I really dig that white house by Jen Sews!

Here's a picture of the house I sent to hazelly - I'd love to see it assembled though!

Class: Potions
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Winter Inchie Houses
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=429489.0
Brief Description: These houses all had to be measured very carefully, because I couldn't fully assemble them before I sent them out. I had to be sure all the corners would line up so my partners wouldn't have to do any tweaking.

Challenge: Gravy bean
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Earl Grey Lemon Squares
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430131.0
Brief Description: I first made these with ChameleonHound, and they were so good that I made them again by myself, to take to Christmas dinner with my family.

Class: Defense Against the Dark Arts
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Framed card
Brief Description: I bought this beautiful art card at a local craft fair (from this shop), and I wanted some way to display it. I had an old frame rattling around, so I spruced it up with sample paint and sharpie! I didn't want anything that would distract too much from the card, and I think it shows off the art well.

Challenge: DA - Impediment Jinx
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pan handler oven mitt
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430221.0
Brief Description: This special oven mitt blocks the heat of the pan, so I can handle it with ease. Smiley

Here's the cute house I got from Jen Sews, covered in great nature stamps! Thank you again. Cheesy

Love that wee window.

I cut a little base out of the felt that she sent as padding!

That teensy wreath is made from the littlest paper scraps, it's amazing!

Also here's a picture of the house I sent to Jen Sews, so you can see the other two sides:

Here is my gorgeous house from seeuudee, unassembled:

I love the leaf tree in the back, the odd angled door, the shimmery roof tiles. I pretty much love everything about it!

Thank you again!  Kiss

Here is the Winter Inchie House that blupaisan made for our personal swap! I was so excited to put it together, that I didn't take a picture of it unassembled, but I tried to get pics of the inside anyway, because it's amazingly detailed!

OMG there's a cat hanging from the side window! And see the kitty in the snow cave at the back?

Her little tail is poking out the back of the cave!!

Inside there's a toasty fireplace, and a hanging plant in the center.

A tall shelf for books and curios,

and a coat hanging from the front door!

Thank you blu, it is so amazing.  Kiss

I love your triangle book BadWolf!

Class: Apparition
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Vintage lady pincushion
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430222.0
Brief Description: For my apparition work, I traveled to Hokkaido, the Northernmost main island of Japan. The base of this pincushion has a map of the area, which helped me concentrate on my desired location. The figurine on top was also made in Japan, a nice bit of symmetry (backstory in the main post).

Challenge: Cranberry Bean
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Insulated curtain
Brief Description: Cranberries are popular in the cold weather months of North America. This curtain helps me stay toasty, and is also cranberry red!

Class: Muggle Studies
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Spanakopita triangles
Project Page Link: http://egglandsbest.com/recipes/book/s/spanikopita.aspx
Brief Description: This muggle dish has Greek origins, and actually wasn't too complicated to make without magic, although I'm sure they would have been much prettier if I had. I'm taking them to a potluck tonight to see if people will be able to tell that they were made the muggle way!

Challenge: DA - Sign the Parchment
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Purple damask wallet
Brief Description: My go-to craft is sewing, and this was the first serious pattern I made for my etsy. Over a year later, I still enjoy making them!

267  Vintage lady pincushion in Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: December 21, 2013 10:16:54 AM

This project is really two pincushions reconstructed into one! The vintage lady topper was part of a pincushion that my grandmother had packed away for a long time, and her fabric skirt was falling apart and leaking sawdust. I wish I had taken a picture before I deconstructed it, but you can get the idea looking here.

The base is from a pincushion that my mom blupaisan made for me a few years ago. It was also past its prime (I had not been very gentle with it  Cry), with the top fabric coming unglued from the base. It was dear to me because she had decorated the base with a map including Sapporo, Japan, which was my first big trip away from home, and an experience I still treasure.

So to merge the two, I ironed some heavy interfacing onto a little section of my chosen fabric, cut a hole a bit smaller than the statue's base, and buttonhole stitched around it. I then installed the figurine, cut a circle of fabric around her, and stuffed it as much as I could, gathering the edges to form a little ball. I weighted the base with a handful of pennies, and glued the stuffed ball on using E600 glue.

I'm glad I was able to create something pretty and functional, while keeping intact the memories of the two original pincushions! (I also found 5 needles the I had lost over the years inside the stuffing of the second cushion, oops!  Shocked)

268  Pan handler oven mitt in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Acadian Driftwood on: December 21, 2013 09:50:46 AM

I made this so we wouldn't have to keep reaching for a large oven mitt or a dish towel when using our cast iron (also certain pots). It works quite nicely, and hangs on a little out-of-the-way hook right by the oven.

Its construction is very simple, just a layer of cotton, a layer of special heat-reflecting batting, and a layer of corduroy on the inside, bias tape around the edges.

I hand-sewed everything, because I have a terrible history with sewing bias tape in curves!

I really like how it turned out, and wanted to share! Cheesy

Class: Flying
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Disguised floo powder jar
Brief Description: Since I often have muggles visiting me, I thought it would be best if I kept my floo powder hidden in plain sight. So far I've only had one incident when a guest tried to put it in her tea!

House Pride: Hufflepuff pride!
House: Hufflepuff
Quidditch: Making a goal
Project Name: Wire star decorations
Brief Description: I made these yellow and black stars from telephone wire, and they currently hang on a pipe in my craftroom. They're pretty tiny. Smiley Go 'puffs!

Class: Herbology
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Patchwork ornaments
Brief Description: I had a lot of fun making these red and green holly-inspired patchwork ornaments! First, I gathered up red, white, and green strips of fabric and sewed them into large sheets. Then, I traced the circles onto the large patchwork, cut them out and sewed them to a plain muslin backing, turned them, and attached a ribbon hanger.
