Step 1: I looked at Walmart, Target, and Hobby Lobby for a solid black long sleeve and solid red onesie. You can buy white onesies in every size and shape, but solid colors are hard to come by. I decided to waste no more time on my feet looking and resorted to buying them online. I got them from Rock Bottom T-shirts for about $5 each plus shipping. So here is the hardest part of the whole project.....cut each onesie in half and sew together! For those sewing virgins I used a rotary cuter, rotary mat, and a ruler to make sure my cut on both the red and black onesie was straight and even. I then turned the onesies wrong side out and used straight pins to pin it together. I used a standard straight stitch and used 1/4 inch seam allowance (b/c I'm used to quilting and don't know any different). I didn't feel like hemming the edge since he was only going to be wearing it for a couple of hours so I just did a zig zag stitch around the edge and BAM! You got yourself a Mickey Mouse outfit. Less than 30 mins of work.
Step 2: I bought 1 square of white felt at Hobby Lobby for .25 cents. I found something to use as a tracer (I used Scott's Chick-Fil-A name tag) and cut out 2 ovals of white felt. I then used fabric glue to glue them onto the onesie. 5 mins of work.
Step 3: The ears. Now here is where things got kinda complicated because I hit a road block. I looked for a standard black head band at Target. I wanted one out that didn't have any teeth and that wasn't made out of hard plastic because I didn't want it hurting his head. They had only had one that met these qualifications, but it had a big flower on top. I bought it anyways and thought I would just pull the flower off. As you may guess, the flower was a lot harder to remove than I thought and it left behind an ugly spot of glue that was an eye sore to the head band. So I improvised. I covered the head band in black felt! Luckily, there is youtube tutorial on how to do this. How to make Mickey Mouse ears I could write a whole paragraph on how I made the ears but if you really want to know I did everything in the YouTube video.
