the post where kim creates yet another Disney item of clothing from a coloring book
I like Disney coloring books. They provide me with simple lines to copy and really make something unique. You may remember the first wearable crafting endeavor with the Sleeping Beauty Castle bleach shirt circa January 2009. Then came Dumbo in bleach in September of that year.
Now… let me introduce you to the latest in wearable Disney coloring book clothing for
kid’s resort wear in 2011…
… the Dumbo dress!
Now since I really had no idea how well this would work out, I didn’t take pictures of the entire process. So I guess I’ll have to come back here after we get back and make another applique to share the “how” of everything with you! I mean, Miss L does need an outfit for our next trip back in January!
So I promise to be back with the instructions shortly, and then you can get to making your own coloring book applique’s for anything you want!
[p.s. this is my first applique of any type… so I was definitely pretty nervous about every single step. I’d like to thank my sewing machine for leading me confidently through all the steps of dress creation through to the end of the applique process!]
OMG that is too cute! You did a wonderful job!
That is seriously awesome, Kim! I’m jealous of your skills!
ADORABLE! That is some intense applique right there!!
Very impressive. And totally adorable. I want one. Is 34 too old for a dumbo dress?
Adorable! That dress looks fantastic, and I love the patterned fabric you chose for the ears!

Kim, that is freakin’ adorable!
I am so impressed! If I attempted that, I’d likely sew my fingers to the dress! Can’t wait for the tutorial :)
Ummm did you sew the dress too?? I die. Totally want to make one!! LOVE it.
Um…. I did. Because I’m just plain crazy. ;) But it’s pretty much the simplest dress pattern that exists… so that helps!
SO adorable! Great job making the dress and appliqueing Dumbo onto it. I can’t wait to see you make more cute Disney stuff!
Further cementing your status as the coolest, craftiest, awesomest mom around. ? it!
So adorable!! I love the applique AND the buttons! Such great little details!
such a cute dress – the applique is amazing and i absolutely love those buttons!
