Happy Monday and happy April! My birthday month has officially begun and I couldn’t be happier. To celebrate my birthday I’m going to Disneyland next week. So in honor of that trip, I wanted to do a little simple Disney DIY. Now listen, I am no seamstress but I’ve been seeing this cute DIY all over my Instagram. People have been taking the Disney Pixar Turning Red plush blanket bag and turning it into a plush crossbody bag.
When I first saw this plush bag I was curious why Disney didn’t make it into a crossbody because they’ve done it before with Duffy, Winnie the Pooh, etc. I held off from buying the bag because I didn’t want to have to carry it around. Then I saw so many people turning them into crossbody bags and I was like “hey, that’s so smart!”
So the question is, was making this crossbody really as easy as everyone made it seem?
🎶 “What is this feeling. So sudden and new? I felt the moment I laid eyes on you!”. 🎶
I vividly remember that bright summer day back in 2006 when I first truly feel in love with Broadway. It was a Wednesday and I was getting ready to see my first ever Broadway show: Wicked. Ever since I was a kid I had a special connection to The Wizard of Oz. And after watching Idina Menzel’s speculator 2004 Tony’s performance, I knew I HAD to see Wicked as soon as it opened in Chicago.
12 years later and my love for the theatre has only grown stronger. Even though Wicked was the first Broadway musical I saw, my love for Broadway started much earlier. I guess you could say I got my love of Broadway from my mom. Back when she lived in London (which is where my older sister was born) my mom saw the Original West End productions of Les Misérables and Cats.
How lucky is she?!
