My boys are obsessed with all things MineCraft. They just love it. My oldest especially likes it right now and has requested a MineCraft birthday party (so I'm sure this will not be the last MineCraft post you will see from me...). Well for Christmas this year I made him some a creeper shirt and underwear. Yes underwear. Why underwear?
Here's why. Here is his list for Santa. What kid wants underwear and socks for Christmas? Mine :). Sadly he did not get an iPhone or diamond ring...
I looked online and didn't see any MineCraft underwear, so I made him some. It was really easy to do too. Using my Silhouette studio, I bought a grid image and then deleted the squares where the eyes and mouth are. Then I cut it out. Instead of peeling off the outside of the vinyl, I took out the squares making a stencil for the paint.
Using transfer paper, I put the vinyl onto the fabric.
I then used some fabric paint and painted the squares.
Here it is all painted.
I took off the vinyl and then let it dry. After about 24 hours I ironed the paint to set it in.
Since he really can't show off his underwear, I made him a shirt too using the same technique. I really like how the green paint looks on the black.
I was planning on making a Steve using the same technique. Maybe I'll do it for his birthday.
I would love it if you followed along.
