The Mortal Instruments Movie and a Shadowhunter Shirt

I have had so much fun watching the beginnings of the The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Movie pop up all over the interweb. You guys know that I love Cassandra Clare and her Shadowhunter world! I said it before but I think that this movie is going to be huge! The books are fantastic if you haven’t read them you need to. Although my crafty geekiness has already been established but I may have reached a new level of dorkiness with this one.

So yes I totally LOVE my shirt (tutorial for sewing the actual shirt to come soon) but I felt like such a silly girl standing in the store after rearranging the books and taking pictures of myself. I went to Walmart though since I figured I wouldn’t be bugged by employees (it’s not like you can even find one when you want too) and let’s be honest I definitely wasn’t going to be the weirdest person there, even with my fangirling.

You see I did try to take some pictures at home but even attempting to channel my inner Izzy, I don’t think I pulled off “tough shadowhunter”. But I did want to show off my shirt.

If you want to make your own. Here’s the image I used for the words and you can use it for your freezer paper stencil.

And if you’ve never done that before (you must try it’s so much fun!) here are my full step by step freezer paper stenciling instructions to help you out with the tecnique. Let me know if you have any questions.


  1. I haven’t read these ones yet. I just started the Mistborn series. I think I will add this to the pile for next.

  2. What you haven’t you definitely need to put them on hold at the library. THey are SO fun! I haven’t read mistborn yet let me know what you think when you’re done!

  3. I just finished the latest and I’m curious to see how they’ll make them all into movies. I think we are literary kindred spirits:)

  4. I just barely got the most recent book from the library. I CANNOT wait for the movie! I think the cast looks fantastic!

  5. LOVED those books! Now I am going to have to back and re-read them all. ;) I am so excited about a movie version, hopefully whoever does will do a great job. ;)

  6. Hi! I’m visiting from the blog hop :D I LOVE LOVE LOVE these books, and cannot wait for the movies! I’m overall very happy with the casting and I think it will be huge! Fingers crossed

  7. I loved these books! But I must admit, I do love the Clockwork books even more. Even though they are the same Shadowhunter world, I love the Victorian London setting. Cannot wait for March for Clockwork Princess!!

  8. There’s something I adore about the clockwork books, okay may it’s just that I adore Will ….yeah I said it. But I just don’t feel the automatons that much luckily they don’t take up much geography in the books so I still like them a ton. I’m excited to see what she’ll be doing with the Dark artifices the next series. Thanks for stopping by always great to have more crafty book friends :)
