How to make a Disney Shirt
Have you ever wondered how to make your own Disney Shirts? It’s no secret around here that I love making shirts for my kids. And making Disneyland shirts or Disney World Shirts before a family trip is my absolute favorite! With a big Disney trip coming up, I knew that it was time again to DIY Disney Shirts for the family again.
To make these squad goals DIY Disney shirts you will need:
Cricut Maker (or other cutting machine)
Heat Transfer (or Iron on) vinyl
Cricut Bright Pad (or light box)
Squad Goals Cut Files (download at bottom of post)

Once you have downloaded the free squad goals cut files, upload them to your Cricut cutting machine. The files come in a zip folder, so you’ll have to unzip them before you can upload the svg to Cricut Design Space. Once the file is uploaded and inserted onto your canvas, size the image to fit the size of your t-shirt. As a baseline to work from, I usually size my 4 year olds 6 inches wide. And I usually size the one for me, 9-10 inches wide. Click make it and when you see the design on the canvas, make sure to click mirror image on the left hand side panel under the mat size selection. Once the image is mirrored (because you always mirror the design if you are using heat transfer vinyl), click continue to connect to your cutting machine. Select the material type and the place your iron on vinyl onto your cutting mat, with the shiny side down. Load your mat into the machine and hit the go button.

Once your design is cut, remove the iron on vinyl from the mat. Glitter iron on is hard to see the cut lines, that is when the bright pad comes in handy. It helps show the cut lines so you can weed the vinyl you do not need out of your design. Keeping the design you want on the sticky plastic cover, weed the vinyl as shown below. The image will still be mirrored.
Turn the image over so it now is the correct way and stick it down to your shirt. I sometimes use a ruler to help center my design onto my shirt. Keep the sticky plastic cover on the design while you iron it on. It protects the vinyl and because it’s sticky, it helps keep it in place once you have it where you want. Set the easy press temperature and timer according the chart for the product you are using, and use light pressure as you press down on the shirt. Make sure you are on a stable surface that is heat resistant. Usually a table with a folded towel will do the trick. Once you remove the easy press, you may see a little discoloration on your shirt, that is totally fine and will go away once the shirt is cooled down.
Once you have ironed on the vinyl, peel the plastic sheet off your design. If you noticed a part of your vinyl isn’t sticking, place the plastic sheet back down over the shirt and press it again. Then flip it over and press it again from the back.
I had so much fun creating a princess design for my daughters, that I had to make a Pirates one for my son. He is totally into Pirates right now.
And then I had to make one with the original Disney gang for me!
I don’t know which design is my favorite! I think all of these DIY Disney Shirts are super fun and perfect for the whole family!
