Last month we visited Disneyland for the first time- and I wanted at least a few photos of our family with matching shirts. I also wanted our wardrobe to reflect our bilingual family culture.
The problem was, I couldn’t find any Disney themed shirts in Spanish, and I knew I would have to make my own.
That’s when I discovered the Cricut machine. The possibilities for design and personalization are endless- and after the initial investment of the machine- so much cheaper than buying the same t-shirts that everyone else has.
When I was searching for a fun theme, I landed on Tinkerbell. My girls are currently obsessed with fairies and we can watch Tinkerbell in Spanish on Netflix, so I thought that might be a fun avenue.
And then, once I found out that we could meet Tinkerbell at Disneyland it was game on- we were going to have family Tinkerbell shirts in Spanish. Here’s how I did it:
Materials for DIY Tinker Bell Shirt in Spanish
- Cricut Maker Machine
- Cricut Design Space Software
- 12 x 12 standard grip cut mat
- Iron on Vinyl, gold sparkle
- Easy Press (optional)
- Weeding Tool
How To Make DIY Tinker Bell Shirt in Spanish
- I always wash and dry the t-shirt before I print and press a logo on it just in case the shirt shrinks post-production. I chose a fun green t-shirt for this collection.
- While you are washing and drying, go ahead and download the Cricut Design Space software if you haven’t already.
- Create your Tinkerbell and stars. I just uploaded a silhouette of Tinker Bell in Cricut Design Space and edited out the white background, and the stars were right in Design Space.
- I used the Waltograph font, which you can download here, to write “Yo Creo”. Note that you have to sign out and back into Cricut Design Space in order for a new font to register.
- Make sure to adjust the design to the exact size that you want. I generally do about a 3×5″ rectangle for kids and a 5×7″ rectangle for adult shirts.
- Put the iron-on vinyl onto your mat, and load the machine. Remember to turn mirror ON, and print the number of copies that you want.
- After printing- weed! This took me no time at all. Lay the design onto the shirt and press with your new Cricut Easy Press (see below for details on how to win on from our Instagram Giveaway.)
