With Mickey Mouse turning 90 this year, I think it is no surprise that children (and adults) have loved him and the other Disney characters for years and years. So why not celebrate by creating beautiful Disney arts and crafts?!

It is so neat to look back on the pictures and scenes of the early days of Mickey Mouse and friends. The book walks you through a step by step guide of drawing Mickey and Friends. It offers tips along the way as well as real-life scenes of the animation timeline for each decade. It is amazing to see the transformations through the years!
There are instructions and steps for how to draw head poses for each character as well as full body poses.
The Learn to Draw Mickey Mouse and Friends book is full of interesting information about the Disney characters’ personality and design starting with the “then” (1920’s) all the way to now.

Disney Cross Stitch Creations
Cross stitch brings back fond memories from my childhood. It is something that I did quite often with my Grandma. We would turn the designs into pillows or towels or we could even frame it if we wanted to! Cross stitch creations can really be used in any way you choose! Let your imagination run and create any handmade item you desire!
The Disney Cross Stitch Creations kit comes with two pieces of aida fabric, seven colors of thread, an embroidery needle, and an embroidery hoop. It also comes with an instruction book that explains how to cross stitch. There are 12 Disney cross stitch patterns included in the book as well.
The materials in this kit are enough to create the cross stitch creation of Winnie-the-Pooh and Steamboat Willie.
You can always purchase more materials in order to use the rest of the patterns. There is a list of materials needed in the book on page 6.
I love that the book categorizes the creations by Easy, Medium, and Advanced. That way you know what you are getting into before you begin your design. This is also beneficial if you are helping a child learn to cross stitch their favorite Disney character!
Whether you are a cross stitch pro, looking to learn, or looking to teach your child how to cross stitch, this kit is a great way to get started with beautiful Disney designs!
You could give the kit as a gift or purchase the kit and make items to give as gifts. Either way, this Disney Cross Stitch Creations kit is something that is fun to have! You can purchase it on Amazon or on QuartoKnows.com
