In preparation for our Disney trip, I decided to make a mickey shirt for myself. Somehow the boys each have Disney tees (ok, so D has enough to outfit him for a week), but I had none. I decided to try a bleach method I had seen on various sites and make my own.
- freezer paper
- Mickey silhouette
- spray bottle with 60/40 mix of bleach & water
I google image searched for the Mickey silhouette. I planned to print it and then trace, but quickly took a lazier easier route – I held a piece of freezer paper to the screen and lightly traced it with a Sharpie. Seriously. It looked the right size and was a lot quicker than scaling & printing.
After you have your design, cut it out and iron it onto the shirt. Then place a piece of cardboard inside the shirt to prevent the bleach from going through. Spray with the bleach/water mix and let dry.
After the shirt has dried, rinse it in cold water to help remove any excess bleach. Machine wash and dry. I washed mine alone just in case any bleach was remaining and used hot water intentionally trying to shrink it a tad since it was a little loose.
Then end result …
a fun and unique Mickey shirt.
