Rebel-Worthy Tees + FREE Download :: Star Wars Birthday Party

Aug 23, 2018

I always feel like the best way to round out a themed party is to dress up along with it.  We’ve been wearing themed birthday party outfits since we started celebrating birthdays with Louis, and it’s been super fun to come up with what to put on our threesome.  This year was no exception, of course.

Originally, Louis wanted a Darth Vader something….but then decided that if the invitation stated he was a “Jedi Master”, that he’d better dress accordingly.  With that, we decided to go for a little hat tip to America’s favorite Jedi: Luke Skywalker.

It’s important to not overdo it with what Louis wears during parties.  Kiddo never stops running around with this friends for even a second, so you can dress him in a costume-costume.  But giving him a top to wear totally works.  I took the Captain Mack Cardigan pattern, added a slightly thicker neck binding than it called for, and then took some nylon strapping and made him a belt.  Bingo-bango, we’ve got a Jedi on our hands now!

For Bennett, I grabbed my favorite basic tee pattern for him, and then designed him a Rebel Alliance Pilot-esque tee.  (You can find the Silhouette / Cricut files to download for yourself at the bottom of this post!)

A quick cut with my Silhouette in white and black HTV and an even quicker heat press of the design, and he’s got a rebel worthy tee to wear for the day.  Though, I have a feeling Bennett will be wearing this more than just for the party.  We like to dress in our nerdy tees all the time in this family.

As for my top, I couldn’t help but create another droid peplum to wear around.  Remember my BB-8 inspired version from a couple years ago??  It’s one of my favorite nerdy tops I’ve made for myself, and I felt like I needed to give some love to the original sassy character.  Similar concept from before, just some different appliqued pieces and I’ve got an R2-D2 top to wear whenever I want now.  Yay me!

In my head, I was going to do most of the work with HTV.  Except that I didn’t have any blue at home…so I ended up having to cut and stitch a bunch of royal fabric bits onto the bodice and skirt pieces to make this.  It wasn’t the worst, but it certainly was the longest process of all three outfits.  Worth it.

**This design is for personal use only.  I hope you share it with me if you make something!  I love seeing my designs in use.  And if you’re interested in seeing what else I’ve got up my sleeve for Silhouette/Cricut designs, head over to Thread & Grain to check them out!)
