Here's the fabulous card I received from Jillybeans for my Harry Potter ABC's theme. Look at this adorable Mandrake!!

And she sent me some great extras too. I think the birdcage card is my favorite. I also adore the card she sent my ATC in. It's all so great!

Thank you so much, Jillybeans!!

I made this kitty for my niece for her 2nd birthday. I used the amineko pattern and used felt and embroidery thread for the mouth. I just winged it for the outfit. This kitty is ready for summer fun and snuggles!

I received my OTT from bobbinalong today. Prepare to be blown away! She crafted based on my favorite shop: Honeydukes. She made me a tiny Honeydukes cart from the Hogwarts Express!!

Anything from the trolley, dears?

Look at the amazing detail! On the top shelf we have Acid Pops, Droobles Best Blowing Gum, Cauldron Cakes, Lollipops, Pumpkin Pasties, Pumpkin Juice, Licorice Wands, Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans.

This is the best photo I could get of the bottom shelf. This shelf includes: Doughnut, Cockroach Cluster, Chocolate Frogs, Honeydukes Chocolate, and Sugar Quills.

This is the back of the trolley. You can see there's a tiny Honeydukes towel hanging on the back. It's so nice!

And here's the whole lot! She had to package it in a tin so it wouldn't get smashed. She sent me a fabulous Sorting Hat card, and the scroll is a list of all the things on the trolley.

Thank you so much, bobbinalong!! I can't tell you how much I love it. I feel so lucky to have been partnered with you. THANK YOU!!!

Class: Reducio Challenge
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: HP Jar Pincushion
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410366.0
Brief Description: This is what I made for bobbinalong in the OTHPT swap. It's 4" tall exactly. I painted Hogwarts against a night sky on one side and her favorite spell "Alohomora" on the other side. The top is crocheted in her house colors (Gryffindor). I did a wire crochet border with red and gold beads and a lion charm. Inside I put a Weasley twins matchbox with buttons and pins inside along with other mini sewing notions.

The lot:

68  Harry Potter Jar Pincushion in Completed Projects by AugustBell on: June 20, 2012 02:10:49 PM
I made this Harry Potter/Gryffindor jar pincushion for my partner, bobbinalong, in the One Tiny Harry Potter Thing Round 3 swap. I've been seeing jar pincushions on Pinterest for a while and was happy to get the chance to make one. It's 4" in height, as per the OTT rules. I've never painted on glass before, but I had so much fun doing it. I used Elmer's Painter's paint pens and then cured the jar in the oven after it dried.

Group shot of the jar and everything I put inside:

I painted Hogwarts against a night sky on the front of the jar. The top is crocheted in Gryffindor colors, and around the bottom of the lid is a wire crocheted border. I used gold wire, red and gold beads, and a lion charm. The Weasley twins box is a matchbox that I made to store some pins and buttons.

Close up of Hogwarts:

On the back of the glass I painted her favorite spell "Alohomora". It's a spell used to unlock things. I always think of Hermione using it in Sorceror's Stone to sneak into the forbidden third floor corridor.

Hope you like it!

Class: Divination
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Rainbow Sensory Bin
Brief Description: I chose a rainbow for my omen. Who doesn't love a rainbow? They are so pretty and there's always gold at the end of them! I decided to do a sensory bin for my 20-month-old (today!) son. He loves sensory bins and he's had a dried oatmeal and dinosaur one for a while and I thought it was time for a change.  I dyed six pounds of pasta in six different colors. Dying the pasta was messier than I anticipated and took longer too. I also had to redo three pounds :/ I made a felt cloud plushie and of course added a pot of gold!

Little cloud guy:

Action shot of my little man playing:

Project Name: Slightly sad first doodle stitching.
Project Page Link:
Brief Description: I've always admired doodle stitching and have always wanted to try it. I have also been wanting to embroider the phrase "I love you to the moon and back" for my son's room. Well today I just got out my thread and needle and went to it...and it was a bit of a "FAIL"...Ha! I very much enjoy patterns. I'm a "planner" and I like to have things perfectly outlined before getting started so this was a real challenge. I'm not very happy with the way it turned out because it's just so wonky and the composition makes me want to cry, but I'm glad I did it. Now I know it's just not my thing. The wording is much more visible in person...I swear...
