*ACTION SHOTS* now on page 4

**new pics on page 2**

The release of the Deathly Hallows was a great excuse for me to do some crafting, since I work in a bookstore. We didn't have a midnight release party, but we did open super early Saturday morning, and had lots of decorations and stuff.

I really wanted a little purple sweater, so I decided to dress up as Luna. I ventured into the realm of polymer clay for the first time, to make her radish earrings:




And made a cork necklace, to keep away nargles:




And decoupaged a Luna quote on the bottom:




I also wanted to make a little cardigan like the one Luna wears in the OOTP movie. I dont crochet, so I found a knitting pattern I thought would look similar (cloud bolero by ysolda) and knit it in a similar colour. People recognized it, so I guess it was close enough Smiley



I also made a pair of pants based on ones Luna wore in OOTP, and also put crazy shoelaces in my all stars like Luna's. I'm hoping to get some pictures from my coworker, since I forgot my camera that day. Then I will post action shots! And hopefully pics of the pants and shoes if they don't turn up well in her photos.

I also made a bunch of buttons. Some to give away to kids coming to get the book:





And some for those of us working to wear:




And wands! These were everyones favourite! People kept asking to buy them, so we started giving them away for a donation to charity.   They are based on the tutorial here. I ended up making a few more batches, but only took pictures of the first one:



Hope you like my HP stuff Cheesy Hopefully I'll be able to get those action shots soon.

Aw, thanks guys, I'm glad you like everything!

The wands are probably the most successful craft I've ever done, in terms of people liking and commenting on them. Too bad it wasn't my idea  Undecided

Great work on everything! I really like that bolero. What kind of yarn did you use?

Gracias! I have yarn about that color, too, and I was wondering if it'd work for this project.

The pattern seems to suit any type of yarn really. If you search around on flickr, you'll see it in bulky weight, etc... The pattern was designed by a craftster (ysolda) who was super helpful when I realised I can't count! Cheesy

I'll have a look-see at flickr... it's cool to see everybody's interpretations of patterns I'm considering. Thanks for the suggestion!  Smiley
