So about a million years ago (about a year and a half) I played in the Hogwarts Kit Swaps summer camp swap. its been so long that i cant really remember what the theme was but i think that we we all split up into summer camp cabins and you were supposed to make them a kit that coincided with the name of the cabin. i DO remember that the idea was to send them something for THEM to craft to pass the time over the summer.
First things first you need snacks for crafting so i sent a potions card and ingredients to make Toads in a Cauldron. The crafting part of this kit i made was based on Kreecher (my pals cabin was Grimmauld Place). My friend from gryffindor house Stacey Designed these awesome badges that i turned into shrinky dink charms. I included all the other fixins for making stitch markers like beads and findings.
I found these tins at Michaels for less that $1 each and designed and printed the labels on sticker paper. one tin for each element of the stitch marker materials. I also sent some pretty yarn that matched the color scheme, a lego toy for her son to build his own flying ford anglia and an autgraphed picture of Gilderoy Lockhart. i just mounted that photo on two fancy pieces of cardstock and the image i found on the internet and just printed it on photo.
My spoiler sent me this amazing Gryffindor themed kit! There were needles, yarn, and a pattern to make these Gryffindor Lion Shadow Mittens. they look really challenging (not being a very advanced knitter and all) but im gonna give them a try cause they are super spiffy and i want them on my paws!
She also sent some lovely gryffindor colored buttons and this awesome fox mug. I love everything and I know i said oodles of thanks over of the group page but i felt like its not officially official until i share it over here. a very belated extra thanks to Mafalda for this wonderful package. :0)
