Introduction: Stormtrooper Cut-Out Shirt

About: Journalism and English student with a penchant for crafting. You can probably find me locked in my room, making something.

Over the last while, one of the most popular crafts floating around the internet has been the skull cut-out shirt, such as this one by scoochmaroo. It's appeared on craft site after craft site, Pinterest board after Pinterest board, and I decided to give it a new, nerdy twist - converting the skull into a Stormtrooper.

Step 1: Print Your Template

Print out the template you want to use. I printed mine on two pieces of paper and sellotaped them together. For this kind of project, I found that some pumpkin carving patterns are perfect, so that's where I found this pattern (pattern does not belong to me).

Step 2: Laminate the Template

Cut the template to A4 size if necessary, and laminate it. This step is optional, but helps to make a durable stencil that holds its shape well. Cut out the parts of the template that will be cut out on the shirt.

Step 3: Trace Your Template

Tape your laminated cut-out template onto your shirt, and trace the cut-out areas with a tailor's pen.

Step 4: Cut Out the Template

Cut out the spaces inside the traced gaps, creating your Stormtrooper cut-out design.

    I like what you did. I would also paint in the sections that you left to keep the pattern straight. Here is a picture of one I did using fabric paint. For the back I made a copy of a comic book cover and printed it on T-Shirt transfer paper

    Will the cuts in the fabric begin to droop after a few washes?

    Thank you for the kind words! :) It's a really fun way to revamp a boring old shirt.
