CLOSED: Harry Potter Craftalong - Yule 2020/21

I did make a few duplicates - still quite new to watercolours, so have a limited range of designs I know how to do :wink:

I used peel off stickers like this - https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Papermania-Stickers-Multi-One-Size/dp/B01LSN2KA0/ref=sr_1_14?dchild=1&keywords=peel+off+stickers+happy+christmas+silver&qid=1611348193&sr=8-14 - only in silver :rofl:

Oh wow! I thought they were embossed at first but the backside was still smooth. Stickers make much more sense. Lol.

Project Name & Page Link: Valentine’s Day Cards
Brief Description: I created these 10 Valentine’s Day cards completely out of items from my stash: paper, embroidery thread, fabric, washi tape… I love my stash!
Project Picture: Have blurred the image in case you are in the swap and don’t want to see what I’ve made

I love them so much because as well as being cards, the recipients can pull them apart when they are finished and reuse/repurpose the embroidery - I made them on an 8 inch square piece of fabric so they would have options :smiley:

Project Name & Page Link: Christmas Economy Quilt Blocks
Brief Description: I am aiming to make around 120 of these 6 inch square quilt blocks for a big Christmas quilt ready for 2021. These were the first 15 that I made. I put them up on my wall with washi tape to check them out (I don’t have a proper design wall, yet :wink: ) and I just love them as a little decoration! I think I’m going to have to make myself a proper mini quilt to hang there when I eventually do take them down.

Brief Description: I made this for my brother for Christmas last year, using the pillowcases he used as a child. He was really impressed with the gift, as he didn’t know I even had them (I’d had them for about 9 years!) There are loads and loads of straight lines in the quilting!

~ ADVANCED STUDIES PROPOSAL ~
Project Name: Muggle Doll Shoes
House: Hufflepuff
Brief Description: With a new term coming up I am feeling motivated to try something I have been wanting to learn for a while. Muggle dolls have such small feet. It is a wonder to me how shoes can be built in such a tiny proportion without magic. I have tried to create a couple of pairs, but they turned out terrible. I would like to devote time to learning to create doll shoes.
I want to create them using different mediums:
*fabric *polymer clay *pleather *altering premade shoes
Along with using different materials, I would like to make a variety of shoe types:
*sandals *heels *boots *slippers
Learning from previous shoe failures I need to try a variety of glues and learn from some master shoemakers via youtube.

Lastly, I need to make a shoe rack to display the new shoes. I expect it to take 20 or more hours to become a decent apprentice shoemaker. I am hoping to have the project done in a month.

Project Name & Page Link: Paw Patrol Travel Pillow Cases
Brief Description: I got these little travel pillows for my girls to take to daycare and on car rides. They came with perfectly fine pillow covers, but after a year, I felt we could spruce them up a bit. Paw Patrol is a current fave in our house, so I deconstructed the old case (it had a nice flap that tucked in on the open edge) and whipped up some replacements! Now we can travel in style. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
