1. From my reader Kathleen…. We don’t do exactly matching shirts, but we do the same color.
2. From my reader Donna…. These were our shirts from our 2010 trip.
3. From my reader Nancy…. We went to Disney World last April. I went to the Dis boards and had someone make several designs for me. This design was the same for all the kids (my boys and their 2 cousins). It has their name on it. It cost me about $5 to make each shirt.
4 & 5. From my reader Amy…. My favorite shirts from our trip.
6 & 7. From my reader Heather…. On our last visit to WDW (July 2010 – our 3rd visit) I made my kids matching shirts for each day that we were there….I had them coordinate to what or where we were going to be that day. The shirts were fun to make and was a nice surprise to the kids to have a new shirt each day of their trip. I shopped for shirts that were on sale or on clearance….just plain little tshirts! I had the designs made for me from some designers on the www.disboards.com and then I printed them all here at home on my printer onto the iron on transfers.
8. From my reader DeAnn… I made these 8 shirts for our trip this past October. At first my husband was not interested, but everyone else was on board. He quickly changed his mind once he saw everyone together. I will save you from the details because it took about 3 different methods to finally get the end product. I ended up using black fabric “puffy” paint to paint the mickey heads. I used an old CD for the center and 2 metal washers I found in my husband’s workshop for the ears. For our next trip, I found some tie-dye shirts on clearance ($2 each) at Target and I’ll just paint the mickey heads and be done. I really like the coordinated shirts for pictures and also for identification in crowds. Since our trip was in October, we were also able to take advantage of Disney.com end-of-season sales for personalized shirts for the kids.
9-11. From my reader Cindy… Here are some pictures. Two are of the tie dye shirts. And then one of just the Disney shirt and one of 2010 shirts, my son’s was a different color, they didn’t have child sizes in the same color as the large sizes ugh. But I hate buying the year shirts, because then if we then wear them the next year, I kinda get confused, because the shirt isn’t showing the right year. You know what I mean. This last trip I found online at the disney store a blue mickey shirt for my husband and I and just had my son wear another blue mickey shirt. Then we do have the shirts with the 4 worlds on it, in different colors though. We just did that this last trip in March, so I don’t have my photopass pics of that shirt to share yet.
12. From my reader Renee… Here is a pic of one of the sets of matching Disney shirts that I have made for the family. I love making the shirts and we always get tons of compliments on them. I also try to make each of the kids a special personalized shirt for each trip.
