Elsa Crown

I wanted to pop in and share this cute in-the-hoop Elsa crown I made this week on my embroidery machine.

The design is from Luna Stitches. She also has a matching mask I may break down and buy as well.

The crown was really easy and fun to do.  I made it along with another Elsa applique shirt as a gift for a birthday party the girls are going to this weekend.

They both insisted they HAD to try it on!

I am sure they will each get one of their own soon!

Our trip to Disney World

I know its been quite a while since I last posted. This may continue for a bit longer. I haven’t quit sewing; I just have not been posting about it lately. I will try to check in from time to time with things I think are worth sharing with you all. I did have a few requests to post my creations for my family’s recent trip to Disney World. So here are the 5 days worth of kids clothes I made for the trip! Whew! whole setThe majority of the blank shirts were purchased at Target or Wal-Mart and I added the appliques with my embroidery machine. I also did not sew any of the shorts my son is wearing in the photos below. I ran out of time and he had PLENTY already! I did make all the girls bottoms. I am pretty impressed with myself because we decided on the trip just a little over a month before we left and I only had 12 kid-free school days to plan the outfits and make them.

The kids were just as excited about the plane ride as they were about
going to Disney World!

On day 1, we arrived at our hotel around noon and headed to the Magic Kingdom. The kids wore their Frozen outfits. The girls chose Elsa appliques and Calder chose Olaf. elsa on girls The pants were made using Create Kids Couture’s new Raelyn’s Triple Ruffle Bow Shorts pattern.elsa close up The Elsa applique design is from CuteByKira and the Olaf design is from AppliqueCandy. I am so in love with using glitter sheets!OLAF Of course, we had to stop for a Dole Whip! Yum! Maya with pinapple ice cream
On day 2, we headed to Epcot and the kids wore their Mickey and Minnie shirts. The Mouse head appliques are from Blastostitch. The monogram is from Hang to Dry. I accidentally put Calder’s Mickey too low so I added the “Meeska Mooska” above it using a Blastostitch Disney font. The shorts are Whimsy Couture Ruffle Shorts pattern. They are really easy to make and the pattern comes with optional belt loops and a pocket. I will try adding those next time.mickey heads 2 Epcot is my favorite park and I think the kids really had a blast too! Maya with shark naomi panda fireworks
