Craft: No Sew Mickey Head Applique Tee

After reading about Jillian’s homemade floral Mickey ears I was inspired to exercise my own craftiness and make my daughter an outfit for her first trip to Disney!

The first thing I did was find some inspiration fabric. We’re going to Walt Disney World while it’s all gussied up for Christmastime so I chose a vintage-y Christmas Mickey & friends fabric.

You’ll need a tee shirt (or onesie for baby), scissors, an iron, a printout of a Mickey head in an appropriate size for your shirt, Heat N Bond Ultrahold and your fabric. shirt1

  1. Trace the Mickey head on to the paper side (not the bumpy side) of your Heat N Bond.
  2. Place the Heat N Bond bumpy side down on to the “wrong” side of your fabric (not the side you want showing on your shirt!)
  3. Press the iron on to the Heat N Bond for 6-8 seconds as directed on the packaging. Let cool.
  4. Cut out the Mickey head.
  5. Remove the paper backing and place on the shirt where you’d like it to be. B702ADFD-349E-43EC-8865-61C5FACA18F1_zpsfkftkikp
  6. Press the iron on the Mickey head for another 6-8 seconds as directed on the packaging.

Voila! That’s it, you’re done 🙂

This same process can be used to make any design! I went with a Mickey head because of the limited space on a baby’s onesie but you could do your name (make sure to print the text in reverse for the tracing step), a silhouette, anything really! Easy and fun.

As you can see, I decided to make a matching skirt, too! This project is great for a beginner. The pattern can be found here.
