I am in an amazing group on Facebook called Happily Ever After Cricut Crafting, which you can find HERE.  The designers in there make these amazing SVG files for the members to use for personal use only. I love the Star Wars paint splatter design that I found in their collection, which is perfect for Star Wars Day.

You could also create your own Star Wars shirt design by using any Star Wars image from Cricut Design Space and combining it with a fun paint splatter effect like the one I used in this shirt.

May the 4th Be With You

There is a girl in our neighborhood that also loves Star Wars, and I love to make things for her. She gets so happy when I can hand craft something for her. Her Dad brought me this soft green shirt that has sparkles all over it and I knew this Star Wars image would be perfect for it!

The blue marks are a paint splatter effect I added with the Siser Easy Weed vinyl.  I cut the image of Rae image out of Siser Charcoal Grey, which I think worked so much better for this shirt than using black.  It is a softer look.  The silver speckles that you see is the glitter in the shirt.

Since I was using a true SVG file, it was very easy to upload this to Cricut Design Space. When it uploaded, both layers came in at the same time fully colored. That is the beauty of using a true svg file for your projects.

After cutting both of the layers with my Cricut, I weeded them. I pressed the Rae image on to the shirt first, so that I could center it on the shirt. Press at 360 degrees for 25 seconds, and after you remove the carrier sheet make sure to let the vinyl cool. This will help so that this first layer does not become over heated when you press the blue paint splatter layer on.

Star Wars and Cricut Legal Information

I am including this information because people always ask. If you check out the legal information on images for movies like Star Wars, you will find that you have to obtain a commercial use license in order to sell any items with an image like this. Since Disney owns Star Wars, you would have to obtain that license directly from the Disney Corporation.

Siser Vinyl

I prefer to use Siser brand vinyl for my iron on projects. I feel that is the best quality brand of iron on vinyl out there, and it weeds the easiest. For permanent vinyl I like StarCraft vinyl. People have asked me why not Cricut brand, since I use a Cricut machine. Personally I just do not like the way the Cricut vinyl cuts or weeds. I think you should find the brand you love and work with that product. Test things out for yourself. Sometimes it is just a personal preference like how some people would rather have Pepsi products over Coke products.

So once you find your brand of vinyl, where should you buy it? If your favorite brand is sold at the local craft store, then you are lucky in the fact that you can pretty much garantee that you can run to the store and pick up vinyl when ever you need it.

For me, Siser was not always sold in the stores, as it is now, so I had to get it from online retailers. Again, this is where you can either go with your personal preference of stores or go where the best deal is. One day the best price might be at one store, and then the next week it might be from a different retailer. We all do this when we sometimes pick up toliet paper at the grocery store, but then we also get it at Target when it is on sale.

I also love that I can order large rolls or small sheets when ordering Siser online. This can give you a larger variety of choices and allow to to save money on larger orders. To make sure you are getting the best price for your vinyl, make sure to check out my Vinyl Buyers Guide. Because of that, I will always share all of the different resource I am connected to and you can choose which one is best for you!
