Want to see what I've been working on this week?
Oh my gosh... it was SO fun!
My little cousin is going to Disney World this weekend and I got to make her some special things!
It was awesome! My sweet cousin in law told me a few things; like that she liked~ Cinderella, Stitch and Pooh and no dresses... other than that, I was given all creative control!
The hardest part was decided what to make and what fabrics to use.
I started with this sweet Cinderella dress and ruffle pants.
I used Lynnie Pinnie's cutie princess for this outfit, but I didn't use a pattern for the top and pants... I just made it up.
Then I made this little Pooh outfit by cutting off the bottom of a t-shirt and adding the little ruffle skirt and pooh applique.
The pants are SO cool...
The pattern comes from the book, Handmade Beginnings by Anna Maria Horner. They're called quick change trousers and I've wanted to make them for a long time, but didn't have a reason to. I'm so glad I got to make them for Rowan.
Aren't they darling?!
So, then I made this little peasant top to match the reverse of the Pooh pants.
I love that Mickey Mouse fabric on there! I bought it as a Japanese import off etsy a while ago for William and then decided it was too girly for him. Sadly, my girls have never had much use for Mickey Mouse... so it was a thrill to make something out of it!
Then I made this darling, soft, knit, outfit with Stitch on it.
I guess it's my cousin's favorite Disney character... although... I can't imagine why... I think that little guy is weird and I've never been a fan of that movie, but just the same, I think this outfit is adorable!
I used the Jocole Crossover tunic for the top. (love that pattern!)
and the Tie Dye Diva's new Better Baby Pants pattern for the bottoms.... oh... those cheeky bum ruffles!
I just love how comfy and soft and different this baby outfit is.
But, I think my favorite, for Disney World has to be this adorable pink and black set for Rowan to wear with her pink and black Mickey Mouse ears.... I mean... how cute is she gonna be?
A poofy, ruffle, tutu with a sweet, personalized mickey mouse onesie!
I used the Walt font by 8 claws and a paw for the name.
I also made her a little blanket to cover up with a the park.
For Mom, I made this drawstring backpack with a pattern from Aivilo Charlotte. It came out so cute.
The main Mickey Mouse fabric is from Hancock Fabrics and the red is from Hobby Lobby.
I tried to make it unisex so that either parent could carry it. I've made drawstring backpacks before, but not like this. I really like that the straps are fabric and that it has 2 pockets!
Ella REALLY liked it. She wants me to make her one ASAP!
I also made Mommy a tiny, little diaper and wipes bag that can hook on the stroller and quickly be removed to go to the bathroom.
It's a really neat design by Aivilo charlotte sewing patterns. It has the little window in the front where you can access your travel baby wipes and then an extra interior pocket (for a change of clothes, maybe) and then the little pocket on the back for diapers. I love how you can just clip the strap on and off with the little lobster clips! I'm gonna make one of these for my new niece and nephew, too.
Where was all this cool stuff when my kids were tiny???
eh... I wouldn't have had time to make it then, anyways.
It took me about 4 to 5 days to complete all this stuff, but it was just pure joy. I enjoyed every minute of the planning and sewing process.
I cannot wait to see that precious baby in her One Of A Kind wardrobe!
Thank you, Carrie and Doug for letting me do this. It was a blast!
