HP

So I spent most of today making Harry Potter shirts. I only had to make 12 of them but for some reason it took me forever. Screen printing is a process and if one little thing goes wrong sometimes you have to start over from the beginning. Which has happened to me many a times. Sometimes it's a hard hobby for a perfectionist like me:)
Anyways, I had two different designs to make so I had to make one set first then wash and re-coat my screens for the second design. First I dyed all the shirts a Wine color using RIT dye. Something I learned this time around is that if you have shirts that are not 100% cotton your dye will have a heathered look to it. You can see in the pics the color difference between some of the shirts.

I made these shirts for my sister and her friends. I put HP7 on the front pocket area and this quote on the back. The gold ink didn't show up as bright as I was hoping on the back but oh well...

Then my friend Carrie came over with some yummy homemade chicken noodle soup and she helped me with the second batch of shirts.  We had some good laughs and slowly but surely got all the shirts done.

Carrie came up with what she wanted on these shirts. She wanted the symbol on the front to have a hand drawn look to it so I used the screen filler/fluid method for that part. Then we screen printed this quote on the back. 
 I have no idea what any of these symbols or quotes mean but I feel like more of a HP fan after today:) Hope all you true HP fans love the new movie coming out this weekend.

Allison!!! You have to read the series, they really are amazing! I didn't know what to do when I was through. The movies are great but the books...ahhhh. I read them when I was pregnant with Amelia.

Those shirts are great! If you don't have time to read the Really long books.. get the audio books! Our kids 3 and 5. LOVE them. The performer does SUCH a good job with all the voices! Have fun at the movie!
