Class/Challenge/House Pride: House Pride

House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Quilted Hexie Coasters
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439445.0
Brief Description: With a 15-month-old running around the place, I didn't think tile coasters were a safe idea. I also think hexies are so cute, but didn't want to commit to a huge hexie project like a quilt until I knew whether I was going to like making them or not. Turns out, I LOVE THEM! They are so quick and easy to whip up, and perfect for carrying around to make when I'm out and about. Anyway, here are my quilted hexie coasters. This is my first time quilting anything, so I probably didn't do it "right," but I don't really care. It is house pride - shades of Ravenclaw blue. Smiley

This fits the prompt because they will protect my table from water. Smiley

13  Quilted Hexie Coasters in Quilting: Completed Projects by elliot_anne on: May 26, 2015 11:14:19 PM

I hand-stitched the hexies, and hand-stitched them together. Then I whip stitched all the way around them (the backs are also hexies, and match the fronts). Last, I quilted the coasters with a sewing machine in matching thread.

Anyway, here are my quilted hexie coasters. This is my first time quilting anything, so I probably didn't do it "right," but I don't really care.

I got some beautiful ATCs in the mail this week, and haven't had a chance to upload them until now.

A wonderful addition to my Purple/Green ABC theme from kosmicgirl.



Jenleahlynn sent me two awesome child collaboration ATCs. She said they swapped back and forth every 2 minutes until they were done. A super cute monster and Superman!





Sammylouise40 sent me a geocaching ATC, with the geocache logo!

It is for my Purple and Green ABCs theme, and I just adore it!

I completed my first OWL! Woo!

OWL Subject & Option (if available): Alchemy Option 2 (Earth, Air, Fire, Water)
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Four Elements Pokemon Cross Stitches
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I am working (slowly) on cross stitching all 150 original Pokemon to hang in our hallway. I have about a dozen stitched so far, and only 5 hung up, so I definitely need some motivation to keep going! I chose this prompt because it would force me to make 4 more of them (and get the backs finished, which I really hate doing, and is the reason I only have 5 hung up so far...). For Earth, I chose to make Tangela, the only Pokemon from the original 150 to be a Grass-only type. For Air, I chose Farfetch'd, who is a Flying type. Fire was Magmar. He's made of fire/magma/lava. And Water is Vaporeon, because I love the Eevee-lutions. Anyway, here are detail shots of all 4, and a group shot.

17  Mommy and Me Knotted Headbands in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by elliot_anne on: May 18, 2015 01:35:42 PM
I've been seeing some super cute knotted headbands for little girls lately, but haven't had the money to spend on any for my toddler. I decided to whip up some of my own using this pattern: http://www.howdoesshe.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Headtie-Pattern.pdf

The original pattern size made a 13" headband - good for newborn sized heads, but too small for my toddler. I'll probably keep it fr now, and pass it on to someone having a baby girl.



I still wanted one for my girl and the headband is super easy to make larger. I added 2.5" to the "fold" side of the pattern to make an 18" headband for my daughter (because it's folded over, adding 2.5" actually makes it 5" longer).



After seeing how cute it was on my little girl, I wanted one for myself! I had enough of the same fabric, so I whipped one up for myself, too! For mine, I added 4.5" to the original template to make a 22" headband.



I made these out of plain cotton fabric, but next time I think I'm going to try to use a jersey knit so it has a little bit of stretch/give.

Project Name: Trio of Floral Headbands
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439339.0
Brief Description: I saw some super cute knotted toddler headbands, and wanted to make some for my kiddo. The first one I made was too small (probably good for a newborn, so I'll hang on to it for when one of my friends has a new baby). This is the second one I made, after measuring her head. It fits perfectly! It is made out of some brightly colored scrap fabric I had lying around. She seems to like it, so I'll probably make her some more in other colors. And it was so darn cute on her, I wanted one too.

Bonus Points:
Project Name: Color Book
Project Link:
Brief Description: I saw something like this on pinterest. It is a color book! I made it out of paint chips from the local hardware store. It is thin enough that I can stick it in my purse/diaper bag to help teach my toddler her colors while on the go. We also put in stickers on the different pages, and can add more pages and stickers as time goes on because I used loops to hold the pages together.

Bonus Points:
Project Name: Black/white toddler dress
Project Link:
Brief Description: I made this black and white toddler dress for my toddler. Her great-grandma helped me some with it, because it incorporated a lot of new techniques for me (basting, pattern making, using fancy sewing machine stitches). It came out alright. I wish it wasn't quite so full at the top of the dress, but she doesn't seem to mind it.

Bonus Points:
Project Name: Hot Air Balloon Race
Project Link:
Brief Description: My sister-in-law made these hot air balloons for a Paris themed birthday party a while back. Once she was done with them, she offered them to me to hang in the baby's room. I loved them, except that the baskets were boring brown. I decided to spruce them up a bit with some colorful scrapbook paper in the same colors as the baby's room. Hot air balloons traditionally carry things. I love love love them! (Bonus: Baby girl loves them too!!)
