That raven page is fantastic as well. I'm in awe of your skills, Abbeeroad!

Aw! Thank you, pioneer9! Cheesy

I received this most awesome page from goatgoddess:

Isn't it lovely? I have no idea how she did it, but I absolutely love it.

She also sent me some finishing fabric and interfacing so that I can put it into my journal however I want.

Thanks goatgoddess!!!!

Yay gala_apples! I'm glad you like everything. I actually did not dye the bag lining, I've had that fabric in my stash forever - I was glad to put it to good use!

And I received from gala_apples!!!

She made me this rockin' market bag:

I love all the patches - gala told me this took her forever, and it came out awesome - thank you, gala!

And she sent me a set of three prayer flags based on a favorite quote of mine:

I love, love, love these! Don't worry, gala, they will be well-protected indoors. Cheesy

Thanks so much for everything - this was a great swap!! Smiley

173  Gryffindor Common Room in Craftalongs by Abbeeroad on: May 20, 2015 06:43:39 AM

Welcome to the Gryffindor Common Room!

Announcing! The Summer of Mischief!!

It's summertime at Hogwarts, and the halls are a bit quiet. Seems like the perfect opportunity for some mischief!!  Wink

Do you solemnly swear you're up to no good? If so, Gryffindor has decided to host a mini mischief-along this semester. Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to perform ONE Random Act of Mischief this summer. Always wanted to try yarn bombing or some art abandonment or [insert crafty mischief of choice here]? Now's your chance! The mischief-along is open to all Hogwarts students. Those who perform their random act of mischief will earn a "Mischief Managed" badge and be entered into a random giveaway for some "Mischief Managed" loot at the end of the semester! Just be sure to call out your Random Act of Mischief when you submit your project by using the header "Mischief Managed." Random Acts of Mischief on their own will not count toward house points, but if it fits a class or challenge prompt, be sure to grab those points when submitting your mischief. While you can perform more than one Random Act of Mischief, you will only be entered into the giveaway once. I will post badges and prizes as the semester draws to a close. Of course, please ensure that your "mischief" is good-natured and well-intended. Grin

Awesome stuff, all! May is a little crazy for me, so I'm not sure how many projects I'll fit in before the end of the semester, but I HAVE to get this one in, so here goes.

Challenge: Detention in the Dungeons (MAY)
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Kid Lab Coat
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439280.new#new
Brief Description: I picked up a pattern AGES ago with the intent of making some clothes for my kiddo, but once I cut out the pieces, it kind of just sat around. Then my kid saw Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, and requested a lab coat like Flint Lockwood's. I knew I could reconfigure the pattern I had to turn it into a lab coat, so a few tweaks later, I had a working pattern. However, I have a slight problem with keeping white fabric white in my house (I may or may not have a tie-dye problem), so several purchases of white fabric and/or potentially repurpose-able white sheets never made it through the tie-dye gauntlet that is the "Road" House. Finally, finally, with a sixth birthday date looming close I managed to gather two yards of untouched white cotton and complete this long-time WIP last weekend. Now it just has to stay white until after the birthday party on Saturday! Wink

Happy kid (finally!):

176  Kid Lab Coat for at-home Mad Sciencing in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Abbeeroad on: May 11, 2015 01:18:57 PM
My kiddo is obsessed with at-home science experiments. Pretty much every time I go food shopping I have to stock up on Alka-Seltzer, Mentos, diet Coke, baking soda, vinegar, and food coloring, just to name a few favorites. In addition, he has been asking for a lab coat since he first saw Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (remember the scene where Flint gets his first lab coat? My son does!). Since he's turning six (!!) very soon and we are having a (what else?) science-themed birthday party, I finally got around to making him a lab coat of his very own. His only prerequisite was that it had "inside" pockets - for important science stuff, of course.

Here's the finished product:

I started with this pattern I picked up at the thrift store ages ago (pattern C) and ~2 yards of white cotton:

Some modifications I made to the pattern are as follows: I lengthened the pattern sleeves and the shirt overall and increased the number of pockets from one to six (three outside and three inside). The collar part was confusing and I ended up with extra fabric in the front, which became neat little lapels, so I'm cool with it. Grin

The skull logo just adds a bit of personalization.  Wink

Inside pockets in use:

Thanks for looking!

I made these wooden twinchies for spikefan in the STS swap. It's great to get a inspirational nudge from a fellow craftster-er. Grin

The pic isn't that great, but they are supposed to be: fire, abstract, tribal, and space inspired, respectively.

Awesome stuff ladies!! Love it all.

Unfortunately I was not as diligent as I should have been with taking pics of my package for Maman...here's what I do have...

A group shot of sorts:

You can see lots of tie-dye, the Buddha necklace, and a bit of the yoga belt I made.

I made Maman tie-dye leggings like these (but these are MINE Grin):

With a lotus stamp on the upper left corner...similar to this one that's on the back of her daughter's tie-dye:

And this one that's on a lavender sachet I also sent:

Here's another close-up shot of one of the tie-dyes:

And a little wood-burned sign (the only pic I have of it is among my messy craft space!):

I also sent a hand-dyed fat quarter in reds and oranges, but I did't get a pic of that...

Glad you liked it Maman! Sorry I didn't take pre-send pics! Hope you'll post some awesome action shots when you can!! Wink
