Star Wars T-Shirt for Dad

This month's Pinterest challenge was all about making gifts for Father's Day.  I immediately thought of making up a t-shirt for my husband.

We were supposed to head to Disney in February and had to postpone our trip and then it got canceled altogether but my husband had been so excited to see the new Star Wars land at Hollywood Studios so I knew I needed to make him a Star Wars t-shirt to wear whenever we finally make it there.

There are so many great pins and I fully admit that I looked at a few before settling on making up my own.

I had planned to make him a Yoda shirt so I bought the t-shirt in green but the more I searched for Cricut SVG files the more I kept gravitating towards something classic.

I found my image on the Cricut design studio and sized it to fit the shirt front.  I then cut out the mirror image using iron on vinyl.

I weeded out all those pieces I didn't want but had a bit of a problem as the Cricut had cut through the clear backing that usually makes iron projects a snap.

I took my time laying out the design on the t-shirt; making sure to measure so the image was evenly spaced side to side and straight across the chest then I gently pressed it in place using an iron set to the cotton setting.

I think he's going to love it!

  1. I love it!! My Husband isn't a fan but I've bought my adult son many Star Wars Tshirts and pyjamas. I know he'd be thrilled with this fabulous design.

    1. Thank you! My husband is a huge fan and roped 2 of our 3 boys into it too. I like the original 3 but not any of the newer movies.

  2. This t-shirt turned out so good!

  3. May the force be with you! This is a great shirt and I'm sure your husband will love it. My kids would love this too.

  4. Cute shirt! My husband is a big Star Wars fan, too. He would love a custom made Tshirt, too!

  5. My family are such Star Wars fans, these are soooo cute and what a great idea!

  6. What a cool idea to make a star wars t-shirt for one of your hubby's favorites! Let's hope you all will get a chance to go on your fabulous trip real soon!

    1. I sure hope so too; though we have all agreed we don't care to visit the parks as long as mask wearing is required so it may be a little longer wait than we had hoped but that's OK.

  7. This is so cute! And the perfect Father's Day gift!

  8. My husband isn't a huge Star Wars fan, but my boss is and it would be great for Bosses Day.

  9. I love this! And I have a Cricut and a heat press now, so I can make it! I think my son will love this. Pinned.

  10. I have to get myself a Cricut, you made a great gift for hime.

  11. I can think of several people who would love a t shirt like this. Great design!

  12. Very cool! I love the color of the tee shirt you chose, too. I guess I need to start thinking about Father’s Day! Thanks for linking up!
