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:

62  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:

Class: Astronomy
House: Ravenclaw
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...

Class/House Pride: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Knight Bus Challenge
Brief Description: I took a ride along the Knight bus last night to help contribute to the ongoing investigation of the strange occurrences. I took with me this small lavender kitty named Niko. I recruited Niko from the top secret Ministry of Kitty Affairs. He was recommended to me by none other than Crookshanks himself. He came highly recommended as Niko was one of Crookshanks' top agents after Sirius Black's escape from Azkaban many years ago. Niko's old post was to ride along the Knight Bus and hide in the rafters to spy on passengers. As Crookshanks promised, Niko did a splendid job and we gathered a valuable tidbit of information. I managed to snap a photo of Niko taking a quick catnap before we headed out to catch the bus.

66  Doctor Who figures. (Pic heavy) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by AugustBell on: March 12, 2012 04:45:38 PM
This is my second time working with polymer clay, but my first time trying a sculpture. I made these figures for my sister's birthday. I'm thinking of putting them in a terrarium. We are both big Doctor Who fans, so I had lots of fun making them Smiley

First, the TARDIS:

For scale:

I'm really excited for how the Weeping Angel turned out:

And of course, a shot together:

I'm still trying to figure out what to do with them, so if anyone has suggestions, that would be great!

67  Dobby the House Elf in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by AugustBell on: February 19, 2012 07:38:53 PM
I know you guys have seen this Dobby recently, but I told the wonderful LucyRavenscar that I would post a finished picture of him when I got done. Dobby is absolutely one of my favorite Harry Potter characters so I was thrilled to get this pattern. This is my second amigurumi and I had a difficult time getting his limbs sewn on properly. Thank goodness his smock covers the seams Smiley Thanks so much to LucyRavenscar for this wonderful pattern!! You don't know how happy it's made me.

Hope you guys like him. Here's the pattern I used:

69  Re: Decked Out for Deathly Hallows Part II GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by AugustBell on: July 05, 2011 05:39:28 PM
I received the most fantastic package today from rorriM_esoR!!! I am so extremely lucky to have had such a wonderful talented partner.  I love everything you made me so very much!! You are so awesome!

First is a group shot...it's not that great...the flash on my phone messed it up a bit.

She made me a beautiful music box, owl crayons, a Ravenclaw Quidditch magnet and patch from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, a house unity necklace with owl pendant, three pairs of earrings, loaded Ravenclaw charm bracelet, Italian wafer cookies, and lots of chocolate frogs!

First up, the awesome magnet, patch, and owl crayons! The magnet is already in it's rightful place on the fridge. My husband is super impressed with the owl crayons and has demanded that I do not use them and "ruin" them.

Now on the the amazing edibles! She made me some Butter Beer Pizzelles which are Italian cookies that she drizzled with melted butterscotch and they are so yummy! She made three large chocolate frogs and several mini ones. They are a mixture of milk and dark chocolate and have POP ROCKS mixed in. So amazing!

rorriM_esoR made me som absolutely stunning jewelry. I can't pick my favorite. First up the three sets of earrings: A pair of cute little owls, Ravenclaw Quidditch snitch earrings, and Ravenclaw pride knowledge earrings. Fabulous!!

She also made me a Ravenclaw charm bracelet that is out of this world! It's two layers, one is strictly charms and the other is blue and bronze only. It's so wonderful I can't even say how much I love it! I adore all the charms, but my favorites are the wand, rabbit, owl, and mirror!

This necklace is simply stunning. It's a subtle house unity theme with an owl/watch pendant. I absolutely adore this necklace!!!

Action shot:

And finally the Mirror of Erised music box. I love this so much!!! It has three compartments. The center one holds the music component which plays......the Harry Potter theme song!!!!! I couldn't believe it when I heard those first few notes! I am so in love with this box! It is going on my dresser straight away. The two faces represent Dumbledore's saying that men and women have wasted away in front of the mirror. LOVE!!!

I can't say thank you enough for this amazing package! I love everything so much.  I can't wait to wear my necklace to work tomorrow and show off all my great stuff to my other Harry Potter fan friends!

Oh and PS - when I came in the door my cat Neville was all up on the box and all in it when I was taking everything out. He KNEW your kitty had been on there Smiley

70  Jewelry dish and buttons in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by AugustBell on: May 07, 2011 07:10:08 AM
I bought some polymer clay to make buttons for my crocheted and embroidered projects.  This is my first time working with polymer clay so I know the work isn't that great, but I'm still happy with it. I made a jewelry dish to sat on my night stand to stick my earrings and rings in at night. I'm always losing jewelry so I figured this was a good project.

I made some big buttons for headbands, and I made one Ravenclaw themed button to put on a headband for the next movie premier. Thanks for looking!
