Gotta Catch ‘Em All! Pokemon Pocket T-shirts

Yes, yes, our third of three (do we get a special trophy?) Pokemon birthday parties is in the planning stages. I try to give our guests one special party favor that has more lasting power than a bunch of smaller items.

I’ll admit I was struggling a bit with how to make something Pokemon-themed that would still appeal to my “artistic” sensibilities, and now I am pleased to say, these little shirts are it! Pokemon is short for “pocket monster,” so how perfect to make t-shirts with a little monster peeking out from the pocket!

To make our shirts, I used

Here’s how it went:

  • Prewash your shirts and fabric
  • Iron Heat’n Bond onto back of Pokemon fabric
  • (Turn on HGTV while you) cut out individual Pokemon. (At least, that’s how I did it!)
  • Choose the Pokemon for each shirt and cut off the tails, if the design allows
  • Iron the Pokemon into place on the shirt
  • Add dimensional fabric paint or stitching to secure the edges.
  • Cut out a pocket from fabric and hem the top
  • Sew the pocket in place

Last step, soak in the cuteness!Adorable DIY Pokemon pocket T-shirts! | Jewels at Home
