Are you Lego-ed out yet? I hope not, because there’s still more Lego goodness coming your way over the next week as we count down to the Little Crafter’s birthday!
Today, I get to share with you one of my favorite things for this party…our family t-shirts!
A few weeks ago, Amy from Sew Incredibly Crazy shared a tutorial for Lego minifigure shirts at the Shine on Fridays party. I immediately pinned them, and knew I’d be making some for us…which I did!
It all started out with me making one for LC…then as soon as hubs and I saw it, we knew we had to get in on the action too. Little Crafter picked out the colors for us; red, blue, and purple, which are his three favorites. They’re super simple to make.
First, I found a minifigure head template online and printed it out in three different sizes. Then, I ironed Heat-n-Bond Lite onto yellow fabric, cut out the three heads, peeled off the backing, and ironed them onto the shirts. Then I did a zig zag machine stitch around the whole shape…but if you don’t want to sew, you can just use Heat-n-Bond extra hold. Finally, I used fabric paint to add the face details. If you want a step by step tutorial with photos of each step, visit Sew Incredibly Crazy!
I think the most fun part was that each family member got to choose his or her own Lego face.
LC went for the simple, standard, old-school Lego man.
I went for Lady Lego.
I absolutely love how they turned out! They were pretty easy to do, and super-cheap! The shirts cost less than $5 a piece at Michaels, and I already had the fabric, thread, and paints! Three shirts for less than $15…I’ll take it!
Which one is your fave? Happy Crafting!
