I have one more KCWC outfit after this tee, almost done with the posts for that, I had so much fun!
OK, so this tee is definitely a wish-I’d-sewn-it-for-myself type of project! Rory and I are huge Star Wars fans, but not having any boys is cramping his style. Or so he thinks. I’m doing my best to indoctrinate our girly girls about SW mythology, by having them memorize read this awesome book,(affiliate link) so they know a lot of the characters, and of course, Sadie loves Princess Leia, having dressed as her for Halloween a few years back. I don’t generally like tees with things written on them, but I can make an exception for awesome Star Wars ones. (no-brainer)
So when I saw this awesome tee, I had to do my own version with the heroine of the story! I used Transfer Artist Paper (TAP) (affiliate link) which is fantastic stuff. You can basically color, print, write whatever you want to it, then transfer it with your iron to the fabric. The results are amazing! Just make sure you mirror image your words before printing…don’t ask me how I know or how I ruined a whole page once….grr. Anyways, I love playing around with it and have been meaning to post about the things I’ve made with it.
I found an image online of Leia and edited it in Lightroom to be a bit more contrast-y, and then used a free Star Wars font for the wordage. (truth, I’ve had it on my computer for years) I do wish I’d lowered the words a half inch, but oh well! What’s done is done!
She was getting into having a big tall ponytail to swing around, as you can tell! She’s loving all the high buns and ponys we’ve been doing lately! I should’ve put her in Leia buns for the shoot, as Kristin pointed out on Instagram! Missed opportunity! darn. (catch all my latest happenings there: username is craftinessisnotoptional)
I made the shirt using my self drafted cap sleeve pattern-it fits her really well. Used some white interlock from Joanns.
Aaaand….another simple cap sleeved tee, in this awesome mustard striped fabric from Girl Charlee.
