Slytherin Hoodie by AmazonMandy Slytherin Hoodie by AmazonMandy
*Note: I did NOT make the Gryffindor hoodie, it's a comparison!!*

Me and another close Harry Potter nerd got separated into our houses, myself as a Gryffindor and he as a Slytherin (which we are both ecstatic about!). But because he's now a Slytherin, he kindly gave me his Gryffindor hoodie. I decided I wanted to get him a Slytherin hoodie in return, but for some TERRIBLE reason, Universal only made these beautiful hoodies for the Gryfs, and not for other houses ... BOOO!!!!

So instead I made him his own hoodie, trying to duplicate the style of the Gryffindor one. There's some things on it I'm not 100% happy about, I might try to make another one sometime a little better.

I created my own fabric stamps for the gray on the inside of the hoodie. I painted on the graffic behind the snake with silver, and the snake is Satin Stitched on (I will never own an embroidery machine ;.;. The lettering down the arm is fabric paint.

I wish I could take commissions for these, but I know people never want to pay for stuff like this. Everyone thinks, "well, I can go to Walmart and get a hoodie for $14, why the heck would I pay anyone much more than that for one??" without realizing how very much time and effort goes into things like this.

The one universal studios made for slytherin looks stupid. I would so pay a good 80 bucks for one like this.

Thank you so much! Unfortunately, materials alone for this cost about $50. I can't mass produce them in China like Disney, so it's a lot more expensive and most people just don't want to pay that for just a hoodie, which I don't blame them, that's why I don't sell these along with my commissions. :)

They actually make hoodies pretty similar to this in all of the houses now, when I had made this they hadn't. They sell them at the Disney Harry Potter stores everywhere for about $80. There's no way I could make something that takes this much time for that price, so I'd say grab one at the stores! :)

I would buy one. I also have been sorted into Slytherin and am left out of a lot of awesome swag WB seems to only put out for the Gryffindors.....as if Slytherin was just a freakin important. Hell, we have our own hidden chamber of awesome. We deserve awesome swag too! But seriously, if you were to sell these I'd buy two. i know the effort put into such items, I've tried myself to make sweaters and other clothing, I just don't have the patients or skill to do it properly.

Recently while on vacation I saw a girl wearing the Gryffindor one and her friend had a Hufflepuff version. Sadly I've only found the Gryffindor one online. =( Your Slytherin one looks amazing!

So this got me wondering if there were any fabrics out there with Harry Potter themed prints and when I found NOTHING I searched for ways to have custom patterned cloth and came up with a great site right off. [link] If you ever wanted to make any more of these and try selling them, you could order a few yards with a slytherin pattern already on it. $16/yd is obviously not cheap fabric, but the hood area isn't too large. As long as you're not doing the whole lining in it, it wouldn't be a huge hit.

Anyway, Honestly, I'd probably fork over $90 for one of these, custom ordered. I don't think I could quite warrant the expense if it was higher than that, but I definitely acknowledge that making clothing is nothing like buying a hoodie from Walmart that was manufactured en mass from taiwan.

I still remember how expensive it was just for the fabric alone when I made my own Slytherin robes for Halloween two years ago. (But robes are a LOT of fabric - and everything was doubled for the lining - lol)

So yeah - this is awesome. I imagine it'd be easier to take commissions for something like this if you automated some of the more tedious bits, like the hood lining.

Thank you! I love Spoonflower, but yes, it gets expensive fast! I know what you mean about a lot of fabric, though...robes and capes take up SO MUCH FABRIC. They add up so fast. :)

Dude that hoodie is amazing and if I could afford it I would buy one for sure. As for your walmart comment: Do you know how many people shop exclusively at brand name places? I have one friend who only shops at American Eagle. He paid like $80 for a TSHIRT. The hoodies there are over $100 and people buy them all the time. People would definitely buy your sweaters.

That is seriously the coolest thing ever. What'd you have to go through to make the inner-lining pattern on the hood? Did you actually find a cloth with the pattern on it (It doesn't look manufactured) or did you somehow do it by hand?

That's crazy cool.

Not want to pay? Hell I would! I know how hard it is to make stuff like this! (I make custom shoes myself, I can only imagine how hard it is to work with a more difficult kind of fabric)

Depends on how much you'd charge though? ;P
