I never thought I would say that, but is good to be home... I don't mean HOME HOME, I mean cold Utah!
Our vacation was GREAT! The kids enjoyed every second of it and the SEVENTY EIGHT degrees felt really good... But is good to be back!
When we decided to go to Disneyland, I started to think of ways that I could save money and still make the kids happy, with something special. Then I came up with the idea of Mickey (for Noah) and Minnie Mouse (for the girls) t-shirts!
I [heart] how they turned out...
Here is what I did;
What you will need:
Mickey Mouse head pattern (I printed out of the internet)
9" Fabric (bought mine at WalMart for 0.25 - will yeld 4 shirts!!)
Plain t-shirts (WalMart again - 3.50 ea.)
Decide how big you want the design. For mine, I printed the Mickey's head on a 8"x11" sheet.
Pin to the fabric and cut out..
Now you have the 'head'. Just lay on top of your shirt and apply the fusible web/interfacing on the WRONG side of the fabric - between the fabric and the shirt.
With a hot iron press the design (this will 'activate' the fusible web and it will glue to the shirt).
Then, zig-zag all around it. You can also sew the edges, but I didn't want to fray when washed, so I zig-zagged!!
