Nintendo Game Controller Evolution Shirt DIY
We were invited to a fun Nintendo blogging event and we needed some geek-tastic shirts to wear.  The event was amazing for all of us, but geared for kids in this guys age range, so he super loved it.  We ended up with loads of swag and great food.  Here's the shirt I wore, my oldest son wore and my daughter wore.
Supplies received and used for post from Cricut and Nintendo with Cricut affiliate links.
You will need:
T-Shirt
Cricut EasyPress
Cricut 
EasyPress Mat

~
My son requested the evolution of the game controller...we found an image and re-worked it for a higher resolution...it's at the end of the post.
Upload the image at the end of this post into Cricut Design Space™ and reverse the image to cut iron-on vinyl.  Place your iron-on on the mat with the plastic side down.  Then cut the image.
Weed the excess vinyl.  This image is small so it's a little tedious.
Heat up the EasyPress to 305*
Place the shirt on the EasyPress Mat, then heat up the shirt with the EasyPress for 5-10 seconds.
Place the vinyl plastic side up on the warm shirt.
Then place the EasyPress on the vinyl and time it for 30 seconds.  Turn the shirt over and heat the backside for 10 seconds, then let it cool completely.
Peel back the plastic by rolling it back over itself.
Now it's ready to wear!  I love the image.
So I found the image online and re-drew it to make it high resolution.  Right click to save, personal use only.  Not my original image.

Mario Brothers 8-Bit 1-Up Mushroom Shirt DIY
One of my all time favorite Nintendo games is Mario Brothers.  I've gotta say, I love #2 the most!  But #3 is a close contender.  This 1-up mushroom is fun for everyone that sees it.  Nearly everyone instantly recognizes it!  We were lucky enough to attend a Nintendo event, so I had to make shirts for everyone to wear!  Check out my shirt here and my son's Link shirt here...more to come.  This post features and reviews goods I received from Nintendo and Cricut, with Cricut affiliate links.

For the mushroom shirt you will need:
Iron on Vinyl in black, green and white
Pink Hoodie
Cricut EasyPress
Cricut 
EasyPress Mat

Heat up your EasyPress and cut your Iron-on Vinyl.  Remember to mirror the images and place the vinyl on the mat with the plastic protective surface down on the sticky part.  Upload the image at the end of this post into Cricut Design Space™ and reverse the image before cutting.
Weed the excess vinyl.
Warm up the shirt for 5-10 seconds with the EasyPress and then place the white image on the shirt with the plastic side up.
Place the EasyPress on the vinyl and heat at 305* for 30 seconds.
Let it cool and peel the plastic off by rolling it back over itself.
Next, place the black outline on the white vinyl.  Line it up perfectly.
Repeat the heating process with the EasyPress.
Let it cool and remove the plastic.  Then place the green pattern on the cap of the mushroom.
Cover with Cricut's Iron-On Protective Sheet to protect the vinyl that is no longer protected.
Place the EasyPress on top and heat for 30 seconds.
Let cool and peel off the plastic.  Now you have a conversation worthy hoodie to wear to the next party!
Check out all this amazing swag from Nintendo!  My kids LOVE my new 2DSXL...yes, it's mine.

 Legend of Zelda's It's dangerous to go alone 8-bit Link Shirt DIY
Legend of Zelda is one of my favorite games of my childhood.  Maybe because the Nintendo cartridge was GOLD and looked so special...or maybe because of the amazing 8-bit graphics.  I loved it, in fact, my son and I played the original game together this year when he was sick.  We beat the both quest phases...with some map help from Google.  How did we do it when we were young?  I received products from Cricut and Nintendo that I feature in this post.  Cricut Affiliate links included.
I was lucky enough to attend a Nintendo event for local bloggers last week and had to make everyone a shirt to wear for the event.  Check out my shirt here.  Nintendo showed us the newest handheld device, the 2DSXL and gave me one at the end of the night...it's mine, but I share with my kids.

So let's make the shirt that made it all happen:
You will need:
Iron on Vinyl in Black, Brown, Green and White
T-Shirt
Cricut EasyPress
Cricut 
EasyPress Mat
Upload the image at the end of this post into Cricut Design Space™ and reverse the image to cut iron-on vinyl.  Place your iron-on on the mat with the plastic side down.  Then cut the image.
Weed the excess vinyl and prepare your shirt by heating it up with the EasyPress for 5-10 seconds.  Then place the brown Link on the center of the shirt.
This is a big image and needs to be heated in 2 parts.  305* for 25 seconds.
Let the vinyl cool and remove the plastic cover.  Then place the white vinyl for the face in place.
Cover with the  Cricut's Iron-On Protective Sheet and EasyPress again.
Cool, remove plastic by peeling it back over itself.

Next, place the green vinyl in place.
Cover with Cricut's Iron-On Protective Sheet and EasyPress again.
Let it cool and add the text under the image.
Cover with  Cricut's Iron-On Protective Sheet and EasyPress again.
Let the vinyl cool, remove all the plastic covering and it is ready to debut on an epic adventure!  My son got loads of attention at the Nintendo party because of this shirt...mostly because it was florescent yellow--but still.
