My daughter heard from her Aunt Lauren she was dressing McKenna (Lawson's cousin) as Minnie Mouse. Lawson was convinced from that moment on that she was also going to be Minnie Mouse. Good bye Princesses (thank goodness!) Then my sister, Lauren, asked me if I would make her McKenna's outfit. Our deal we worked out was I make the dresses she bought the material. It was a win-win for both of us. My sister bought the material from fabric.com had it shipped to me. I had a pattern that I could alter for Lawson and my sister purchased a new pattern for McKenna.
My cost...nothing. It cost me time but when I am working on something special for my kids or my niece it is all a labor of love!
Lawson LOVES her Minnie Mouse Costume.
I currently do not have any pictures of McKenna in her costume but I will by Monday. Yippee!! My sister and McKenna are traveling down here as I type. I can't wait to see them and to get the two Minnie Mouse/Mice together. How cute is that going to be???
Moral of my story...bartering is a beautiful thing when you are on a very tight budget!! Thanks, sister!!
