Class: Flying House: Slytherin Project Name: Jareth's crystals and Hoggle's jewels earrings Brief Description: I joined a Labyrinth themed swap and made these for my partner. I enchanted them so that the crystals will illuminate the wearer when it gets dark out, therefore preventing a flying accident.
The crystals are actually clear glass marbles. I hope she doesn't see these because she hasn't received yet but I just couldn't resist sharing.
Class: Divination House: Slytherin Project Name: She wore a purple rose Brief Description: I found a rose in my tea cup and according to my research, it means a deepening romance. My boyfriend and I love purple so I decided to make myself a purple rose hair clip to symbolize our love. It is made of purple felt triangles sewn together then clipped to resemble a rose then sewn onto green felt cut in the shape of leaves. I then sewed the rose to a clip that is used for making hair bows.
@pinkleo: I love your ice cream cozy! It's too cute!
@Maman: I have people tell me "If you can make doll clothes you can make people clothes". Which sounds nice but I make clothes for plush dolls that don't have a bust! I'm using a book called "How to Make Sewing Patterns" by Donald H. McCunn for help. It's very easy to understand and has a lot of drawings for aid. I think my first project from my own pattern will be something easy, like a skirt or a tank top. I'll still make the dress for the doll though for a trial run. I recently found a My Scene doll that needs some clothes that suit my tastes.
