Sorry, forgot to add one more to the class set.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
SPEW:n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project: Ruffle Skirt with a built in slip
I had fun making this skirt, with some yellow flower-like the broom plant.  It has a built in skirt which is helpful with the light colored fabric.

~*COMPLETED OWL HEADER*~
OWL Subject & Option:History of Magic  Option 3-Craft something using a vintage pattern, material, or technique.
originally proposed Feb. 1 2017
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pioneer Dress
Brief Description:  I  recreated a pioneer dress for use at a Rendezvous.  I utilized a zipper instead of buttons, but in many other ways (cotton cloth, time period fitting print, ,etc) it is vintage styling.  I would like to find a shawl to use with it.  My sister made me an amazing period hat to go with it.

House: Hufflepuff
Project: Chair Cover
I recently bought a new table and chairs.  The chairs are a vinyl type that my cats love to use as a scratching post.  So, I need to create chair seat covers.  I made a pattern and then crafted my test cover.  It is a little off in a couple of spots but will be easy to fix for the final covers.  I added bow tie closures that incorporate a knot to help keep the covers on.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch :#3 Vratsa Vulture
SPEW:n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project:  I have not made badges before.  I have had a little tool to make them for 3 years.  I decided it was time to open it and try it out.  I was not impressed with the tool, I ended up having to take pliers around the edges to seal the front to the back.  Worse though-was the actual picture area.  I tried using paper glaze to give it a glass like finish.  I have previosly used it on printed photos and it worked well.  With my normal printer images though-it was a fail.  The colors bled and one has bad glaze bubbling.  All Well, I think I will try gain with photo paper.

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: House Cup
I am a fifth grade teacher.  This year our grade level is having a Hogwarts style competition.  Classes will be given a house name and we will have competitions throughout the year to earn house points.  At the end of every month whichever class has the most house points will be awarded the House Cup.  

I bought a plastic cup and large plastic bowl at the Dollar Store.  Spray painted them with gold paint.  Next, I screwed them together.  Then I added Cabinet handles.

Challenge: anniversary 2014 sign the parchment
SPEW: Yes for the Huntsman Cancer Center
House: Hufflepuff
Project: Neck pillow

I have been so busy this year that I have hardly anytime to craft.  I love sewing but have had a hard time committing to anything big.  I decided to sew this neck pillow, an easy familiar project.  It was the perfect break today.  It is going to a cancer hosptial for a patient to use during chemo.



Challenge: 2015-Celebrate Library Challenge
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project: Luggage Tags

I am celebrating summer break by going on vacation!  I made a couple of luggage tags for it.  They have pockets where personal information can be secure with tags that are laminated and snap in.
My book recommendation is a book I am working on currently.  It is a youth age book (grade 4-6).  It has lots of fun adventure.

technicoloraquahearts that is a serious amount of art!  I love all the different mediums you incorporated.  Gorgeous work!!

Tiamatfire-great wreath.  The main leaf reminds me of a tangram.  The dress is very pretty, the little lady wearing it is adorable.  The flip flops are fun!

Mistress Jennie-Great T-shirt.  I especially love the p.j.s.

My camera is not working so I had to try and take these pictures with my macbook.  So, they are not the best pictures but it will give you an idea of what the projects look like.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:  Charms
SPEW:n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Cat Toy
In the spirit of lively and fun charm classes I crafted a stuffed egg shaped ball for my cat.  I let them sit in catnip for a few days and then pull it out for kitty to play with.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Potions
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Weighted Blanket
Making a weighted blanket for a cousin has long been on my to do list.  It took me a long time to get around to it because I had to hunt down a place to buy the plastic pellets online.  I ended up going with Ebay.  I was also a little intimidated by it, but it turned out well.  I had to drape it on a pillow to fit it on my mac screen for a picture. In real life it lays flat and is not all bunched up and strange looking.

Project Name: Crochet Washcloths
A couple of years ago I tried to learn to crochet.  It did not work out.  I recently decided to give it another try.  My first project was a couple of lopsided washcloths.  They gave me a better feel for crocheting and their wonkiness has their own charm Wink



Class/Challenge/House Pride:  Transfiguration
SPEW: Primary Children's Hospital
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name:  I created a couple soft like rabbit fur, flannel blankets for a children's hospital.

Project Name: Humpback Chub Watercolor
Project Page Link :  http://www.coloradoriverrecovery.org/general-information/the-fish/humpback-chub.html

I believe that we should be aware of our surroundings and treat all life with consideration.  I like to go fishing from time to time and came across an endangered fish that I thought would be an interesting art subject.  I read about and learned about the Humpback Chub.  It has a very small habitat, in only a section of 4 rivers.  It has been on the endangered list since 1973.  I used the painting on the above website for the recreation of my picture.
