Whoot! As you read this, Madalynn and I are at Disneyland! Maddy surprised me with this trip for just the 2 of us Disney lovers together! We are spending 5 days at this magical place!
Have you heard of Disney Bounding? It is a thing that people do to dress in a way that represents Disney characters without actually being in that character's costume. Maddy really wanted for us to do that, so we made shirts and ears to be reminiscent of some of our favorite characters.
I have used Avery products for many of the projects like this that I have made. Their products are high quality and the Avery website is so easy and helpful to use. Plus, I can save the designs that I make in my own file for later use. My business cards are saved on there and all of my Hot Cocoa Bomb Labels. Avery is always my go-to for my printing needs.
For these shirts, I used Fabric Transfers. They are available to order right from their site, or you can purchase them in stores like Walmart. Next, you go to avery.com and design what you want to print on your shirts. The nice thing is that Avery automatically will reverse the print to the mirror image so that you don't have to worry about it. I have made that mistake and wasted so much transfer paper trying to do this on my own! But, this is how our prints came out:
One important tip is to be sure to trim as close to the design as possible to get the best look. If you leave too large of a margin, you will get a plastic looking outline that isn't pretty. But look how cute these Sleeping Beauty shirts came out!
After you clip out the design, just decide where you want to iron it on and then have at it! Let is cool a bit and then peel it off. Voila!
Here are our Doc and Sleepy shirts! We will post ourselves wearing them as the week progresses! Check out our Instagram this week to see all of the fun!
