Work in progress

This blog is mainly to showcase finished things that I make….but this is just too cute. This evening I was watching a little Harry Potter while trying to finish a striped crochet bag that I have been working on all fall. As I worked Lucy, the cat, comes and parks herself right in front of the computer and sits there watching the movie until the end. Of course, I had to whip out my camera and snap a few pics:

The bag so far. It is going to be an oversized shoulder bag that I plan to use for transporting crafts 🙂

Close up of the fabric. This is literally just a double crocheted stripe…easy, great for evening TV Harry Potter watching.

Unless I got her attention, she sat glued to the action!

One more for the road…because she’s so cute.


Freezer Paper T-Shirts

This weekend I decided to try out the freezer paper stenciling that I’ve seen all over the blogosphere. I had found a great Harry Potter graphic and photoshopped it to work with my Silhouette SD to cut it out of photo paper. 

Doesn’t he just make you happy?! He certainly made me happy. For the caption I decided on: I solemnly swear that I am up to no good, in this fantastic Harry Potter font found here.

Of course I decided on this craft at about 10pm so my mom and I headed to WalMart…can you believe it that they had NO women’s t-shirts? What?! I found a white generic one in the craft section, but I am underwhelmed with it’s quality. Oh well, this was sort of my trial run so a generic t-shirt will do.

It took some trial and error…I learned quickly that placing  the freezer paper letters is kind of tricky, but here is how she turned out:

I decided (at about 1:ooam) to add this to the back:

It turned out pretty well if I do say so myself 🙂 I’m going to send it to my friend Kara for her birthday…we’re pretty big Potter nerds, so I think she’ll appreciate it!

Mischief Managed.
