I swap angelled for umbrolly.  Hopefully she's got better pics than I do.

But here's one thing I'm totally excited about:



bad picture, good phoenix!  first "soft sculpture" kind of thing I've made.

i guess Umbrolly's camera isn't up to snuff right now.

here's pictures!

everything all at once:


She really likes Luna, so here's Luna's patronus:


Luna's post graduate field guide to gather notes on allegedly imaginary creatures:


Some bookmarks:
(I stained the paper red to get the right color - I didn't have the right shade of crimson)

A necklace based off the watery shackles that held Potter's friends and schoolmates in the Goblet of Fire:



And the phoenix!  He's felt, with seed bead and sequin eyes and his tail feathers are made of ... feathers.  Fiberfill stuffing.  No pattern, I just kind of figured out how to make an upright bird shape.  He has a miniature red wool scarf which is itchy, but flameproof (uh, not really flameproof - don't try to light him/it on fire)




there's also a large ball of deep greenish blue peacock kind of color chenille-like yarn.  I thought it was something someone who liked Luna would like Smiley

Great job h_pets360. I would've never thought to make a patronus, the field guide made me giggle.

the "patronus" was actually preformed.  i just painted it.  i made it fairly non-detailed, and painted it with white and silver mixed, to make it seem more, well, like a patronus.  i figured the silver details would be better than pink/black for the subject matter.
i was looking around the craft store and happened to glance at a little tan bunny, and it just kind of rolled around in my mind from there...
