{DIY}: Harry Potter Hogwarts Blazer

DIY Harry Potter Hogwarts Blazer

If you are a Harry Potter fan like me, this is the right craft for you! Isn't this Hogwarts blazer awesome?! This is a great way to add new life to an old blazer that has been sitting in your closet since forever. Or, it would make an amazing gift for a Harry Potter fan like myself!

For this project, you will need:
  • A blazer (mine is from Forever21)
  • A Hogwarts patch
  • Safety pins (at least 3)
  • Scissors, needle, and black thread

To make this chic Hogwarts blazer, you just need to follow 3 easy steps:
  1. Start by placing the patch on your blazer wherever you think it might look good and hold it in place using the safety pins. 
  2. Then try the blazer on and look at yourself in the mirror to make sure the patch is where you like it. If not, try again until it looks just right.
  3. Once you are sure you like where the patch is located, start hand sewing the patch to the blazer. I didn't do anything fancy, I sewed it like you would a button (just up and down, if that makes sense). Make sure you sew as close to the edge of the patch as possible so that it isn't visible.

All done!!

This DIY was super duper easy, and it makes this plain blazer look so much more original and chic! Plus, it is perfect for Harry Potter fans like myself ;)

  1. Your blog is the cutest, Marie! It really showcases your fun personality and your lovely use of color.

    I think this Hogwarts blazer is so cool. And your chow is adorable. I have a Pomeranian, and I always think chows just look like bigger versions of them.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog--hope to see you around again! <3

  3. Oh Harry Potter! I like this blazer, because the patch isnt too noticeable to you could probbly get away with wearing it a lot. On a side note, where did you get you earrings??

  13. Thank you!! Yeah, it kind of reminds me of those Ralph Lauren or Rugby blazers that have the preppy patch on the packet. Oh, and these earrings are from Asos.com, but they are a little old so I'm not sure if they still have them. Thanks for all your kind words!

  24. Hi Bailey!! Sorry I didn't see your comment until now, how embarrassing. Yes, the patch was very affordable, I can't remember how much but somewhere around there. I just looked up on Amazon real quick and they have various price ranges from $5-$15 patches. Here is one in case you are still looking :) http://goo.gl/wmlDsD
