Lego Party: The Shirts

 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.

Hubby opted for Mr. Scruffy.

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!

  1. I think my favorite is the scruffy beard one. My hubs is always sporting a scruffy beard (which he claims is because that’s the style but I think is because he forgets to shave most days) so that one’s perfect! Thanks for sharing at The Fun In Functional!
