The original Disney Princess; The Queen Princess; The one, the only... Minnie Mouse! I've said it before, and I stick to my words. No other Disney character can come close. Minnie was created/born in the year 1928 by Walt Disney, and has been a loving favorite ever since.
Look at her, still beautiful at 82 years old.
Minnie was the focus of my most recent "Big Project" A cross stitched on crochet blanket that will keep a special little girl warm for years and years and years to come. I like to make these crochet blankets because they are special and super durable. I especially like the fact that you can throw them in the washer and dryer and not have to worry about shrinkage, color bleeding, or fading.
Read on... I'll show you how this was made

It all started with an idea, an old Leisure Arts pattern book, and 2 lbs of white yarn.
After about a week, I was ready to create art on my canvas. X after X after X, Minnie's face began to take form.
Her signature hair bow accessory is affixed, her eyes are looking bright, and I see a smile coming through, it's time to get dressed. Instead of the purple dress we see in the pattern, whadda' you say we give her something even more feminine, like a dress in soft pink with white polka dots?
Oh my! A girl's gotta have her shoes, right?
Looking good Minnie !
