A Sneaky Little Rainbow

This morning on our way to church I wanted to snap some pics of my daughter in a dress I made her. I made a bunch more for her cousins who went to Disney over Thanksgiving break and wanted her to have one as well.

Tonight I went to open up the pics and lo and behold most of them had caught a little rainbow from the sunlight.

It was such a nice surprise! I was also surprised some of these came out okay because princess would not stop moving for me! The little stinker :)

And for her cousins I made these:

The younger girls got a shirt and leggings.

I simply cut off the bottom of t-shirts and added the fabric.

I did the same thing with the leggings. I just cut off the bottom and added the ruffled fabric.

I did a circle applique with a Minnie Mouse silhouette applique on top (I found the silhouette doing a google image search). Then I added a simple little bow to it.

Then for the two older girls, I just added fabric to the bottom so it would be a more mature Minnie Mouse inspired top. I wasn’t quite sure it they would want the applique on their clothing at their age :)

    love it! a few bucks in supplies and bam, you have a boutique outfit! In my area little girls are all decked out each day (add a huge hair bow) like that and their parents are spending big bucks on those outfits!

    Those are all so beautiful! You did an amazing job. And the rainbow was a beautiful surprise!

    As a side note, I also love your little one’s pink shoes with the bow in the back, do you mind my asking where they are from? Thanks!

    Is this too hard for a beginner? Do you have a tutorial for how to do this or could you recommend what size to cut the fabric? Also, do you have a tutorial for an appliqué like that one for a beginner? Thank you!
