We love Disney T-shirts, its one of the most popular items purchased in the parks. However, what to do when it’s unwearable? Maybe worn out from too many trips, stained from the Mickey Ear Ice Cream bar, or no longer fits (nothing to do with the Mickey Ear Ice Cream Bar). You can always recycle (or the new word is upcycle) your favorites. Here are a few ideas of my own and some fun tips I found while searching the internet.
Make a Quilt
Or if you are like me, have someone make a quilt for you. There are many services out there that will take your old t-shirts, cut out the image and sew into a quilt of memories. What better way to have your trip memories available as a cozy blanket to wrap around you as you watch your favorite Disney classic on TV. If you are handy of course you can do this on your own and make it a family project!
Write a Book
Many of the photo printing sites out there offer soft and hard cover books of your photos. Some even use Disney backgrounds and graphics. Often there are great deal for free books or half price book. Take a close up photo of the image on your t-shirt. Either on you or stretched out on the back of a chair. Make a collage book of your favorite t-shirts and maybe include text with fun anctedotes of that particular trip. For example: “ This is the 2010 trip shirt we bought Andrew after he got soaked on Splash Mountain”. You can even put in a few pics of your family wearing the shirt on a trip. Then if the shirt is in good shape, give to a charity of your choice. There are many kids that will never make it to Disney and the shirt alone will be priceless.
