Hi folks! My weekend isn't quite here yet as I'm working both today and tomorrow but as the Harry Potter Craft-a-long finishes today I thought I would bend my posting schedule and share the photos of my final two projects ^_^
For the Reducio challenge I had to make something small, so I made this little hat for my Blythe doll Tarquin.
I made it without a pattern, and I think it turned out pretty well!
I kinda want to make a full sized version for myself now ~_^
I used some vintage yarn from my Nana Tess so I'm not sure what it actually is, but I'd put my money on acrylic. I really love the colour though!
The other project is for Detention with Snape; the challenge being to finish off a WIP. I started altering this wooden drawer set ages ago but had only got as far as the first coat of wood stain. But now it's finished – yay!
I used black acrylic paint to age the wood; I did some coats just as a light wash, others as undiluted paint, and several more in between of varying strengths.
The labels are vintage book pages from one of the book safes I made; I just cut them to size and slipped them into the label holders.
I think I'm going to use this for craft room storage – it's the perfect size for haberdashery.
And that's it! The Craft-a-long is finished! I'm going to do the next semester (which starts in a couple of days) as well; I had a lot of fun and I'm really impressed with how many crafts I ended up creating ^_^
Do you think you'll join me for the autumn semester? (Even though it's spring over here?)
