Disney Look for Less – Mickey Jedi t-shirt tutorial

Standard

May the fourth be with you!  To celebrate Star Wars day (May 4th, naturally!), we whipped up a quick little Jedi Mickey t-shirt for Isabella.

The total cost for this t-shirt was $0.  Here’s how we did it.  The shirt pattern is the Oliver & S Field Trip Raglan pattern which I already own and use all the time.  The fabric came from 2 t-shirts that had seen better days.

First, I drew a Jedi Mickey Mouse.  Right click on the image below and print it out  if you want to use it to make one for your little Jedi.

Trace it on to the non-shiny side of a piece of freezer paper.  Then iron the shiny side of the  freezer paper onto the back side of the front of the t-shirt.  This stabilizes the fabric for painting and gives you a pattern to fill in with paint.

I mixed acrylic paint with fabric medium which can be purchased at any craft store.   The fabric medium turns the acrylic paint into a washable, non-cracking paint for fabric.

Then, it is simply a matter of filling in the image with paint.  Kind of like paint-by-numbers!

If you aren’t using a ready-made t-shirt, all that’s left to do is finish stitching your shirt together, and with this pattern, that only takes a matter of a few minutes.
