  • Step 1

    Pre-wash both shirts without fabric softener.

  • Step 2

    Find the center of each shirt by folding in half towards the front and matching the sleeves.

  • Step 3

    Mark the top and the bottom with a pin. If using a rotary cutter, this is your cutting line. If using a straight edge, draw a pencil line from top to bottom.

    Cut as straight as possible.

  • Step 4

    Sleeve Reconstruction:

    Select the red shirt right and black shirt left and carefully remove the sleeves from each side of the shirt using a seam ripper. Be very careful to not stretch the fabric.

  • Step 5

    Swap the sleeves so that red is with black and black is with red.

  • Step 6

    Turn the shirt half you are working on inside out and place the sleeve, right side out inside the
    sleeve hole (right sides will be together), matching the top and bottom creases.

  • Step 7

    Pin the sleeve in place, being careful not to stretch the fabric.

    Using a stretch stitch on your sewing machine, stitch in a 1/4" to 1/2" seam all the way
    around. If stitching by hand, take small stitches.

    Repeat for the other sleeve.

  • Step 8

    Shirt Body Reconstruction:

    Place one shirt inside the other, right sides together so that the wrong sides of the seam lines
    will be on the outside. You will have two seams, a front and a back.

  • Step 9

    Carefully pin starting at the t-shirt ribbing and work your way down, trying not to stretch the
    fabric.

    If the bottoms hems do not meet, pin the bottom edges together and ease along the middle of the shirt.

    Carefully stitch along this line as for the sleeves.

    Snip the corners of the inside seams on the diagonal.

    Turn the shirt right side out.

    Stenciling the front (Hogwarts Crest)

    Print the Hogwarts Crest Stencil on to Freezer Paper.

    Cut out the four sections of the Hogwarts Crest stencil.

    Place cardboard or newspaper inside the t-shirt to protect from bleed through.

  • Step 11

    Using a warm iron, carefully place the stencil on the upper left side of the shirt (the black
    side).

    Using white fabric paint, stencil all four sections.

    Allow stencil to dry without removing.

    After the white paint has had time to dry, stencil the upper left section red, the upper right
    section green, the lower left section yellow and the lower right section blue.

    Gently peel stencil away and allow to dry.

    Paint a letter H over the four sections in gold paint.
