Update!

Hello! I thought you might be interested in an update since we've been even more absent that usual lately.
I've been busy! But not with crafting or blogging(obviously). With, you know, real life, real people, that kind of thing. I've been praying for more opportunities to serve others, and God has certainly answered that prayer. It feels good to be useful! 

But I have sewn a few things that I'd love to share! Paige has a bin full of dress-up necklaces, tiaras and hats, but no dresses! So I borrowed a friend's princess dress and used it to make this one for Paige:

I also made these two in a larger size (because all her friends are a little older)
So she can play dress-up now! yay!! (Yes I'm living through my daughter...)
I've made a few other trinkets and gifts as well, but I only thought to take photos of these two:
(Really wanted to keep that black headband for myself!)
But the last two days Paige has had a fever and we've been spending them laying low.
What are we doing right this minute? Watching Cinderella on the other moniter. 
Hello! (WARNING: No makeup!!)

Good to "see" you all, and I've got a tutorial I'm working on, so I'll see you soon!

  3. It's good to see you post every now and then . . . I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss your blog! Those dress-up clothes are gorgeous and I want some in my size ;-)

  4. It's that time of year! My little man (20 months old) has pinkeye and an ear infection, as well as the cold symptoms. Luckily, as soon as we started his antibiotics he seems to be feeling almost-normal (with a little Horton Hears a Who added in). And no makeup? Ha! I JUST NOW finally showered and changed out of the clothes I have been wearing for 2 1/2 days - straight. I'm talking as pajamas and everything. (Okay okay, I may also have a cold, and be pregnant, but still, that's...ugh.) I hope Paige is feeling better soon and that you aren't going too stir-crazy!

  11. The princess dress-up dresses are lovely! My daughter is always asking for a long, princess version of the skirts I've been making her but, so far, I haven't had the confidence to try. If you ever get time for a tutorial on dress up clothes I'm sure I'm not the only one who would love it!
    Hope Paige is feeling better. Best wishes.

  12. I hope Paige feels better soon! My kids have both been sick lately, yesterday I took my son in for a crazy case of hives (covered all but half of his face, why one half of his face remained normal, I have no idea) and while there we found out he has RSV. (Not so fun)
    The princess dresses are fantastic!

  25. First, I hope your daughter is feeling better. Second, those princesses dresses are wonderful. My daughter has been asking me to make her one. Any tips? Third, I love the pink skirt with the headband!! Did you use a pattern and if so, would you mind sharing which one you used?

    ReplyDelete
  26. You are amazing Disney, I lvoe those pretty dresses! God bless you, hope baby girl gets better soon. =)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Stephanie: Thank you! I didn't use a pattern for the skirt, sorry, I just kind of winged it. As far as the dress-up dresses go, I was thinking about making a pattern for them, if anyone thinks that would be handy. They weren't difficult, I made all three in the same day. Hopefully I can get that done before too long!

  31. Hi Disney, such beautiful dresses! I hope Paige is feeling better. I missed you!

  32. Those dresses are so beautiful! My mom had a dresser drawer full of dress up clothes for me and that was my absolute favorite. She didn't make MY dress up clothes, but she did make tons of clothes (including a blue satin dress and faux fur coat) for my Cabbage Patch doll. I still treasure them.

  43. Those dresses are super adorable! You should make a big girl version for yourself. It's perfectly fine for women of all ages to play dress up. At least that's what I tell myself! I'll keep Paige in my prayers.

    You're such an inspiration, Disney! Thank you for sharing your faith, your creativity, and your kindness with everyone.
