Prompt: Battle Royale - Comic Convention
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points: Brain Power
Project Name: Chameleon Costume
Project Link:
Brief Description: My daughter decided to go as Rapunzel for Halloween this year (a staple at every Comic Con I've ever seen), so we decided to have little brother go as her faithful sidekick, Pascal! This meant making him a costume. I first covered an old zebra costume with green fleece, only to try it on him a week before Halloween and find out he had completely outgrown it in the month since I'd last tried it on him... Instead, we stuck him in green pants, a green long sleeve, and I made him a Chameleon hat (from the same pattern I made daughter's Piglet hat from last year), and a tail. I decided to just fly by the seat of my pants for the tail, and had no idea what I was doing. Once I'd cut and sewn the fabric, I knew I needed to do something to help it keep its curly shape. I've never used wire in this kind of capacity before, but when I came across an abandoned wire hanger on our walk one day, I knew it was fate. I bent and tweaked the wire until the tail was in shape, and then stuffed as much batting as I could in there with it, sewed up the end, and safety pinned it onto his pants.

Project Name: Green Tea Macarons with Honey Vanilla Buttercream
Project Link: Green Tea Macaron Ingredient Link: https://www.indulgewithmimi.com/matcha-strawberry-macarons-naturally-colored/
Macaron Directions Link: https://www.indulgewithmimi.com/the-best-macaron-recipe/
Honey Vanilla Buttercream Recipe: http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/desserts/honey-vanilla-buttercream-frosting/
Brief Description: I MADE MACARONS! Like, successfully! They have the little feet and everything! When I opened that oven and saw the perfect little feet on the bottom, I seriously felt like a superhero (and my husband totally made fun of me for dancing around the kitchen laughing and clapping like a little kid...). Macarons are notoriously finicky to make, and I am so proud of how these turned out. It took a lot of brain power and research to find a good recipe that had all of the info about each stage of the process and what things could go wrong at each step and how to minimize the chances of failure.

Project Name: Lightbox
Project Link:
Brief Description: As a part-time photographer, it always bugs me when I can't take really good photos of my crafts... So I decided to make a lightbox so that I could start to take better photos of some of my smaller stuff. Without light, this lightbox doesn't work.

Project Name: Lalotai Painting
Project Link:
Brief Description: One of my kids' favorite movies right now is Moana. My favorite characters are the Kakamora (the coconuts, aka the "murdering little pirates"). I made a joke to my husband one night that going into the kids' playroom was like entering Lalotai (the "realm of monsters"), so I made this Lalotai/Kakamora painting to hang above the playroom door. I started by sketching them out with pencil, and then painting the design with black acrylic paint. I thought about filling it all in with color, but honestly, I think it looks great in just the black and the little pop of color on the bottom.

Project Name: Felt Snowflake
Project Link:
Brief Description: Inspired by one of my daughter's favorite characters, Periwinkle (from the Tinkerbell franchise), and her light blue/white hair. Also, the design on the snowflake is made out of thread. This is one of the felt ornaments I made for my kids' advent calendar (a mix of felt ornaments and activities).

Prompt: October - Outfit
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points: Brain Power
Project Name: Pink Apron
Project Link:
Brief Description: One of my favorite characters is Molly Weasley from Harry Potter. She is a wonderful stay-at-home mom (my dream job, haha), who does everything for her kids. Many of Molly Weasley's scenes involve her cooking and bustling about in the kitchen, where I imagine her wearing a well-loved apron. My daughter requested a new apron for Christmas (a girly, pink one, to be specific!), and I made this for her! This was made entirely from stash. The pink panels were supposed to be one single piece, but I didn't have enough of any one fabric in pink (ugh, I'm SO not a pink girl!), so I had to cut and sew panels together before I even cut the pattern out. This was a new technique for me, and I was totally winging it. Same with the chevron patterned pieces - I didn't have enough to use all one fabric, so I used one for the top and a different one for the bottom, and again, sewing panels together before cutting the patterns. This was also my first time every sewing a pocket, but with a little kid, the apron's just got to have a cute little apron, in my opinion. Also my first time properly gathering, and first time pleating.

Project Name: Farnsworth ATC
Project Link:
Brief Description: Any fan of Warehouse 13 will remember this handy little device as how they communicate with each other. I made this ATC for the October Ongoing ATC Swap. I printed out pictures of all of the main characters from the show, and you can swap out the pictures so you can "talk" to your favorites! This is one of my favorite ATCs I've ever made.

Project Name: Pink Scrappy Dress
Project Link:
Brief Description: I made this pink scrappy dress for my niece for Christmas. It incorporates SO MANY PANELS in 6 different fabrics, plus interfacing and buttons. Halfway through making the dress, I realized just how much fabric this pattern calls for (OVER 5 YARDS FOR A CHILD'S SIZE 6!!). I decided to cut all of the skirt layers in half. I was super nervous that it wouldn't come out well/right, but it actually came out perfect! The dress is still fun and twirly, and I think she is going to just love it. Plus, because I only used half the called-for fabric, I will be able to make a second one later (possibly for my daughter's birthday?). This is the first time I have ever made button holes, and the first time I've ever used interfacing.

Prompt: November - Q&As
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Calm the Rage Monster
Project Link:
Brief Description: I never made anything with my essential oils without doing research first and making sure that the oils I'm using are exactly what I'm looking for, and that are safe for the use I have in mind. This particular lotion was made for my husband. We joke that he is the hulk, and turns into a rage monster when he's angry. I made him this lotion with essential oils that are specially picked for their calming, soothing, anti-anger properties. Now, when he feels that grumpiness start to take over, he goes to the bathroom and puts on a little rage monster lotion. I'm not 100% sure if it works because of the essential oils, if it is just a psychological trigger to help him calm down, or some combination of the two, but it seems to be working!

Prompt: November - Meets and Greets

Bonus Points:
Project Name: Blue Scrappy Dress
Project Link:
Brief Description: The same pattern as the pink scrappy dress, but in a smaller size. This one is for my other niece for Christmas. I intend to give them their dresses in person, once I have the purple one for my daughter completed as well, so they will all be getting matching dresses in their favorites colors together. I did the same thing as I did on the pink, where I cut all of the lower layers in half so the dress isn't as crazy full.

Project Name: Felt Polar Bear
Project Link:
Brief Description: Another of the ornaments for my kids' advent calendar. Partway through making the different ornaments, I realized I was completely out of white felt! AHH! So I had to go to the store and buy some more to finish the ornaments.

Prompt: November - Photo Ops
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Felt Sunburst Medallion/Belt Buckle
Project Link:
Brief Description: For Halloween, my daughter wanted to be Rapunzel, and we made my son Pascal. To keep with the theme, my husband and I decided to go with Disneybound versions of Flynn Rider/Eugene and Maximus the horse. (For those that don't know, Disney has strict rules about adults wearing costumes to their parks... i.e. NOT ALLOWED. Because of this, there is now a trend to wear street clothes that are inspired by your favorite characters without being actual costumes). To tie together my Maximus look, I decided to make a sunburst medallion to wear as a faux belt buckle on top of the awesome harness/rein-looking belt that I found. Maximus has a sunburst medallion on the front of his harness in the movie, so I felt like this was the perfect touch.

I have been holding off re-joining the Nerd Games, and instead focusing on the Harry Potter Craftalong, but Ive decided that Im going to rejoin! (cough... two days before the end... oh well, better late than never!) First Ill comment on a bunch of the projects yall have submitted already, and then Ill put together my submissions.

Queenhobo: Love the teeth on that shark blanket! That Harry Potter cross stitch made me giggle. The Harry Potter scarf blanket is SO COOL! Never would have thought to sew scarves together to make a blanket! I personally think making a baby TOTALLY qualifies for a project! (And congrats!!!)

Storerboughtcreations: The little jack-o-lantern pocket on your candy corn jacket is genius. That Tardis is so cool! It reminds me of a cookie jar. Omg super spud is so freaking cute! When we were little, we nicknamed our dogs Stinky Bean and Baby Bean and made comics about how they fought crime. What a cute little Batman and Superman duo! Loving the Pikachu and Togepi dolls! Omg the little dragon is SO CUTE!

Red headwiththread: Love the Pokemon bag and especially the fabric you chose! Ive been a fan of Pokemon since I was a little kid. Those Pikachu slippers are awesome! My kids would die if they saw them.

Nexika: Super cute Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy dolls. Omg Jack Bearington is so stinking cute! TOTALLY recognizable.

Mountains and Clouds: That glazed pot is so cool. Ive tried doing pottery before, and Im not great. The thrown and carved cups are awesome too. Ive never thought about cutting a journal apart and rebinding. So cool!

Rockingbearranch: Nice Halloween painted pallet! Love the Victorian haunted house that you made. Beautiful and creepy all at the same time.

Greybird: The cherry ATC you made is so cool, and I love the way you animated it to show the differences. The Be Awesome Again journal looks so beautiful!

Bunny1kenobi: Love the infiniti scarves! Those shades of green are so pretty! Love love love everything about the surprise you made for smileyyogini! And the key rack is perfect. One of my favorite quotes of all time! Was your Halloween shirt made with embroidery or fabric paint? Either way, its beautifully done! The puns on those kitchen towels are fantastic! Zippered pouches are still cute. I especially love the woodland creatures ones. The color combo on the gray, black, white, and yellow one is awesome too. More woodland creature zipper pouches I think I like these even more than the other ones! The blue and green color combo is one of my favorites. Love the steampunk jewelry! Ok, super cute Huggle This Muggle baby onesie!
Craftaddchick: Those zipper pouches are so cute! I love how you matched the zippers to the fabrics! Super cute little scissors cozy definitely one of the things on my to make list once Christmas is done. I always set them down when Im sewing and then cant find them again. So jealous of all your wonderful canned goods! I so wish we had a yard so I could grow/can our own stuff! That Happiness ATC is super cute. Love the tie-dyed onesies! My daughter had a tie-dyed onesie when she was little, followed by a couple of tie-dyed dresses (totally my parents style), and now any time she sees anything tie-dyed she goes Can we get it mama? So I can be just like Me-Ma? (Me-Ma is my mom). Adorable science-themed artwork for the walls of your class. Love the Adventure banner. Totally the type of thing I would hang up in my house. (Ok, seeing as how I love basically EVERYTHING you do, can we just live next to each other and craft together all the time?!)

Acadian Driftwood: That water goddess (Yemaya) dotee is just beautiful! I have a special love/connection to water and air goddesses. I also really love the maasai mother/baby. I practice baby-wearing with my littles, and they just love being cuddled/loved on all day. WOW! That vase is so beautiful! It reminds me of tulips. The owl tea wallet is beautiful. I totally need to add tea wallet to my list of projects I want to make (or swap for... hmm...). I love that you made that mug rug out of some old scrubs instead of tossing them. Brilliant. Ok seriously, all these zipper pouches are too cute! Love the hanging plant shelves! So cool! Those are some lovely wrapped star ornaments. Im especially fond of the teal and white ones. That sweet potato and pesto dish looks amazing!

Ezri_b: Love the black and white mismatch border on that Oogie Boogie pillow! Oh man, those needle minders are GENIUS! I love that you made them out of two magnets, so they stick to the project, too. My bad habit is sticking my needles in the arm of the couch... and then putting everything away except the needle... Hubby has almost sat/put his arm on them a couple of times. Luckily there have been no mishaps with the kids though.
Lovely_miss: Do you have a pattern you used for the notebook cover? Its genius, and I think I migt totally need one of my own! Those zipper pouches are still super cute. Love them every time I see them.

Calabaza: Super cute working dress. Perfect for teaching in (and who doesnt love a dress with pockets?!).

Smileyyogini: Super cute skull cover up. And I love your Wednesday Addams painting! I went as Wednesday Addams for Halloween a while back. Ooh, Ive never tried dying things before, but Ive always wanted to! Love the mermaid and the purple people eater colorways the best!

Edelc: Very cool tie-dyed and stamped fabrics! I love the mushroom printed fabric on that red bag! Omg, seriously loving all the stamped fabrics youve been doing! The golden snitch one is FANTASTIC!

Smeddley: OMG I absolutely love your Drawlloween ATCs!! I think my favorites are the Jackolope, the Sharks Hug, the Rawr monster, and the ants playing pinochle (mostly because my husbands family all play pinochle, and nobody else seems to know what that even means, haha). Oh, and the sewer croc! Tiny Yoda is so cute! The Kokeshi doll ATC is super cute, too. The Rapunzel scarf is adorable! I made a bunch of those in a bunch of colors a long time ago (before I got rid of 90% of my yarn). I think I only have one or two lying around now... While I am not a pink girl myself, I think the color combo is super cute. Those wrap bracelets are awesome! Love them! That snowman ATC is so adorable.

Ok... Caught up. Now on to smothering you guys with all the crafty stuff I've been up to!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - November
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Pink Scrappy Dress
Project Page Link (if available): https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m6497
Brief Description: So I found this adorable pattern for sale at Joanns, and thought that the little dress on the right would be just perfect for my daughter and my two nieces for Christmas. All three girls are total girly girls, and this is EXACTLY the style of dress they will love and want to wear every day, forever. And for $2? I had to say yes! I made the pink one for my oldest niece (5) first. After sewing the scrap parts together, I realized JUST HOW MUCH FABRIC this dress uses! It's over 5 yards per dress!!! So I was looking at this massive ring of fabric (with my arms completely outstretched, it still hung down in a big arc) and decided that I would cut each of the layers of the dress down to HALF the size, and hope to god it still came out well. Turns out half that size is absolutely perfect! The dresses are still super cute, super twirly, and I literally used half the amount of fabric (which means I can still make 3 more dresses!!). This was my very first time using any kind of interfacing, first time doing buttonholes, and first time doing a lining. I also decided not to line the other two dresses with the expensive fabric, and instead use muslin. This picture was taken before I added the belt (made of the same pink lace as on the bodice).

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo Powder - Mongolia
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Blue Scrappy Dress
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This is the blue scrappy dress I made for my other niece (3). I actually really really love this one! I'm not much of a pink girl, gimme all the blues and greens and purples, haha. Again, this photo was taken before I added on the blue lace belt. I love my little nieces so much. We try to see them once a week, and my kids (3.5 and 1.5) absolutely love playing with their cousins. Whenever we go over, the girls immediately take their play clothes off and go find twirly dresses to play dress up in (literally within 5 minutes of arriving, every single time, even if they were already wearing fun twirly dress to begin with  Roll Eyes).  These are the girls' birthday/Christmas presents this year, and I really hope they like them! You can see on this one I lined the bodice with muslin, and I used my same theory of using half the amount of fabric for all the skirt layers.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress Challenge November - Puking Pastilles #1
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Green Tea Macarons
Project Page Link (if available): link to ingredients for green tea macarons: https://www.indulgewithmimi.com/matcha-strawberry-macarons-naturally-colored/
link to directions on how to make macarons: https://www.indulgewithmimi.com/the-best-macaron-recipe/
Brief Description: Ok, so I attempted to make macarons once before in my life, and they turned out HORRIBLE. This was before I had an electric hand mixer and was attempting to make them by hand (10/10 do NOT recommend). I decided to test out making them again, in preparation for the holidays. These ones came out SO GOOD! Look! They have little feet and everything!! Yes, they're a little grainy/bumpy looking, and they have little "nipples" on top. I blame this on the fact that I did not sift the flour mix at the beginning. But they tasted so good and I'm so proud! I followed this recipe up by making itty bitty chocolate ones with chocolate ganache (first time making ganache) for Thanksgiving, but I forgot to take pictures!  Cry However, they didn't have feet and the tops were a little wrinkly/broken-looking (problem: didn't let them sit long enough before popping them in the oven... I got impatient). But they tasted SO GOOD. I'm just mad I didn't get any pictures because they were so cute and tiny! Anyway, here are the green tea ones. I'll talk about the filling down below.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress Challenge November - Puking Pastilles #2
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Pink Slime
Project Page Link (if available): https://preschoolinspirations.com/make-slime/
Brief Description: I had tried to make slime for the kids in the past, and it came out just an awful sticky mess, and they couldn't even play with it. When I followed these directions, it came out PERFECTLY. The kids love it, and ask to play with it all the time. I think I cut this recipe in half, and used like 24 drops of red to create this pink color. Just so you know, I don't recommend making pink your first time. As you are squishing it around to get it to congeal properly, there is a phase where it really starts to look and feel kind of like... innards... and... yea, it was gross there for a minute or two, guys. I almost threw it away just based on that (I'm a vegetarian, btw). But yea, kids totally loved it - not too sticky, not too runny. When you first pull it out of the fridge, it's more sticky and less runny, but as you work it with your hands, the stickiness goes away and it gets all blobby and melty. Pretty cool consistency.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Iron Chef Hogwarts November - Honey
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Honey Vanilla Buttercream Filling
Project Page Link (if available): http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/desserts/honey-vanilla-buttercream-frosting/
Brief Description: This is the recipe for the honey vanilla buttercream frosting I used in the green tea macarons. It actually held up really well (I put a couple in the fridge and a couple on the counter overnight to see if the buttercream would get too melty and ooze out, and it didn't). This frosting was so good, and was the perfect amount of sweetness to cut the slight bitterness of the matcha in the green tea macarons.

What a cool idea for a class! How about felt ornaments? I've been making a ton lately, and I can scan and send you the patterns I made. Felt, DMC floss, a needle, a pen (I use a thing sharpie) or tape to hold pattern down, and scissors are the only things necessary.

Those scrap blocks are brilliant! I have the awful habit of saving every single little bitty scrap of fabric from all my projects in a big box, and need to find something to do with them. How did you make those AIMR?
18  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: HAPPY MAIL #3 - BRING the HAPPY GALLERY on: November 16, 2017 03:37:01 PM
The natural dyes sound fascinating! Do you use fresh hibiscus or dried?

I never thought to use tracing paper to make stamps! I always just sketch lightly right onto my pink stuff with pencil. And yes, that means I have carved stamps only to realize the words were backwards >_< Thanks for the tip irid3sc3nt!
19  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: HAPPY MAIL #3 - BRING the HAPPY GALLERY on: November 14, 2017 05:41:44 PM
Yay! I got the photos sorted out!!

Here is the AWESOME package I got from irid3sc3nt!

It was wrapped with this really cool dessert paper, which unfortunately I had to kind of destroy to get it open Sad but it was totally worth it!


Here's a shot of the whole package of goodies together:


She made me 12 envelopes in the same cool dessert paper as the wrapping. I can't wait to rejoin the ATC swap after the holidays so I can use these!


9 of the cutest inchies I've ever seen, in my favorite color scheme!


She included an assortment of confetti/ephemera and some inchie blanks in the same colorway of the ones she made:


A Disney-themed chunky house (which, along with the inchie house, are totally going on a special shelf/altar in my kids' playroom!).


Here is the rubber ducky themed inchie house! I have never gotten an inchie house or a chunky house before, and they are so cool! I didn't even know what a chunky house WAS before this!


See the rubber ducky face on the inchie house? She made that stamp, and SENT IT TO ME! Along with a couple of rubber ducks (which my 1-year-old immediately commandeered!).


A Winter Whomping Willow ATC, which I just LOVE! I never would have thought to do something like this, and I love the glittery snow bits on it!


She also sent two of the tiniest, coolest extras I've ever seen - a bitty little watercolor and colored pencil set for on the go! How cool are they?! I included a picture of one of the inchies so you could see just how small they are. And seriously - look at how cute/tiny that little octopus is on the inchie!!! Is he made out of a hole punch? And if so, where did you get it? Because he is seriously just too cute!!


And last but certainly not least, the coolest thing EVER! She made me a geocaching container out of a rubber duck! Seriously, how did you do that? It is so cool! Now we need to find a good place/way to hide it, because it is so cool, it needs to be shared with the rest of the geocaching community!


Thank you so much! You spoiled me, and sent me things from ALL of my different themes, which is just so cool! Thank you!!

I'm definitely sitting this month out Sad and possibly next month too. I am slammed with all of the Christmas crafting I want to get done (ideally on time), so I need to put my head down and work like crazy. I already finished an apron, a scrappy dress, and 3 days worth of advent calendar ornaments for the kids, but I still have the other 21 advent calendar days, 2 scrappy dresses, 2 robes, a crochet hat, a set of felt creatures, a corkboard to decorate/cover, and a banner to make. And it's quite possible I'm forgetting something... I don't know if there are even enough hours/days left if all I did was Christmas crafting, but by golly I'm gunna try!
