DIY Disney Shirts for Girls

As soon as I finished making Halloween costumes last week, I got started on these cute {and oh so girly} diy Disney shirts for a friend's little girl who is going to Disney World for the first time! If you've been around here long, you know that I don't often have the opportunity to make cute/pink/girly things since I live in a house full of boys....so I may have gone a little overboard with the pink! I don't think Taylor will be complaining though, specially since this trip to Disney is a surprise and she isn't going to find out until they are getting ready to head to Orlando! Anyway, I had a ton of fun coming up with some fun color combos and different girly things to make for her. I probably could have gone a lot girlier with more ribbon and ruffles, but that just doesn't seem to come natural to me after 8 years of nothing but boy stuff!
This first shirt is just a plain pink shirt with a Mickey head appliqued from some cute fabric left over from a Valentine's craft a few years ago.
This shirt is my favorite for sure! It is a pink felt Mickey head with a gray and white chevron Mickey head on top with a lower case pink felt "t" appliqued on top of that.
The color on this one didn't show up great in the picture, but it is a black shirt with Taylor's name appliqued on from some cute red and white heart fabric {again left over from a Valentine craft}. My favorite part of this shirt is the Mickey head instead of the "O" in her name:)
And you just can't make girly Disney shirts without including Tinkerbell. I made this one with some Silhouette heat transfer material. I found the Tinkerbell shape online and used my Silhouette to cut out Tink. I also cut Taylor's name using the font Waltograph. Then all I did was iron it all onto the shirt! 
This was my last shirt to make, because I really wanted to include a Minnie in the mix but for some reason none of the other shirts seemed very Minnie-ish to me. The black and white chevron on this shirt is from a dishtowel that I picked up at Target a few months ago and I bet you can't guess where the pink and white polka dot fabric is from {yep, it's leftover Valentine's material}:)
All of these shirts were really easy to make. For the most part I printed out my template, cut the fabric out, and then used a zigzag stitch to applique the fabric to the shirts. I didn't include any step by step instructions because I've done that quite a few times {and I was kind of in a hurry to make these before their big trip}, but if you need help shoot me an email {kellibwilson@gmail.com} and I'll be happy to help out any way I can. You can also click HERE to see all the other crafty shirts I've made...I'm pretty sure there are a few step by step posts in the mix somewhere!

Those are adorable.

While we were down there, I kept thinking about you each time I saw kids in some cute Disney stuff. I knew they were handmade, and I was remembering what you did for your boys.
