Holy moley! the projects on here a killer! Great job everyone!
Class/Challenge/House Pride: DADA
House: Roar ROAR Gryffindor!
Project Name: hinkypunk lantern
Brief Description:while out on the school grounds the other day i happened to see a Hinkypunk along the edge to the black forrest. i watched for several minutes as it darted around the trees and then disappeared into the woods. I desided that I wanted to make a glowing lantern but was having a hard time finding a glass globe that I liked...until i happened on a storage room while hiding from some rather bad tempered 7th year Slytherins who had the audacity to accuse me of stealing their Potions essays and using them to line the floor of the owlery... All I'll say on the subject is at least  the owls seemed to appreciate it.  Wink
Anywhoo i saw a globe from an old wall fixture that the mate had broke so I carried it back to the dorm and made a lantern like  beaded wire cage around it and modge podged some squares of text from an old book along the lines of the base. I love how it turned out!

i wish i could get a better close up of the beads

here it is lit up

Hello everyone! Iv been seeing everything thats been turned in but sadly Iv been too busy to add my two cents. My mom had a triple bypass done almost 4 weeks ago and the drama around that was pretty intense. Thankfully she did well from the surgery and things have calmed down some. So heres my first project!

Class/Challenge/House Pride:CoMC
Project Name:Whoooo..hoop (yes its a play on the noise the tardis makes lol)
Brief Description: Right now if you ask me what comes to mind when i think of the color blue...you"ll get nerded out when I yell "The TARDIS!!!" So when I read the CoMC assignment I imediatly wanted to make a hoop but didnt know what i wanted on it. i had bought some fine plastic canvas at a yard sale a few weeks ago and cross stitched a tardis on it useing a pattern from online (I need to find it again)...well once finished i couldnt deside what to make with this tiny tardis...A pin? necklace charm?...nothing seemed right till i came across some stary fabric in my stash and said "OMG thats it! now wheres my glow in the dark thread?"

every white thread on the tardis glows so theres an outline of the tardis. the big white stars glow and some random dots are skattered agout to fill it in...i wish I could get a pic of it glowing...does anyone have any advice?

Hello everyone! Iv been really busy this semester...just not crafting  Sad but now that i have my own little space to craft hopefully I can pick up the pace. I have so many ideas!
Class/Challenge/House Pride: Accio Books!
Project Name:
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I will admit that I hang on to stuff for way too long....the huge yard sale my mom and I just had is proof of that. and when read the accio book challenge I knew it was perfect for me. I had several young adult and tween books like Sweet valley high and Goosebumps series along with some different stuff thrown in and I ended up finding 30 all together! It was really neat to browes some of the old goosebumps "find your own adventure" books while picking which ones to send.

Alrighty! Heres an update on my owl. Iv not done as many as i should but Im easily distracted.lol

Now an assignment Iv been working on for a while
Class/Challenge/House Pride:History of magic
Project Name:Bicycle girl zombie
Brief Description: Ok this may be a stretch on the requirements lol.but I know thats not a big deal. I LOVE the walking dead and one of my favorite zombies is bicycle girl so I thought Id step away from the cute amigurumi and try to make a scary one. This fits the assignment because an infected person developes a fever as part of the turning process and then the ice part of it is the cold fear that walkers make us feel. Her eyes are standard black safety eyes that i modpodged white tissue paper over.

OWL Subject & Option(if available):Transfiguration
Project Name:Fireside throw...a.k.a my first big project!
Brief Description:
My family has been saying that I have too much yarn..."Nahh" I scoff as a mountian of yarn falls out of its bin after its been rifled through....Ok maybe I have too much BUT theres nothing more annoying than for inspiration to hit me on the head and have to wait a month (exagerated) before I can get to the craft store. Iv never crocheted anything big mostly small bags, dolls and some hats so a weeks worth of searching came up witha a pattern from a copy of Crochet Today (jan/feb 2009). Granny hexes, little ends to weave if i do it right and I get to be random in the color choices. Im planning on doing 3 to 4 motifs a night or more as I get faster...I still havent desided if i want it as big as the original with 127 motifs but by my math i could be done with it by the end of term.
for thouse of you on Ravelry heres a link to the pattern info and a pic.
and heres an added pic of what ive done so far after two nights

and heres the "Mountain"...Edward! get out of my yarn! lol

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Gryffindor January extra credit!
Project Name:Lunas lion hat
Project Page Link (if available):Link to spikefans post.
Brief Description: Im lucky to have two amigirumis from Spikefan. A Hermione and Luna so when I saw my houses extra credit was to make something with a lion I thought immediatly of Lunas lion hat but I wasnt really in the mood to make a large Hat for myself so...I got the Idea to make some accsessorys for the dolls Spikefan made! I used Ana paula rimolis pattern for a baby lion as the head and sewed it to a beanie. The result looks absolutly cute and obnoxoius.lol. Then I desided to make house scarfs and robes for the both of them. Lunas is still in progress so shes wearing Hermiones but I couldnt wait to show it off....Keep in mind I only made the Lion hat, robe and scarf.and I'll be shareing this post with Spikefan.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Holiday recipe challenge
Project Name:Orange dream cookies, Macaroons and peanut butter kiss cookies
Project Page Link:orange dreams http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Orange-Dreams
Brief Description:My mom makes a ton of cookies and candies every christmas to take to work (3 different places), chiropractors office and family functions. This year she had me make 3 batches of cookies. Usually Im all over the kiss cookies but I have to say the orange dream were scrumptious! I couldnt find links to the kiss cookie recipe, mom uses the one from the bisquick book that shes had for ages...and im not sure where she found the maccaroon recipe last yr but it is supposed to have mini chocolate chips in it but not everyone liked the chips so she had me leave them out (frankly i missed the chocolate) lol

9  My first bookbinding attempt in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by sakuracat23 on: January 11, 2013 11:16:43 AM
Hello there! I don't believe that Iv ever posted on this board before usually I'm in the Crochet boards or at the Harry Potter craftalong.Which is where I first posted this project. A few days ago I desided to buy a travel sized sketch book like the ones Id seen at walmart and just personalise it. but when they ran out i just bought a pad of paper.later that night I happened upon a bookbinding tute on pinterest which i then nosed around on youtube and found a great tute for a coptic stitched sketch book http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2FRKbQI2kY and I just dived in! I followed the tute and added some fabric and scrap paper to the covers...after i bound the book (I wouldn't recommend doing it in that order but I couldn't find some of my supplies and I was too excited to wait). Also i needed more than 2 lines of stitching but I didn't think that one through very well lol. So I glued and folded a black bit of fabric to reinforce the spine.Since I'm always loosing my pencils, a book strap was born out of the cut off hem from the sleeve of an old black tee. all i had to do was clip a small hole in the tube created by the hem and stash the pencil inside! I'm definitely going to make more of these I love the fact that it lies flat and i got to use one of my fave fabrics. The fabric glue i used on the black part left streaks but the clear school glue I used for the rest worked great
anyway heres a pic. What do ya think? not bad for a first try I think.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Horcrux hunt (Riddles diary)
project link: heres the tutorial i used
Project Name:my first attempt at bookbinding
Brief Description: i wanted a more personalised sketch book to carry with me. originaly I was just going to buy a boring black one at walmart and customize it but they were out so i bought a standard pad to use...later that evening i was browesing on pinterest when i saw some tutes for making your own sketch book and i desided to give it a try. Its kinda sloppy but pretty decent for my first try and I love using it.i used clear school glue, fabric glue (which left streaks on my black bit  Sad ) embroidery floss, an old drawing pad back for the cover, fabric scraps and some scrapbook paper .I liked soing the coptic stitch on the binding but i wanted to cover it up to protect the ends of the signatures so i folded and glued a black piece on the end..plus! i made a book strap/pencil holder out of a cut off hem from an old black t-shirt.cut the hem off wich left me with a tube, made a small hole so i could stick the pencil in  and ta da!
