Harry Potter Countdown: Forget Harvard this Baby’s Hogwarts Bound

My good friend who also is a Potter fiend had a sweet baby girl a few weeks ago. And I just couldn’t help but make her a Gryffindor onesie outfit. I wish I could say I’d put these onesie sets in the shop but freezer paper stenciling is such a finicky sport that I just can’t do it. (It took me 4 tries to cut out a Hogwarts stencil on my cricut and I smudged it a bit peeling the stencil off). But you can make your own!

If you want to make your own I explain how to do freezer paper stenciling in this post if you have a Cricut Explore you could just run the freezer paper through the machine easy peasy. It’s easy the hardest part is cutting out the stencil. You can kind of see the steps in my pictures.

Basically you cut the stencil out of freezer paper, iron it down and then paint and peel the stencil off

As you can see I kind of smudged the paint taking the stencil off. But I added sparkles and it’s fine. Design feature right? Yeah only a few more days left until the movie. And Lisa if you’re reading this, Molly has something coming in the mail :)

Here’s the image if you want to give it a go yourself.

UPDATED: I’ve had a few people ask if they can buy sets. I don’t sell freezer painted tops since they can be finicky and have regular flaws but I do sell this similar Harry Potter based Gryffindor baby outfit (I’m happy to do other houses too). And if you want to make your own top and just purchase the bottoms you can buy this customizable listing and just remind me in the notes that you want the bottom to be just like Gryffindor ones. Hope that helps.
