My 4 year old just got to see the original Star Wars for the first time and fell in LOVE with it! Everything is "Star Wars this" or "Star Wars that". We are so excited she shares our love for the films but the only thing is there isn't enough girl stuff in it... At least not by us in clothing. She is getting Yoda Valentine's we found on Pinterest and I decided she needed a shirt! So for her class party I made this Vader themed Valentine's Day shirt!
Ok so I found a picture of Vader and uploaded it to my Cricut in the Design Space web based app. Then I found a balloon image and attached it to the Vader outline and cut it out on card stock. Which I then put onto HeatnBond and attached to this black Valentine's fabric I found in my stash!

(I ended up using black thread for the blanket stitch based on the advise of a friend, which I'm glad I listened to!)
I also used the Cricut to cut out the wording on to iron on material as well.
First I attached Vader and used the blanket stitch on my Singer with black thread to reinforce Vader and ironed on the wording. I decided to put the day and year on the back by the neck because well I didn't want to wasted the left over pink!

She was so excited! She told me it was "fabulous"! But considering she is 4, I just hope she doesn't change her mind about wearing it before the party!

Here is a shot of her Valentines that I found from celesterockwood-jones.typepad.com. With glowsticks for the lightsabers!

Fun and cute! I'd love to see Abby wearing that!

I also love the cards with the glowing sticks and her name written on it. I love kids writing!  Smiley

Everything is woonnndderrfullll! I love the design! You know, for more star wars shirts you can always go into the men's or boy's section, get a big shirt, then convert the shirt into a dress or girl's shirt SUPER easily and fast. You could even add some ruffles on. I've done this for myself for so many shirts: octopuses and johnny cash, star wars, walking dead... hahahah
