1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: Harry Potter Craftalong ~ Midsummer Term 2018 ~ Join anytime! on: July 15, 2018 07:02:15 PM
I've been trying to make pictures post for hours.  I'm so sorry.  I'm stuck just posting links. 

I want to start trying to build more dollhouse furniture. I started with a little shelf and worked up to a little bookcase.  I'm really enjoying myself.  I wanted to attach little decals to the kids' room furniture, but I couldn't seem to shrink the decals small enough to fit without making them unrecognizable.  It was nerve wracking, trying to get everything just right so it would all fit together, and then 3 days ago my brain reset and NOTHING was painted the right color.  They all had to be repainted.  

I'm so thankful for this craftalong.  It distracts me when everything else in life falls apart.  <3

Well dagnab it.  I'm back to posting links until IMGUR will load the pictures.  It's temperamental, isn't it?
Would you believe all of my attempts to load it loaded all at once the moment I hit the button to abandon it.  Woooo this reminds me to appreciate Craftsters picture hosting all the more.  O.O

Omg Moonflame!!!!  Those are gorgeous!!!

Erinaquaheart, those treats are positively mouth watering, and those scrapbook pages are adorable.

Mistress Jennie, my great grandmother's hobby was crocheting dollies.  That's the only craft she did.  Seeing yours brings back memories.  <3

GO KATIEBREAD!!!!!  Not gonna lie.  I have a Sterlite tub FULL of dolls I want to faceup.  I have all the tools.  I even have the Mr. Clean sealant.  I'm too scared to try.  *knocking knees*  YOU ARE THE BOMB!!!!

Thank you Moonflame.  Smiley  Did you see the doll house portraits?  The one with just William in it uses prizes I think you made.  <3

Guadiknight.  That calendar is adorable, and your tiny dresses are always so gorgeous.  Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy Class
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Adapted strollers
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I picked up a package of tiny strollers at the dollar store.  I used the best one and the most squashed one for this project.  I took the wheels and push bars off then removed the chassis with a drimel and an exacto knife.  I robbed the band from the squashed stroller's hood for the mobile for the bassinet.  The mobile is embroidery thread and circles stamped from a sheet of felt.  I used thick cardboard, several layers of paper towel, and fabric to make a tiny fitted matresses pad. I'm learning to use fabric glue.  I painted the squashed stroller yellow as all of the walls in my dollhouse have some degree of yellow.  I need to learn how to use gesso to prime plastic. Thus I adapted 2 baby shower favor strollers into a bassinet and a laundry basket for my dollhouse.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration Class
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Dollhouse Chart Baby Afghan
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This afghan did not want to be made.  For such a simple pattern I had to frog it countless times.  But I managed, by following the pattern closely, to knit this baby afghan on toothpicks for my dollhouse. I need better lighting in my room.  The embroidery thread I used to knit this is so much prettier than it looks in this picture.  It's a beautiful colorway of pink through blue.  Perfect for a baby blanket.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress Challenge: Knight Bus
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Birthday Presents for the Dollhouse
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Yesterday was AnnoyingLittleBrother's birthday.  I had him save me some of the wrapping presents to make presents for the dollhouse from.  I started by making cardboard boxes to wrap, and then realized they could easily be crushed so I dismantled them and stacked cardboard pieces, gluing them together.  I then wrapped the boxes with the wrapping paper and decorated the packages with ribbon cut down to size.  And then I learned how to make bows...... (Omg the bows take FOREVER)  SO thankful for Pintrest.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: A Dovecote for the Dollhouse
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: According to Wikipedia, a Dovecote is a structure intended to house pigeons or doves.  Having been around since at least Ancient Egypt, Dovecotes were built directly into the upper walls of farmhouses in Brittany.  The homing pigeon was selectively bred from rock pigeons for it ability to find its way back to its nest over extremely long distances.  This enables homing pigeons to be used to carry messages.  I built a lovely dovecote to hang near the rafters of the dollhouse.

Thank you SO MUCH, Inselaeffchen!!!!!  I'm really enjoying building stuff for the little doll house!!!!!  The hardest part is keeping the kids OUT of it.  Roflmbo.  It's like they've completely forgotten they have one of their own that's 3 times as big as mine.  Lol

I wish you the best of luck on your job hunt, TheArtsyRaven. Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo Powder Taj Mahal
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: A Wading Pool for the Calico Critters
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Who doesn't enjoy a cool dip in the Summer?  I built this sweet little wading pool from the top of a Folgers coffee canister.  I cut the top off and glued it onto a thick, Chinette paper plate and cut it down to fit a floor.  I layered white and then blue coats over the red plastic (for 3 days).  I found a bunch of water themed coloring pages online, shrank them, and colored them with colored pencils.  I really wanted to add an octopus but realized there was no way I could cut out tenticles that small.  I put a thick coat of modge on it protect it, and make it shiny.  I had SO MUCH FUN building this for my little doll house from scratch!!!! Cheesy
