Clone Trooper T-Shirt

Here’s a birthday gift for one of my son’s new buddies and fellow Star Wars fanatic. I scanned a page from one of my son’s coloring books and used Photoshop to get rid of the background and color in some areas, and then used my Silhouette machine to cut the shape out of flocked heat-transfer material. ¬†Twice, actually, since the first time, the piece of transfer material shifted when it was 90 percent done cutting and then got stuck in the machine. That obviously was a bit frustrating. And it did take some time to peel off all the parts that weren’t part of the design. But the end result is pretty impressive (though I’m not crazy about giving a child a shirt featuring a large weapon. I tried to steer my son toward Ewoks or R2D2, but he insisted I make a Clone Trooper shirt). I also added the birthday boy’s name and “Seven Years” instead of “Star Wars,” and we picked up a Star Wars book to go with it.

 

Come back Monday for my Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaway!
