How-To {make your own} Mickey TShirt!

{Hi, I'm Amanda & I'm a Disney fanatic!}

For as long as I can remember, I've loved everything about Disney! So, when El & I had kids of our own it was only a matter of time until we planned our first family vacation to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I dare say - Disney is even more F U N when you experience it as an adult. 

Needless to say, our family loves going to Disney World and with 2 races of the year in Daytona, it just makes sense for us to visit WDW while we're so close by. {awesome excuse, I know!} And it didn't take me long to figure out we just HAD to have those cute matching t-shirts! So for my 'first' blog post, I wanted to show you how we made our super cool (inexpensive) 4th of July Mickey t-shirts.

***Thank you, Pinterest!

What you'll need:
TShirt - one that you already have -or- you can find a $1.99 shirt at Michael's 
Heat-n-Bond Ultrahold 
Mickey head silhouette - you can print online or use circular objects around your home to trace onto the Heat-n-Bond paper
Scissors - my Fabric scissors work best
Fabric - I found the Fireworks fabric from a discount fabric store near home

1. Adhere the fabric to the Heat-n-Bond:
        1. place your desired fabric face-down
        2. place the rough side of the 
            Heat-n-Bond down onto your fabric, 
           smooth side facing up to you 
               (rough side of Heat-n-Bond should be on 
                              the back of your desired fabric)

2. Use a hot iron to heat the smooth side of the Heat-n-Bond to your fabric

3. Let the ironed fabric cool

4. Trace the Mickey head onto the smooth side of the Heat-n-Bond

5. Cut out the Mickey head 

6. Peel off the backing paper on the opposite site of the fabric

7. Place your Mickey Head onto the desired area of your TShirt

8. Use the hot iron to heat the Mickey Head onto your garment permanently

... and VOILA!
go enjoy Disney World!

I'm a visual learner so pictures and videos always seem to help. Here's a great video I found on YouTube by Anneorshine! --- DIY A Mickey Mouse Inspired TShirt
