I am just as excited as the kids.
I'm probably MORE excited!
I wanted to get them a cute little Disney sweatshirt to wear around on the cool mornings and evenings, but I am just a "simple" girl, and I like things simple.
Sometimes Disney has a tenancy to "overdue" the Disneyness on a shirt and it looks like Disneyland threw up on it.
*cough* Tacky *cough*
So I took matters into my own hands.
I started with a plain hot pink sweatshirt from Walmart, $4.00
$4.00 SWEATSHIRT...YES PLEASE!
I grabbed a sheet of black felt too, $0.33.
Then you will need some Heat & Bond
LOVE THAT STUFF!
I googled "Mickey Mouse" and found my template.
Then I traced it onto the Heat & Bond, and cut it out leaving a little bit around all the edges.
You NEED to leave a little bit, trust me.
Then I ironed the Mickey Mouse on the black felt. And Carefully cut out the design with some really sharp scissors.
(Sorry for the horrendous lighting in this pic, eeeek!)
Then I peeled off the backing to the Heat & Bond, and ironed it onto to my sweatshirt.
Time to get sewing.
I used a Zig Zag stitch, but a regular stitch would work fine too!
Sew all the way around the applique.
At this point I felt like something was missing.
How about a Super Girly Touch, a bow!
I folded the ribbon,
Took a needle and thread and sewed 2 stitches from the top of the bow, to the bottom of the bow,
and then pulled the thread to cinch it up.
I had to use a few more stitches to keep the bow from un-cinching,
and then I sewed it on the
She loved it!
Since it was so easy I decided to add one to the hood as well,
you know, for good measure.
Disney here we come!
