QUIDDITCH CHALLENGE -- Ravenclaw House
I'm afraid I'm a poor Quidditch player, but I gave it a go anyway.

~*Beater (20 pts): Don't get beat by something new, try a new-to-you technique or material.



I needed a new belt and it's hard to find women's belts that I like, that fit, and that aren't totally shoddy. I've been meaning to sew a simple D-ring belt all summer, but when the Beater challenge came up I decided to try making version of the Tunisian crochet belt that I saw on the program Knit and Crochet Today. It was my first time trying Tunisian crochet (aka Afghan stitch and a few other names), and, although there were a couple of false starts, it was fun to do. I like the grid-like texture it makes on the right side. I enjoyed making it so much I made my belt a good seven inches too long and had to unravel!

~*Seeker (20pts): Get the Snitch or die trying.  Craft something with a snitch



Not sure what to do, I decided to do something I hadn't done in a few years: play with Shrinky Dinks. I'd never used the Crystal Clear Shrinky Dinks at all, only the classic Frosted kind, so I just experimented a little with markers and a touch of acrylic paint and made some Snitch charms.

~*Broomstick (20pts): What would quidditch be without a broom?  Craft an item featuring a broom or inspired by your favorite broomstick.



More SD charms. As you can see, these aren't sleek racing brooms. I went more for the family broomstick; the darker one especially seems designed to cater to the ample-bottomed witch or wizard. The little one is obviously a toy broomstick.   Cheesy


[ETA my house name.]

I've been catching up on the thread. There's so much cool stuff it's hard to keep track of!

Avesthel, I thought your shawl pin was copper until I read your description. I like it a lot.

Pinkleo, your paw print shirt is really cute and I love the fiery, phoenix-like effect of the yarn in your Gryffindor slippers.

Lightninglisa, I'll bet those snitches look great on your Christmas tree this year.

Aliis, broomstick pasta deserves some kind of creativity prize. Or a patience prize for making all those thin cuts and having to roll up the dough after.

Well, one of the pipes joints came loose due to pressure (clog created by my hubby, who still hasn't figured out you can not cram anything&everything, at once into the drain); then tons of water and gunk explosively spewed everywhere in my kitchen!  (Of course hubby is not around for this bit)


And I just posted my free crochet pattern for the Puff Mitts!  Enjoy everyone! Grin

Quidditch Challenge: Broom
Project: Zoom Zoom! I'm "Writing" with my Broom!
House GRYFFINDOR!!!

I came up with this idea at like 3 am (which, of course, are usually the BEST ideas). I wanted to do a broom project that someone hadn't done before and I've been DYING to try those hot glue wands for a while. So...with some twine and a little paint (which needs a second coat and some sealer Tongue ) and a LOT of hot glue, I give you my Broom Pen!



Quidditch Challenge: KEEPER
Project: Project Linus Submission
House GRYFFINDOR!!!

 So I was browsing S.P.E.W, the genius Charity page our wonderful Headmistress put together for us (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=412546.0) and I stumbled upon a link called Project Linus. And it collects blankets for children 0-18 that are severely sick. And---I started crying immediately so naturally I contacted the lady in charge of our local branch and I've informed her I will be sending her my submission soon. As a child my blanket went EVERYWHERE with me. I would sit and wait at the washer and dryer crying until mom pulled the thing out adn gave it back to me. I remember rubbing the raw silk binding on it as I fell asleep at night because it soothed me. My Grandmother made it for me and I still have it. My poor "Kee kee" has seen better days I think Cheesy But I believe EVERY child needs a blanket. So this is my submission; one of many.




And.....I did a project that doesn't really fit anywhere Tongue

As I said before I'd been DYING to try those hot glue chop stick wands that are so popular on pinterest now. But I don't really have a USE for chop stick wants so I think: "Hmmz....how can this work for me?" Then EPIPHANY--PEN WANDS. I write all the time and what better utensil to use than my own mini wand?! The ones featured need a second coat of paint and sealant but I thought I'd post them in my excitement! The black one is my version of the Elder wand and the other one is my favorite. It looks like a broken off twig from the whomping willow  Cheesy




I have two ADORABLE things to make for my house pride, my keeper challenge and Snitch challenge and then I think I'll be done! ROAR ROAR GRYFFINDOR!!!
