My Encounter with a Mouse

Last year I had the pleasure of planning a baby shower for a dear friend - I wrote about it here. This past weekend her baby turned 1, but I'm still in denial that an entire year has past! My friend, much like myself, is a theme-girl and her daughter's birthday party theme was Minnie Mouse.

I was honored to be asked to make something for the big event and immersed myself in research. I rarely have the opportunity to make products that include licensed characters (never for money and only for friends), so this was a treat. I decided to make a door sign similar to the ones I sell in my Etsy shop. Here's the result...

I never knew Minnie had such long eyelashes - I'm thinking they're fake!

This project also gave me the opportunity to try a new technique - printing on burlap fabric. It was super easy, which of course means that you'll be seeing a lot more burlap from me!
