I was caught up in the excitement as well. My little ones are no longer little (youngest 20 oldest 24---4 altogether), but I have made my share of Batmans, Spidermans, Cinderella and Ballerinas--you get the picture. I didn't make any costumes, but I found myself ordering the elusive fabric in 3 different designs. The excitement was just as thrilling when the box arrived with my new treasures. But then reality set in. My daughters (20 &21) love the movie, but would they really want to walk around their college campuses with a tote or purse made out of themed material? I didn't thnk so.
I decided to make a few child sized totes (no pattern, just made it up as I went along) first out of the fabric with all the characters. Next up was Olaf. he just brings a smile to your face, you have to be happy when working with his themed fabric. I had made a little gym bag/purse out of it. When my 20 yr old saw it, she got excited. She asked me if I could make something bigger for her that would fit her college books. She even used the old "it would make me happy during studying for finals". How could a mom say no? Thus the backpack/purse was created and mailed off. Olaf does appeal to all ages!
I still have to find homes for some of what I have created (the totes are adopted) but I still have a lot of Frozen fabric to Create with!
