I found this vintage Mickey fabric in a bag of fabric someone donated to a church activity years ago.
They said I could have anything in the bag.
Really. They did.
I didn't steal it.
Anyway, I wanted to use it in a quilt, since there just wasn't very much of it. I've been hanging on to it for years.
And then the perfect opportunity presented itself. Some friends of ours were having their first baby and they are fellow Disney Freaks.
(Well, I say "fellow," because I put myself in the same class as my husband who is, let's just say, a bit of a Disney Freak. I used that term affectionately. And my husband and I are ONE, after all. So I guess if he's a DF, I have to be. Though perhaps I'm more of a DF by marriage than by blood.)
So...I made them this quilt.
A little bit Mickey and whole lot of filler fabric.
I didnt' know what gender the baby was going to be when I made it so I tried to make it for either. They ended up having a girl, which I think is perfect for this Mickey and Minnie inspired quilt.
And let me just say, their reaction made the time, effort and the giving-away-my-cute-vintage-fabric sooooo worth it. They were very thankful and love the quilt.
Let me just say, the reaction to a homemade gift (or any gift, for that matter) can really mean a lot to the giver. Thanks for liking my quilt, friends. It was a joy to make it for you and exciting to give it. And ...you're baby is pretty stinkin' cute too. :)
