Class: charms
House: Slytherin
Project: fun and lively monogram modern art painting

I had to make this example for a craft camp I'll be teaching at work and thought it was perfect for this assignment because not only is the painting itself fun and lively but so is the craft camp!



Class: muggle studies
House: Slytherin
Project: "cool" wall sign

This wall sign was super fun to make. It's another project I made as an example for a kids' craft class at work. First I taped off the stripes and painted the canvas. When it dried I pulled off the tape to reveal some nice even stripes. The word is made from yarn but the hidden element is the pipe cleaners the yard is wrapped around in order to give the word a wire structure to make it capable of bending into letters.

That play dress is adorable, midkiffsjoy! I have been wanting to get better at repurposing fashion.

Challenge: may detention
House: Slytherin
Project: tunic top

I had the fabric and the pattern for this hanging out for a while and I finally put it together I'm pleased with how it turned out. It's actually supposed to be a dress but I guess the misses pattern was too short for my women's body lol. Anyway, it made a nice top so crisis averted!

Challenge: house pride
House: Slytherin
SPEW: skirt for medical mission to Marshall Islands
Project: green skirt



Challenge: house unity
House: Slytherin
Project: spring flower pens to cheer up those long hours of homework. What a nice thing to unify the houses: a bouquet of flower pens to share around.





Challenge: headmistress challenge: May
House: Slytherin
Project: lots and lots of dinosaur shirts. These were screen printed by hand by me and they took more than three hours and are multiples of the same item







Challenge: February detention
House: Slytherin
Project: pop art valentine card



(The bottom left one)

Challenge: March detention
House: Slytherin
Project: squidbear drawing
My drawing skill is constantly a work in progress and I am constantly challenging myself to solve new problems with drawing and this squidbear is a part of that process



Challenge: April detention
House: Slytherin
Project: horse costume
This fits the assignment because... Well it's a long story... But basically I was coerced into making this horse costume by a person that came up to me at work and asked for help and somehow her asking for my advice turned into to me making it for her??? I have no idea how I let that happen, but I found myself with a bag full of fleece and the directive to make a horse costume for a three year old out of it somehow. Oh and it had to be done by the end of the next day. I definitely felt clowned by this challenge lol. Anyway, after the idea of using a hooded towel tutorial as a spring board came to me in my sleep I was able to come up with this costume in time:





In the end I was pretty proud of what I was able to come up with on the fly like that but I really need to learn to say "no" sometimes.

Class: history of magic
House: Slytherin
Project: flower drawing
Drawing is something that I have been doing since I was a very young child. Whenever I get stuck in my art or I need new inspiration I always get back to my roots with basic drawing and find myself again there.



Class: potions
House: Slytherin
Project: abstract valentine card
To have the instinct to creat abstract art you can't be afraid to let the absurd come out of your pen.



This is for the one on the bottom right.

Class: study of ancient runes
House: Slytherin
Project: band patches. My rock band is something that I feel like I was born to do and these patches are for the purpose of giving to people who like my music in order to spread the word. I screen printed and designed them myself.







Class: transfiguration
House: Slytherin
Project: Dip dyed pots
These are perfect to celebrate spring with the soft cheery color that the fabric dye creates on the pot. ( this is for the pot only not the flower pens)

Class: Charms
House: Slytherin
Project: my first screen printed shirt
This one shirt fits the prompt because it was the end result of a four week screen printing class where I learned how to take my original illustration from a page in my sketch book to a screen printed product







Class: defense against the dark arts
House: Slytherin
Project: fish cake. At my job I make people awake and aware of new crafting techniques. This fish cake is something I made in that process. I have taught several kids how to decorate this fish cake.





Here are some made by some of the kids I taught:





Class: divination
House: Slytherin
Project: Mendhi cookies
These cookies are another teaching demonstration I did for work they fit the class because they use repeated geometric patterns to create the henna tattoo like designs. Also I find it physically comforting and zen like to decorate cookies.



Class: Flying
House: Slytherin
Project: painting with a fiber element. The broom plant is very fibrous so I used that as an inspiration to add a fiber aspect to one of my paintings my sewing and weaving right onto the paper

Class: alchemy
House: Slytherin
Project: for this project I made a hand illustrated greeting card for an art market because for a long time I had given up on street markets and this was me giving myself a new chance at participating in them.



Note: this prompt is for the one on the top the other two will be turned in for other classes.

Class: apparition
House: Slytherin
SPEW: made for a medical mission to The Marshall Islands
Project: skirt for doctor to wear and then leave for one of the local people to have.
My cousin is a doctor and she went to the Marshall Islands on a humanitarian mission to treat and track various health problems experienced by the Marshallese people due to lasting effects from atomic testing done there in the past by the United States. She had me make her several skirts to wear and then leave for the local people she worked with. This blue one was the first one and it had to be fixed a few times until I got it right.




Class: Astronomy
House: Slytherin
Project: pink pin-tucked star skirt
I just had to have this awesome pink pin-tucked fabric when I saw it in the clearance section. I really enjoy this skirt I made with it and it fits the prompt because of the three appliqud stars.



Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Slytherin
Project: Keroppi Skirt
I only had one yard of this fabric so I had to make sure what I made with it fit into that one yard. I'm a bigger girl so the skirt I made definitely filled the space of that one yard of fabric.

So excited to be starting a new term. I love all of the class prompts so much this time. They represent such a potential for personal growth! I don't want to miss any of them, so I already have some homework to turn in.

Class/challenge: Arithmancy
House: Slytherin
Project: fingerless gloves

This project fits the prompt because there are two of them. And because they match the dress in the picture they create balance and harmony in the ensemble.



Class/challenge: herbology
House: Slytherin
Project: groundhog's day illustration

This fits the class because I have never drawn a groundhog before.



Class/challenge: muggle studies
House: Slytherin
Project: plus size rockstar dress

This fits the project because it illustrates my belief that people of all sizes can be sassy and stylish and deserve to wear clothes they love.

I made this dinosaur dress and it turned out to be one of my favorite things to wear! It's a mccall's pattern, I posted a pic of which one below I love the pattern so much I'm definitely going to use it again.
