DIY your own Pokémon Pikachu shirt with heat transfer vinyl. No cutting machine needed!
I have two little boys, ages 8 and 5, and they are completely and helplessly obsessed with all things Pokémon! Not the new game Pokémon Go, but the old school card game that’s been around since the 90’s. Isn’t it crazy how some things just hang around?
I missed the Pokémon phenomena by a few years so I don’t know much about it. My boys have been educating me. And my oldest just had a birthday and his party is coming up this weekend. Guess the theme? Yep, you guessed it. Pokémon! To celebrate I made him his very own Pikachu shirt, and it cost WAY less than the character tees you buy in store.

In fact, I made a little video to show you just how easy it is to make!
So simple, right? And, as you can see, not cutting machine needed.
You can cut all the shapes with a pair of scissors. I did use a circle cutter for the eyes and cheeks to get them perfectly round. For the eyes, I also used a hole punch to get those little “eye sparkles” that anime characters have.
