DIY Minion Shirts

Madeline’s Despicable Me themed party is Saturday, so everything in our lives are being minion-ized these days.  I think the minions are cute, but Gru is by far my favorite character from the movies, so I’m ready to move past the minions already.  😉

Mad, on the other hand, is thrilled with all the minion stuff.  I just keep chanting to myself, “three more days….three more days…”


Sick of minions or not, I thought the t-shirts turned out pretty well and the girls are dying to pick their favorites and wear them, so it looks like I’ll be seeing minions for some time to come.

These bad boys were pretty simple to put together.  The eyes and goggles are felt.  I attached them with fusible webbing and then stitched around the edges.  For the hair and mouth I used DecoArt’s SoSoft fabric paint, which was really easy to apply with a thin paintbrush.



Hopefully the kids will approve.

I have a few more minion-ish things I need to work on, but I’ll be sure to share all about the party next week.

  1. Eeeekkkk!!! I am in LOVE with the shirts!! I may have to make them for the boys JUST so I can see them all the time. I think Mad is going to LOVE her party! Can’t wait to see the pictures!

  2. Felt tends to shrink in the wash… ask me how I know, haha! I’ve found fleece to be a better choice. These shirts are adorable, and I will definitely be making some for my grandsons!

  5. Panicking mom doing these for first grade field day- 27 children- and I cannnot get the felt to attach to the felt with Aleene’s fabric glue and I really don’t have the time to hand sew all of them (not machine savy). Any ideas???? Love them; thank you!
