for a minnie lover



My friend up the street throws great birthday parties.  I have had the luck of sneaking in on a few of them for her kids.  She just threw a Minnie Mouse party for her 4 year old and it was so sweet. It made me want to dip my toes in to the birthday party arena.  I still fear that one a bit and usually just let my kids have a few kids over for a simple celebration.  She even made all the little girls red and white or pink and white polka dot skirts, gave them matching polka dot hair bows and mouse ears.  These girls were in heaven.  Knowing it was a Minnie theme, we decided to roll with that and make her daughter a Minnie outfit for a gift.  Inspired by another friend's appliques that she made for her daughters for their recent trip to Disney World, I added a simple applique to a white t-shirt.  Then, I made a quick skirt to match, pulling the lace trim off of a bed sheet I had inherited from my mother in law and adding a mini Minnie applique to the bottom.  I had a pair of black leggings I bought last year at the end of the season that matched perfect that I added to the outfit.  Hopefully, the Minnie lover will love her Minnie ensemble.

I tried listing my favorite parts but nearly wrote everything. I loved the slight pattern on Minnie , the lace and the black leggings the most. Great Work! I'm taking notes for my next trip.
