M-I-C...K-E-Y

I am so excited about out trip to Disney World for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas party, yea!! We had planned to go a couple weeks ago, but as our luck would have it the girls came down with a horrible stomach bug the very night before. Then I got it the following night and my husband a week later....ugh it was the worst. Hopefully, we have paid our dues and will not be sick for a VERY VERY VERY long time.

Thankfully, the people at Disney were very understanding and allowed me to change our ticket dates. So tomorrow night is the night! And it worked out because my sisters are both going too. All of the cousins are going to have a blast together!

Of course I had to make the girls outfits to wear...

I chose a short sleeve shirts (Target) thinking that the weather was going to be about 75 degrees. Now it's freezing...well from what we are used to. I think the low is going to be 45 degrees....Brrr. But I can just stick a long sleeve T underneath. And I am sure they will have a coat, hat and mittens....so basically you probably won't even see their outfits, but it's the thought that counts...right? And I had fun making them:)

I used Word to create the image. All I did was stack circles upon circles. I played with the positioning and colors. Carson's image has big white polka dots around the perimeter and Clara's small white polka dots. I did this to tie the design in with their pants, which were made with fabric modeled after Minnie's famous red dress. The Santa hat image on Mickey's head was found here. I used super soft iron on transfers from Dharma Trading Company. And they are...super soft! After creating the image you have to reverse it, print it, cut it out and iron.
Ta-Da!!
I wanted to do a double ruffle on their pants and ran out of the fabric with large white polka-dots so I had to improvise. I used a small white dot fabric. I like that there is some variation.
My little angels were not in the picture taking mood earlier when I was trying their outfits on them. Hopefully, they will cooperate tomorrow and I can snap a few photos. Hope everyone is having a great night!! Thanks for stopping by!
