Another stenciled tee, this one for Pinkleo in the 12 Days of Christmas Swap.  I sent 7 Harry Potter themed gifts, one for each of the novels.  The first 6 items were opened on Day 6, but this one - in honor of how long Rowling kept all her rabid fans waiting - she couldn't open till Day 5.  This one is clearly for book 7.  I transferred the text with transfer paper, then painted it.  The back I stenciled with freezer paper.  I made up the stencil myself, and was really quite pleased with it.  I never really thought about how hard a simple outline design can be to get "just right".  (The idea actually came from my friend Ex_Gratia's tattoo, which can be seen on her profile, and is the symbol for the Deathly Hallows, made out of a Celtic knot, and a needle.)  It is the Deathly Hallows symbol made up of a needle, pencil, crochet hook, ruler, and a button.

Nobody could do that much découpage without calling on the powers of darkness.
