A Cape fit for a Princess!

Another birthday! Millie turned 5 on Sunday. I asked my sister-in-law for gift ideas. She likes dress up, teacher’s chalk (skinny sticks!), play doh, books…nothing hit me. Then Kelley texted me this…

She is Elsa from Frozen. BINGO! I found an easy cape pattern idea from +Kylie Harris at http://www.thehowtomom.com/2014/01/frozen-elsa-cape-and-anna-cloak-diy.html?m=1.
Hancock Fabrics had some shimmery sheer turquoise blue fabric that was perfect for an ice princess! I made the wand too, a wooden dowel wrapped in satin ribbon, ribbon dangles and Christmas snowflake ornaments for the wand tip. 
I made the chalkboard face-in-the-hole boards too.

These were sooooo cool! I got the idea from +Mandy Beyeler at http://www.sugarbeecrafts.com/2014/04/diy-chalkboard-face-in-hole.html. She used chalkboard foam board, but I couldn’t find any in this town! I spray painted black foam board with chalkboard paint and decorated frames with paint pens and “gems”. Turned out perfect!
I think they are happy little girls!
