1  Does it need a bigger pompom?? baby hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by noodle-bug on: January 22, 2015 07:10:35 PM

A pretty simple baby hat (well, you'd think, but how  many times did I forget to purl into the back of the stitch in that rib section! Path!)... but I am plagued by the knitter's dilemma; does it need a bigger pompom?

Answers on a postcard...

Expecto Totoro!

Class: Potions
house; ravenclaw
project; quiz show hexies

I've been say making hexies whilst yelling answers (only occasionally the right ones,  unfortunately) at quiz  show contestants on tv. Personnel favorites are 'only connect' and university challenge (despite paxman being a smug git)

Hexies require  several bits off prep; printing off and cutting out paper templates (I like to use old homework sheets as being allowed to snip them to bits is good for my soul), and sourcing/ cutting down small bits of fabric... these are mostly from a swap I did with tiamatfire (pm me of you might be interested in swapping too!). Then you can pin template to fabric and tack them up...

the problem with muggle  travel,  especially on foot,  is the cold.  Especially especially if you're a baby,  and dependant on parents to wrap you up warm... and especially especially especially if you're daddy is a bit forgetful like my friend Jack.  He's soon to be a father, so to help him remember to dress his kid for the cold, I've made a hat in his football team colors

Nice tunic, I'm excited too see it!

To help me see clearly what supplies i have, i have made one box big enough to keep all of my papers in (as opposed to several small boxes with things in different places)
It's the large box with peacock paper covering

House; Ravenclaw
A storage box for my Christmas box (the top one in the image), thus time in Gryffindor gold!

Crickey, you only have til midnight today to finish the blueberry pie bean then! Do you grow anything in your garden (or maybe a neighbour does?) that you could cook with? Or some local factory that makes something, even if it's not a traditional craft material, maybe you could incorporate it?

I just finished up this which is perfect for the new bean  :-D
Challenge; bean, satsuma
House; Ravenclaw
Project ; soap scrubby
the traditional craft of knitting, and even some new-to-me traditional stitches (picot edging and yarn overs), to make this soap scrubby, to hold the lovely soap i got for Christmas. The yarn is leftovers, and probably wildly unsuitable but i don't usually use hard soap (i prefer liquid) so i think it will be up to the job for as long as i need!

6  punk art doll pin cushion in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by noodle-bug on: January 03, 2015 12:40:49 PM

At a hack festival, a friend challenged me to make a birthday gift for his pal's upcoming party. i had taken my then-current project, so had a sewing kit and a few scraps of fabric to use, but everything had to be scrounged/found ... Someone donated a beaded earring to deconstruct, the kitchens gave us some wire wool to stuff her with (making a pin cushion, since the recipient is a textile artist)... She's far from perfect, but given the circumstances i thought she came out ok!

8  festival banners in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by noodle-bug on: January 03, 2015 11:25:49 AM

My friend and i painted the entrance way banners for a festival we helped organise. I did the upwards hand and the top, she did the initial design and the downwards hand. She drew out the images on a4 paper, then we scaled them up just by eye using the grid method, sketched out in pen then went over in paint with brushes & rollers. I think they came our pretty good, though i wish we had known that the road sign would be there!

10  3D hoops & light up hoops in Needlework: Completed Projects by noodle-bug on: January 02, 2015 06:17:45 AM
Some classic hoop in hoop action to depic the logo for a festival i worked at...

These hung in the entrance tent, but were all stolen by the end if the first day so i didn't get an action shot, but i was pretty pleased with them. They're just felt applique, a little embroidery, and some plastic mesh work but i think they came out quite striking

These hoops also hung in the entrance tent, i incorporated done electrics into them so they have flashy blue lights too  :-D they're just stitched onto felt
