We’re headed to Disney World in just a few days and I wanted to share these again because gosh, they just turned out so cute! Sadly we’re not going to the Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this year but we’ll be having fun nevertheless.
Our passes to Disney World expired earlier this week so we decided to take a 2-day trip with the kids. Unbeknownst to us, my mother and sister-in-laws were going too. My MIL decided to take all of us to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. We had a great time. We were able to basically walk on to any ride we wanted. There was a really fun parade and lots of candy if you wanted it (we bypassed that portion).
We didn’t want to go to the party without costumes but in mid-Florida, mid-September, it’s just way too hot for regular costumes so I decided to make us some t-shirts to wear.
I was on such a time crunch to make all of these, I don’t have any actual tutorial for you, but I’ll just tell you what I did.
First I figured out what designs I wanted to do. Then I made sure I had all the fabric colors I needed. I measured out the sizes of the designs and ironed Heat N Bond to my fabric pieces (just follow the directions on the package). I then used my Silhouette to cut out most of the shapes. I did this to save time. BUT you could easily trace an image onto your fabric and cut around it with a pair of fabric scissors. It doesn’t have to be super perfect because you’re just going to sew around it. I did this with several of the pieces.
Once you’ve cut out your pieces, you’re going to sew them onto your t-shirts. Now, the Heat N Bond is supposed to be enough to stay onto your shirts. But I wanted them to hold up and look a little nicer so I zig-zagged stitched around all of my designs. I did a tight zig zag.
And here’s how they all turned out.
My son loves Jack the Pumpkin King so he chose this design.
I chose a Minnie Mouse Ghost.
I made this Bride of Frankenstein – Minnie-style for my SIL.
You can see my messed up zig zag stitch in a few places. It got stuck several times. Oh well. Still turned out super cute.
This is my daughter’s ensemble. I just love it. The green little bow makes it. For a really great tutorial on how to make this simple skirt, check out Dana’s tutorial.
My husband chose a Vampire Mickey shirt.
And I made a candy corn Minnie for my MIL.
Didn’t they all turn out so cute?!? I can’t decide which one is my favorite!
So, have you been to the Not-So-Scary party? Here’s a picture of my little family in our shirts.
We were very hot and sweaty by this point in the night. Ha!!
Anyways, it was a lot of fun to make personal t-shirts for my family. I’d love to hear which one is your favorite!
