I've been waiting and waiting for the first part of the 7th movie to come out and we went to see it this weekend. Earlier in the week though I had come across Raegunwear's blog where they had a Harry Potter crafting party.
How fun! I was inspired to make a Harry Potter shirt of my own (Yes I am a 29 year adult with a child and I'm making clothes for myself based on a children's book- I'm not embarassed.)
I have made some T-Shirts before but this time I thought I'd try a technique I saw on Susan's blog Living With Punks.
I started by creating my template on the computer. I downloaded the Harry Potter Lighting Font and created this:
After I printed it out I traced it onto Freeze Paper and cut it out using an Exacto Knife (See Susan's Blog for all the details!)
I ironed the Freezer Paper stencil onto the shirt then painted it. I ended up with this:
Ya, I wore it to the movie. Probably won't wear it again until the next movie comes out but I'm proud of it.
