A little Halloween DIY EleStyle - The Mouse Princess


The Mouse Princess

Woohoo!!  It's day 2 of our Halloween costume DIY fun, and we introduce to you...The Mouse Princess, inspired by our Ballerina dress in Fog

The Mouse Princess

Mouse Princess Ears

Materials:
gray and pink fabric (felt is OK)
• s
cissors
• g
lue gun
• plain headband
• sewing supplies (optional, if not gluing)

Step 1: Using our mouse ear template, cut out 2 pieces of the gray fabric material and the 2 pieces of the pink fabric material. If you would like to sew your ears, please cut out the dashed outline. For the no-sew option, cut out the solid outline.

Sewing option - Put together 1 piece of the pink and and 1 piece of the gray and sew along the edge at ¼” seam allowance. Remember to leave the bottom edge open to flip the ear inside out.

No-Sew option: Align 1 gray and 1 pink piece together and glue them together.

Step 3: Repeat step 2 for the other ear, making sure that the colors are reversed (the ears are mirrored).

Step 4: Wrap the base of the ears around a headband and sew or glue them on.

Mouse Princess Tail

Materials:
 
fabric
• ribbon (optional)

For the tail, we chose to make one out of pink fabric using a strip around 4” by 14”. Another option could be to use a ribbon of your choice instead.

Step 1: Fold fabric in half so that the width of the fabric is 2”.

Step 2: Sew along the length edge of the tail, leaving one end open. We sewed diagonally to the center to give the end of the tail a point.

Step 3: Flip it inside out.

Step 4 (optional): Tie a ribbon onto the open end of the tail.

Step 5: Pin the tail to your costume, and have fun!
