S.P.E.W.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope it’s going well for you so far, or at least better than the Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare did.

The Society is from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Hermione creates it in protest of house-elf slavery, but it’s not a success. I don’t think she’s the best at creating abbreviations for societies, either.

I used different fabric for this badge, I think it’s a plain cotton. I’ve used it before to make Snatchcorn’s rug, but I’ve never used fabric that’s not muslin for a badge, and I’m really happy with how it turned out.

It’s the third badge with the glue-on-the-back method, and the fourth circular one I’ve made.

It’s also the second Potter badge I’ve made, and I plan on making a badge with Luna’s pink glasses on, I believe they were first seen in the Order of the Phoenix movies. (Correct me if I’m wrong!)

Anyways, see ya!

2017 In Review

Whew! What a year!

I believe last year I re-capped the year in 12 photos, and I thought I’d do the same this year, so we can see how my skills have developed. Starting with January:

Looking at the pictures I chose, I seemed to do a lot of sewing and crochet this year! There were quite a few big achievements, including the knitted socks, the shawl (my first crocheted item of clothing), and publishing the Occamy pattern.

I was also able to make some miniature food this year, including the delicious cinnamon rolls – don’t they look delightful? I also think my miniatures skills have improved alongside my sewing/embroidery and crochet skills, what with the trophies.

Hopefully next year I can continue improving, and try to make a few more big projects, like sets (*cough* Diagon Alley), as I find them just as fun as the little projects I make in between.

It’s been amazing sharing this year with all you wonderful readers, your comments truly make me happy, and I enjoy sharing in your blogging journeys too.

Anyways, see ya next year!

13th Doctor Outfit

Sarah’s gift for Christmas this year was a 13th Doctor cosplay, according to the official image released by the BBC.

She loves it.

You can see the enormous pockets as well as the black hem at the bottom here. I painted the coat fabric with acrylics to get the right colour, as it’s a bit of an obscure colour. In the official image, it’s almost a grey-beige.

These are possibly my favourite shoes I’ve made for Sarah. They’re fake leather, with ribbon and what I think is brown cord for the laces.

I painted the shirt design with acrylics, and the suspenders are yellow ribbon tucked into the waistband of the pants.

There is a hood, but it’s mostly for aesthetics, as the scraps I used are a little small to fit over her head.

Naturally, I felt we needed some outdoor shots. (She’s using the Tenth Doctor’s screwdriver because I don’t know what hers looks like, if she has one.)

IMG_2415_1

Eeeeee! It looks so good! I’m really happy with how it turned out, I think I got very close to the reference picture. I haven’t watched the Christmas special yet, but I’ve heard good things about 13’s brief appearance, so I’m confident.

Anyways, see ya!

Sarah’s Stocking

I made Sarah a stocking not long ago, with felt, sequins, and a little bit of ribbon.

IMG_2393_1

IMG_2394_1

It’s hollow, so you could put a very small gift inside.

IMG_2392_1

IMG_2395_1

I believe this is where stockings normally reside, over the fireplace? *checks Google Images* Yeah, I think so. 😀

IMG_2396_1

In other news, Sarah’s gift this year is finished and wrapped as well.

IMG_2397_1

S: ”It’s enormous in comparison to last year’s!” Well, I couldn’t fold it any smaller – oh. “Ha! It’s made of fabric!” Darn it! I was hoping you wouldn’t find that out. Ah well, makes it more exciting, I guess.

Anyways, see ya!
