Minnie Mouse Birthday Skirt

I wanted to make Smiley a festive little outfit for her birthday.  Since she was having a Minnie Mouse b-day party, (you can see the celebration here and a cupcake tutorial here) I went with a Minnie Mouse skirt.

Nope, I didn't take any pictures of the process ~ oh well, it is super easy!

I wanted something Minnie Mouse~ish, with out being a Minnie Mouse costume.

I purchased an inexpensive pink cotton skirt at Target for $4.00 (must have been on sale, because the website has it for $8.00)

Pulled an old t-shirt of mine, out of a box just waiting to be repurposed.


I cut circles out of the white t-shirt.
Randomly placed them onto the skirt and.......
sewed them on!

For the shirt, I pulled out a long-sleeved t-shirt already in Smiley's closet.  Purchased iron on letters from JoAnn's (with a 40% off coupon ~ of course) ~ and ironed them on (I couldn't find the exact ones online).

When I showed Smiley in the morning ~ the first thing she said was "MINNIE"

Yay ~ success!

Have a great day!
