Are you a Disney fan or know one? Do you love to craft, sew or DIY? Then you might love today’s article! I’m sharing with you more than 25 of my favorite Disney DIY projects! Everything from DIY Disney family shirts to how to make Disney purses.
Last month I was scouring the web looking for DIY Disney craft and sewing projects. I have a friend who loves Disney just as much (possibly more) than me and I was looking for an idea to make her a birthday gift. In the end, I decided on a set of Drawstring Travel Bags made from Disney Fabric (which I have yet to finish and give her, *yikes*).

While I was searching for the projects, I came across so many cute ideas that I thought I’d share a few of the ones that I found with you today.

We Love Disney, I’m guessing you do too
We are headed out on a Disney Cruise for Spring Break. I’m excited and sad all at the same time. We’re excited that we get to go, but sad because this might be our last Spring Break with our younger kids.
Next year they are Seniors and who knows what we will be doing then (looking for college apartments I’m guessing). Since this might be our last cruise as a family for a little bit, I’m also planning on making a few of these fun ideas for myself! You’ve got to soak up all of the wonderful childhood stuff with your kids as long as you can!
To help you out, I’ve broken down the DIY Disney projects by category! Most of the projects are from this blog, but many are from other DIY and Craft blogs.
