More cute things!  Love the tea wallet and all the baby-occupying toys (with an ADORABLE girl).  I'm going to have to make some of those for my girl!  Fantastic OWL too, the spinning is well done and the cover is gorgeous.

I have two projects:

Class: Apparition
House: Gryffindor
Name: Dish cloths

Just some good ol' dishcloths, as gift additions and stocking stuffers.  Simple crochet pattern - make an even-numbered chain, sc1 in 2nd ch from hook, ch1, *sc1, ch1, skip 1* to end, sc1, ch1, turn.  Follow until the right length.  The yellow one has a border of sc with three sc at the corners, and is made to match the apron below.

Class: Herbology
House: Gryffindor
Name: Lemony fresh!
Project Page: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418130.0

It's a Butterick retro reprint pattern.  The fabric is from the States, I used bought single-fold bias tape, and pinked any raw edges that weren't covered.  I think it's pretty cheery and bright!  It's also perfect for herbology - protective from messes, and displays fruit to boot!

I made this apron for my friend using one of the Butterick retro reprint patterns.  I've been hoarding the fabric for awhile (I got it in the States in 2011) but realised that the colours will look a lot better on her!  I mostly followed the pattern, bought used bought single-fold bias tape, pinked any raw edges that aren't covered, and didn't use bias tape on the ruffle inset at the bottom.  I also didn't add a pocket, because really, who uses a pocket on a cooking apron?  I suppose it would be good for holding rings or a watch though.

Class: Muggle Studies OWL (carry-over from Fall)
House: Gryffindor
Name: Evelyn's Stocking

So for my Muggle Studies OWL I made a stocking for my daughter's first Christmas.  Although witches and wizards celebrate Christmas too, muggles seem to get extra excited - possibly because it's one of the few times a year they experience what they think is magic!  I can imagine Mrs. Weasley stitching up extra-special stockings like these for Ron and Ginny's children, since they both married people raised in the muggle world.  How better to make a magical stocking than cover it with sparkling beads and sequins!

This took me almost two months, all squeezed into little crafting sessions where the baby was napping, on "daddy-daughter time" (where my husband takes her out for special time on Sundays), and late at night.  Overall hours it probably ran well over 100, since it's 100% hand-stitched and hand-cut.  All the little toys are whole, but are tacked into a pocket at the top.

Fibre, how do you get such wonderfully clean edges on your stencils?  My freezer paper stencils always seem to seep most awfully.  I'm wondering if it's that I'm not using good enough fabric medium...

The cookies are pretty easy!  They are from here: http://glutenfreeonashoestring.com/chocolate-thumbprint-cookies-2/

I had to make my own mock Better Batter flour mix because you can't buy it in Canada (and I'm blasted if I'm going to pay $40 just in shipping to get it) using another recipe on the site, and it worked pretty well!  It would be even better though with real Better Batter OR with the mock flour using superfine rice flours (which I also can't buy here, bah!).  They are slightly gritty just because I had to use rice flours that were a standard grind.

Wow, my parents come to visit and I get like 20 pages behind AND miss start of term!  Such great stuff so far guys!  I only have one project to add, mostly because some of my current things just can't be squeezed into the class definitions.  I should hopefully have an OWL soon though...

Class: Alchemy
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Peppermint Stripe cookies

These are gluten-free chocolate thumbprints with these fantastic red-and-white striped Candy Cane Kisses.  I hate the milk chocolate Hershey's Kisses but love the candy cane ones!  I put the kisses on as soon as the cookies came out of the oven so they'd melt down a bit.  I think the red and white stripes definitely fit the two-colour alchemy requirement!

I love both the ornament and the entire tree, what a great way to display them!

Thanks!  And yup, Canuck here Smiley  Best part is because that tube was 100 baubles I still have some left over for the tree!  It's a pretty easy project, and I only had to remove a couple baubles to make the balance work.  I found it effective to hold a ball in place without stringing it on to see if I needed a small one or a large one as the next.

Wow, congratulations on the finished OWLs guys!  I'm not sure if mine will be done by my self-imposed date of Dec. 1, although my parents are coming for a visit so they can help baby watch while I craft  Cheesy  That quilt is great, and I'm so impressed by the dyeing attempt!  The patches are cute too.

I just realised that the Christmas wreath I made is PERFECT for the Gemino challenge!

Challenge: Gemino
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Winter Twilight wreath
Link:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417130.0

I made this using the tutorial here: http://www.eddieross.com/eddie_ross/2008/12/no-wire-hangers-well-maybe-just-one.html that's been pinned all over Pinterest, including by me.  It's at least 2/3 of a tube of 100 baubles, on a wire hanger.  I'm awfully proud of it, and it only took a couple hours (mostly because I'm finicky about colour and shape placement).
