From http://myamericanconfessions.blogspot.com/2012/07/friday-diy-minnie-mouse-baby-onesie.html

*1 small piece of black felt
*1 white baby onesie
*1 bottle of red fabric paint
*1 bottle of white fabric paint
*Foam paint brush
*Masking tape


Step 1:
Using your masking tape, outline the shape of a basic dress on your white onesie. You can see the form I used (to do the curved section, just use lots of very small pieces of masking tape and angle each one slightly). Make sure that the tape is VERY securely attached.

Step 2:
Paint the inside of your dress shape using the red paint; allow to dry (3-5 hours, or until dry to the touch)

Step :
Peel off the paint form. Dip the end of your paint brush into the white paint and make polka dots all over the dress form. Next, using the same motion, make a 'lace' top, bottom, and belt to the dress by connected the dots together. Allow to dry. (3-5 hours or until dry to the touch).

Step 4:
Cut a small, basic Mickey Mouse form out of the black felt and attach it to one of the top corners of the 'dress' on the onesie, either by securing it with a few stitches, or by hot-gluing it on.

Your Minnie Mouse onesie is DONE! Now, let's make that headband!


*Black stretch headband
*Red, black thread and needle
*1 small piece of black felt
*1 small piece of red felt
*1 bottle of white fabric paint
*Foam paint brush

Step 1:
Cut two ear-shaped pieces of fabric. (I found it was easiest to fold the felt in half, cut a circle [by cutting a half circle and unfolding it), then cuting an extra slice of the bottom to give them this shape). Fold the bottom slightly in half to create a cupped ear look, and then sew the bottom onto the headband, making them look like ears.

Step 2:
Cut out a small bow-shaped piece of red felt. Dot it with white paint using the bottom of the paint brush to make polka dots. Allow to dry 3-4 hours, then stitch it onto the base of one of the ears.

Voila! An adorable Minnie Mouse outfit. Take your little girl to Disneyland wearing it. Wink
