1  Re: Harry Potter swap 4 in The Swap Gallery by autumn_jodi on: January 05, 2006 08:50:34 AM
its been a shame actually, as my beautiful package has had to sit in the postoffice here since the 22nd as i was away until i came back up to scotland! was sooo excited to go and pick it up this morning!

i've lurked on the thread, seen all the pictures, been amazed by all the great stuff you've seen people make, but i have to say i think hgflower should win a prize for best stuff! i love all of it! (cant believe you were worried i wouldnt like somethings!!! ITS ALL BRILL!)

okay so, firstly, me and hgflower did  kinda unofficial city/country swap along with the HG theme, so everything was in a lovely box decoupaged with postcards of califonia, and inside some cool postcards from california too!!

then inside was a really cool purple weasleys wizard wheezes zip bag, which contained inside it: a pack of playing cards, and some instructions for popular Muggle card tricks,

and also: a weasleys wizard wheezes altoid tin containing something which is just the best thing ever, its so cute, and such a good idea:its a wheasley's wizard wheezes Patented Daydream Charm
( -- one simple incantation and you will enter a top-quality highly realistic, thirty-minute daydream, easy to fit into the average school lesson and virtually undetectable (side effects include vacant expression and minor drooling) not for sale to under-sixteens --)
of the QUIDDITCH WORLD CUP: including 1 snitch, 2 bludgers and a quaffle, brooms not included..
this is one of my fave things

AND THEN: something i've ALWAYS WANTED!!!
an awesome gryffindor scarf....AND  a hat!!! the scarf is sooo think and warm, its perfect, as i live in scotland and will soon be heading to St Petersburg for a holiday (app its -15 there...so i'll need the scarf!!)

and also: 2 cds: a christmas one 'Baby its cold outside' and a Hometown Bands of California one (which im actually listening to right now!!!) and a lovely card with a note inside too

i just want to thank hgflower for being an awesome swap partner and for making this so enjoyable! (any one who gets her for a partner in future swaps will be lucky to have her!!)

 and thanks to impalacy for organizing this swap

i got my parcel today!!!

i was walking home, completley miserable as it was STILL raining, i was soaked through and i had a 3hour lab to look forward to that afternoon....and what did i find on my doorstep?

my parcel from starpiste! all the way from Vancouver, Canada!

it totally made my day!
so here's what i got:
- a polar fleece scarf (apparently the polar fleece stuff is made from recycled pop bottles and car tires - its super cool i love the colour)
-HEMP lip protector (starpiste must be psychic as my lips have been really chapped from the evil cold/flu i had, so this is just the thing!)
-Vancouver shot glass
-stand tall postcard and 5 other postcards showing Vancouver
-Chopsticks - they're really pretty and i've already worn them as hair sticks!
-a crochet hook - im really excited about learning to crochet now
-menu and recipes from Kalin's favourite thai restaurant
-a litttle book of cutouts from the local alt-news and entertainment paper ' Best of Vancouver' issue, with kalin's notes and annotations - its a really cool way to learn about vancouver,
- a Cd of the music of vancouver - im listening to it right this moment!

thanks again to starpiste! this has been an awesome swap - im so glad i signed up for it!

woah this turned into a long post...!

4  aprons aprons aprons! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by autumn_jodi on: September 02, 2005 09:19:38 AM
Well, the new term at uni is soon starting (just over 2weeks till i go back - wahoo!) and seeing as this semester we're all moving into new houses/flats etc, everyone is making little housewarming gifts - one of my friends is painting each house a painting, etc, etc, so i thought - hmm...what can i do?

i saw laurasaurus's really really cute aprons and then i thought ....

BINGO - I can make some  little half-aprons - sort of 50s-style, as a bit of a joke - lol cause we're all getting all house-wife-y at the prospect of setting up our new houses, cooking for ourselves etc.

so these are the first two i made: (bear in mind they are a bit of a joke, and i know they look a bit tacky, bit brightly coloured - but hey, why not?)

(that one has a big pocket divided into 2, which u cant see in the photo for some reason...)

opinions on the brown ribbon would be appreciated: my dad likes it, my sister says it looks horrible with the strawberries..

Oh yeah, and when i was making these, i thought i'd make one for my nana too: so here's a pic of my Nana sporting her apron - she's 93!!!

Thanks for looking, guys Smiley
i have like 4 more aprons to make, so any suggestions of variations, improvements, or things you think would go wel lwith the strawberries/oranges, would be really welcome!!!

5  Power rangers t-shirt for a friend!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by autumn_jodi on: July 05, 2005 01:20:13 PM
Well, having made a skirt out of the power rangers duvet covers / curtains combo, i had loads of material left...and my friend Jonny had been hinting that he wanted me to make something for him...having heard of my newfound sewing obcession...
and he loves power rangers...

so i decided to make him a power rangers t
i cut out his favourite power ranger (yellow one...altho actually was originally gonna put all 5 on there as he couldnt choose between them...in the end it was just tooooo full with all of them on there..) so i also the power rangers logo. i bought a t-shirt from H&M and just sewed them on!!
sewing ended up a bit messy but i decided that it was supposed to look like that Wink

he likes it anyway!
my friend jonny in the t-shirt:
