Last week I shared how I made some easy and adorable Minnie Mouse skirts for my girls for our last Disney trip. I didn’t forget about my son though. I did make him a shirt so he would be included in all the fun! This has got to be the easiest Mickey Mouse shirt tutorial ever!
The first thing I did was open up my silhouette design studio program and design the Mickey Mouse heads. I was going to make one for the girls also so I had 3 different sizes of Mickey head. I used a 6 inch one for my son, 5 inch for my 4 year old daughter and a 4 inch Mickey for my baby. Once I had them designed and ready to cut, I loaded my heat transfer vinyl into my silhouette cameo and started the cut.
If you need more detailed instructions on how to use and cut heat transfer vinyl, you can see those instructions on the Easter t-shirt tutorial.
Once my vinyl was cut, I removed the extra vinyl so that all that was left on the plastic were the Mickey heads.
I just bought plain white t-shirts from Walmart for about $3 each.
I cut the Mickey heads apart and then laid it down onto the shirt where I wanted it. I’m not a measurer when it comes to these types of projects. I’m an eyeballer. I just lay it down and adjust it until I like the look. You can (kind of) see that I put the protective plastic layer on the top side. You will iron over the plastic layer. Use a hot iron with the steam off and push down firmly as you iron over the Mickey head.
Slowly peel the plastic cover off once you’ve ironed down the Mickey. If the edges of the vinyl try and come up as you removed the plastic, lay the plastic back down and iron it again.
You can leave them simply as Mickey Mouse or I made a bow out of the same fabric I used for my Minnie Mouse skirts and made a bow for the girls shirts.
I used a safety pin and pinned the bows right at the top of Mickey head.
They turned out so cute! And the adorable models don’t hurt their appeal either!
These shirts are really quick and simple to make. The thing that took the longest on these shirts was making the bows for the girls shirts.
Are you Disney fans too? I may go a little over board for our family trips, but I love the memories!
If you don’t have iron on vinyl, here is another option to make Disney t-shirts with printed heat transfer.
Are you planning a trip to Disneyland? I would love to make it there for the 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration. Use code LIZONCALL to save on your vacation package!
