Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Picnic Dress
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: Looking through my doll clothes box you will mostly find shades of blue.  The mustard bean was a good challenge to move beyond this particular part of the spectrum.  I made this with a poly-blend scrap from my great-aunt's scrap bin, and my sewing machine hated it.  It tried to eat one of the skirts (I nearly lost it down the feed dogs) and severely mangled another.  Third time's the charm, though!

Flying Classroom


173 Bee in your bonnet by Trillian, on Flickr

Consider the Bee!  Throughout history bees have symbolized industry and community.  They have a beneficial relationship with humans, pollinating orchards and producing honey and beeswax.  While not of the honey producing variety, bumblebees are worthy creatures, with a large, fuzzy body, and loud buzz.  Our own Albus Dumbledore takes his family name from an archaic name for these noble creatures.  In the 20th century a misconception spread throughout the muggle community that physics was unable to explain how bumblebees managed to fly.  A more thorough understanding of aerodynamics proved that the flight of the bumblebee has nothing to do with magic, but the myth persists.  This semester, please produce a craft inspired by bumblebees and bees in general.

Dulcet - Those skirts are amazing!  They should go like hot-cakes at your yard sale.  I wish I could fit them - I was just looking in my closet bemoaning the lack of summer skirts.

Kookaloo-Star - Those jeans are really nifty!  They look comfy too.

Speaking of jeans...

I found a stash of old jeans in my Dad's basement, some of which I remember wearing in middle school.  Why did I keep these?  I have no idea.  Some still fit, but the knees have gone, so they've gone into the recycling pile.  My first attempt to use up some of the fabric had mixed results, but I've got plenty more for a second (or third) try.

Still haven't quite used up my cupcake fabric, but I'm not sure I have enough left for another pillowcase cuff.

And a doll sweater, like you do...

Moonflame - Wow, she got home fast!  Love all the things you're making her.  It's addictive, no?

And in a similar vein, popping by with my Olive bean submission before diving into my stash in search of something bright...

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Olive
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Unexpected Mom Jeans
Project Page Link: Unfortunately the tutorial is on a members-only forum
Brief Description:  I have two dolls that share one body (that makes a lot more sense if you're in the hobby but is kind of creepy otherwise).  They have very different personalities and tastes in clothes, but one thing they can agree on is that jeans go with everything.  They also agree that I don't make very stylish examples of said jeans.  I'll be giving it another shot before admitting defeat.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
SPEW: ConKerr
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Practice Pillowcase
Project Page Link: see above
Brief Description:  Pillowcases hold pillows.  In a pinch, they can also double as laundry bags, and make great "running away from home" sacks.  They are also great practice when you're trying out a new sewing machine! *happy dance*

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Care of Magical Creatures
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Seven Dwarves Sweater
Project Page Link: All Knit Sweater
Brief Description: The colors in this yarn reminded me of the shady parts of a garden where garden gnomes are wont to make their home.  The colorway is called "Seven Dwarves" and since muggles like to dress garden gnome statues as if they were Disney dwarves it seemed appropriate.

Kookaloo Star - I'll be interested to see how those jeans turn out.  Looks neat!

dulcet - I'm going to add my voice in praise of those skirts.  They're super cute, and I'm sure you'll find plenty of people willing to take them off your hands.

cmouse01 - I love the flowers on the purple hat.  So sweet!

Popping by with two last April projects.

And the first project from the box of fabric my great-aunt gave me

Baby Blue by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

I had left about half of the fabric my great-aunt gave me at my mother's house until I could figure out how to integrate it into my own stash.  When I last spoke to mum it appears she accidentally gave it away.  She feels really bad about it, but I'm not all that fussed.  It went to a good home, and except for two pieces (a neat orange plaid, and a vintage winnie the pooh sheet) I don't even miss it.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Mushroom
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Curtains for Me
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: Living in a rental meant I needed a way to add color to my walls other than using paint.  I whipped up a really quick curtain for behind my bed.  It's only two seams, so most of my time was spent ironing, pinning, and wrestling about 7 yards of material.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - March WIP
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: The Grand Sewing Experiment
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I have slowly, over the course of the last few months, been experimenting to see how many doll dresses I can get out of one fat quarter.  After finishing up three more this week I have my answer: 6.  One didn't make it into the picture (I ran out of dolls) and half have been submitted for other challenges, but the front row in this pic are my March Detention Dresses.
