41  Re: Preparing for the Summer Nerd Games (discussion thread) in Craftalongs by teaandcraft on: May 15, 2013 02:27:14 AM
I've been stalking this thread since the beginning, and I've decided that even though I probably won't get much done until uni break, I'd like to give it a go! Some of my IRL friends and I want to make up Team "Nerdy Ladies" - we'll be crafting projects inspired by our favourite female characters. @Pinkleo I hope that's not too broad? Let me know if it is! ^_^



We've got a fancy team badge, so now I'm counting on my friends to appear here and comment so I don't just look crazy ~_^ And of course if anyone would like to join us, that would be awesome!!

Class: Potions
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Siiiigggnnnnsss
Brief Description: I'm getting ready to decorate for Halloween and I've been really enjoying researching zombies - a creature that can be a result of a poorly executed Inferni ritual. So I took some new wood, paint, and an aging potion and made this warning sign. Hopefully the Muggles will take care this Halloween ...

Class: Transfiguration
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Button heart
Brief Description: For this class I stuck to my self-imposed challenge of doing more embroidery and made this simple, but very sweet, button heart. It was very easy to make, albeit time-consuming. I drew a heart on my fabric using chalk then placed buttons around the edges before filling it in. I used pins to keep the buttons in place while I sorted out the arrangement, which was good because I had to change it around a few times before it was right! I also added a couple of buttons overtop of the first layer, to cover up some of the gaps and make the heart more visually interesting. I hope you like it!



P.S. Patty - those donuts look AMAZING! I totally want to get a donut maker now! ^_^

*emerges from the dungeons sniffling and blinking at the bright lights*

Hi everyone, I've been lurking for a while due to some health problems and family issues but I'm back and ready to share my latest project - huzzah! Before I do that though, I'd like to say WOW at all the great projects on this thread! I'd especially like to mention AntBee's awesome cat blanket (go Slytherin, woo!) and Chughes' amazing cake (I'm seriously in awe of it!) and TARDIS yarn dispenser. I'm really loving all the nerdy projects on here! Now, on to the project ...

Class: Astronomy
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Starry, starry night
Brief Description: I used navy blue cotton fabric, metallic silver thread, and glow-in-the-dark perler beads to make this Sagittarius constellation embroidery. I'm really happy with how it turned out and how it looks glowing in the dark of the dungeons ... but I couldn't take a good photo of that so you'll just have to use your imagination ~_^



I hope you like it!

I'd also like to participate in the voting challenge, so here's my bit: I live in Australia where (as previously mentioned by whenindoubtsew) voting is compulsory. I remember when I was about eleven, the Muggles held a referendum on whether Australia should stay a part of the Commonwealth or become a republic. I think this is when I first became aware of the huge impact voting could have on our lives and culture and since I've been old enough to vote, I've tried to take care in my decisions by researching the views of various parties before voting. If you're lucky enough to live in a country where you CAN vote, you SHOULD! ^_^

Class: Arithmacy
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Fresh Baked Pi
Brief Description: I am so, so happy with how this project turned out! ^_^ I used pink fabric and black embroidery thread to make this nerdy, vintage-inspired embroidery piece. Before I started sewing, I covered the embroidery hoop with washi tape - I think it looks super cute! ^_^

I brought the image I used from here: http://www.iclipart.com/search.php?keys=176776&id=104_10_3_17 (should anyone else want to use it ^_^)






P.S. @Naantje - you have been super busy! I love all of your projects, but especially the clever idea of dill & shortening cubes and the cute flowers ^_^ Great job representing Slytherin House!

Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Sparkly Skulls
Brief Description: I'm getting ready for Halloween and so, with a simple charm, I made these sparkly skulls. I think they'll look great in the dungeons ... as long as we keep them away from any Nifflers!



P.S. Great job on your mitts and cacti Ant Bee!

P.P.S. I love the Firefly in a Jar AllyCatAria!

Class: Herbology
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Free Hugs!
Brief Description: Inspired by a pin I added to my embroidery board ages ago, I made this cute little cactus hoop. I'm really happy with how it turned out - especially the handwriting! It's a big improvement from my first embroidery ... ^_^ Here's the inspiration link: http://www.craftysheep.net/2012/03/21/cacti-need-love-too/



I've been loving everyone's projects - I think this is the best thread on Craftster! ^_^

Class: Defence Against the Dark Arts
House: Slytherin
Project Name: A Clove A Day
Brief Description: For this craft I was inspired by a new Muggle saying that I learnt, and my love of garlic-infused foods - yum! ^_^ Everyone knows that Vampires have an aversion to garlic, and remembering this simple fact could one day save your life! ~_^



Class: Flying
House: Slytherin
Project Name: My Sunshine
Brief Description: I love flying - and today was a perfect day for it! The sun was shining, there was a slight breeze, and the grounds looked lovely far below me ^_^ So I thought I would craft something featuring the sun and one of my favourite songs to sing (badly) to my husband ~_^ I used a pattern from Urban Threads. This is my first hoopla, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out ^_^

Challenge: Reducio
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Mustard yellow Blythe Hat
Brief Description: I was practicing a spell to make a crochet hat, but something went seriously wrong - it turned out tiny! But, happily it is just the right size for a Blythe doll, so it's still going to get some use ^_^



Challenge: Detention with Snape
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Haberdashery storage
Brief Description: I started altering this storage box ages ago, but had only done the first coat of wood stain! But with Snape looming over me I found the motivation to finish it - and finish it quick! ~_^



I can't wait for next semester - the O.W.L. challenges look great! ^_^ I wish I had made a Portkey so I could have finished all of the challenges for this semester ... maybe next time! ^_^
