Your shirts turned out great!!! I agree all the designers here are amazing. How did you get the smaller image up in the corner of your shirts? (Example the poppy)

I printed like a picture. And I chose to print it as a 4x6.
It you print it like a picture there are alot of options to choose from.
On the poppy ones i printed one on one side and then let it set for a few mins and then printed the other on the other side of the transfer paper...as to not to waste it.
You can also insert pictures into Microsoft word and play with the sizes and even customize things..(ie..add text). I have done this with many of the shirts you see with the smaller image on the front. I put many of them on the same Microsoft word document so i could maximize the number of images on one sheet (again as to not waste transfer paper.) I am on my third package of 20 (from amymickey.com)

lanyards

I ordered Ribbon from my suppliers that had the designs we liked.
I ordered them in 1inch width. Then ordered the clasps off eBay.
Measured the amount of ribbon needed for each person i.e.: kids lanyards are typically 18inches long so I needed 36 inches for each of their lanyards.
My father is a very tall man so I made his longer than ours. I then sealed the edges of the ribbon(easy to do with a lighter) then I put the two ends together...one on top of the other, print side up, so the lanyard will lay correctly. Then put on the clasp folded the ribbon under and sewed the fabric together (which holds the clasp on). Make sure print side is up when sewing so that you have the better stich side facing out.
ITs that easy and a lot cheaper than ordering/buying Disney lanyards.

Yes, these disigns are from the different disigners on this forum. I looked through so many of their photobuckets and design threads. Those that I wanted customized I requested on their design threads.
Others I found on their photobuckets didn't need to be personalized. I liked them as is and just downloaded them on to my computer and printed them on iron on transfer paper from Amy_mickey (amymickey.com).
It was that simple.
There is a sticky at the top of this forum that lists the disigners and what they specialize in. Go take a look and see what you like.
Most of my personalized items are from absolutemandy and marnemouse.
However rustmanfan has a ton of designs that I printed as is.
I am sure I found other items on various disigners photobuckets so I apologize for any disigners name that isn't here but there are so many...lol
I have also found things right off the internet that I loved and printed on the transfers myself.

I've decided I'm not a Disney fan as everyone thinks I am - No, I'm a Disney Geek!

I have a blog. I've posted a little. If people look I might be prompted to do more...

Yes they do. My mom says I am Disney crazy.
She said what I am doing for my girls first time to Disney puts her to shame from my first time when I was 9. lol
My parents are coming with us to Disney so it will be a big family affair.
I am making shirts for all 6 of us!
I keep thinking that I am almost done and then I see something else to make...lol
I am also making my girls their own coloring books..they don't know yet. I plan on putting them in their carry on's and have them "find" them when they get on the plane.
