Freezer Paper Stenciling: Harry Potter Ravenclaw Outfits

I have never done freezer paper stencils before and have no idea why I waited to do them until now. Granted I was not aware of them until fairly recently. This would have worked so much better for littleman's "only child expiring" shirt blogged about here.

Crafting Con

Since I needed something to take my mind off the Star Wars outfits, I decided to jump in and join the linky party for the Harry Potter CraftingCon. Have you seen it yet? You should check out the awesome contestants and their wonderful outfits. Also, all the great projects that are being linked up!

I took a quiz for my own house placement in Harry Potter and was sorted into Ravenclaw, so what better way to contribute and link in for Harry Potter than to create something using that house? And since my sew time is taken up by other projects, I needed and wanted to try Reynolds Freezer Paper *affiliate* stenciling (seriously, so many tutorials on Google, it's crazy)...

I printed and traced onto Reynolds Freezer Paper *affiliate* (you know, in case I wanted to use the design again), and cut and ironed. Little man painted. He was so excited to paint. Poor thing has been bugging me to paint. Perfect opportunity! :)
I found the image for the house mascot here. I had some difficulty on what colors to use. Go with the movie (blue and silver?) or go with the book (blue and bronze?) and ultimately decided to go with the movie. 1. I was rushing and did not sew up the kids clothes. Bronze is difficult to come by. 2. I got some paint but little man was not happy with the idea that I would be doing some painting...
*update* I used the lettering from here.
Here is little man's outfit.

He wasn't too keen on taking pictures, and since it is 100+ degrees outside, taking pictures out there isn't really happening...

And, baby girl's outfit kind of. The shorts don't really fit yet, still a little too big. Not to mention the freezer paper didn't stick as well because there were so many wrinkles gathers. But, little man even painted her shirt and chose placement! I love it! :)

It is so hard taking pictures of a little girl who just wants to hold your hand and will just as easily scream as cry until she gets your hand. Not to mention little man had gone down for a nap as soon as she had woken up. I'm really excited!
Check out the other link-ups and some incentive if you haven't yet. If you could make something Harry Potter themed, what would you make?
