So, first a disclaimer. I pretty much shamelessly stole this design from user Riddikulus's post here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177375.0 but she said she wants other people to interpret them, so I obliged!

I basically just took a black tee and with a combo of freehand painting and stenciling got the design on there, then sewed a hood on the back.  I love it and I can't wait to wear it on Friday for the release!



The finished shirt!

It has a hood!




Close up of the Gryffendor crest (anyone have any ideas on how to get that remnant of freezer paper off?!)

Thank you so much for the inspiration, Riddikulus! If anyone wants to do a personal Harry Potter swap, I'd be happy to make you one of these babies!

k that's adorable.

As for the freezer paper, try lifting the edge up with a pin, then pulling it off.

thanks! i'll try the pin thing, although there seems to be some wax or whatever is on freezer paper still on the shirt, although i hand washed it already.

Insanely adorable.

I'm making a costume for the release too.

Haha. I can wait until craftster gets totally bombarded with HP crafts because of it. (its already happening)

great interpretation of the idea! Really cool, reminds me of some of the stuff on the run ways where they sew shirts onto t shirts...

Great job with that...  It looks great on you and you can totally tell exactly what it is supposed to be.   I wonder if you could warm up the paper just a tad and then pull it off...  I haven't tried the freezer paper yet, but maybe if the wax got a tad warm it might come off???  Dunno...  but great job!
