I updated my OWL submission to include the Parseltongues Unite Slytherin Scavenger Hunt challenge.  Forgot to do that when I originally posted...

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Grape Jelly
SLytherin Scavenger Hunt: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Ric-Rac Dress
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: My mother had a thing for dressing me in this color combo when I was little.  I swear at least half my outfits (and my room and half my toys) were green and yellow.  My grandmother made some lovely smocked dresses to fit the theme, but my dolls will have to make do with ric-rac.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch - Catching the Snitch
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Potion Perfect
House: PuffleHuff
Project Name: Gingham Galore
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I make dresses for tiny dolls.  The smallest dolls I can sew for are about 6 inches tall, and their dresses are all less than 4 inches in any direction (even when twirled out).  I thought adding the ric-rac to the hem was going to be more complicated, but it was actually pretty easy.  I'll probably be using a lot more of it from here on out.


Can't Stop Sewing by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch - Dark Mark
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Finders Keepers
House: Huff-le-puff
Project Name: Scrappy Sundress
Project Page Link: Made using this bodice pattern.
Brief Description: I love sewing for this particular doll.  I found the scrap of fabric I used for the bodice crammed into the very bottom of a box from my aunt.  It wasn't big enough for anything more than this.  The skirt fabric came from some weird sort of sheets floor sample boards my grandfather dragged home from the thrift store (for reasons I have yet to figure out...). 


Sun Dress Time by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch - Time Out
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Welcome Home Dress
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: Most of my recent sewing for this size has gone to stock my etsy shop.  But I had a new-to-me doll arrive this week and decided she needed a brand-new dress to welcome her.  I've been saving this fabric scrap forever because I knew it would be perfect for this size of dress.  This one's going to stay in our own wardrobe for good.

***Completed OWL***
OWL Subject & Option: Astronomy, Option 3
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Parseltongues Unite (for snakey cables)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Zig-Zagular Socks
Project Page Link: ZigZagular Socks by Prairie Girl Knits
Brief Description: At first glance this looks like a pretty boring sock - just lots of stockinette, but on closer observation you can see that there's a really small twisted stitch pattern going up the side of each sock, and the kettle dyed nature of the yarn gives the blue extra depth (there's even some purple in there if you look closely).  I had to write out the chart row number for each round I completed, which means that for the first time ever both socks are exactly the same size.  A nice, relaxing, slow project.


Well Heeled by Trillian, on Flickr

And I have more advanced studies proposals - both an OWL and a NEWT, since we're allowed to have one of each running simultaneously.



***NEWT PROPOSAL***
Subject: Potions
House: HufflePuff
Project Name: Hitofude Cardigan
Brief Description: With this NEWT I will demonstrate my ability to follow a recipe (...or pattern, in this case) and patience making this cardigan.  While the other ladies in my knitting group say it's a relatively quick and easy knit ("only five weeks!" they say...) it will be my first sweater, so I'm rather nervous.  I probably won't finish this until well into the Fall Semester, but I can't wait to get started.



***OWL PROPOSAL***
OWL Subject & Option: Charms.
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Magic Socks
Brief Description: While the Hitofude Cardigan is going to be a lot of fun to work on, with its lacy pattern I don't think it will be a good candidate for on-the-go knitting.  This means I will need something simpler for my long-boring-meeting knitting and my chat-with-friends-while-knitting.  I will be mastering the Confundus charm by knitting a pair of magic-loop two at a time socks.  I've tried them before and was completely befuddled, but this time I will win!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt Enemies Beware
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Bow!
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I launched an etsy shop for my doll dresses last week (I've been making more than my dolls could ever hope to wear all by themselves) and wanted to include a little "thank-you" gift with my first sale.  Inspired by swans' elegance and white color I made a hairbow.  It took a few false starts and then a lot of hunting to find the right size clips.  The best part was singing the edges of the ribbon so they don't fray.  Any craft that involves flame is a good craft!



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch - Prep the Pitch
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt Wingardium Leviosa
SPEW: conkerr
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Bird Pillowcases
Project Page Link: see above link for pattern
Brief Description: Pillowcases hold pillows primarily but can be pressed into service as laundry bags or running away sacks.  This particular one has birds on it, which have hollow bones to keep their weight down for flight.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt Snape Says
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Bitty Bunny
Project Page Link: Teeny Tiny Knitted Toys by Cotton Rabbits
Brief Description: Bunny Bunny Bunny!  This little dude is only a couple inches tall.

Good Luck, Mistress Jennie!

Slipping in with some projects of my own...

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Ketchup
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt Pygmy Puffs
SPEW: WIP for my grandmother's church's perpetual lapghan drive
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Slow Beginnings
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I've been re-organizing my yarn stash and found a bunch of bits and bobs of rather fuzzy acrylic, so I decided to start in on another granny-square lapghan for my grandmother's church.  They take them to shut-ins in the congregation and donate them to local nursing homes.  The white center bit was already done, but an episode and a half of White Collar later I'd gotten two more tiny balls of yarn used up.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention in the Dungeon
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Dueling Wizards
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Fireworks Dress
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: Inspired by red flames, I made some sort of infinity dress for my larger dolls.  I had to re-do the waistband twice, and tying it is like wrestling spaghetti, but I'm pleased with it for a first attempt.

We've snared another one! *cackles evily in a corner*

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
Scavenger Hunt: Not Our Color - Gryffindor Red & Gold
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Fat Quarter Project Bag
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: It's been a while since I made one of these bags.  They're kind of awesome because they take up an entire FQ with nothing left over (important when you're DeStashing), they are relatively quick to make (about an hour), and they can be used for just about anything.  This one is made for my mother.  The colors of the flowers remind me of flames.


176 Fat Quarter Project Bag by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Beans - Curry
Scavenger Hunt: Vanishing Cabinet - Fat Quarter into tote
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Fat Quarter Project Bag
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: Most of my fabric comes from older friends & relations, with an occasional splurge with a coupon at Joanns.  This Fat Quarter came from an honest-to-goodness quilt shop.  The sort of places I browse longingly but rarely buy anything from.  I was saving it for something special, but then decided I wanted something simple to show off the awesome print.


Another Project Bag by Trillian, on Flickr

The final picture isn't a submission for points, just for the scavenger hunt Time Turner prompt.  It didn't take very long, and I can't figure out a category to put it under anyway.  I went back to a jumper I made last year and lengthened the straps and moved the snap so it would fit a friend's doll.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Defense Against Dark Arts
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Blue Again
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: While doll dresses and the color blue definitely aren't breaking any new ground for me, I decided to see what a large print fabric would look like for a change.  The usual rule of thumb for doll clothes is the fabric motif shouldn't be larger than the doll's hand, but I really like the way this turned out.  Modeled by my friend's doll, so it looks shorter than usual.  She's a leggy girl.


Lovely Lily by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Library Challenge - Celebration
SPEW: n/a
House: Hooflepoof
Project Name: Rose Dresses
Project Page Link: Rings of Change by Jane Fancher
Brief Description: Three rose printed party dresses inspired by the Rings of Change series by Jane Fancher.  I like this series because although it's fantasy it doesn't have a medieval, steampunk, urban or other overdone setting.  The inhabitants of the world treat magic as if it were a public utility, and where the "ley" works, only roses will grow.  The story is about three brothers and opens with a rather dysfunctional birthday celebration.


Mischa really likes the bunny hat. by Trillian, on Flickr

(On a strange side-note, as I was looking for the author's website so I wouldn't have to link to amazon for a summary, I discovered that she's also in the doll hobby and I'd been running across her pictures/dolls for years.  Small world!)

stacirose - That cake is so cool!  Hope it was as tasty as it was picturesque.

elliot-anne - Amazing progress so far!  I would never have the patience for that sort of project.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch: PreSeason Studies
SPEW: n/a
House: Pufflehuff
Project Name: Library Badges
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: noodle-bug let me make the badges for the Library challenges, which tickled me pink since I'm a book-miner by trade.  The graphics for these badges were drawn from Victorian publications and circus Quidditch posters.  You can see the first badge at the link below, but there are two more to follow in the coming months.

Bushbaby - You are forgiven and that yarn looks good enough to eat.  Hope you have fun using it up!

Kookaloo Starr - Love all the cheerful colors in that afghan.  I'm sure the baby will love it!

And in general, I am highly amused by the stash migration going on in this thread.

It's been a while since I posted, so forgive the project dump.

In no particular order with no real explanation...

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pink Squares
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: When you're fabric has geometric patterns its pretty easy to see where you've made a mistake.  I had to put more effort into centering the bodice design making sure the hem was straight, and that the bodice and skirt met at a consistent point on the repeat all the way around the dress (although the gathers make it hard to see).

Shout out for Ticket to Ride!  (And also for cooperative games - love me some Pandemic)

Moonflame - I love your corsets!!!  I've been meaning to try the paper towel and painters tape patterning method, and your lovely stuff might be the kick in the pants I need to give it a try.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Earthworm
SPEW: Nope
House: Hooflepoof
Project Name: Sunset Dress
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I think this might have been the brightest fabric scrap in my stash.  Plus the organic stripes of the batik kind of remind me of the rings around earthworms...
