!  So I went outdoors to find me a dragon and came across this lovely common Welsh Green dragon, convinced him to eat a steak I had laced with the shrinking solution and vwala a lovely little dragon that I can now carry around in my pocket!

Started with my book:








Oops I shrunk my HP travelling case with sneakascope inside






Oops...I shrunk the TV!


(It is also going to be the head of a robot I am making...with pins for antenna at the moment)




For the shrinking spell, advanced after the book, travelling case and TV to the animated creature of a giant dragon! Well used to be giant now he is just under 2 inches tall and 1 inch wide, not counting his wing span...worked a charm...well a potion.






I embroidered on his nose and eyes and did extra crochet details of the contrast colours for spikes, wing outlines and belly.








It was fun crocheting tiny things...especially the dragon... Grin

I have been completing some more projects, Christmas presents for family especially. 

Like this for my nephew:

Here is the Car storage and road mat roll I made for my nephew for Christmas. I used sewing, applique and fabric paint as well as store bought cars to complete the project...oh and the plug in end cut off some ear phones for the fuel pump which he seems to love most!
(more photos on the toys board)

And for a friend's new little baby:


And for my neice a donkey and giraffe:


And a Scottish Viking for my friend who ordered one:

(more photos on the amigurumi board)

10  Viking (a Scottish Viking in fact) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Foxy Sam on: December 28, 2012 11:24:50 PM
Here is the Scottish Viking I made on request for a friend.
I used the body pattern from the pillow pixie elf by Peggytoes: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/crocheting/toy/pillow-pixi...

though I changed the ears and made the rest up, the hair took ages but I wanted it to look wild and woolly, which I think looked great. Then I did a sewn kilt and felt shirt as well as a sporran and a kilt pinwhat do you think? My friend loved it! oh and a polymer clay viking axe and viking hammer with bamboo handles.



Here he is whilst his outfit was in progress...but still has his shirt on to keep his dignity (o= ha!


with kilt on but without sash at this stage...


Close up of some of his details...


His back


with sash


with viking hat and shield


a close look at his eyes and eye brows


another close up this time of his kilt pin and pouch


with his shield






I made them out of polymer clay and bamboo sticks.




With his tools/weapons:






I also made detachable genitals as she wanted some for a laugh but not all the time so that her kids wouldn't see, but I didn't take a photo of them...they had the hook velcro on them so that they just stuck to the wool when wanting to.   Grin

What do you think of him?
