@cmarion3 Those monsters are adorable.  Also you're cat is actually using something you made!  That's amazing! 



I'm feeling brave enough to start Kon-Mari-ing my craft supplies.  I will report back later and let you know what happens.

February Themes


Knöpfe / Buttons by Marco Verch, on Flickr

Color:  pink
Pattern: swirls
For: organizing
Challenge 1:  Now that you've located and looked at your stash, you might be ready to get it in some kind of order.  Untangle your yarn, sort your seed beads, and generally make sure you can find things in your stash easily so that you can use them.  If that's too daunting, you could just clear off your crafting surface so you're ready for your next project.  Whatever makes the most sense for you.  We'd love to see pictures if you're feeling brave enough!
Challenge 2: Finish the oldest UFO (unfinished object) you can still find.

I love it all but especially the envelopes!  How did you make them?

It was fairly simple with the help of my quilting ruler
-Determine the size you want your finished envelope to be and draw it in the center of your piece of paper.
-Create side flaps that are half the size of short end of your finished rectangle, plus 1/2 an inch for overlap.  Make a slight angled cut between the corner of your first rectangle and the outer edge of the flaps for easier folding.
-Create a short bottom flap that is long enough to completely cover the angles on the side-flaps, plus an extra margin for glue.  Angle the edges same as above.
-Trace a bowl or plate to be the top flap.

I'll be working on a slightly larger size soon if you'd like me to do a step-by-step tutorial.

You end up with something like this:


Envelope Pattern by Trillian, on Flickr

I had a fairly disastrous crafting evening (measure three times, cut once, and still get things wrong), but I did manage to get something ready for the Floo.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo Powder - Bermuda Triangle
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Realfee Daisy Dress
Brief Description: While not the busiest fabric I have in my stash, at this scale the pattern is definitely not restful on the eyes.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - January
House: Hufflepuff

243 Pretty in Pink by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology

That's it for now!  I may be back with more later tonight depending on how productive I am this evening.

286 Christmas Hexies by Trillian, on Flickr

306 Snowflakes Sundress by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
SPEW: Hillcrest Church's Women's Association
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Winter Lapghan
Brief Description: I needed a quick yarn project after my disastrous so I whipped up a quick lapghan for my grandmother's church to take to local nursing homes.  Perfect for times when you're stuck inside in front of the TV (both the process and the finished product).

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress' Challenge January
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pukifee Roses Dress
Brief Description: At least half my stash comes from fabric collected by aging relatives who are coming to the realization that their own hoard exceeds anything they'll be able to craft with in their own lifetime or given to me as others are clearing out their loved ones' houses.  This is the last gasp of one such Fat Quarter.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Study of Ancient Runes
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pukifee Scrappy Dress

@MistressT - I really like your shelves! Getting things in odd shaped spaces like that can take a while but it looks like you're off to a great start.  Can't wait to see the finished results.

Allow me to expound for a moment in the wonders of having a ... robust... stash.  It means that when you get a crazy notion at 10pm to sew a silly outfit for a doll you can have all the materials at hand without having to head out to the shops (which are closed anyway).  I also rather like how it can force you into combinations you might not have chosen with an entire craft store at your disposal.  This project was something of a wild ride from start to finish.


013/365 Happy Birthday Tamsin by Trillian, on Flickr

Still plugging away at my craft mess room.  I hope to be able to start making real changes to the organization and layout instead of just finding the floor by the end of the month.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: November Subscription Dresses
Brief Description: I made seven of these dresses in various sizes.  Making so many all in one fabric and in one sitting is not my usual modus operandi and not the most exciting thing I've ever done with my life, even if the results were great.



Hello Harper by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: DADA
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Tamsin's Birthday Suit
Project Page: Made using this pattern.
Brief Description: Most of the time gingham looks the same from either side of the fabric, but this time there was something a little funny about one side giving it a sort of ridge texture.  I had to rely on the feeling of the fabric to determine if I was putting right sides together when sewing.


013/365 Happy Birthday Tamsin by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Groovy Dress
Brief Description: The print of this fabric sort of reminds me of a psychedelic interpretation of waves or the rolling fronts of thunderstorms moving in when I lived in the midwest.  With maybe a little more pink than usually found in nature.


015/365 Feelin' Groovy! by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Sad Socks
Project Page: Made using this pattern (more or less)
Brief Description: Socks!  You put them on your feet!  Sometimes they even fit, just not this time. Sad

Can't wait to see what you make with that bias tape.  There's a lot of fun colors and patterns going on there.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo Powder - Ghana
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Gold Gold Gold Gold Gold Gold Gold
Brief Description: I needed something shiny to start out the new year and ended up with a teeny tiny little dress with gold dots and sash.  I tried lining the bodice with tulle instead of muslin to reduce bulk.  It worked well in that regards, but makes the whole thing a little bit more delicate. 



Class/Challenge/House Pride: House Pride
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Hufflesweater
Project Page Link (if available): Made with this pattern.
Brief Description: When I found out my neighbor's granddaughter was a fellow Hufflepuff, I knew her doll needed a good sweater to go along with his wardrobe.
