1  2016 Annual DeStash-Along in Craftalongs by ErinAquaheart on: August 16, 2016 06:20:10 PM
I added! Ugh! I made new oven mitts and hot pads for my kitchen and none of the fabric I had was what I wanted.

I did use up some of my extra yarn by making these cute apple cozies. Button eyes came from stash as well.


Also bought extra fabric to make some new clothes. I'm excited for new clothes!

Class: Apparition
House: Slytherin
Project Name: The Walking Dead Purse Dangle
Project Description: Midkiffsjoy won one of the class prizes the term before last. She requested a purse dangle that was The Walking Dead themed. Because I had never seen the show I had to do some research...binge watching a show is research right? Anywho....I ended up designing a purse dangle that had three charms that travel together linked by the same chain. They each have a related charm that goes with the character. They are two sided as well.
fronts of the charms and the quotes
backs of the characters
all together

The characters are
Daryl and "you better watch your mouth sunshine"
Michonne and "Anger makes you stupid. Stupid gets you killed."
And zombie girl with teddy bear and the "don't open. Dead inside" doors

Midkiffsjoy I hope that you love it! It's hard to part with now Wink  it will be in the mail Monday!

Project description: one day while technicolor was at work and I didn't have my shift until a few hours later I sat out at the coffee shop and crocheted up a monster Apple cozy for me to bring my apples to work without them getting to beat. It turned out a little large so I'll be able to use it for oranges as well!


Challenge: headmistress--Mirror of Erised
House: Slytherin
Project name: small pink Apple cozy
Project description: after the large purple monster cozy I had to make a smaller one for my smaller apples. So this is just for me! Stay away from my apples and their cozies. Cheesy

Massive class dump ahead! Beware!!

Class: arithmancy
House: Slytherin
Project name: Acid Pops and Fizzing Whizzbees
Project description: I made several paintings for Jenleahlynn for the I Want to Live at the Burrows Swap. This one features Acid Pops. I love using watercolors and painting but I really wish that I could have gotten some of the translucent qualities of lollipops. Guess I'll just have to keep trying. 


Class: CoMC
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Star Spangled head band
Project description: For the US Independence Day I made a head band to wear around, especially to work! Stars have five points just like the quintaped.


Class: charms
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Accio! Notions box
Project description: Another item that I made for Jenleahlynn for the Burrows swap. This notions box I gave a ribbon border to. Both on the base and the lid. Not to mention giving a boundary for those pesky pins to land during a project.


Class: Divination
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Gryffindor Clock
Project description: I made Jenleahlynn a clock for her kitchen! This clock has two lions on the clock face. To make them I had to reverse the image of the first one I drew.


Class: Flying
House: Slytherin
Project name: paper covered bits and bobs boxes
Project description: to go along with her notions box, I included some little paper covered boxes that Jenleahlynn could use to help her keep all those little notions organized. Each box is less than 4x4 and required speed to glue into place, as well as precision in cutting out the template to cover them.


Class: herbology
House: Slytherin
Project name: Clearance chalkboard for work
Project description: work can be intolerably boring and hard. But as long as I have to be there I might as well have fun when they tell me to make a sign! So lemonade from lemons! I made a fun doodle from the work project I had to do. (And then I had to change it a week later Cheesy)


Class: HoM
House: Slytherin
Project name: Pumpkin Pasties Painting
Project description: This is a second painting for Jenleahlynn for the Burrows swap. Featuring pumpkin pasties, canary creams, and licorice wands. As a Slytherin I just want everything that I do to make a huge impression. I want my work to stick with you and never be forgotten. In classic me and Slytherin style I made this pile of sweet treats. Do you think I made enough yet? (There are three more little paintings. 0o0)


Challenge: House Unity
House: Slytherin
Project name: Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Bean painting
Project description: I can't really think of anything more unifying then bonding over a box of Bertie Bott's! Get together and enjoy laughing at each others misfortunes. Lol
(Made for Jenleahlynn)


Class: transfiguration
House: Slytherin
Project name: chocolate frog painting
Project description: I made a chocolate frog from my watercolor paints. This is yet another painting that I made for the burrows swap.

I am just adoring the spoils from my swap with Jenleahlynn!

She made me the cutest little towel holder and matching wash cloth. Both have already been in use.


And then she put so much amazing work into a curtain for my bedroom. I have a really eclectic style with an off color combo. So I was really thrilled with how wonderful this curtain turned out. And like she put it on the craft along--there is an element of tapestry to it. And that makes it even better! I adore magical creatures. After searching for a curtain rod and some cursing getting it installed I can finally take a picture of it hanging in my room.
I took a day picture and a night picture.
Night:

And day:


So so so thrilled with my gifts! Now I must figure out something complimentary to hang in my other window!

Challenge: Quidditch Captain
House: Slytherin
Project name: owl bunting
Project description: I made this bunting for Jenleahlynn for the hp burrows swap. It took several layers of planning. I sketched out several plans and picked the one I liked the most. Then I drafted the pattern pieces and made sure nothing was too big or too small on the triangles. I gathered my materials and then carefully sewed all of the pieces together. Even with all the planning I still almost forgot to embroider the beaks on! O-o I carried the bunting around with me in a ziplock bag while I worked on it so I didn't loose any pieces. Especially the buttons for the eyes! And of course it all had to be finished for the send out on the 11th!




I like Jenleahlynn's picture on the Burrows Gallery thread a bit more than mine! Lol

Class: Alchemy
House: Slytherin
Project name: purple iris painting
Project description: this is the other flower I painted for my grandmother. I am hoping that it brings her great joy as she get to feeling better after her surgery.
I wasn't planning on this flower being a sacrifice but once it was done I realized just how hard it was going to be to part with it! But I know it will bring her some brightness.

Challenge: headmistress May
House: Slytherin
Project name: a daffodil for my grandmother
Project description: my grandmother fell a little over a year ago and broke her wrist. and some how her hitting her head was over looked. So about two weeks ago she started walking funny. My uncle brought her to the doctor and they did scans only to find that she needed brain surgery immediately because she had some bleeding in her brain. The did emergency surgery to relieve the pressure and to stop the bleed. Everything went great and she's back home now. I am sending her a get well card and some little paintings for her to enjoy. One is this daffodil.

Challenge: floo--- Madam Malkins
House: Slytherin
Project name: garden box squirrel guards
Project description: we have some garden boxes that we have tried to use several times since we bought them. But every time we plant seedlings or anything for that matter the stupid (but cute) little squirrels dig everything up. I have tried pest deterrent and all of the natural remedies I can find. But nothing stops them from thinking those boxes are the best place to store acorns and the occasional pecan. So I bought some wire rabbit mesh and fashioned some perfectly fitting tops.


Class: SoAR
House: Slytherin
Project name: Forest Guardian at Watch
Project description: I have been trying to work on my NEWT with very little success. I just am to unsure how I wanted the Forest Guardian that leads Teddy into the Forest of Lost Souls to look. So I took some time to make a trial painting of him. So this is the Forest Guardian on matboard with acrylic paint.

And then some fly by posting.

Challenge: detention--April
House: Slytherin
Project name: a new night stand
Project description: I rearranged my room recently and now I needed a bedside table. I wanted something small, cheap, and cute. After much shopping I found nothing that I wanted. Around my birthday (in March) I was driving home and one of the families in my neighbor hood had placed an outdoor metal table out on the street (they moved) so I snagged that sucker before anyone else could. It was small. Cute. And free! But it was an ugly color. After much sanding to get rid of the rust I spray painted it purple! It's so perfect now. Mmmmm.....now I just wish my bed frame matched.......
