I am going on the Disney Cruise this summer with my 6 person family, so my mom thought it would be neat if we made our own T-shirts for "pirate night." Pirate Night is one night on the cruise when everybody dresses as a pirate, so we thought we would make our own costumes. Because it is the Disney Cruise, we tried to find a design that incorporated Mickey and as you can see in the picture, we found the perfect design. Painting on T-shirts by this method is easy and it requires no special skill. 

By using this painting method, you can make custom uniforms, shirts for a party, shirts for a 5k, and even shirts that are machine washable! Plus, it is much more fun to paint your own shirts with your friends than pay much more money and wait for them to come in the mail.  I hope you enjoy making your own T-shirts!

This Is Perfect for when I Make My &quot;Vote For Christian&quot; (Vote For Pedro) SHirt! For Class Elections!
nicely done =)
How washable is the fabric glue? Will it start to show cracks after one wash like iron on pictures?
The design is on there pretty good, better than an iron on. Ours seem to be doing fine with the wash. Good Luck!<br /><br />-Doctordv
Its a great idea. I need to make a couple of company shirts and screen printing seems too messy and time consuming for the limited number of items I need. Thanks for sharing.
Nice. <br />When I do this I use regular printingpaper and spray mounting glue on the back to get it to stick.
Love that. I am a serial tee shirt painter, and your method is a whole lot quicker than mine. Thank you and I am officially stealing your method for my next tee shirt painting session.
Nice t-shirt! I could have used this tip on the t-shirt I made. You did a great job, thanks for sharing.
