This week’s Happy Friday submission comes in from Hip2Save reader, Cindy.

We went on a trip to Disney World with extended family and it was amazing! We wanted to dress for fun without spending a lot of money.

Here are just a few of the items we were able to make ahead of time, thanks to our Cricut—and lots of Hip2Save deals! Not only do we share the use of the Cricut among family members, but we also have “Craft Days” with friends and their Cricuts so we can inspire each other and make the best use of our various cartridges.

Needless to say, the shirts and our crafting supplies (including items like matching headbands and ears) were purchased by following deals from Hip2Save at stores like Old Navy, Target, Carter’s, and Michaels. We loved our trip and were thankful for some wonderful family memories!

So crafty and oh so adorable!

We love how resourceful Cindy was to outfit her family with these fun Disney-themed shirts without having to pay a pretty penny for them. Also, if you’re wondering why there are holiday themes, Cindy’s trip was back in December during the Christmas season, but some of her designs can easily be worn year-round!

    Wouldn’t this be considered copyright infringement? Or maybe only if you try to sell them…?

    • Amy

      You can purchase a Cricut cartridge that has all the Disney images.

    I’ve been looking into cricut but I’m so overwhelmed so you need the cricut that you can print with but then also do you need the steam press or do you just use an iron?

    • Mel

      I just use my iron 🙂

    • Jane

      The Cricut is the machine that cuts images out. You design an image – text, uploaded images, etc. – and you can cut it out of paper or felt or leather. It seems overwhelming at first (I initially refused to use mine once I saw how “techy” this was) but there are many YouTube tutorials and once you play around on it a bit it gets really easy. I absolutely love my Cricut now. I make all my party decoration as, monogrammed shirts and gifts, etc.

      I have just used an iron $10 at Walmart. And I was the SAME way about cricut. But I bought one last week and LOVE it and it’s so easy.

    Can any of you refer me to a Cricut model? I already have the cake Cricut and obviously i can’t make anything like this. I would love to make shirts like these and other cool projects. Thanks in advance and have a great weekend!!!

    • Erica

      I like the cricut maker.

    I love Lina. She is so much fun. Please keep her posts coming.

      You bet! Thanks for the super sweet comment, Sherry! This is from reader Cindy! 💗

    Our recently remodeled JoAnn Fabrics has an awesome workspace in the center where you can rent various machines. The Cricut is $5/hr (includes mat and weeding tools), so I bought the vinyl there and linked my projects from the Cricut app on my phone to their machine. I had never used a Cricut, but both times I rented one a super nice employee showed me how to set it up and stopped by a few times to see if I needed any help. My girls sat at the table and drew with stuff we brought, but our store also had colored pencils and paper for kids. Love that store and their friendly employees!

    You can do this without the cricut also. Get heat n bond (not lite) from Walmart, hobby lobby, joanns etc. print your image then trace, cut and iron. It’s real easy for the Mickey head and you don’t need to sew. There’s you tube videos on how to use heat n bond.

    Beautiful shirts and a beautiful family! Hope you had a magical trip
