Easy DIY Minecraft Steve Shirt


My boys love to play Minecraft.  And it's one video game that I don't mind them playing because it really forces them to create and use their imagination.  I make my kids birthday shirts every year and this year my oldest wanted me to make him a Minecraft shirt.  Since I already made him a creeper, I thought it would be fun to make a Steve one.

This is how I made it:
Using my Silhouette, I cut out a square grid out of vinyl.  I also cut out the word nine.  I just took the grid and deleted some of the squares to make the word.

Using transfer paper, I put the vinyl onto the shirt.  Make sure you have something inside the shirt, so the paint doesn't leak to the back.

Using some washi tape, I taped off the place different shapes of his face.  Then I painted the squares using fabric paint.

For the browns, I just mixed a cream and a dark brown together and painted it very randomly.

I let the paint dry and then I pulled off the vinyl. I then ironed it for a couple seconds.

And that's it!  Super easy and fun!
