Sadie has had quite the love affair with Minnie Mouse (aka Ninny Mouw) so far in her short little life.
She had a Minnie Mouse first birthday party, four trips to Disneyland within a year (twice where she got to meet Minnie), carries around her stuffed Minnie almost everywhere she goes (including her high chair for breakfast, baths, the store, etc), and sings the hot dog song from the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show constantly. (that last one is pretty cute, actually)
So it was only fitting that I make her a Minnie Mouse dress up dress. “Only fitting” meaning I really really wanted to make her one…and luckily she was excited when she saw it! She even gets excited when she sees the leftover polka dot fabric in my craft room. She carries it around with her. huh. I wonder if she likes that more than her dress….anyways…
I used a basic pattern I had, adjusting it a little bit, and added a strip of velcro on the back for easy on and off. It’s a bit big on her now, but that’s fine with me, the longer she can wear it, the better!
I also just HAD to make these cute little felt gloves…I got the idea from this blog. So fun, huh? Sadie loves them and they were really quick to make!
Question: Why do the Disney characters have only four fingers? It’s creepy.
“Smile, Sadie! Stand right here! Look at me! Hey, Sadie! Stop picking your nose and look at Mommy, please?!”
Can you blame her for being a little wary of me and my camera?
