Tranfiguration Class
Transforming Ribbons into a Rose
House:  Hufflepuff
Project Name: Making a Blended Tea Rose
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: What could be better than transforming simple pieces of cloth into one of the most beautiful flowers?  I found the spell in an book of beautiful arcane magic by Helen Gibb.  Though I once practised this spell when I was younger it has been a long time since I have tried such a complicated spell.  It takes about 8 hours of intense study but the reward is great and beautiful magic.
Project Picture:


I hope that this is an acceptable project for the Transfiguration class.

That's beautiful madcrafter!  It'd make a wonderful brooch!  Does it have a button built into it somewhere?  It needs one I think to be for transfiguration.

So Daddy-daughter day did in fact yield crafty time! 

Class: Transfiguration
House: Gryffindor
Project name: Berry bow

I made baby girl another headband (poor little bald girl keeps getting called a boy), and I have these great red buttons with strawberries on them.  It turned out pretty cute, but it's a bit tight so I may have to cut the bow off and attach it to a longer elastic.




I also have a sneak peek of my sampler - hello Jemima and Mrs. Tiggywinkle!



They don't have their outline stitch yet though.

Hello everyone!
I'm so impressed with the set up you ladies have created- Amazing!

Tiamatfire, that sampler: wow!

Prof. Pinkleo: Love the colors and the pattern for the wrap, I may have to add that to my "To make" list!

And finally, Thanks to Lightninglisa for takingthe reins in Slytherin.  You rock!

Now I'm off to the library for some planning, by way of Hagrid's for tea of course!

Have a great night, everyone!

Proposing my OWL:

OWL Subject & Option: Astronomy, Option 3
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Magic Mosaic
Brief Description: The plan is to construct a paper mosaic using magazines, books, postcards, various ephemera to create an image. This may take a while, seeing as how I do not subscribe to magazines and "The Watchtower" ladies are only in the neighbourhood once a month.  Cheesy The paper scraps will be adhered to a canvas, so (if it looks reasonably nice) it can double as wall art. Never attempted this type of art before so I expect it to be a prolonged project, a several weeks for sure.

Hi madcrafter!  That is one beautiful piece!  But tiamatfire is right; to complete Transfiguration for the Fall Semester your project must have one button within its design.
Quote
---Transfiguration: For the Fall Semester, we shall practice turning beetles into buttons.  Swish your wand like so and tap the beetle lightly; take care to neither stab your beetle with your wand or squash it with your elbow - they are not invincible.  Now that you have a perfect pile of buttons; you must create something that incorporates one or more buttons into its design.
Our class prompts are there to simulate our crafty creativity.

Now, I do believe that your project would fulfill the fall Herbology class.  The prompt is:
Quote
---Herbology: Plants are so versatile!  They can be used in potions and cures, like say a Mandrake Restorative Draught to cure those how have been petrified.  It can also be used to guard precious object, for instance Devil's Snare.  Plants can also be part of your crafting adventures!  Craft something with the use of plants, or as the focus of your crafts!

If you would like to submit your gorgeous rose for Herbology, either edit your post or just add a reply in this thread.

tiamatfire: SO ADORABLE!  And I love your OWL sneak peek.  Adding the outlines is my fave part; it really brings the project alive.

sakuracat23: Love Owl Cozy!  Kiss for the links!  (and let it be known that I suffer from Crafty ADHD, which is why I'm happy to have Detention...I need that kick in the butt to get moving)

pottermouth: This OWL sounds amazing and is truly going to be a labor of love.  If you are looking for some cheap magazines or books, I know my used bookstore and thrift stores sell them for as little as 5cents.  ~*OWL approved*~

Tranfiguration Class
Transforming Ribbons into a Button Rose
House:  Hufflepuff
Project Name: Making a Ribbon Button Rose
Project Page Link (if available):





The button!  I was being a daft bimbo again!  So I went back to my ribbons and made a button rose brooch!  It uses a button for the center and then the last three petals cover it so the button peeks out.  It took only 4 hours and this is again from an arcane spell book by Helen Gibb.

A lot of witches think that this is a difficult spell and requires lots of magical equipment, they are wrong.  Ribbon flowers are sadly just magic from a past era.  First any fabric ribbon can be used.  However muggles use magic ribbon with wire on the edges!  I've actually seen some!  Stay away from that and get some unmagical ribbon.  The real magic is a spell put on the needle.  The needle will take off and sculpt beautiful petals.  Just remember that the number of times you tap the wand is how many petals the needle makes.  Once my Aunt was making flowers with us and couldn't stop sneezing and the air was full of petals!  I recommend this craft to other witches.  Oh, one more hint.  You may want to buy a magic potion call fray check, it comes in small bottles and is inexpensive.  I hope this is an exceptable project for class.

Thank you for the help!  I will enter it in Herbology.
