Hi Guys!  Hopefully I'll be catching up our common room again over the weekend.  Here's another submission from me. Smiley

Class: Herbology
House: HoufflePouffe
Project Name: Sakura Dress for Pivi
Project Descriptions: I always associate cherry blossoms with new beginnings.  I made this dress for Pivi from cherry blossom fabric. Smiley  It's actually in 2 pieces.  I was kind of messing around, trying to see if I could make her a tiny top with darts and curved side seams, and it turned out pretty well.  Then I thought I'd try my hand at a very ruffly skirt, and THAT worked, TOO!  So together they make a 2-piece dress that I'm really pleased with.  Pivi likes it, too. Smiley

I'm teaching myself wet felting.

This was resist felted and is all one piece. The felt is inconsistent in thickness which is entirely my own fault. I was anxious to try the idea about the shape of the resist and the final product so I really was not being careful. I also made this on a smaller scale - might be large enough for a child. One thing I learned from doing it a smaller size is that some specific felting I would have liked to do became impossible. I basically was trying to save on the amount of fiber I needed while doing an experiment that I had no idea would even work. I also worked on a smaller scale because I don't really have a place where I can work with large pieces of wet felting. I did manage to expand my work area today so I will sometime set out to make another purse maybe even of a useable size! =^..^=

Prompt: May - Battle - Trains
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: -0-
Project Name: Steampunk Pendants
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I made these pendants in an attempt to create something steampunk-ish in honor of my favorite Engineer Henry Davis, who streamlined the Steam Engine. Steam punk...steam engine...trains. I was also inspired by Bunny1Kenobi who likes Steampunk but I am not positive on her feelings for trains. The inside light greenish layer glows in the dark.  Wink Oh, and I was determined to do something that wasn't sewn or drawn this month.  Grin

Note from the Headmistress...

This semester I will be offering extra Challenges.  Each Headmistress Challenge will be themed to the season, will last approximately 1 month, and will earn 15 House Points just like Classes.  So what is up next?

Headmistress Challenges - MAY
Feeding the Castle!
May 1st - 31st

Food figures prominently in the Harry Potter novels. We hear new announcements from Dumbledore during the Start-of-Term Feast, and have cozy afternoon teas with Hagrid on the weekends.  There are happy family meals with the Weasleys during the summer holidays, and trips to Honeyduke's to load up on sweets during term.  Students rest and gossip over dinner in the Great Hall, teachers socialize over drinks at the Three Broomsticks, and Fred & George nick snacks from the House Elves in the Kitchens. Clearly, food is as important in the Wizarding World as it is in the Muggle World. For this challenge you must submit a complete recipe, inspired by the world of Harry Potter.  THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A FOOD THE STUDENTS EAT IN ONE OF THE BOOKS!  You are quite welcome to try your hand at a familiar recipe like Mrs. Weasley's Onion Soup, or a cool refreshing batch of Pumpkin Juice.  But you can also make something inspired by a favorite scene, magical object, character, etc.  We all know that chocolate helps ease the symptoms of a Dementor attack, so how about making a Triple Chocolate Cake?  Can't get enough Quidditch?  Make up some Golden Snitch Cookies.  Love the scene in the Cave from Half-Blood Prince?  Why not make some Glowing-Green Potion Candy?  (Magpirate, why do I think this one has your name all over it?) If your favorite character is Mad-Eye Moody, why not honor his memory with some Firewhiskey Pork Chops?  

Just remember to explain your inspiration in your post if it isn't immediately clear, and be sure to post a complete recipe with a photo!

For more inspiration, be sure to check out the Harry Potter Recipe Thread here on Craftster, as well as some of the many fun HP inspired projects on Bakingdom.  And for those of you who are vegan, check out Dumbledore's Vegan Army which is full of fun recipes!

Please note you are welcome to do any, all or none of these challenges as they come up throughout the semester.  They are not intended to cause stress, but are instead intended to get your crafty Muses singing.  None of the HPC staff will complete ALL the classes and challenges posted this semester.  So relax, and craft what you eat.

Digging the new prompts!  Thanks, Lovely Miss!

Craft room progress:

In addition to the (reduced) chaos shown here, I have yet to tackle the huge cupboard and the shelves near the door.  And I've discovered that there will be absolutely NO color scheme to this room, no theme....  at least, not right now.  Perhaps eventually I will get that ambitious, but for now I'll just be happy with an organized space.

I received yesterday from gala_apples.  She sent me a huge magnet set of first initials of the characters in Boy Meets World/Girl Meets World.  Two hooplas for my hoopla wall. The larger says "Where's Carl?" From my Walking Dead fandom, and the smaller says "Baby Girl, Pretty Boy, Sugar Shack" which his the flirting between Morgan and Garcia in Criminal Minds, small notecards with Doctor Who saying, and Tardis inspired earrings as an extra.

Close up of the hoops--I am the lucky recipient of her first ever embroidery!

Thank you so much!

I just finished this dress and wanted to share it with you. CCW! It's my own pattern but I never made it with non stretch fabric before so there's not really enough room in the bust, makes me look a bit flat but that's not the end of the world.
You wouldn't believe how many times I ironed this dress and it's still super wrinkly..

Thanks for looking!

Here is yet another pair of painted toddler shoes for my Facebook mommy group.  ^_^  Yes, expect to see more!  I've been busy this week!  Here is Minnie Mouse!  My mommy friend opted for the pink version Minnie Mouse instead of the red.  These are done on plain canvas shoes with tulip soft fabric paints and a brush.

Thanks for looking!
