Project Name: Pokemon Computer Sleeve
Project Page Link (if available):

Project Name: A Summer hat for Clara
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Flacking pertains to a part of the body.  Clara needed a Sunday hat and so I crafted a summer hat out of a hat form, some ribbon, flowers and hearts of hibiscus centers.  I attached everything with hot glue.  Now I just need to make a hat box for her hat... when I get a chance.

House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: A Bath Mat for Simone
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=435160.0#axzz3AfT8933z
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) Simone needs a rug to go alongside her bed and a mat to step on when she gets out of the bath.  I saw a picture on pinterest of a mat similar to the one I made but there were no instructions.  So I decided to "wing it".  Joy reminded me that I needed to include instructions, since there was no link to a pattern, and I asked if there wasn't a class that required a tutorial.  "Yes, why yes there is" was the reply.  I have now learned how to do a tutorial and post it.  That you for making me learn that!

Supplies needed:

Project Name: Everything but the Kitchen Sink Casserole
Project Page Link (if available): none
Brief Description: doing breakfast for six sometimes makes me feel like a short order cook, but this fills everyone up
Recipe:
   2 large baking potatoes
   1 link sausage (your choice of flavor)
   1 large onion
   12 eggs (from my own chickens)
   1/2 cup salsa
   Salt and pepper to taste
    Oil for frying
Instructions:
   1.  Wash, peel, and dice potatoes into 1/2" cubes
   2.  Heat oil in pan and add potatoes (since they take the longest to cook)
   3.  Cut sausage into pieces about same size as potatoes
   4.  Season the potatoes   
   5.  Add sausage to pan and stir to mix
   6.  Season again
   7.  Dice onion and add to pan
   8.  Beat potatoes and salsa to scramble stage, seasoning as you go
   9.  When onions are transparent, add egg mixture to pan
  10.  Cover, turn down heat and cook until eggs are done.
If you choose, you can put this mix in a 350 degree oven to cook, removing when eggs are done. 
Disclaimer:  The length of time you cook this in the oven is dependent on your stove.

Joy says the picture does not do justice to how amazing it smells (she started a diet yesterday) ... And I must admit it tasted good even tho this morning I could find no sausage to put in the pot ... Must buy sausage... X

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Mannequin for Clara
Project Page Link (if available):   n/a
Brief Description:  While making a wardrobe for Clara, I decided that I needed a mannequin so I wouldnt be continually sticking pins in her body.  I began by wrapping her body in aluminum foil, then covering that with duct tape. When finished with the duct tape, I carefully cut it off her.  I then taped it back together,  filled the body cavity with foam from a can of Small Gaps Foam.  I set the form aside for a few days to let the foam cure. I then cut off all the extra foam and covered the neck and arm openings with tape to seal them.  I was going to put the mannequin on a stand so it would be out of the way when not in use, but decided to just use it as it was, since handling it during use made working much easier (and annoying baby sister kept taking it off the shelf).  I put it in my crafting drawer when not in use.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:  Wardrobe for Clara (9 items)
Project Page Link (if available):    n/a
Brief Description:  Clara needed a new wardrobe, since she had only one skirt, blouse and poke bonnet.  So I crafted the following 9 items for her
   1.  Striped Jacket to go with her skirt
   2.  A reticule to carry her money
   3.  A burgundy skirt
   4.  A white petticoat
   5.  Pantaloons
   6.  Nightgown
   7.  Robe
   8.  Diary
  And of course
   9.  Poetry by Byron
I crafted my own patterns using her body as a mannequin and the patterns from The Complete DollMaker by Alice D. Weiner.  I made many modifications.  The jacket was made by modifying the blouse pattern: changing the sleeves, adding a collar, etc. and much of that was trial and error.  Muslin came in handy for making prototypes of the clothing I wanted her to have.  All patterns had to be resized to fit, since Claras body type is that of a young girl, rather than a mature woman.  Graph paper really did come in handy as I resized, modified, and generally created the patterns.  The reticule was all hand sewn (and it DOES contain money).  I found the book by Byron online (although I cant find it now, I will post the url when I do) because all young girls need something romantic to read and I could not find anything by Jane Austen.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Care of Magical Creatures (CoMC)
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:  Collar for Erin
Project Page Link (if available):    
Brief Description:   Erins collar was really getting ratty looking so I decided it was time for a new one.  A while back I had bought the kids a paracord bracelet making kit (it and all instructions are gone now).  I had some pink camo paracord, so I wove an 8 collar for her, including the D-ring and tags from her old collar.  I was surprised that the clasp on her collar was the same size as the bracelet on my arm, so I used it for the new collar.  I melted the ends like I remembered we were supposed to, but also sewed the ends to the bracelet so it would not come apart.  Erin is a lavender Chihuahua and the pink camo brings that out.  The pictures are not very good since Erin is very camera shy.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology  
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:  Book bag for Clara (and supplies)
Project Page Link (if available):    n/a
Brief Description:  Clara needed a bag and supplies to take on her walk so I sewed a bag for her to carry her supplies in.  I then made a book on American plants for her to take as well as a sketch book and two pencils.  I found the book online and followed a pin tutorial on make doll books.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:  Transfiguration
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:  A shawl for Clara and one for Simone
Project Page Link (if available):   Redheart.com pattern 1698 (triangle shawl)
Brief Description:  I found a beautiful crochet shawl pattern and by changing the size of yarn and hook, I was able to make it in blue for Simone.  Clara needed one so I waved my wand and POOF! There it was in brown!  I was really surprised to see that it was a little larger than Simones, but that was a good thing since Clara is just a little taller than Simone. I used pattern LW1698 from Radhearts website.

House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:  Katies CD bag
Project Page Link (if available):    n/a
Brief Description:  Using Katies CD player to obtain the correct size, I cut a piece of faux leather and broadcloth for the lining.  I sewed the leather and broadcloth together and turned them right side out. I measured the strap to fit Katies body and sewed the leather strip to the lining strip and turned it right side out.  I attached the strap to the body before sewing the sides of the bag.

NOTE I am have a WHOLE LOT OF TROUBLE posting my pictures (which are in my photo hosting) so I switched to Joy's computer and wound up finishing from my phone. I promise that I will never try to post this many class/challenges at once ( especially when they take so many pictures and I can't get them straight) ever again.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Bean - Blue Raspberry
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: A MuuMuu for Clara
Project Page Link (if available): na
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) I went to Hawaii and, while I was there, ordered a muumuu for Clara out of a beautiful red floral, island inspired, print. It arrived today and we were both disappointed!  While the muumuu fit and was comfortable, it was rather a shock. It is a plain blue-- not at all a beautiful print!  Oh well.  Clara says she likes it so I guess we will keep it.

Project Name: Afghan for Simone
Project Page Link (if available): momontimeout.com
Brief Description: Simone, Joy's doll, is getting a new bed and her favorite color is blue.  I had some nice blue/green yarn, very reminiscent of the waves rushing toward shore, so I thought I would make an afghan for her bed. It has popcorn stitch throughout.

NOTE:  I'm having a horrible time with the photo hosting.  No matter how many time I rotate my pic so it will be straight up, it always posts sideways.  Undecided
