Wearing fun themed shirts is part of visiting amusement parks. We’ve been to LEGOLAND many times now over the years and I made my boys these LEGO t-shirts for our first visit.
At this point Elliot already had a few cute Star Wars LEGO shirts but Elliot didn’t have any, so I knew I needed to make a cool LEGO T-shirt for them.
Making custom DIY LEGO t-shirts, boils down to two big steps. 1) Create a design and 2) Iron it on. Easy Peasy! 🙂
DIY LEGO T-Shirt
One of earliest designs for our Disney trips were Mickey Heads, so along those lines it made sense for these shirts to be just LEGO man outlines.
Voila! What do you think of my LEGO design?
I decided to just add the boys’ first initial on to the design rather than their full names.
And because I am awesome and I don’t want you to struggle with a design, I am sharing my DIY LEGO Shirt design template with you.
Download this blank LEGO Minifigure design to make your own custom LEGO t-shirt
You can print a blank LEGO Man design or upload the design into photo editing websites like PicMonkey or Canva to add additional details like names or initials. They are really easy to use and once you’ve added extra details, just download the new design.
Iron On LEGO T-shirts
This shirts predate my beloved Cricut Machine and iron-on vinyl. So I used printable iron-on transfers and an ink jet printer to create these.
If you are completely new to making custom shirts and don’t have a Cricut, I recommend just buying printable iron-on transfer paper and following the directions carefully. Also Etsy has some great shirt designs too.
At this point I would just cut the design out using my Cricut Machine and iron-on vinyl because I think it works much better.
