Materials You'll Need
- Jeans (washed and dried)
- White or black fabric paint
- Round foam stippler brushes in various sizes
- Iron-on letter patches
- Iron and ironing board
- Thin cotton fabric
- Paper plate
- Wash and dry your denim as instructed on the garment.
- Layout the iron-on patches to spell "Mickey".
- Iron on each patch using a thin cotton fabric and a 15-second press. Repeat for all patches.

- Place a piece of cardboard behind the fabric you plan to stamp.
- Dispense the fabric paint onto a paper plate.

Adding Personal Touches
Get creative and make the jeans your own with added embellishments like rhinestones, character patches, or alternate fabric paint colors. If you find the patches lifting, use a small amount of fabric glue for a longer-lasting result. Make this DIY project a fun family activity and bring the magic of Disney to your everyday style!
