Quidditch Inspired Kids Clothes - CraftingCon

Hey Guys!  I am participating in CraftingCon over at Mae & K today!  It is a really fun series/competition where the idea is to make kids clothes inspired by "geeky" themes.  But the catch is they have to be wearable, not costumes, something your kid can wear to the grocery store.

When I got the email to sign up for a theme I ran to sign up for this month...Harry Potter month.  I love Harry Potter but I have not done much Harry Potter crafting, just some Harry Potter peg people a couple years ago.  So I was really excited to combine my love of Harry Potter with my love of sewing for my kids!

After some deliberation, I decided to sew up some outfits inspired by the wizard game of Quidditch.  I made outfits for both my kiddos, A's outfit is inspired by a Quidditch player and Em is a fan.


My son's outfit was inspired by the Gryffindor Quidditch team outfits. 



He got a red shirt that mimics the red team sweaters and some grey One Thimble Ranger shorts like the pants the team wears.  Teh I added some with leather knee patches to the shorts, like the leather pads they wear to play Quidditch.  




And of course, you can’t play Quidditch without a broom!  So with a stick, a handful of pine needles and some ribbon, I whipped up a toddler sized Quidditch broom.  It is not something he would take to the grocery store, but it was a fun prop for photos!


For my daughters look, I gathered some inspiration from Hermione Granger, who is usually in the stands cheering on the Gryffindor team. I really like her style and my daughter has the perfect blondish curls to play the part of a toddler Hermione!


Em got an Aster Cardigan by Willow & Co. in Gryffindor colors to give my Quidditch fan that layered look Hermione is always sporting.  I took some inspriation from Hermione's pleated grey school skirt for her shorts, she got a pair of Clover shorts, also by Willow & Co., I love these shorts!



I found a little belt buckle in with a bunch of buttons I inherited from my grandmother and made Em a tiny little leather belt.

 
Under the cardigan, she has a Gryffindor Tee, a simple white shirt I made from one of my husbands old shirts with a freezer paper stenciled lion on it.  This was my first time doing a freezer paper stencil, I love ohw it turned out! 


And to finish off her outfit, a pair of golden snitch shoes! I picked up a pair of white canvas shoes, painted them with the same sparkly gold I used on her shirt and made some silver wings to attach to the laces.


So those are my Quidditch inspired outfits for my kids!  They are perfect for a trip to the grocery store, playing at the playground, or stopping by the Leaky Cauldron for a Butterbeer after the game! Make sure you swing by Mae & K today for even more photos of my outfits.  And head over to Friends Stitched Together too for more fun Harry Potter inspired crafting!
