Thanks, I need it.
Here's an updated photo:

For the wedding, I'll just be adding the horns to his helmet and adding her goggles. There are lots more details to both of them but those will have to wait til later because I have to finish my bouquet, which probably won't be as magnificent as I wanted.

Definitely should count as a Research Project, or come really, really close:
This is 12 hours in. Chandra's (left) hair was awful to style! It wouldn't stay so I used hairspray on it. And trying to make Garruk taller yet proportionate (not too skinny, not too chubby and Chandra's head around his shoulder height) was a PITA!
If I swore to never do something like this again I'd probably be lying because I like a challenge. But I won't try to do something like this on a time crunch again.
Now I've got to make the little detail pieces for them.

So I've decided I like c2c crochet and am going to use it for the red/black mana blanket my fiance requested last year.
Here's what I have so far:

I don't have much crafting time these days so what little I can get between now and December 17th will be used to craft things for my wedding.
The first thing on my list is my bouquet, which I'll be doing as a research project.

Research Project Name: Magic-al Bouquet
Team: Fandom
Brief Description: As I said, my fiance and I are getting married December 17th and 99% of our decorations will be DIY, made by myself, my mom, my aunt, and a couple of cousins. The first thing on my list of things to do is my bouquet.
Since my fiance and I are getting married at our local card/comic shop (owner is a friend and offered up his backroom FREE!), we decided to go with Magic: The Gathering as our theme instead of the previous theme of The Nightmare Before Christmas (thank goodness I'm a procrastinator and don't already have decorations made in that theme!) Since we have loads of spare mana cards, I decided that I would some of them to make my bouquet.
I made a couple of flowers, to test my ability to make them, and it took me about an hour each to make those two flowers, which included time spent cutting the petals, arranging them, and attaching them to buttons that had floral wire looped through them. The one with the Swamp (skull) in the center had the skull replaced with a different image.

Hello all!
I've been busy with my little froggy lately and haven't done much crafting. He likes to try to chew my yarn so I can't crochet as I hold him. He chews ALL THE THINGS these days though Roll Eyes

But I have managed to make a wallet for myself in Slytherin's colors:

And a Luigi hat for my cousin's son, the same one who got the Mario hat (it will be put up for Christmas):

Prompt: Free Range Crafting
Team: Digital
Medal Event: Fabricology
Project Name: Star Wars crib sheet
As a nerdy mama, I wanted nerdy things for my baby's room. I actually wanted his nursery's theme to be sci-fi/space but had no luck finding any such baby stuff in stores, be it clothing or bedding.
And what I found online was super pricey.
So of course that means I just have to do it myself, right?
I searched Pinterest and found this tutorial on The Ribbon Retreat blog and sewed up a sheet.

I sewed a fitted sheet for my little froggy's crib:

I got the fabric from Hancock Fabrics; the tutorial for the sheet can be found here, on The Ribbon Retreat blog.
I'm going to be making a second one, this time with Doctor Who fabric  Grin

Oh hey! I'm actually posting something Shocked
Prompt: April - Don Quixote
Team: Fandom
Project Name: LSU blanket
My fiance's friend Blake is his best friend and no one is more loyal to you than your best friend Smiley His favorite college football team is LSU and I found some LSU fleece on sale at Hancock Fabrics so I bought some along with some blanket binding and made him a blanket Cheesy

Didn't work on curtains today (I slept a LOT) but I did get this done up for my fiance's best friend:

It's about 1 1/2 yards fabric with satin blanket binding sewn on (a whole one and less than half of another) to give it a finished look. Super simple and relatively cheap because I bought it all on sale at Hancock Fabrics.

Y'all have seen the hat but this cutie was a nine months in the making project and I'm very proud of him:

His name is Lucius and he's a very lively baby who loves looking around.
