So Monday's Mickey Countdown post might have eluded to this, but all week I'll be posting the crafting that went along with our family vacation to Orlando. Today's great - beware, cuteness overload:
Then I got to thinking how I hope the girls even know who Minnie Mouse is (we're cable deprived so if it's not on PBS...) so I googled Minnie Mouse Images - - guess which one they zeroed in on??
So I made a belt by attaching two ruffles of black dot onto the sides of a strip of red dot, then sewed the strip all the way around the shirt to make a casing. To make it look more fitted, like a belt, I threaded elastic through the opening, just like you would when you make an elastic waistband in pants.
Then they needed a bow, like Minnie. I covered headbands in black dot then made a big bow (like here, but 2 loops instead of 4) out of red dot and glued it on top. Hope it stays!The whole Minnie Mouse Outfit is really cute! I wish I could have gotten a picture with both girls wearing theirs but one is at school and it's blog crunch time so I couldn't wait. Oh well - I'm sure we'll get plenty at Disneyworld.
