Little Princesses November 14, 2010 – Posted in: Applique, Sewing
I mailed another package today, this time it was full of things for a Disney trip! I swear, everyone’s going to Disney World but us! I mailed a Handy Manny shirt at the same time that someone bought out of my etsy store for their trip to DW this month. It must be in the water! 🙂
Anyway, I loved sewing these dresses. They’re so perfect for the occasion! I can’t wait to see pictures of the little honey’s in them! (one is a 3T, the other is a 12m)
I was even able to find ribbon with the Princesses on it!
There was also a Minnie-inspired dress for the older sister.
And finally a tote for Mom to haul around everything they might need!
I lined it with big red and white polka dots, because I couldn’t pass up using this fabric on this tote!
The name I did on Heat n Bond (not lite, the red one) and just ironed it on. Since I don’t have the ability to embroider, and the letters are too little to applique, this was a great solution! The font is called Walter and can be found here.
Hope you guys have a wonderful trip!!

I absolutely love these dresses. They look like the pillow case dress but please tell me how to make them. I found your website by clicking on the t-shirt dress. I love how you make so many different things for your girls (whom are beautiful) and how resourceful you are. When I was little my grandmother would make me cloths and I never got to learn and now I’m enjoying myself in making blankets so far and would like to try cloths. Thank you again and LOVE your website.

I just came across your blog and these Disney themed items…so adorable! How did you get the Disney letters so perfect? Any tips? I know you uesd Heat N Bond but did you cut those all out by hand or a fabric cutter of sorts after you applied Heat N Bond? I have the Disney font already so I’m thinking I could do this.

I did cut them out by hand. Because of their awkward shape I didn’t stitch them down, I just used the no sew heat n bond and the Mom I made the dress for said the letters started to peel off after the first several washings and she had to glue them back down. If I used them again, I think I’d cut the letters out of freezer paper and paint them on using the freezer paper stenciling method!
