Do you have someone in your home that is a lover of all things Star Wars? If so then this Storm Trooper T-Shirt will be the perfect project for you! My son asked me to make him a Storm Trooper T-Shirt for an upcoming Disneyland trip we are going on. I made him and my husband one. I was so excited to make this for them.
Storm Trooper T-Shirt

Here is what you will need:
- White T-Shirt
- Vinyl Cutting maching (I used my Cricut)
- Black Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Storm Trooper SVG Image
You can google storm trooper SVG images and several will come up. Save the file to your computer and use it on your cutting machine. There are many Tutorials outs there on how to use SVG images. At first I wasn’t sure how and I googled it and within minutes I was cutting out my Storm Trooper. The image I used came from The Craft Chop – She gives you the option of donating to her site (which I did) for using her SVG file. Cut the image on Black Heat Transfer Vinyl. When cutting be sure to put the shiny side of the vinyl down (at least that is how it works with my Cricut)
Pic the negative pieces off your vinyl. There will be the Storm Trooper mask and then also the eyes and mouth piece. I first put the main head/mask piece on the shirt.
Have your Iron turned on and ready to go on a medium to medium high setting. I cover the image with another piece of cloth and iron over everything for about 10 seconds. I then let it cool off and do it again. However, the second time around I go a bit slower and stay over each section for about 10 seconds. Cool off the fabric and gently remove the plastic backing. While you are removing it if you come to a section that is not adhered onto your shirt just iron it some more until it is ready.
Then add your eyes and mouth pieces to the shirt and repeat the ironing process.
Now you have a fun Storm Trooper T-Shirt that the Star Wars fans in your family will love! Mine turned out perfect and was so easy to make. My son just loves it!
I made my husband one as well. However, his was on a darker shirt – so for his I also needed to cut out an extra white piece in white heat transfer vinyl. Here is a picture of his shirt – I will have to get a final picture of his for you in a bit.
Now that I have started making shirts for the kids they keep asking for more designs and I am loving it!
