it seems like the "pin cushions" page is still up, but when you click on something to buy it, it sayd that the shopping cart has expired. I wonder if therte's a way to get her to take down the whole pin cushion page and not just the "chopping cart" portion. She shouldn't be keeping other people's hard work on her page without acknowledging the artist.

Then again, she shouldn't have taken this stuff in the first place. (Although according to her, "she didn't know that she wasn't supposed to". God what an idiot.)

EDIT: Updated pictues (aka better pictures)
Here's the second installment of Hagrid's pets: Buckbeak

I'm so proud of the back legs on this guy!

It took me nine and a half years to figure out how to do the head (I never exaggerate).

I completely agree with you guys. I decided to bypass the feathery-yarn look for Buckbeak's wings, and used the grey yarn to create feathers.

I'll have Buckbeak posted as soon as I get home from work! Smiley

Thank you so much you guys! This was the first project that I've posted on here that's been completely original, and I'm so honored that you guys think so highly of it! I'd better get crackin' on the other animals!

I need to make a hippogrif for a Harry Potter art show, and I need some help with the wings. I bought some yarn that I think I can crochet w/ the main color of the body to make it look more feathery, but I would certainly like some input.

First of all, here's the yarn (with a very curious and confused dog in the background):

And here the yarn crocheted with the main color:

Does it look feathery at all? Or just weird and spotty. Any should I go for an all white accent fluffy yarn, instead of the brown / black multi?

My friend is putting on a Harry Potter Fan Art show in a few weeks where there will fan art of all sorts, a screening of Brad Neely's "WIZARD PEOPLE, DEAR READER" and tasty wizard snacks.

When I first found out about it, I said to myself (in an Eeyore-esk voice) "Hmph. I love Harry Potter and would love to participate, but I'm not artistic. Ho-hum". Then my friend asked me if I wanted to contribute anything, and a lightbulb went off in my head. "Hello, amigurumi Harry Potter characters?!".

I didn't want to do the normal main characters, so I decided (with the help of my roomate) to make some of Hagrid's pets.

The first one I have done is Fluffy, the 3-headed dog:

I personally think his body is a little too large. But then again, I'm guessing a 3-headed dog would need to have some extra organs inside of the chest cavity (like extra sets of lungs and whatnot), so I suppose it works. (Even if it didn't work, I'm NOT about to tear this damn thing apart).  Wink

I'm working on Buckbeak / Witherwings right now, and the last one I want to get done is Norbert. You know they'll get posted here when I'm done with them.

awesome! Thanks. I didn't have stuffing / stockings around when I stuffed my most recent project, but I did have sleeves from a black t-shirt that I cut off. I cut the t-shirt into strips and used that for stuffing. It made it pretty heavy, and I had to work it into shape for a little while, but it worked great. I'll post what I made on the  "Finished Projects" board.  Smiley

Thanks for the tips! You'll all be able to see the fruits of my labor (and your useful tips) as soon as I finish these little guys!

So should I put the stocking inside of the ami, and then stuff it? Or stuff it first, and then squeeze it in. It seems like stuffing it first would make it a lot harder to get inside of the ami.

Does anyone know of stuffing / polyfil that isn't stark white? I'm making something with dark brown yarn and I don't want teeny-weeny white dots between my stitches. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
