My family loves Disney World! It has been a special place to visit since my husband and I were first married 28 years ago. We have vacationed there many times since our daughters were little. It really is a magical place to visit.
Our daughter, Kelsie, has a special bond with Disney since she graduated from college last May. She worked there this past year with the Disney college internship program. She absolutely LOVED IT!! When she returned home this past January, she had lots of goodies that she bought for some of her friends who are still in school. This past weekend, there was a performance at the university and Kelsie wanted to give all the girls their Disney gifts. Kelsie wanted a special bag for all the presents and looked for inspiration on Pinterest. Here's our version made from felt and a Disney poster!!!
Disney Princess Gift Bags...
Come in to see how quick and easy they are to make. You could really adapt this to any theme for any party or occasion.
I searched the craft store and found that the 33 cent sheets of felt were the best and cheapest idea to make the bags for the princess dresses. You can find all the colors you need and felt is easy to work with...sewing or gluing.
Fold over the side and sew or glue the long side and across the bottom.
To help the "dress" bag stand up, I sewed in boxed corners. Just pinch up the bottom seam to match the side seams.
Pin and sew across about an inch or so away from the point.
They will look like this.
This is the bottom turned right side out.
The bag is done. Felt is perfect, because you don't have to finish the edge and it's sturdy enough to stand on it's own.
Now, for the Princess image...we purchases a Disney poster at Michael's Craft Store, but you can always use coloring books, post cards etc.
Make a bag to match the dresses of all the Princesses.
Here are all the colors we used.
I cut out each figure from the poster and taped a skewer to the back for support. You could mount them on cardboard too.
Place your goodies in the bag, slip in the princess cut out and tie a matching ribbon around the bag to close and pleat the dress.
Here they all are, ready to go!
Kelsie made these last 2 after I went to work, so I didn't get a group picture of them. She needed 2 more bags and had to get a coloring book from a friend who has a little girl who was willing to "share". Thanks Quinn!!
Anna and Tinkerbell are ready to go!!
Hope you like this project. Great to make for that little princess in your life who is a big Disney fan too!!
Thanks for stopping by,
