Welcome Mandy! Thanks for the Mini Mouse Costume Tutorial!
Hi everyone!! I'm Mandy, from over at Sugar Bee Crafts:
Here's the whole gang on our recent vacation:
I enjoy all things crafty and have lots of DIY and tutorials on my blog. I even have a link party on Tuesdays so I can see your craftiness - then I show off a bunch of you on Wednesdays. You might know me from a couple of my posts (click picture to check them out!):
Handmade Dress-Up Series - - what a fun idea! Do you have kids that want to wear their dress-ups ALL.DAY.LONG. Don't we all?!? So with my quick tutorial today, I wanted to show you how to make a "dress-up" outfit that's comfy too - more like an everyday outfit. So here we go - Minnie Mouse outfit, gone casual - -
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.
Oh, and more recently I made these cute Minnie Mouse hairclips that I show off on my blog, if you want to check those out...
