Donald Duck Shirt

My daughter LOVES Donald Duck, and she wanted a new shirt to where for Halloween that was Donald Duck inspired but without looking like she was dressed up in a Donald Duck costume.

My inspiration was a Donald Duck card that I made for her birthday this year . . . 


I started with a plain blue t-shirt, yellow ribbon, stitch witchery, iron on product and an iron.
Using yellow ribbon and stitch witchery I placed the yellow lines for the border of Donald's shirt.  If you have never used stitch witchery, it is a bonding agent that is activated by heat.  When I place it between the ribbon and the shirt and then iron over it, it will fuse them together.  I like to stitch things down after I have allowed the stitch witchery to cool back down just to really insure a strong hold.


I used the red iron on T-shirt transfer from Neenah Paper Inc.  It comes in 12 x 12 sheets of solid colors. 
I cut the bow from the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge at 4" with Real Dial Size on.  I did this so that it would cut the bow at a TRUE 4" and not scaled to fit the overall image of Donald Duck at 4".  For more on using Real Dial Size I would recommend getting a copy of the DVD 

I ironed the bow on to the front of the shirt and then allowed it to cool before removing the backing.  I think that the finished shirt turned out really cute!



And my daughter seems to like it too!
