Light saber t-shirts

Rikki Tikki Tavi gave me a few new T-shirts to embellish for the brat nephews. Knowing they are way into Star Wars these days,

  • I found a super easy tutorial for drawing light sabers HERE at DragoArt.
  • Traced the light beam onto a smaller paper backed piece of WonderUnder
  • Ironed the WonderUnder to reverse side of green cotton and yellow silk fabric scraps.
  • Traced light saber hilt separately onto that cool reflective fabric sample from Ernest.
  • Ironed fusible to fabrics.
  • Carefully trimmed fabric, using the previously traced lines.
  • Peeled off paper backing from fused fabric.
  • Ironed the 2 part light saber to shirts.
  • Machine stitched the light saber beam in matching thread.
  • Also on sewing machine, outlined the saber hilt with black thread for a subtle detail.

Heck, at this point,
I'm just hoping
the light sabers aren't
mistaken for dildoes.
