Harry Potter Hogwarts House Shirts + Free Cut Files

Add some magic to your wardrobe with this set of Free Hogwarts House Cut Files!

Harry Potter Hogwarts House Shirts

July is one of my favorite months because it's Harry Potter's birthday! What better way to celebrate than to share Harry Potter crafts?! Just like Harry, I would love to escape the otherwise boring muggle world and live my authentic life as a wizard (which makes the Wizarding World of Harry Potter a dream come true)! If you're a wizard at heart like me, these Hogwarts house shirts are just what you need. They are such a fun way to display your Hogwarts house pride on shirts, tote bags, home decor, and SO much more!!

To make your own "Muggle Hogwarts House" shirts, you'll need these supplies:

Cricut Design Space

Upload the "Muggle Hogwarts House" cut file into Design Space and size the image to fit your shirt. Ungroup the design, and delete all of house names except for the one you want to use. Select different parts of the design to change colors as necessary (i.e., words/wands). If your shirt is a bright color, I would personally make the words white or black, and then get a little more creative with the wands using gold or silver glitter HTV.

Cricut Design Space

Select the parts of the design that are the same color, and click "Attach" from the bottom right menu to keep the images in place. If you don't attach them, all of the parts of the design will arrange themselves to fit the mat instead.

Cricut Design Space

Before cutting the iron-on vinyl, make sure to mirror your image! If you don't, your design will be backwards when you put it on the shirt. To do this, select the mat thumbnail in Design Space before cutting, and click the "Mirror" toggle to reverse the image.

Lilac Cricut Explore Machine

For these shirts, I cut white HTV and gold glitter HTV with my Cricut Explore Air 2 machine. Place the vinyl face-down on the mat, and load it into the machine. Change the material settings to the type of vinyl you are cutting, and then click the "Go" button to cut the vinyl.

"Weed" the excess vinyl by removing all of the parts that don't belong in the design. I usually peel away the outer edges first starting at the corner, and then work my way around the design. Then I use weeding tools to help remove the smaller pieces of the design.

Cricut EasyPress

Plug in the EasyPress 2 and power it on. Each kind of HTV has a different heat and time setting, so be sure to check the recommended EasyPress settings before getting started. Adjust the heat and time setting to your shirt and vinyl specifications. Once the light turns green and the machine beeps, it's ready to use.

When the EasyPress is up to temperature, place your shirt on the EasyPress Mat and preheat the area for 5-10 seconds. Lay the HTV down on the shirt, with the clear carrier sheet facing up. Set the EasyPress over the vinyl and press the green "C" button. Hold firmly in place while the timer counts down. Turn the shirt over and press the EasyPress firmly again for 15 seconds.

Peel off the carrier sheet while the vinyl is still warm. If you are layering vinyl, repeat the process for each of the different colors of vinyl, but be sure to protect the vinyl that is already on the shirt with an Iron-On Protective Sheet.
