M-I-C...wait, that's not right...M-O-U-S-E

I'm pretty sure I said I'd post this last week and then never got to it, but here it is now. A few months ago, my aunt sent me a picture of a baby girl in a crocheted Minnie Mouse outfit and asked if I could make something similar. It wasn't something I'd normally do, but a) my aunt asked me and b) it looked easy enough, so I said sure. I changed it up a bit from the picture (which I would post if I had a source for it, but I don't so I'm not). I added a ruffle to the skirt and changed the color of the shoes (I really wanted to make yellow shoes, but didn't have the right color yarn). I had to make it mine so I didn't feel like I was copying the picture completely.

Making the diaper cover gave me an idea about and add on item to something I already make and now I'm working on a cute little set of my own. The only trouble I had with this was deciding on how big to make the waist of the skirt. I don't have any kids, so I have little experience in sizing things babies and kids. I ended restarting the skirt a couple of times before I finally got it to a size I liked.

My aunt made sure to let me know that the recipient and everyone else loved the outfit. Yay! A couple of other people let me know it was pretty cute too. I don't know; I might have to make this something I add to the shop later. Which I really need to update over the next couple of weeks. Something to add to my to do list.

What have you guys been working or not working on?
