32  OWLS in Craftalongs by Abbeeroad on: May 16, 2017 01:38:15 PM
NOTE: Once you propose, please go forth on your Advanced Studies projects.  Your Examiners will PM if they have any inquiries.

~Everything O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s~
---Ordinary Wizarding Levels, OWLs, and Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests, NEWTs, are advanced crafting projects.  OWLs and NEWTs are supposed to be more complex and challenging projects.
---OWLs and NEWTs are more time-consuming than HPC classes and challenges.  There is no hard and fast rule on how many hours a project should take, because speed and difficulty levels are too subjective.  What we are really looking for is a project that will be a personal challenge to you.
---OWLs should take 3-4 weeks to complete.
---NEWTs should take more than a month to complete. (Please see post below for more on NEWTs.)
---Projects that do not take the allotted time of crafting will not be counted as complete; keep that in mind when you post your completed OWLs and NEWTs.  If you finish your OWL or NEWT earlier than expected, then craft an additional item(s) that correspond with your subject.  Add notes on how you finished earlier than expected and details about your additional crafting in your Completed Project post.
---You must propose your OWL or NEWT before starting so that we may be your cheerleaders and help encourage you during this more challenging craft adventure.
---You may only do 1 OWL & 1 NEWT at one time.  (Dont want you to be stuck with a ton of OWL & NEWT WIPs!)
---You may propose an OWL or NEWT any time during the semester.
---OWLs and NEWTs can carry over to the next semester.
---If you decide to abandon an OWL or NEWT project, notify your OWL Examiners, and they will erase that log from their records.  Once you have submitted to have an OWL or NEWT erased, you can propose a new one.

~*HOW TO COMPLETE AN OWL*~
1. Select which OWL you would like to complete.  You may only do one OWL at a time so select carefully.
2. Propose what you plan on doing for your OWL project.  You may do this by PM to your OWL Examiners or by posting in the HPC thread.  When making an OWL Proposal, please use the header below, and make sure you give details such as methods using, materials using, plan of action, timeline.  These details will help us cheer you on and inspire future OWLs.
3. Begin work on your OWL project.  Feel free to add progress pics in the HPC thread.
4. Once your project is complete, post a picture of your project in the HPC; make sure to use the OWL Header provided below.  Once you post a completed OWL, your OWL Examiner will notify the Headmistress, and you will earn your OWL Badge for that subject.
GOOD LUCK!!

I definitely want to offer something...just have to think on what I can feasibly do within a reasonable amount of time!

I have a couple overdue projects to turn in! Hopefully more coming soon!

Class: Astronomy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: TM Patch
Project Page Link: Inspired by schnerby's Propoganda Stencil Work
Brief Description: Made for craftylittlemonkey in the TM Patch Swap, this patch features three colors: black, white, and rust red/orange. I used a mixture of freezer paper stencil and embroidery to create the image.

Project Name: Felt Twinchies

Brief Description: It is my belief that everything is cuter with a face and when rendered in felt. Tongue I made these little squares for the felt twinchie swap. They were really fun.

I received this set of nature twinchies from Smmarrt!

I love how different they are from my first set but still in the same genre. The bird is adorable and I just adore the flower! The leaf is a little puffy which adds a cool dimension!



Thank you Smmarrt!!

Ugh. Phone photos never work. Will re-upload pic from my comp when I can!

The Iron Chef Hogwarts Challenge for April is now CLOSED. Thank you Audania1 for your Pineapple Iron Chef Entry! If I missed anyone, please let me know!

The secret ingredient for May is...


Chickpeas!

Got a picnic coming up? How about a nice chickpea salad? Still feeling the chill? How about a chickpea vegetable soup? Got a sweet tooth? Try out these chocolate chip chickpea blondies!

Friendly Reminder: Be sure to add the header Iron Chef Hogwarts: SECRET INGREDIENT (e.g. MUSHROOM) to your entry. And double up with existing classes/challenges to claim house points (Iron Chef Hogwarts entries that do not fit a class/challenge prompt will not count for house points)

I received from quaggy yesterday but I had trouble posting a photo...let's see how this goes! They are the most adorable little felt squares I've ever seen!



She went with my love of nature, flowers, trees, and mountains. They are so perfectly stitched with so many awesome tiny details.

Thank you so much, quaggy! I love them!!

My Cards!



Backgrounds were made first with a mixture of geli print, bubble wrap, random rolling of paint, and stamps on cardstock. I loved how some of them came out. Then I took scraps of my dyed fabric and sewed both the fabric and my pic (me at Massena [WAY upstate NY] beach...probably 5-7 ish...not sure, lol) to the center. The whole thing got a coat of mod podge for protection and to flatten out the fabric a bit. A strip of washi tape with my name sparkled on and they were done! Oh yeah, I glued the back to them, but forgot to take a pic! I signed them on the back and noted which # card was which. Super fun! Smiley

39  Teesha Moore Patch Journal Cover in Needlework: Completed Projects by Abbeeroad on: April 05, 2017 01:07:55 PM
I made this journal cover for LadybugsandBumblebees in the most recent Geezer Swap.



I think I underestimated how long one of these babies would take. I felt like I copped out a bit by making the back one big patch, but I just ran out of time to make the front all over again. I tried to make up for it by "TM patching" the leaves on the tree.

Here's the cover:



Some close-ups of the stumpwork bugs:





I used Sew in Love's tutorial for the ladybug and referred to her site often for the dragonfly, too.

The binding edge:



And the back cover:



I completely cheated and used the zig zag stitch on my machine to connect my patches, but I ended up really liking the effect. It helped "flatten" out the whole thing and made it seem more cohesive. I also used a piece of fabric to line the back side of the cover and used elastic on a diagonal sewn to the corners to attach my cover to the journal.

It was a lot of fun to make! Thanks for looking. Smiley

Project Name: TM Patch Notebook Cover
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452064.0
Brief Description: This notebook cover is definitely a "hodgepodge" of different themes. Made for LadybugsandBumblebees in the recent Geezer Swap, each TM patch represents one of LBBB's likes. This project is pretty much the reason why my posts have been absent for March - it took over my life! Haha. It was super fun to make!

Project Name: Unicorn Poop Cookies
Project Page Link: https://snapguide.com/guides/make-rainbow-unicorn-poop/
Brief Description: What could possibly be more nonsensical than unicorn poop cookies?? They were fun to make and looked cool, but kind of tasted like play dough. I think we'll try a different recipe if we make these again.
