It’s been awhile since we both went to Disney World so we knew we had to make something epic for our trip! Did you know that having personalized Disney shirts is a thing? We actually had no clue, but thankfully we fit right in!! OH BOY!
Originally we were thinking of making shirts with pre-made Disney SVG files, but then we had the idea to “Disney-fy” our logo with Mickey ears and we’re obsessed! Adding Mickey ears is a super easy way to add Disney magic to any image!
How to customize Mickey ears on an SVG file or Cricut image:
1. Start with a circle – Click on the shapes button located on the left panel of the canvas. A window will slide out with different shape options, click the circle.
2. Unlock, resize and duplicate – Unlock the proportions of the circle by clicking the blue lock located in the bottom left-hand corner. Resize the circle by dragging the green little arrows in the bottom right-hand corner. Lock the circle again and click the duplicate button to easily add another ear.
3. Position ears – Click on the circle to drag into place and position.
4. Weld together – Highlight image with ears and click the weld button at the bottom right corner. Welding will connect pieces of your project that you want cut out as one piece.
How to cut and iron-on:
The weather called for chilly mornings and even colder nights, so we knew we wanted to personalize our hoodies. Thanks Old Navy!
Never used the Cricut EasyPress? Just like the Cricut Maker – the EasyPress is extremely easy to use and guides you through everything. You can use an iron for this project, but the great thing about using a Cricut EasyPress is you can set the exact temperature for the materials you’re using and it let’s you know exactly how long to press. (Different types of Iron-on have different care instructions, make sure to use the recommended settings chart to make every project perfect.) Also, there’s no hot spot – which means even heat throughout that will allow for a durable long lasting finish to your project. Cricut even offers a StrongBond Guarantee!
Our trip was awesome, but too short! Aren’t all vacations though?
The hardest part about this project was knowing that eventually at some point our Disney trip would come to an end…it’s always so hard to leave Disney and return to the real world.
