Class: Quidditch, Keeper
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Toiletry Bags
Description:  For my Keeper project, I am crafting for a charity that collects handmade things and bundles them up for recipients in need.  They also distribute personal care items like toothpaste, brushes, etc., and need toiletry bags for all these bits and pieces.  I made two this afternoon, and will try and get some more done over the week Smiley

Class: Quidditch, Cheering/Spirit
House: Slytherin
Project: Snake hair bow
Description:

Both my kids like getting all girly, so hair pretties are in demand.  This is a simple chiffon bow made by gathering two rectangles of fabric and slapping a satin strip around the middle to hold everything in.  

I chose the olive green because it reminds me of taipans, which are common in this part of the world, and what Slytherin doesn't have a little bit of snake in them?  Mwahaha!

Class: Quidditch, Broomstick
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Flying Diagram Bookmark
Description:

I love bookmarks.  Especially pretty ones.  This is a flying instruction graphic I put together, printed on recycled paper and then glued to some sparkly card.  Did a bit of random stitching with the machine and silver thread, popping a few sequins here and there.  Finally, a ribbon tassel attached with a silver eye pin.  It's maaaaaaagic!

Class: Quidditch, Beater
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Evil Taekwondo Trousers
Description: 

A friend asked me to help her out with a taekwondo uniform that didn't fit.  The jacket was an easy fix.  The trousers... oh the trousers.  There was no way I could re-con them so I made a new pair.  Which I tried to make as close to the original as possible - you know, hems with six lines of stitching and other nonsense.  I had to do flat felled seams.  I HATE FLAT FELLED SEAMS.  Much like pregnancy, I'd rather stick a fork in my eyeball.  And then there was the weird construction.  This is the 'new technique' that very nearly beat me.  With an ugly stick.

Instead of using a typical one piece leg, or even a standard two piece leg, these pants had an inexplicable inside leg/crotch panel.  It was weird.  And difficult to sew.  I don't know what it's called.  I don't know of any other way to explain it but using a confusing diagram:



On the right you see normal trousers.  The crotch seam meets up with the inner leg seams and they all fit together nice and flat and neat.  On the left you see the mutant taekwondo pants, in which there really isn't a crotch seam, but a sort of panel thing that substitutes for the crotch and runs all the way down both inner legs.  What.  The.    I get the purpose of it - last thing you want to do when you're kicking butt and whatever is bust a seam, but dude, you could just double stitch!     



So that's me, not exactly beaten by this new technique but certainly confused.

Class: Transfiguration
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Oreo Dubloons
Brief Description: I turned mini oreo cookies into gold dubloons to decorate pirate party cupcakes!  Nomnomnom...  I just sprayed them with PME Edible Lustre Spray (Gold).  I was in a hurry so there isn't perfect coverage, but if you took a little time you could get some serious shiny money cookies.  (And yes, the chocolate cupcakes are frosted with Nutella.  Straight outta the jar, baby!)

Class: Reducio Challenge
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Tiny bakery Yummies

Brief Description: These little delights are made of marzipan.  The largest piece is the loaf of bread up the back, which is about 3cm long.  The jam drops up front are less than a cm across. 

They are for a a cake for my mum, who works at a bakery and is having a big promotion display.  There are miniature croissants, bread rolls, baguettes, custard tarts, iced donuts, cinnamon donuts, lamingtons, iced finger buns, lamington roll and jam sponge roll, bread, cob loaves, jam drop biscuits (cookies) and cupcakes. My favourite are the lamingtons cause they smell amazing. 

The breads are dusted with cinnamon to give a nice brown colour.  All the lamingtons are rolled in cocoa then dessicated coconut.  The other colours are just ordinary food colouring kneaded into the marzipan.

Having had a looooong absence with a steamroller of an illness, I am clawing my way back to normality - beginning with Quidditch!

Class: Quidditch House Cup - Chaser
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Sports Day Hair Pretty
Description:  In RL, my 8 year old is in a certain school house for sports events.  Their colour is red.  For some house pride of her own, I made a quick, simple hair accessory that has enough bling to catch the eye without being obnoxious.  It's a fabric covered button embellished with red sequins and gold thread, wreathed in pleated ribbons.  A couple of quick stitches secure it to an elastic hair tie.  Clips get lost too easily!







The girls like them so much I will probably have to make a few more.  There were arguments about who got to wear it this morning.
