DIY Star Wars Personalized T-shirt for Start Wars Birthday Boy


As part of my son's present I thought I would make him a personalized Star Wars T-Shirt. I have been wanting to try this out for a while, but never had a good reason to. I knew that Silhouette sold heat transfer vinyl, but living in Canada there are not very many places that carry Silhouette products, so I turned to Micheals. I had seen some iron-on printer transfer sheets there before so I went there this past weekend with a 50% off coupon and bought a package.

I've been to Dollar Store so often recently for all the party supplies and look at what I found there! A Fruit of the Loom T-shirt... Only $2!

I then began designing the T-shirt logo on the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition. I didn't have Star Wars font but I found the font for free here! You don't need the Silhouette to make this T-shirt but I wanted the Cameo to cut around the edges for me.

Here is what it looked like on-screen before I sent it to the printer. To use these transfer sheets you must use an inkjet printer, NOT laser printer! I learned that the hard way... we had to pull out our old printer for this.

After it was printed, I then cut out the images with the Cameo.

On the back of the T-Shirt, I ironed on the little Star Wars logo (centered under the neckline).

Finally, I placed the image on the front of the T-shirt and followed the directions on the transfer package. Seconds later the image fused and now I have a T-shirt that my son is surely going to love! Next time you see this shirt it will be finished and on my son :)

Thanks for coming by!
