Disney Dudes Valentine Swap

I am really bad at posting about the stuff I have sent for craft swaps, so I am going to try to be more on top of it. This is a package I sent at the beginning of February for the Disney Dudes craft swap, dedicated to all the men of Disney. My partner professed her love of Aladdin so I ran with it. I found this paper-piece pattern from Misha29 and apparently I got lucky to find the Aladdin-esque fabric on Etsy. (I later learned that it’s out of print and super hard to find.) It’s Lizzy House 1001 Peeps, which is delightful. I pulled the background color from the accent in the fabric.

Essentially I made this like a mini quilt but sewed it together with an envelope back and added a pillow form.

Not bad for a street rat, right? His eyes were SO MANY tiny pieces. But totally worth it.

One thing I really enjoy about swaps is finding little extras to include in the package. I recently got a Silhouette Cameo and decided to use that for small extras when I can. My partner included her favorite Aladdin quotes in her questionnaire so I put one on a mug with a little silhouette of the lamp. It turned out so cute.

My most absurdly large extra ever was this Animator’s Collection doll, which is adorable but not exactly tiny. He was on sale when I was doing Christmas shopping at the Disney Store so I just could not resist him to go in the package too. My partner says she loved everything.
