Saturday is really the only day we ever get a chance to do any crafts at the M4P HQ.  So if, like us, you are looking for an easy fun project for tomorrow, here is the downloadable pattern and instructions on how to make the M4P C-3PO Tshirt.

If you want to make more shirts, we can help there too.  So far we have also posted how to make the M4P Stormtrooper shirt and Darth Maul shirt. And we will post several more patterns (Yoda, AT-AT and R2D2) in the next month or so.

Now, you might ask what project WE are doing this weekend, since our shirts are already done. Per the little guy’s (our son who can not say “S” yet) request, we are going to make “Tar wars crayons.”  Check back to see how that went!

Of course, as always, we kindly ask you not to make and sell these.  A, because Lucas Film owns the rights to all characters, and B, because we made the designs and it would be unfair for you to make money off them when we are giving them to you for free.

Update: Here are our Star Wars character stencil/Silhouette Cameo patterns:
Party Yoda Pattern
Party C-3PO Pattern
Party Darth Maul Pattern
Party AT-AT Pattern
Party Stormtrooper Pattern
Party R2-D2 Pattern
Party BB-8 Pattern

We also have a Christmas versions of these patterns:

Christmas Darth Maul Pattern
Christmas AT-AT Pattern
Christmas R2-D2 Pattern
Christmas Stormtrooper Pattern

Needed:

How To:

  1. Down-load the pattern below.
  2. Load pdf file on computer, and reverse the image.
  3. Cut out on Cameo.  (There are lots and lots of great You Tube tutorials on how to use your Cameo to cut out vinyl, so I will not get into how to use the machine here.)  OR print out on printer, place on vinyl and cut through both paper and vinyl layers by hand (NOT the clear plastic layer).
  4. Weed the vinyl sheet (get rid of all the unwanted little pieces), I find an X-acto knife is best for this.
  5. Close cut the shapes, so there is just a little bit of the sticky clear plastic around each piece.
  6. Lay them out (sticky side down) on the T-shirt, cover with cotton fabric, and iron for about a minute (on cotton setting, with no steam).
  7. Carefully peel the clear plastic off.
  8. Let cool for a while.

Supplies:

Tips:

So far washing the shirts have not been a problem.  I turn them inside out and wash in cold delicate, and dry on a flat surface.

Some of the heat transfer material works better than others.  So far I have only used the Silhouette brand, but there still seems to be a big difference from color to color (or maybe it is between the manufacturing batches). So far my black transfer material was really hard to work with – I had to iron for about 10 minutes to get it to stick.  All others were really easy to use.
