Can’t get enough Harry Potter t-shirts

In case you haven’t figured it out, I L-O-V-E Harry Potter. As you saw I made a t-shirt for my friend’s birthday and that same weekend I made a t-shirt just for fun (for me :). This t-shirt features the characters from Harry Potter Puppet Pals. What?! You haven’t seen it? Well here you go:

When you are done laughing hysterically, check out the adorable (*cough* if I do say so myself) t-shirt!

I had this green t-shirt in my drawer that I never wear, so I decided to transform it into something magical. Here it is up close:

I used my Silhouette to create the image from this cartoon I found: Potter Puppet Pals Design by OntheMurderScene. Here is the PNG file if you want to cut out your own: Harry Potter Puppet PalsI will admit this design was very tricky to transfer to the t-shirt and it was too intricate for freezer paper and I had to resort to vinyl to make my stencil, but it worked out in the end! I just used fabric paint (the puffy kind you get in the little bottle) and a sponge brush to dab on the paint. I truly hope that I have strangers that quote this video to me in public…that would really make my day!

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.
