My son (5)  has a bday party to go to tomorrow for one of his classmates. This is the first girl classmate that has invited him to a party this year. When I called her mom to see what types of things she was into, she told me she LOVES to dress up like a princess. I asked her if handmade gifts were welcome or if they'd prefer store bought and she told me they LOVE handmade stuff, so I got all excited about making a little girl something all princessy! I don't get to do that very often since I only have 3 boys!

So I went and bought some tulling, pulled out this pink shirt that has been sitting in my craft bin for a year (bought it on clearance for .50) and grabbed the felt.

The end result is ...
A princess crown. It is yellow (golden) on one side and purple with embroidered flowers on the other side.

A shirt with the letter "M" sewn on with sequins.

A pink & purple princess skirt/tutu made out of tulling.

I'm so hoping Princess Mia enjoys her gifts tomorrow!

That is sooo cute! I can't wait to make similar things for my kids (that aren't even a speck on the horizon yet). Also, its not a crafty thing, but since her name is Mia, and she likes Princess things, she might like the movie "The Princess Diaries". If you haven't seen it, the girl's name is Mia, and she finds out that she's actually a princess. It's a cute movie. Great job on the tutu, it's so cute!
