People do take tshirt DISign requests. You have two choices, find a DISigner who does something you like and ask them to change the name.

Start a brand new thread with a short description of what you want in the title. Good luck Penny

Finished projects

This thread gave me a lot of inspiration and I wanted to share my finished projects. We went in Jan 2012, had a great trip and the shirts and other projects made it special!

My daughter and I worked on these projects together. I printed and ironed; she glittered and trimmed the shirts for my granddaughters. This was my first time trying something like this and it wasn’t hard at all. It did take a lot of work and time but it was so very worth it! We got a lot of compliments on the shirts and autograph books from cast members and characters. And best of all my granddaughters loved them!

FANTASTIC job!!! I especially like the shirts, since I'm in that stage of my projects now for our June trip with DGD and DGS. The ribbon border was a cute touch. JoAnns has their shirts on sale this weekend, so I'm hoping to buy all of mine then. Did you use Amy Mickey's transfers? And I'm really interested in how you 'glittered' the shirts - what did you use? Will they be washable?

I almost hate to see our trip getting close - what will I do with my time after that?? Oh yeah... plan the next one!!

Thank you! It was a first trip for our granddaughters

Yes I used Amy's transfers (so easy to use -we even placed a 2nd order because the 1st set turned out so well).

My daughter used very fine glitter (found 12 in a pack at Hobby Lobby craft store) a tube of fabric glue and small paintbrushes (the ones kids use for paint with water). apply glue with the paintbrush and then sprinkle the glitter over it, wait a minute or so, shake it off and hang them up for the glue to dry. The craft store had a tray with a funnel at the end that we purchased and she was able to put excess glitter back into the jars.

We have washed the shirts and most of them came out fine because we used cold water, gentle cycle and hung them up to dry. A couple of the shirts got put in the dryer by accident and it caused the iron on to wrinkle and the glitter peeled off in a few places (my dh was being helpful and let them get too hot). We sewed on the ribbon and other trims so they held up well in the wash.

Adding Hobby Lobby to my shopping list! Our DGD (we'll be celebrating her 9th b'day) is a girly-girl, so the glitter idea is fabulous. We've all been to WDW many times, but this is the first time we've been able to go with our DD, SIL and the 2 kids. Also the first time that they will be staying on site - they have no idea how wonderful it is to stay close to the magic!

I noticed that you did the 1900 Park Fare dinner - how was it? We've never done that, but that will be our last night and we're doing a surprise celebration for the birthday girl.
Thanks again for sharing your projects. I plan to do the same in June.

krd315 - see what you made me do?????









krd315 - SEE what you made me do - My DH is lucky I didn't put glitter on his....yet.

These are 2 days of shirts - I only have 10 more to go (I make shirts for getting there, and going home so total of 12 this trip)

After seeing your glitter, I am a monster - never even thought about the glitter.....till now.

We really enjoyed the 1900 Park Fare dinner -try to be seated in the main room near the buffet as that is where Cinderella and Prince Charming dance. they will ask the children near by to dance. My 7 y/o DGD is shy and turned down prince charming...lol... I read a lot of mixed reviews about the food, but we did 9 character meals in 6 days, several were buffets and we thought this was one of the better ones.

LOL -Your shirts look awesome! I can't wait to see the rest of your shirts.
It is very addicting. This was our dgd's 1st trip and we set the bar high with all of the shirts, other things we made and several character meals.

Hope you have a great trip!

I'm really tempted to tackle this project for our June trip and do matching shirts for my granddaughter and me; however, I'm a little overwhelmed and concerned about the cost involved as well.

Nana, if you have a JoAnn Fabrics, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby near you, you can get the T-shirts when they're on sale for $2.50. Then all you need is the transfer paper, a printer, and a hot iron! The glitter would add to the cost if you chose to do that. I just got all my shirts today for $2.50 plus used a 20% off President's Day coupon at Michaels .

You'll have adorable, one-of-a-kind shirts that would cost you a fortune at Disney!!

oh, and here's a great thread with detailed instructions:

I agree with k9pal, look for sales and coupons. Michaels and Hobby Lobby have 40% coupons and the shirts for 1/2 off quite often. Also, maybe start with a couple each so you are not overwhelmed. I think the ink and transfers were most of the cost for us.

I agree - get the shirts 4/$10 then use the 40% 50% off to get the transfer paper( I like the ones at AC Moore) and the glitter was $4 plus $3 for the fabric glue(small tubes of glitter and glue) I also used a $10 off $25 for the ink at Office Depot (entertainment book) -

Like pp said, find 1 or 2 designs you REALLY like, and start....You will love it.

My shirts come to around $4 each
