Challenge: March Detention
House: ravenclaw
Project:
so, I did these little patches of knitting a couple months ago just to practice my purl stitch before i started the cowls I made last term - really I should not have cast off, so I could just unravel and reuse the wool, but, well, I didn't think of that at the time. So i have been meaning to 'do something' with them ever since - they are quite badly knitted, really uneven stitches, but i hate to waste things so I was determined to find a home for them.

and then reading the detention challenge to finish up a WIP, I knew I wanted to 'finish' them into something - and I decided I could make mug hugs, to throw in my bag so I don't have to take a cardboard one when I buy tea in the morning; it doesn't matter too much what they look like since only I will see them, and anyway anything in my bag gets battered (snagged on my wand, stuck to loose puking pastilles, covered in spilt ink...). So I did my best to tidy them up, sewing in loose ends, and added a button and french-knitted loop to each - they are nice and stretchy so I can even fit them around a large coffee on very early rehearsal days Cheesy
Maybe not quite good enough for hermione, but then she would never be in detention anyway!!

Fellow students, I should let you know that at the end of last term I withdrew my ongoing OWL project, primarily because I was no longer enjoying working on it; I have put the work to one side and will return to it in time. However, I feel that I am aware of the mistake I made that led to the project becoming so overwhelming
- not enough planning - I had no clear idea of the end result when I began
- too large a project, it was unmanageable within my real life.

and I hope that in my new Owl proposal I have addressed both these issues. that is why I am making proposing not to finish an entire project, but instead to reach an specific target within that project first. I think my breaking it down into steps this way I am more likely to succeed Smiley I hope that is acceptable to the headmistresses

OWL Subject & Option: Potions Option 1 (work with many ingredients by showcasing at least 3 different colours/pattern/textures)
House: ravenclaw
Project Name: Playmat Step one, 4 Feely squares
Brief Description:
My cousin & wife are having their second child! Hurrah!
My mum swore she told me a month ago, but on further investigation it seems she did not text me, but one of her colleagues with the same name! Opps! anyway, I know now Smiley

I have talked to a number of my friends who are parents and planned (yes, actually planned) a cloth playmat to make them

I have also planned my methods of construction - all hand-sewing, and I know what stitches where etc (I also have more detailed sketches of each square and how it will be made & joined to the backing. But these will not be understand to any but those few runes students who have taken extra classes in Noodley-shorthand)
I have planned my materials to ensure the whole thing will be washable - cotton top fabrics on a double layer of linen base, with bias binding finish. and because i have the best boyfriend ever I also have all my main fabrics brought for me today (SPOILT!! he says since I made the presents he should pay for the supplies)

The playmat will be 9 squares arrange to form a big square, the outer 8 squares will be 4 'feely squares' and 4 'play squares'.
I propose for this OWL to make the 4 feely squares (the red ones in the image) and attach them to the backing.
These 4 feely squares will be 4 different textures made from various materials underneath printed cotton;
 -crinkley (crinkle fabric beneath cotton)
 - bumpy (washable rubber beads beneath cotton with additional sewing to bring out texture)
 - squeaky  (squashable toy squeaker beneath cotton with additional sewing to bring out texture)
- folds (folds sewn into cotton).

I will aim to complete one square a week and so finish the OWL in 4 weeks (in the unlikely event of my finishing early I can also incorporate the centre patch into my OWL)

I hope this plan meets with the examiners approval!!
