Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Kneazle Plushie for Puppy
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417786.msg4943599#msg4943599
Brief Description: Simple kitty plushie given a tufted tail like a lion to make it a Kneazle. This little Kneazle has donated all its whiskers for wands.
Project Picture:

I understand completely if it doesn't count because it's plain and only has the plumed tail. In retrospect, I should have given it stripes but the puppy won't surrender it.

382  Kneazle Plushie in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: December 10, 2012 11:53:49 PM

For the HPC Care of Magical Creatures challenge. This little thing is about six inches tall, made of fleece, loosely stuffed and completely hand-sewn. It took me about an hour to sew but that's only because when I hand sew, I make my stitches really small so that I know my work won't come apart. I also made sure to make them smaller than usual because this is for a very tenacious puppy. That's also why this poor Kneazle has no eyes or whiskers. I don't want the puppy to pull them off and eat them.

Made using the mini cat pattern by Runo http://nuno-runo.blogspot.com/2009/08/mini-cat.html

This is the template I drew up. It's very rough but it's good enough for me to understand. My dad helped me with the math and it should be big enough for my queen size bed when I'm finished with it.

Class: Potions
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Shrinking Potion
Brief Description: I have a lovely neon pink purse that I absolutely adore. I decided that it would be the perfect thing to use a shrinking potion on since I wouldn't lose it because of the bright color! Now I need to search through my potions book and find the Swelling Potion recipe so that I can return it to its proper size.
Project Picture:

(It took me half an hour to do this because I've never sewn something so small. I don't know that I want to ever again, either!)

385  Yummy turtles for those with a big sweet tooth in Dessert by RedheadWithThread on: December 01, 2012 02:32:45 PM
I made this delicious candy for Christmas last year. My family loves sweets, especially my dad, so the fact that the recipe makes so much was very appealing. Sadly, it rained the day I made them and the candy didn't get firm so it had to be eaten with a spoon. They still tasted good though Cheesy
There's one missing in the photo because my dad took it.

2 c. light corn syrup
2 c. sugar
1 stick butter
2 c. whipping cream
half-can sweetened condensed milk
1 lb. pecan halves
1 lb. dipping chocolate, melted

Combine sugar and corn syrup in a covered saucepan. Bring to boil and let cook for 2 minutes. Add butter and stir until the butter melts. Combine cream and condensed milk in double boiler. Cook over hot water until heated through. DO NOT BOIL IT! Add to the corn syrup mixture 2 tablespoons at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition. Cook to 230 to 240 degrees on a candy thermometer, soft-ball stage. Arrange pecan halves in pairs on a buttered platter. Spoon the candy mixture over each pair 1 tablespoon at a time. Allow to stand until firm. Coat with the melted chocolate.
Yield: approx. 5lbs.

386  I don't knit but I need this "knitting/knotting" yarn in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by RedheadWithThread on: November 30, 2012 11:47:20 PM

I bought the above yarn at Hobby Lobby a few months ago. I have long since tossed out the package and don't remember the name of it.
I know someone's going to say "just go to Hobby Lobby and see" but the nearest one is nearly seventy miles away and it would be more efficient for me to order it online, if I can.
I tried looking it up online but I have no idea what it's called. I had someone tell me it's called "eyelash yarn" but searching "purple eyelash yarn" is very broad.
I do remember that the package said the yarn could be used to knit a scarf or knotted in a few places to make a knotted scarf. The package also had a cartoonish girl on it that was wearing a fuzzy scarf made of the yarn.
I'm attempting to crochet the yarn for the mane and tail of a plushie I'm making  and I have a feeling that I'll be needing more.
I know I said I'm crocheting but I posted it here because I hoped maybe a knitter would have used it or heard of since it was aimed at knitting.
Thanks for any help!

387  Masterball pincushion in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by RedheadWithThread on: November 30, 2012 12:57:26 AM
I've been playing Pokmon for nearly as long as it's been available in the US.
I have loads of felt, especially purple (since it IS one of my favorite colors), that I got really cheap.
One day, while playing Pokmon Black, I suddenly had a brilliant idea: make a Masterball pincushion.
So I did a search of the patterns saved to my computer and found a simple ball pattern (http://www.thesilverpenny.com/FeltBall.html) that I had saved. I made half the segments in purple and half in white. I also cut some vaguely oval shapes from pink felt and glued them on along with an M cut from white felt. The black band, black circle, and white circle were all sewn on and are also made of felt.

If you're a member of devArt, you may have seen this there in the gallery of DementedGothAngel, which is my screen name there.
