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.

Beautifully made.  The peter pan collar really sets it off.

Both delightful and inspiring.  You're not just crafting a very cool toy, you're crafting a childhood.

Something pretty!  Yeay!





There's an amazing boutique/coffee shop/chocolatier around here, whose giftshop is always full of the most beautiful, inspiring things.  On a visit a while back (probably a year or two) I saw a gorgeous sprocket pillow and HAD TO HAVE ONE.  Except it was pink.  I have two young daughters, there is enough pink in my life already.  And it was $120.  Even for a very pretty pillow, that's pushing things.  My crafty shoulder angels duked it out...



You can guess who won.  

I spent a week adding little appliques, embroidery and beading details to the cushion top:



It got sewed together Wednesday night (State of Origin!  Well done, NSW.  We'll let you have that one ;P )... and last night, I stuffed it with 4x500g bag of polyester fill.

It's 68cm across, and about 30cm tall, which is a bit bigger than the shop pillow.  Very comfy to flop on!  And my purse is happy.  It cost less than $30 to DIY.  

Forgot to mention - this project is my 'Detention with Snape' requirement in the Harry Potter craftalong!

Everyone is making such great stuff!  Love that yarn, shannin.  I've finished my Detention project tonight (yeay!) but the light stinks so I have to wait until I can get decent pics to post.
