everything you made is nice, fiber! I espescially love the quidditch gloves!

Audania, very lovely bags! Are they tricky to make??

Not too tricky! The worst part was doing the math for the side triangle pieces  Roll Eyes . I suck at math and pity my children when they get into higher education and are asking for help from me lol. I used a quarter inch drill bit for the holes for the straps, buttons, and loop and I think next time I would go a tiny bit bigger. It's pretty touch to squeeze so much fabric into that little space - especially the wool one (black).  It's a basic remove the book pages (and gift with book purse Wink )and drill holes. Measure four triangle pieces and sew two together with right sides facing; flip to right side out and top stitch. Measure main book sides with an extra half inch on each side that you iron under, glue the triangle pieces to the sides. Measure two straps 24" long and 3" wide that you fold in half, right sides facing, and stitch along long cut edge only. Flip to right sides out and attach one strap by sliding through one hole in a corner and glue down once you have only an inch inside. Repeat for other strap. I braided a piece of yarn for the loop and inserted it the same way as the strap, only insert second side back into same hole and knot at the hole to keep it from coming out before gluing end pieces down inside. I also attached my button closures with yarn as well. Then glue in the rectangular pieces. My spine was 1" wide and 6" long so I cut a piece of cardboard to that size and a piece of fabric 2" wide and 7" long. I glued that strip to the cardboard and then the whole bit to the inside of the purse to keep it all looking nice and neat.

Whew! I think that was all. Let me know if you have any questions!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy and Ravenclaw Quidditch
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: A Trio of "book" bags
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.hgtv.com/handmade/how-to-make-a-hardcover-book-purse/index.html but I changed the handles
Brief Description: I made these as gifts for my three sisters in law. All three love to read, so I've created these out of a series called the Sister's Grimm. I also carefully took the pages out and kept them in tact and I am also giving them to my sils so they can read the story if they wish. And I'm totally making some for me and my kiddos post Christmas! These are red, yellow, black and white Wink

great job on the outfit!  And I love that she even cut her hair - amazing!
I'm sorry about your machine, though. I have the same one and can't think why it would putter out.  Undecided

Well done!

Some days start off so great, and go so to hell.  I went in to work this afternoon, to Strike a dance concert.  While moving the costumes from the theatre to the costume shop, I slipped on wet pavement and banged up my knee really good.  Fortunately I was with a bunch of dancers, who all helped me up, urged me to go slowly, and offered medical advice as to icing and drugs.  Now I won't make it to my friend's holiday party that I was supposed to be at.  Sad

That is so terrible! Praying for you Jennie! I did something similar to the top of my foot (how?) a few weeks ago and it was horrible. Prayers and hugs!!

Oh goodness! I'm gone for a day and all kinds of crafty wonderfulness appears. I have been blissfully sitting on my behind, having a very crafty birthday while eating cheesecake and drinking champagne. The wonderfulest part of it? Nobody gets to complain about my craft stuff being everywhere! Well, they can complain, but I thoroughly have been given the ability to not care! Woohoo!

I love the idea of a craft photo album and I truly may "borrow" that idea. I am in the same boat of super crafting for everyone else and hardly ever get to keep any of it. This may be something awesome I could keep for myself and also stick in and remember all the cool stuff I've done. That's it. I'm totally stealing borrowing this. I want this http://www.urbanthreads.com/products.aspx?productid=UTH1348 on the cover and I want to use this http://www.urbanthreads.com/tutorials.aspx?t=Antique+Embroidered+Book tutorial. I may have to put that castle one on the back though. With a dragon. And green flames.

In OWL news, I'm working pretty good. I've been keeping up with my three recipes per book per day. My hand really does not like cramping, though, so I may take tomorrow off to give it a rest Sad . Is it possible to bruise the tip of your index finger? I still love the idea of these cook books, though, and am glad to have started them so early.
