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! The 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.
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. The pants were made using Create Kids Couture’s new Raelyn’s Triple Ruffle Bow Shorts pattern. The Elsa applique design is from CuteByKira and the Olaf design is from AppliqueCandy. I am so in love with using glitter sheets! Of course, we had to stop for a Dole Whip! Yum!
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. Epcot is my favorite park and I think the kids really had a blast too!
On day 3, we went to Hollywood Studios. They wore shirts with their first initial on them. The skirts have a surprise.They are actually skorts! I used the easy to sew 5 Berries Isabella skort pattern. The shirts’ alpha applique is also from Hang to Dry. We also got to meet Jake. It was one of Calder’s favorite moments!
Day 4 was my girls’ 5th Birthday! We decided to head back to the Magic Kingdom to celebrate. The shorts are from The Mean Princess whose Etsy shop is currently closed but you can send them a request to notify you if she decides to reopen it. The applique is from DaisySproutsDesigns. Naomi was so excited to have a shirt with a unicorn drawn carriage on it. Calder’s shirt was inspired by a super cute Prince Charming costume I saw on Etsy. The shop has been removed but she does have a Facebook page here. Hopefully she will reopen it because her shirts are wonderful! The girl’s had a great birthday! A little rain didn’t stop the fun. It also made for a beautiful backdrop for the castle.
Day 5 was spent at the Animal Kingdom. It was VERY wet. I didn’t get a lot of good photos of the kids in their outfits.We spent most of the day sprinting from shelter to shelter and we all were soaked! Calder’s Bucky applique is from Glizystiches. He loves this shirt and requested to wear it again to school today! The girls wore tops with deer appliques from DBembroideryDesigns. Their shorts are from Little Kiwis Closet. I just love the little bow details on the sides! We had an awesome time and are looking forward to our next trip back in a few years.At least I have a little more time to plan their outfits. 😉
