pottermouth: Thumbs up to you for using that fabric and willing to start over after the iron accident. I would have scrap the project, you are a Wander Mom.

noodle-bug: I love your lady version of Edward scissor hands. Its so Halloweeny cute.

Naantje: Your first knitted mittens look great and so warm.  

Inselaeffchen: Thanks, but the ties were for my swap partner pups. Its up to her now to snap a pic. You got some mad carving skills. I loving all the pumpkin carvings I have seen so far.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:DADA
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Hippogriff Hatchling
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description:  I didnt use a pattern I made him up as I went along. It was very tricky because I had to try and create a plush I had never done before. I didnt use a pattern I made him as I went along, changing what I didnt like and keeping the parts I did. This went on for a week until I was happy with the end results.Then I packed him up for his new home.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Fear of a Name Challenge
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Toting The Lion
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Completing this bag was a personal craft challenges for me. I didnt use a pattern, but I did use a ruler and my blinder for a guide for the size of  the bag. Its a doubled layered bag. Knit on the outside, crochet inside and on the front pocket with the Gryffindor lion on it.  The lion pattern I crocheted is from a chart I found on google thou. The hardest part of this bag was the knitted checkered back of the bag. I had to redo it twice because getting the measurement correct was the main problem. I have never done checks with knit before or doubled layers, nor tried to combine a bag with crochet and knit. Since I have over come my personal challenge, I feel good about taking my knitting to the next level now. Also can someone tell me if my project fits in knit or crochet since it is half & half?

Here are the pictures of the items I made for my partner Back to Hogwarts package.

I made her a soft knit/crochet doubled layered Gryffindor tote bag with a front pocket.

The shop she chose was Flourish and Blotts. I made an Advance Potions and Spells journal with a pocket on the back page and a mixing stick as a bookmark.

A potion kit (bath fizzies kit) and a citrus bath fizzie ball since her chosen class was potions. I thought it would be more interesting than 12 bath fizzie balls, so I put together a kit for her and included a beginner mold.

I also included a few little fun extras for her.
 -Six colorful vials for mixing potions and a student size plastic black cauldron(not shown because I forgot to take a picture of it before sending out.)
-A large potion bottle with the toxic label on it
-Sixlets gluten free chocolate candies
-Mini flavorful marshmallows
-Jelly Beans (aka Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans)

-The citrus bath fizzie is also in this pic next to the large potion bottle on the right.

Two house pride pet  crochet ties Gryffindor and Ravenclaw. You pin them on the dog collars.

Her favorite Magical Creature the Hippogriff. I sent a young hatchling Hippogriff, it still dont have any ear feathers yet or strong enough wings to fly. But this little guy still packs a mean bite, so watch out!


That's all folks. Cool
