When we first started planning our Disney trip a few years ago, I knew I wanted to make Disney t-shirts for the kids to wear but had no idea where to start. Having no experience with a sewing machine or needle and thread, my options were kind of limited. After scouring the aisles of Hobby Lobby (coupons in hand) and using a little creativity, I finally got the shirts completed just in time for our trip.
If you're a non-sewing novice like me, you can make them in no time!
All you need is:
- Plain t-shirts, washed and dried
- Felt squares (one per shirt)
- Mickey template (printed from the internet and sized accordingly)
- Craft scissors
- Fabric glue
- Iron-on accessories (mustaches, princess crowns, etc.)
1. Using scissors, cut out the Mickey template on paper.
2. Pin template directly to felt square all along the edge. Cut felt around the Mickey pattern pinned into place.
3. Remove pins and glue felt Mickey ears onto shirt using fabric glue. Let dry overnight.
4. Put iron-on accessories in place and heat with iron. Use fabric glue for any iron-on parts that lift up. (Some iron-ons won't adhere completely to the felt, but fabric glue seemed to work just fine.)
You can also add kid's names on the back or underneath. I love how they turned out - so easy too!
(Fabric paint optional.)
Perfect for birthdays, your next trip to Disney...or whatever!
