3451  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Decked Out for Deathly Hallows Swap? on: June 23, 2010 09:48:42 AM
For those of you who haven't heard of it, there is a REAL Dumbledore's Army out there!  The Harry Potter Alliance is a group dedicated to helping people all over the world, fight causes like global warming, poverty, and genocide, regardless of race, gender or sexuality.  One of their most recent projects has been to send 5 planes full of 80,000 pounds of critical medical supplies to Haiti, to help them heal and rebuild.  Incidentally the planes each had a name: Harry, Hermione, Ron, DFTBA ("Don't Forget to Be Awesome") and Dumbledore. 

There are chapters of the HP Alliance all over the country, and even a few international ones.  You can learn more on their website: http://www.thehpalliance.org/

Also, any of you who have a Facebook can help right now, with just a few clicks of your mouse.  The HP Alliance is in a competition to win $250,000 in the Chase Community Giving Challenge.  Help them by casting your VOTE HERE!!!  Voting ends on July 12th, and the HP Alliance is competing against over 500,000 organizations.  Those are some pretty tough odds for a small group, determined to do the right thing.  Show them just how many D.A. members are out there, willing to lend support!

Dumbledore's Army, still recruiting!

Bias tape is your friend!  Just remember to pre-curve it.  Take your iron, and gently curve your bias tape to the shape you want, ironing along the curve as you go.  If it is not as curvy as you want it, just curve some more and iron again.  If you're really going super curvy, hold the iron a little above the tape, and let the steam do it's job.  A bit of steam will help the inner curve from being all lettuce-edged.  And when in absolute despair, hand baste it first, then stitch by machine. Cheesy

...all that being said, it's never perfect.   Wink

Here's another quick and easy little pattern: Streak of Sunshine Quilt.  It only needs eight 4 1/2" wide strips.  Cheesy

at least being addicted to wisting isn't a bad thing.  it doesn't take up space in your house like all my crafts seem to.  Cheesy

Too true Krafty!  I love my wist, and I am constantly adding to it.  Every few weeks I go through and clean it out.  I do in fact wist some stuff specifically for certain swaps.  I actually found it helped A LOT in the Bead Soup Swaps. 

I just went through another round of cleaning wist-house.  I end up with several things that are very similar, without realizing it, so I usually go through and edit down to my favorite of certain items.   But then I do something silly like go take a look at Pinkleo's wist, or any one of my other Craftster crushes, and it starts all over again!
