Challenge: May Textbook
Team: Nerdy Ladies
Project Geekdom: Music
Bonus Points: Discovery, Nerdy
Project Name: Pon Pon Hair Bows
Brief Description: I was really stuck trying to think of something to do with Prime Numbers, but then I was inspired by watching "PonPonPon" by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, and decided to make two eyeball hair bows ^_^ I can't believe that I've never made bows before, they were so easy! I am definitely going to have to make some more ^_^ I was going to say that this project fit into my team's geekdom of Nerdy Ladies, since Kyary is a stage persona played by Kiriko Takemura but I'm not sure if J-Pop counts as nerdy, so I've put down music as this project's geekdom instead ^_^
Project Picture:

I'm finally on uni break down, so hopefully I will have more time for crafting and staying up-to-date on this thread! ^_^

@fiberalchemist - Love the fez and Iron Man mitts!
@gozer - Your shadowbox is great, and the shimmery background is perfect!
@ludi - I think maybe your eye embroidery is my favourite ever! It's so pretty! ^_^
@bunny1kenobi - Pandora's box is such a cool idea! Although I'd be a little nervous everytime I opened it ~_^
@noodle-bug - I love the simplicity of the birthday card you made - it really makes an impact. The weaving technique you did for the rainbow threads is really cool!
@pottermouth - OMG that Patronus Purse is AMAZING! Totally adore it!
@ant bee - I love your Sorting Hat block, and it's a clever interpretation of the challenge too! ^_^
@ohiodiygirl - Love the robot skirt! The little Spock monkey in the background is cute too! Did you make him? ^_^

Bonus Points: Discovery, Nerdy, Super Nerdy
Project Name: Holly Short Circle Skirt
Brief Description: Holly Short, of the LEPrecon, always carries an acorn with her in case she needs to quickly boost her magic levels. I found a vintage oval tablecloth in an op shop and was inspired to make a circle skirt in tribute to her! ^_^

Bonus Points: Nerdy, Super Nerdy
Project Name: Draculaura Cowl
Brief Description: Trebles are always my go-to crochet stitch, and this project is so easy, zombies could do it! ~_^ The hot pink, white, and black chunky yarn reminded me of Draculaura's awesome hair and so I made a cowl that even a monsterously fashionable pre-teen would be happy to wear ... maybe? ^_^

@pottermouth: I love your Draco amigurumi! The removable mask is super awesome!
@lovelymiss: OMG, your Star Trek curtain is AMAZING!
@roke45: Go team! Your hoop and windchime both rock!

I want to upload this quickly before I go to work, so I'll have to come back and comment on everyone's wonderful things! (OMG, you people are amazing!!)

Project Name: Lumpy Space Princess Plushie
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=424378.0#axzz2VUynzDOy
Brief Description: I have posted a pattern for this LSP plushie here on Craftster (see the link above) and also on my blog, with an added tutorial. Although, it's pretty easy, a tutorial is not totally necessary ^_^ This is the first time I've made a plushie with the technique that I think maybe is called gingerbread style? Not sure, but I remember my mum making dolls like this when I was a child.

And here's my haiku ^_^

OH MY GLOB you guys
I'm lookin' fresh to death
You're so totes jealous

Wow, wow, wow! You folks have all been so productive! I've been stalking the thread between classes, but now I can finally add another project - yay! ^_^

Battle: Pirates vs. Ninjas!
Team: Nerdy Ladies
Project Geekdom: TV
Bonus Points: Nerdy
Project Name: Ninja Time
Brief Description: I decided to cast my vote for Ninjas - they're stealthy, highly skilled, and generally awesome! ^_^ I've also been watching a lot of Adventure Time recently, and decided to create an embroidery hoop inspired by the illustation style used in both Adventure Time and Bravest Warriors. I also made my ninja a girl too (as a kinda tribute to my team's declared geekdom, although she's not any particular character), although you can't really tell since she's wearing a body suit ~_^

I made the title by referencing the Adventure Time logo, and I also changed the sword used in the original to a katana. Which is a bit more ninja-ry I think ^_^

This picture is to show her little shuriken a little better. They were so tiny that I gave up trying to cut them out of felt like everything else and instead just used metallic embroidery thread. They're definitely not perfect, but I think they are recognisable still. ^_^

Anyway, I hope you like her!

@roke45 - I love the papercraft you did of Uhura! Go team! ~_^

@noodle-bug - Your Doctor Who patches are fantastic! I can't wait to see more of them ^_^

@speakgeekandenter - I want a River Song diary necklace too now! Such a clever idea!

@Bobbysgirl - Zombies are my fave! Your bracelets are so awesome!!

@smileyyogini - You must have amazing crochet skillz! Your Kaylee doll is adorable, and her dress is perfect!

@ludi - I love how you made the skull and cross-bones on your pirate chest 3D, and the white blackbird embroidery is beautiful ^_^

@silentblair - Your Captain Jack rocks!

@antbee - I love your brown coat patch! Makes me want to practice knitting more! ^_^

Challenge: May Multimedia
Team: Nerdy Ladies
Project Geekdom: Nerdy Ladies
Bonus Points: Discovery and Nerdy (as I'm crafting for our team's declared geekdom)
Project Name: Wonder Woman iPad Case
Brief Description: I found a whole heap of charts for various superhero logos and since I've been meaning to learn charted crochet for a while, I decided to give it a go. I decided on Wonder Woman's logo because she is totally awesome, and she also fits within our team's declared geekdom of ladies from the nerdyverse. For this project I also learnt how to crochet with one colour, while holding the other colours behind the working yarn. I hope that makes sense? After completing the patch, I added a few more rows so I was able to make this into a cover for my iPad. I made some fasteners with buttons and short lengths of chain stitch. Since the cover is mostly red, I think it fits for the May Multimedia challenge, and I can't wait to show my nerdy pride on campus ^_^

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! ^_^
