Star Wars Lego Specimen T-shirt

Sometimes, I'm just in the mood to watch Star Wars {old Star Wars, of course. We won't talk about the new Star Wars.}  Every once in a while I wanna sit down and relax while I watch a little old school Star Wars action.  Lines like, "I've got a bad feeling about this." "That's no moon; that's a space station." and  "You're such a scruffy nerf herder!" are just too good to pass up.  :)  And now you know that I am weird.

Anyway, I've got a cute little nephew who told me that Star Wars is his favorite {then Harry Potter, then Tron.  Superman doesn't love Harry Potter and I don't even know what the heck Tron is.}

So I thought we'd do a little Star Wars tee for his birthday.  I was inspired by Cheri from I Am Momma Hear Me Roar's super cute Lego Star Wars tee that she made and I used her printable found here
I couldn't get the storm Trooper to look like a storm Trooper when I cut it, so I just went with Yoda and Darth Vader.  I originally just painted one Darth out of laziness and Lou told me he looked really lonely and that he "needed some friends, Mom."  So I made an army of Darth Vader's....and one Yoda.  I'm not really sure of the significance of that, but I thought it turned out fun and our nephew seemed to like it.
It was also my first try at freezer paper stenciling {I know that's so five years ago, but I'm slowly  overcoming my lack-of-creativity fears, remember?} and I thought it was super fun and relatively easy.  Cutting eight Darth's with an exacto knife is not ideal, but neither is spending the big bucks on a Sillhouette so I'm cool with it.
And that's all.  Have a great day!

.......and may the force be with you.  {Sorry.  Just couldn't resist.}
