Harry Potter "Always" Graphic Tee

I'm so excited to be part of Rae Gun Rambling's Happy Harry Potter Series with this Harry Potter-inspired "Always" Graphic Tee!  Get the details on her blog.

I love Harry Potter.  I wasn't introduced to the books until Book 4 came out when I was in college.  My younger roommate let me read her first one, and I was hooked!  From then on, I spent breaks in my class schedule holed up in the bookstore, reading a chapter or two at a time (since I was too poor to actually buy books for fun in college).

I of course, love the movies as well, even though the books are better!  And I am so proud to have three Harry Potter-loving children.  It makes my heart happy to see them reading the books over and over.

For my project, I created this "Always" Graphic Tee.  In case you need a refresher, this comes from this portion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:
      "But this is touching, Severus," said Dumbledore seriously.  "Have you grown to care for the boy,        after all?"
      "For him?" shouted Snape.  "Expecto Patronum!"
       From the tip of his wand burst the silver doe; She landed on the office floor, bounded once 
       across the office, and soared out of the window.  Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her
       silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.
        "After all this time?"

        "Always," said Snape.
-J.K. Rowling

Oh, Snape.  He is a flawed man, for sure, and certainly a questionable hero.  And yet this scene gets me every time.

Easily make this (or any) graphic tee by opening up Silhouette Studio, and creating your design.  You can download the file for this shirt here (in .studio format only).

Make sure to reverse the image before cutting on HTV.   

Load your HTV, shiny side down, and cut your design.

Weed or remove the excess HTV, leaving behind your mirrored design.

Place your image on your T-shirt with they design side down.  It should now look proper.

Place a towel or sheet over the carrier sheet (shiny clear plastic piece).  Iron firmly for suggested time.  Remove the backing, leaving behind your finished tee.

Now you can show your Harry Potter love anywhere you go.  People who aren't Harry Potter fans will just think it's a cute tee, but you are guaranteed to make some new Potterhead friends as they recognize your shirt!
