At long last, here is the final pattern of our popular May the Fourth be with You Party T-shirt series. You can of course use the downloadable patterns for a lot of other things too. I have an etched glass tumbler set in the works, as well as silkscreened place mats. Let us know what you are using them for. Send pictures – we would love to post them on our blog!
As we mentioned when we posted the Christmas AT-AT, we try to be really careful with all copyrights here at M4P. The original AT-AT design art was created by Jory Raphael. It is available to download free for personal use (or professional use if you purchase), but even though it is available for free, we don’t want to share a live version of his artwork on our site… we want Jory to get both credit and the “hits”! So you’ll need to go to iconfinder.com and download it there. Then you can import it into our pattern. I left a light grey screened template, so you’ll know exactly how it fits together.
Promise you check the rest of Jory’s Star Wars set out too, there are some really nice pieces there!
As always, we ask you not to make and sell these. A, because LucasFilm Ltd. and Disney 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. We also we want to remind you that we should get credit when the patterns are used. So, if you show your work using our designs anywhere (online as well), put a “Pattern © Anette Nam Design” and link to “Maythefourthbewithyouparty.com” somewhere close by. THANK YOU!

- Load pdf file on computer, and reverse the image.
- 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).
- Weed the vinyl sheet (get rid of all the unwanted little pieces), I find an X-acto knife is best for this.
- Close cut the shapes, so there is just a little bit of the sticky clear plastic around each piece.
- 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).
- Carefully peel the clear plastic off.
- Let cool for a while.
