I wanna be on this list to be adopted too. I am even willing to bring my own box if that moves me closer to the top of the list. Grin

This is truly awesome.  Great work.

This is so very cute. You did a great job, and the story of her bum being her head was so funny.

I love her and soo added her to the "I need to make this one day list."

Thank you for sharing the pattern.

Class : Detention with Snape
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Monster Portaits
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410070.msg4841427
Brief Description: "family portraits" of myself and my boys for my art wall.  This project has been waiting and waiting for me to get up the courage to actually put paint onto canvas.  The canvas has been mocking me for maybe 6 months now, but I kept worrying about messing things up.  But now that they are done I love them.

Nothing better than detention to get a person motivated.  Grin

I am in the process of slowly creating an art wall along one long boring wall in my living room.  What is an art wall with no family portraits? Well what if you are a family of camera shy sillies? Some crafty goodness to the rescue...  I would paint "portraits" of my boys and myself for the wall.

I wisted the monster portrait here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=386522.0 by myloveasdeep when I saw it a long time ago, and knew it was the perfect idea for those portraits I needed.

So here they are ready for hanging on the wall...

Boy 2 (who asked if I would remove the braces when he gets them off this summer. hehehe)

This is my care of magical creatures submission for the HP Summer Session.

Meet Toothless

 (yes I know different book/movie)

When I decided to make a dragon for my care of magical creatures assignment.  There could only be one choice, even if it meant tiptoeing out of the HP universe.  One of our favorite dragons around here is definitely Toothless from "How to Train Your Dragon."

He is made using material from a pair of super soft pants I bought at our local Salvation army, at 25 Tuesday.   Grin  Using this tutorial from Katy-A on deviantart. 

With just a few changes:
My Toothless is scaled down a little. I needed to make sure I would have enough material and space is tight around here so we needed the smallest dragon that was reasonable.
Wing tip to wing tip, he is 18 inches. Nose to tail, he is 14 inches.
I also added pipe cleaner to the upper part of the wings so I could flex them and have them keep their shape.

A detail shot of his missing tail fin.

Which I will make a prothetic for when I can get back to 25 Tuesday and find a suitable leathery fabric.

It is so hard to get really good pictures of all that black.

WOW teag! I loved the little Avarifae in his first solo pictures. Such a great expression on his face.  But then watching him multiply in each picture, I was just blown away.  You really are amazing with mixing story telling and crafting.  Just awesome.

First some answers:
@ Ruby Copperhead: The shirt was approved.  YAY.
@ wifeofbath: the spiders are actually made with both. The bodies were freezer paper stenciled on so that I could plan the spacing, that is the fabric paint part. Then I added the legs individually with a pigma pen.

and then some "wow I am in awe":
@ Noxika: Can you love a zombie? He is great. The eyes. the teeth, the bloody details. Crazy good!
@ TheBrokenButterfly: l Love that the hoop is so clear yet so simple at the same time.
@ pottermouth: amazing transfiguration project. so cute and the picture half cat half mouse just makes me smile so hard  Grin

There are so many great things, every one of them gets me thinking and planning. MUST. CRAFT.

lol. The shirt is not my style either. Spiders are creepy.  Tongue

However I am hoping the intended recipient (a teenage boy HP fan) likes it.  I guess I will know when he gets home from school.

Time for me to join in on the fun, and step out of crazy lurkerdom.  It is so much fun watching all the action on this thread. This will be just what I need to participate more actively here.

First thing I had to do was get sorted properly. I have taken many different "which house would you be in" tests all over the web and gotten a variety of options, so I signed up to Pottermore and played till I was sorted (ok I kept playing after too  Cheesy ). Add another Ravenclaw to the roster.

And for my first thing to add...
Challenge: Follow the spiders
House: Ravenclaw
