First, let me preface all the pictures by saying, please PLEASE just overlook the riddikulus dog collar he has on in all of them! It was supposed to be a bracelet that wrapped around twice but he got it in his head that he wanted to wear it as a necklace and there was no talking him out of it. Soo...it's there in all the pictures in all it's dorky glory! lol
I used Terra's Treasures Suburban Basic as the base for his shirt. Then (with much consulting from Kirsten), I decided on a faux bow-tie (appliqued on), a kangaroo pocket (freehanded) and freezerpaper stenciled glasses and lightning bolt.
On the back I reverse freezer paper stenciled "Gryffindor" using a Harry Potter font I found at www.dafont.com .
He also decided since I had made his brother a cape he needed one too. More freezer paper stenciling here too! I free-handed the shape of the cape (upcycled from an old polo of my husband's) and used the existing hem for the bottom. I hemmed the other edged and then added velcro to attach to his shirt.
I used the trace function on my Silhouette software to get the outline of the Gryffindor crest and and then ironed the freezer paper on and painted over it.
The front has a functioning pocket with a Harry Potter scar stenciled onto it and fake glasses peeking out of one side of the pocket.
This whole project was upcycled. The striped fabric was from a polo both my boys had outgrown and the maroon was a shirt I stole from my dad for just this purpose! ;)
Thanks for stopping by to check out my Gryffindor look and be sure to come back tomorrow to see my little Hufflepuff!!! (her's MIGHT be my favorite but I really like parts of all of them so much! )
