DIY Personalized Disney Shirts

My daughter was invited by her best friend to go with her to Disneyland for her friend’s birthday this year.  I wanted to do something to make the day extra special for them and decided that personalized Disney shirts would be perfect.  They were a breeze to make and I am in love with how adorable they turned out!  I was able to make a shirt for my daughter, her best friend, and her friend’s mom all in about 15 minutes.  Thank goodness they were so quick and easy to make because I had been out of town on a business trip and had to make them the night before her birthday celebration.  Keep reading for the easy to follow directions to make your own Personalized Disney Shirts.

Let’s Make It!

  1. It’s always a good idea to pre-wash your shirt (but truthfully, I’m a busy mom and didn’t do this!  lol.  It was fine)

2. If you have a Cricut: Access + Personalize the Design.  (I’m sharing my Cricut Craft Room Project File with you to make this even easier!)  Be sure to place your HTV plastic side down on your mat.  Cut and weed your design.

3. If you don’t have a Cricut, you can Order your personalized design from my Etsy shop.

4. Preheat your iron to it’s hottest setting

5. Layout your design on your shirt.

6. Remove the name and bow layer and set them to the side.Begin with the Mickey layer

7. Begin with the Mickey layer and press the design for 10-15 seconds.

8. Allow the plastic backing to cool before removing.

9. Place the bow layer where you would like it.  VERY IMPORTANT – Be sure to use a pressing cloth for this layer to avoid placing the iron directly on the Mickey layer.

10. Repeat the process with the name layer.

And that’s it!  The entire process should only take you about 10 – 15 minutes (unless you’re still learning how to use your Cricut machine – then give yourself a little bit of extra time).  You can have these adorable personalized Mickey shirts for your trip to one of the parks, or just because they are so darn cute!

3 Quick (and really simple) Back to School Cricut Projects

3 Quick (and really simple) Back to School Cricut Projects

School starts for my kiddos tomorrow so nothing like a quick last minute project to send them off in style, right?  This project was extremely easy and makes me feel like SuperMom!


For the first project, I personalized their lunch pails and my son’s backpack.  I used Heat Transfer Vinyl in Red Glitter and in Silver Glitter.  I just cut out my kids names with my Criciut Explore and ironed them on to their lunch pails and the backpack

(word of caution – the material tends to melt easily so press for as little time as possible, use a pressing cloth, and move your iron frequently).

It took minutes and I think it turned out great.  There won’t be any question who’s bags these are!

As a quick safety note – I want to mention that I put my son’s name on the back of his backpack so it will be up against his back while he’s wearing it.  The last thing I would want is some stranger seeing his name on his backpack and using it against him!

The second project was equally quick.  My daughter needed an index card box and I used Cricut Vinyl and cut our her name and a picture of a globe.  I highly recommend using transfer tape to make the process significantly easier.  I’m sure she’ll have the best-dressed box in class.


Hope you enjoyed!!
