Today we went to a newly renovated Disney Store to make a return and find a bathing suit for our Disney trip. Our store didn't have much to choose from in my oldest daughters size and I got her a bathing suit during the 25% off sale, but I thought it would cover her belly and it didn't! She doesn't like her belly to show, but I thought for potty training purposes a two piece would be best. So we picked out another suit and while we were there they had a little dance session. My girls love to dance and even though there were lots of little kids around only three kids danced. At the end everyone who danced and watched got a foam mic (seen in the cast members hand during the dance) My girls love them and we had someone at another store ask how we got them! So next time you are the Disney Store stick around for the dancing! You never know when you might get a little something!Pin It

Pinterest which have them inspired me to go and make something! One idea was my Mickey Damask shirts - tutorial found here - Mickey Damask shirt I love how they turned out and can't wait to wear them! The pin on Pinterest wasn't the same fabric or with a bow, but I made it my own and tried something new!

|We left a few prints on this mirror! She had mouth prints, nose prints and finger prints! But she loved it!!|
|Doing some shopping - good choice!|

I love Damask and wanted to make multiple shirts for our upcoming trip to Disney in May. I had some left over fabric and traced a Mickey head. I added stabilizer, which is stiffer backing, that makes it easier to sew and doesn't move around so much. I sprayed 505 on my head after cutting off the excess - or you could pin it or glue it with a glue stick to hold in place temporarily if you don't have 505. Cut off the excess stabilizer. I didn't on my first one and it looked funny around the edges and I colored it with a Sharpie to blend it in! Sew the edges around and voila! An adorable shirt! I added a little bow to my two daughters shirts, but for my shirt I may not...haven't decided yet. I got them at Hobby Lobby 3 in a pack for cheap! This project could be used with any type of fabric which is nice and wasn't too costly either! The shirts I found at Walmart for $3.88 and my shirts was $4.88. Not too bad!
If you try this, I'd love to see your creations!

I fell in love with these two precious bunnies! How could a momma resist sticking these in an Easter basket or giving them beforehand. Even when my kids are grown and gone from home, I could see myself decorating for Easter with these. Also, they smell! Like CHOCOLATE! How cool is that! Just thought I'd share this awesome deal! They are $7.50 with a $25 purchase or $14.50 otherwise.

OMG! Momma could have gone crazy today if she had a shopping spree at the Disney Store! The new line came out Sunday evening and there are tons of cute stuff out! My favorite thing is the new miniature princesses and Tinkerbell that they came out with. My three yr old was in Heaven! She could all of them but Pocahontas and Rapunzel, but we eventually found all the set! She doesn't know that she's getting them, but when we go to Disney a fairy (mommy) is going to visit her each night a bring her a special something! I though a couple of these would be perfect for that! She'll probably get one in her Easter basket as well as little sister's Easter basket too!
|New beach tote that mommy loved and some cute flip flops|

|All swimsuit accessories are 25%off when you purchase a suit!|

See anything you love? Go to your store soon and check out all the cute new stuff! I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't have a store close by, but you might be able to find this same stuff on the Disney Store website too! Maybe not for some of the same deal prices though!
There is a lot more I could've taken pictures of, but these are just a few to wet your whistle!

|Finished product - Some are good...others are not so good!|

|Mickey head sticking up and putting on multiple bands|
|This one I swirled and then banded|
Learn from my mistakes!
#1 - put rubber bands on tightly
#2 - Cover the Mickey head after dyeing to ensure no other color gets on with Saran wrap
#3 - use only one or two colors
#4 - properly dissolve the dye with the salt in a bowl of warm water
#5 - use gloves!
Up close view of the shirts -
|This shirt faded terribly and looks horrible in person!|
Redo for sure!
|This shirt I can live with!|
|Little girl #1 - Will redo - too muddy of colors!|
|My shirt - colors on the sleeve are gross,|
but love the Mickey heads and how they look!
|Little girl shirt - Ugh!|
|My Aunt's shirt - I like!|
|We used plastic tubs to protect the ground and just rinsed between shirts.|
