Here is my end of the semester project turn in.  I'll be back tomorrow to update Ravenclaw Tower and work on end of semestery things.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Anchors Away Bracelet
Brief Description: I was inspired by the sea in creating this bracelet.  I found an anchor charm and used hemp cord in three shades of blue to create a simple wrap bracelet.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Embroidery Floss Organization
Brief Description: For years my embroidery floss has been a mess. It was just kept loose in a small plastic bin that would require me to go through every skein each time I started a new project.  I didnt want to go the cardboard bobbin route (I knew I would never wind all those little things) so I needed a new idea.  While walking through The Container Store I came across a photo organizer and decided it would be prefect.  I put each skein in a snack sized zip top back (with a notecard for stability) labeled the front and placed them in in number order.  It is so much better!!!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Confetti Thank You Card
Brief Description: I needed a card to thank my neighbor for watering my plants while I was out of town so I made a simple one with black graphic text and magic maker confetti.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Boho Dreamcatcher
Brief Description: Dreamcatchers are made to filter out all bad dreams and only allow good thoughts to enter our mind while we are a sleep.  I made this dreamcatcher for Mistress Jennie for the Dreamcatcher Swap earlier this semester.  I made it in a purple and cream boho style using leather cording, lace and velvet.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Floating Rainbow Owls
Brief Description: Birds often look as they are hovering in the air, especially predatory birds like owls as they hunt for noms.  For this craft I used an owl shaped punch and paint chips to make a rainbow of birds.  I used mounting tape to make the owls look like they are hovering off the picture frame.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Zipper Key Pouch
Brief Description: When I go for a walk I like to make sure I have my keys, my ID and maybe my debit card or some cash (because sometimes things happen) but I dont want to bring my purse or stuff everything into my bra so I made a little pouch with card slots, a zipper compartment and a key ring.  The tutorial can be found here
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: July Detention
SPEW: N/A
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Quilters Ironing Board
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: As a quilter I often find myself fighting with my ironing board.  Its not sturdy enough and there is never enough room for my quilt and the iron and you loose so much work space by the end that tapers into a point. So I decided to make something better.  I took me a couple months to decide what I wanted, figure out how to make it and actually get the stuff and actually do it.  I made the top out of a piece of plywood cut to 24x 60.  I then traced the shape of my ironing board onto the wood and used that as a guideline to add brackets to keep it on the top of the metal ironing board.  To finish it off I covered the top with a layer of Insulbrite, two layers of 100% cotton quilt batting and a layer of home decor weight fabric.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: August Detention
SPEW: N/A
House: RAvenclaw
Project Name: Crab Shack Coasters
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I found an extra charm pack floating around in my fabric stash so I decided they would be prefect to use for a set of coasters.  They are two charm squares with batting sandwiched in-between and then top stitched round the edge.  The great part about repetitive projects like this is they can be sewn in an assembly line.

I also received from artsycandice and she's perfect - perfectly Picasso-esque!



Like the others, she is hand-painted.



Look at the detail! Here's the tail:



And a gorgeous card and extra piece of fabric accompanied her to San Francisco:



Thanks so much, Candice. I'm cutting up all my scraps to make a scrappy quilt so this piece of green will fit nicely!

Oh, happy day!

Members of my family run a couple microbreweries.  They sent me a box full of grain bags.  I am upcycling them into bags and things.  This is a prototype for a messenger bag.

I need to mess with the proportions a bit but I do like how the round flap came out.  It currently doesn't have a closure.  Does it need one?  Magnetic? Button?  Velcro?  Suggestions please.

More pics on my blog.  http://twasbrilligand.blogspot.com/2014/08/prototype.html  [img

That's true. I'm still shocked by the whole ordeal, so forgive the photo quality.

Everything together:


The front of the coin purse (featuring Holden from Catcher in the Rye)


And my personal favorite part (oh the irony):


The quote says "People are always ruining things for you."

Thank you so much again, goldfishpollywog! And I'm sorry that I have such a crappy apartment manager! (Actually she isn't that bad, the situation just stunk!)  Grin

I'm so glad you both liked your cards! I've been having a lot of fun recently getting back into all sorts of artsy things I forgot I liked to do. Rediscovering painting was one of them! I'm not particularly good at it but it sure is fun to mix up some paint and brush it onto a page. ^__^

I received from cmarion3 today! My theme was feminism.





She sent me two cards because she said she got overenthusiastic. I hear ya on that one! I love them both! I had never heard the quote by Rebeca West before but thought it was pretty great. Also I love the colors and textures of the paper! Thank you so much!!! Cheesy

Okay, if you saw my list of planned projects and compared it to the projects I am posting, you would see little similarity. Grand plans modified greatly! But, once I looked at the items I'd recently made for swaps (plus a few other summer projects), I realized I had fulfilled quite a few prompts. I have a few more finished, but I need to take photos tomorrow.

For now...

Prompt:  August Battle- Water
Team: Textbook
Event: Yarnology
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Sailor's Knot Dishcloth
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: Sailors obviously need water for sailing, and another thing sailors need is knots. This dishcloth is reminiscent of a Turkish knot (sort of) which is often used as a stopper knot around a cylindrical object. I actually stitched most of it during our all-district staff meeting earlier this week, while listening to speeches & presentations (2 1/2 hours worth...) and it helped me to pay attention and not fidget (and wonder "Is it almost over?" every 5 minutes)! When I got home, I just had to finish the last piece and assemble it.

Project Picture:





Prompt:  August Mob- Happiness Month!
Team: Textbook
Event: Fabricology
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Science Pun Bag
Project Link: n/a

Project Picture:






Prompt:  June-  Onomatopoeia: Zip!!
Team: Textbook
Event: Fabricology
Bonus Points: n/a

As part of my personal destashing goals, I decided that I am going to do a scrap project each week.  Scrap yarn, scrap fabric, scrap papers, etc.

Here is my project for 9/1:

I started with scraps left over from cutting out quilt pieces and some old recipe card stock I found in my Mom's basement:



I glue and sewed the scraps on the cards to make these:



I then used my heart stencils to cut out hearts. Glued them on and used a mix of glitter and glue to go around the edges....ta da--much needed notecards for swaps! Grin



I still have tons of scraps so I will be on the hunt for more easy and fun projects!

Thanks for looking!

I received two items from the Frugal Living Swap today!

Banana-Pineapple Nut Bread


It came in handy when I needed a snack.


I also got a set of much needed notecards!  They are made from leftover scraps from her quilting projects and kraft paper--how frugal!


She said to overlook her dog hair carpet...she was not feeling 100% today and did not get a chance to vacuum! Grin
