New Dress A Day wannabe – Run Disney gear

My roommate and a friend are in Disneyland right now resting up from the Dumbo Double Dare challenge. The challenge was to complete a 10K on Saturday and a 1/2 marathon on Sunday.

For the 10K they wanted some matching outfits. While I can’t honestly bring myself to dress up for any runs, I’ll participate in sewing some outfits!

They chose Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum!

Step 1 – my roommate buys about 2 yards of white felt. We needed about 12″ squares.

Step 2 – we pinned 2 rectangles of felt to the collar.

Step 3 – we turned the shirts inside out and sewed the felt on. This method was WAY EASIER than trying to cut the felt to the collar circle size.

After sewing, we trimmed off the access.

We also turned the rectangles into and ovaly shape, just a freeform cut.

Step 4 – we cut out a template for a bow. ย Basically it was just a curvy rectangle. ย Then we used a skinny piece of felt to tie it on the middle.


Step 5 – hand stitch the bows on, and ta-da!

Ok, ok … this shirt isn’t really mine. I’m just a lovely model.

Don’t they look great at 4am?!? ๐Ÿ™‚
