DIY Lego Movie T-Shirts

28 Flares 28 Flares ×

If there is one thing I can tell you for certain…finding Lego Movie stuff is near impossible. I cannot find a T-shirt instore, a poster, and barely even a Lego set. The Lego Movie stuff has been picked over, and there is just nothing left.  You would think that with the release of the DVD everyone would be well stocked up, but it my town that jut isn’t the case.  So since I cannot find a t-shirt for my kids, we decided to make them!

I picked up a package of 5 white T-shirts and a package of Avery Iron On Printable Paper.  Then I went to The Lego Movie website and downloaded the Sticker Images, but there are lots of different places you can get images from on the Lego website.  Look around for some great ones, and check out The Lego Movie Summer Camp Post Card Maker for Bigger Images.  They would make a fantastic graphic t-shirt.

Hint:  If you’re savvy with your editing program, you can cut and paste the images around to fill up the entire sheet of paper, and not waste any of it. The paper costs about $1.25/sheet.  I use a free download called Paint.net to edit all my images.

How To Make Your Own Lego Movie T-Shirts

Supplies:

  • T-Shirts (I used white, but black would be great too.  Orange would be fantastic if you can find it!)
  • Iron On Transfer Paper
  • Computer & Printer well stocked with Ink
  • Iron
  • Towel
  • Scissors

Steps:

1. Preshrink your T-shirts.  Wash, dry and iron them so they are ready to go.

2. Print your images….REMEMBER TO INVERT ANY IMAGES WITH WORDS…if not, the words will appear backwards on your t-shirt.

3. Cut out your images and place them where you would like them to appear on the t-shirt

4. Iron them on according to the package directions from your transfer paper. READ THE DIRECTIONS – Most will tell you not to use an ironing board, but to do it over a towel on a hard, flat surface.  And how long to hold the iron down on the transfer.

5. Peel off the paper, carefully.  I find it easier to peel off when they’re still hot, but again.  Follow the directions of the transfers you buy.

Now you have your very own Lego Movie T-Shirts!
