Thanks to the OP for this thread. I like how my shirts came out and we had so much fun at the parks. I glued rhinestones around the mickey heads on the girls shirts. It was very quick and easy. We were stopped numerous times and asked how we made them.The CMs would say things like, "you've got your own hidden mickey". It was also very easy to keep up with our group in the park--very easy to spot that tie dye

We loved them so much that we washed them each night and wore them everyday, sorta our Disney uniform now.

Just a tip

Hi. We did our tie dye shirts on Saturday and just wanted to give a little tip we figured out. The trick to get the mickey ears to be prominant on the shirts is to REALLY pull the dental floss tight when you knot it. Also, to
REALLY make the rubber bands tight when you band off the mickey head. Keeps the dye from seeping through too much.

I'll post pics when I get time to take them. These shirts are awesome! A great big thanks to whoever started these and to those who posted with step by step instructions. My hubby says he won't wear his, but I say he will. We're going with extra family and his mom will make him wear his. Just look for us Sept. 17-24th. He'll be the one who looks like grumpy wearing a tie-dye shirt. LOL!!!

We made these shirts for our trip last year and even though it was our first attempt at tye dye I think we did a pretty good job. The directions were great. We wore these to MK and I can't tell you how many times we were stopped and asked where we bought these! Bought them. They couldn't believe it when I said we had made them. This is a picture of 4 of us but grandma and grandpa were wearing them too so there were 6 of us all wearing these together.

I love the colors you used. Can you share what brand dye you used and the colors? Thanks!

Thanks everyone for the kind words. We just used the tie dye kit from Michaels. I think the brand was Tulip and it came with the 5 vibrant colors. As you can see ds mickey head was a little blurred so remember after you stitch and are putting the rubber bands around the mickey head to get them really tight. He didn't care and they were each unique so different parts stood out. We did different shirts for each day we were there but the rest were all iron on transfers and while they turned out good, these were by far our favorites!

Did you put a baggie over the mickey head after you dyed it to keep it seperate from the other colors? I hope to do this maybe this weekend or the next week. I also bought the Tulip kit from Michaels (gotta love those 40% off coupons!), but bought the 3 color kit with fuschia, teal and yellow.

I think we did put some cling wrap over them because it seemed we had shirt going in every direction with all the banding so everytime we moved something to get to another part it would make the mikey head move and we didn't want to ruin them (of course at that time we didn't know if any would turn out right but we were trying to be extra cautious). If I had it to do again I might experiment on 1 first just to get the hang of it and work out any bugs in my plan rather than jumping right in and doing all 6 at once but we were running out of time before our trip since I was making a total of 34 shirts I think. Crazy I know.

34 shirts??? I thought I was ambitious with my craft projects I'll post pictures after I do them. I'm only doing two--one for me and one for my daughter. I doubt very seriously my motocross husband would wear a tie-dyed mickey mouse shirt I've also seen some shirts with little rhinestones or crystals outlining the heads and like the look of those, so I think I'll probably do that too

At least the rest of them were iron ons so they didn't take quite as long. Good luck with your shirts, I have a feeling they will turn out GREAT!!

I kind of had to work on my husband (ok and apply a bit of guilt ) to get him to wear one but even he was happy with all the comments we got and how easy it was to keep track of everyone because we all matched each day.
