Lee-Scott Cheerleader. This little number will serve double duty when we can use it next year at cheer camp! All fabrics from Opelika Sewing Center. I think pattern is Simplicity. I know this pattern was more hard than the Elvis costume of 2007!!! I cut out a size 4 and then added my own darts. Then I had to add darts to the darts! Let's just say...I nearly cussed. Ribbon is from Hobby Lobby for the hairbows. Shoes are from JCPenneys.

Of course we have been an all 'Cars' themed life around here since she saw the movie (thanks Aunt Ginger) in 2008. So she had a cars party when she turned 5 in September. This was the little outfit I made. Red top fabric is from Grandma Peggy's stash and the brow/tan Cars theme fabric is from Walmart in Auburn. the ribbon thru the top is not ribbon but actually a long tie made from the cars fabric.

It was too hot to wear the pants on the Disney trip so she wanted to wear it to her first day back to school from Disney...however it was chilly...but she insisted. This is a Walmart tee, I added the fabric angel wings and made the pants, all fabrics from Hobby Lobby. Zebra bows to match, ribbon from Opelika Sewing Center. It is hard to tell but this is a mickeyhead with a safari hat on.

With Pooh-Cars themed pillowcase top, fabric from Walmart and Hobby Lobby. This fabric sadly faded...the downfall of WallyWorld fabric!
With the Cars Mickey ears on and her little turtle Squirt-this is a red pillowcase top with e cutout of cars fabric with Speed in a rectangular applique (MW+). It has matching pants but it was way to hot to wear them so we purchased these shorts to wear, they too are Cars theme.
With Goofy-you can't see this but it is an aplique of a little asian gilr with mickey ears on (Nobbie Neez designs), a tee from Target and the pants are made with fabric from Kids Closet our local Smock Shop. Sadly that fabric faded some too with washing. But it is ultra soft.
Red polka dotted dress, forget where fabric is from, martha pullen aline, reversible until i put the mickey applique all the way thru.
Navy button shirt-I sewed these buttons, whcih made the tee very heavy abd added a little bow to make it a wee more feminine. the pants are from Gymboree. Sorry you can't really see the buttons, but they are in the silhoette of mickey head.
