Congratulations Pinkleo!  It's a great afghan!

Oh Patty_O, I'm impressed you didn't yell.  I don't think I'd have been able to contain myself Sad  Great cake too - I'd love to try it but I don't think a GF batter would hold up to rolling!

Maman, that's such a nice idea!  And your pony is great Smiley

Freakie, the shirt is really cute!  If you wanted to you could always put in a decorative lace panel or beaded panel if you're uncomfortable with the neckline. 

Eiseldora, that shawl is really nice!  I'm sure your MIL really appreciates it.

OK I'm antibiotic number 2 so who knows when I'm going to be healthy enough to take nice pictures with my pretty locket horcrux, so I'm going to take pictures of it laying flat instead so I can become a member of the order!

Challenge: Tom Riddle's Diary
House: Gryffindor
Name: Deconstructed/Reconstructed Vintage Apron

I did a picture diary of taking apart a vintage apron to use it as a pattern, and then remade it as a present!  I actually made two, one for my Mom and one for my sister, though that's really here nor there!

I found a really great vintage apron at the thrift store a few years ago, and luckily it fit me!  It was such a neat concept (a bib that flipped over your head and buttoned to the skirt in back) that I knew I would take it apart to make a pattern, especially since the original fabric was really worn, faded, and a rather ugly colour.  I finally decided to do it about a month ago (yes, it's been waiting that long both to get done, and then to get posted).




I then labelled seams with permanent marker, and started to seam rip, also taking off the bias tape wherever it interfered with deconstruction.  It was applied around all the edges over the raw edge as well as over the pocket tops.



Laying out the pieces on the new fabric, with marked darts, etc.



Sewn darts and hemmed and topped pockets.



Pockets sewn to skirt pieces.



Skirt pieces sewn in place to bodice.



Annnnd I forgot pictures of the last two steps - attaching the facing to the front neck and sewing the back to the shoulders. But here's the finished piece!





It's a little tight around the middle for my mom (it finishes as a 26" waist) so she's just adding a little loop to attach one side of the skirt to the button.  It fits my sister nearly perfectly though, although slightly long because she's short.


Challenge: Salazaar Slytherin's Locket
House: Gryffindor
Name: Evelyn's Scarf

I went back to work recently after my year of maternity leave, and I wanted to make something for my new office job that also wove in all my happy thoughts and memories of taking care of my daughter.  I knit this scarf during our last weeks home together, while she was napping, and while I watched her learn to run and while we read stories.  It's everything a locket embodies for me: a memory of a loved one to wear close to the heart.

FreakieGeekie: I'm sorry that your Snape is being so difficult, how very like him.  Perhaps you could recommend that he wear a tea towel in support of House Elf rights? I bet he'd get in line then!

Patty-O- Oh no!! The kids must've felt so.bad. Kudos for you to be able to check yourself from responding instinctually. You're a good woman.

Everyone's assignments have been great, keep up the good work! It's been a while since I handed anything in bc I am knitting wedding favors for a friend- tiny wee Jayne Cobb hats (Don't tell Fox!) These Tiny pompoms may be the death of me.

Ant Bee, it's funny that you mentioned giving him a tea towel because my dad suggested that. Said make Snape a House Elf instead of worrying about sewing his clothes.

Great minds think alike! Smiley

And you know, you did complete the doll and that is something to be proud of. Just because he's being picky about his wardrobe doesn't take that accomplishment away.  Let him scowl in a corner for a bit until you feel inspired to do something new about his clothes. Crafting should be mostly fun, or at least not maddening to a great degree! And maybe you'll stumble upon the best fabric ever that just begs to be Snape clothes... then you will feel the fun of it again. Just a thought.

True. I have LOTS of fabric to go through so I should be able to find something to put him in.

i'm working on the accio books challenge. the books my kids have grown out of were an easy sort, even though we did have to reread and keep a few for sentimental reasons. the chapter books are a little harder.

How many copies of "harry Potter and the sorcerors stone" do we actually need? i upset my daughter when i used the cover from our most beat up paperback to make book marks. we still have 1 hardback copy, and 4 paperback copies. it's a bit of an addiction, i can't pass one by when i see it at a garage sale.

my daughter was reading "the order of the phoenix" and the cover was half falling off. it turned out that it wasn't our copy, she had started it at school, and brought the classroom copy home so she could read it on the bus. i hadn't realizes that teachers kept their own class room librarys in addition to the school library.

Note from the Deputy Headmistress...

Hello friends!  Yesterday I was interrupted while updating my Witch of the Week post.  When one of my students came in to get some help on a project while I was typing it up, I hit "Save" and "Post" on my two open tabs, and forgot to add in the special note I had planned on including... 

This week, in addition to pinkleo being named out Witch of the Week for her Outstanding House Unity Afghan, I am also bestowing a very special "Honorable Mention" on Ant Bee, for all her excellent work on behalf of S.P.E.W. 

Each of us has different commitments in our lives, and different levels of time to allocate to charity work.  Whether you are able to spend all your crafting time on charity projects, or if you only spend a moment writing a cheering note to someone posting a S.P.E.W. project, your efforts are appreciated here.  Each week Ant Bee spends time cheering us all on, and I for one find her posts incredibly encouraging, in an often discouraging world.  The greatest weapon we have is love.  And the greatest gift we can give another person is hope.

Cheers to you Ant Bee.

Hahaha! I have that affliction, too. Won't share how many "craft copies" I have stashed! I am working on my studies, I promise, and reading along as everyone adds great projects, and as soon as End-of-the-Year Exams are finished at our house I will be more involved. Great work everyone!
