Not Your Everyday Princess

Warning!!!! Today’s post is heavy with cuteness overload in the form of pictures.  Proceed at your own risk!

When I was a little girl I was a lot like other little girls.  I loved to play dress up and I pretended to be a princess.  But my friends would always tell me that I had to be the prince instead because I acted more like a boy.

Okay, I guess I may have been a bit of tomboy when it came to playtime.  But I still loved to dress up!

Growing up in the 80s I don’t remember princesses being so pink and glittery. Maybe they were but I don’t remember it.  I remember princesses like Leia in Star Wars who fought alongside the boys. She will always have a special place in my heart.

When I saw this tutorial from Stuff Susie Made for a Princess Leia Blankie, I knew I had to make it.

I have 3 girls of my own and I hope that I have always taught them that if they want to be princesses then that is fine.  But be a princess who is try to yourself.

The youngest is a little old for a blankie but she has claimed this project as her own.  She says its her new dolly.

She loves to hijack my photo shoots.

And it does my crafter’s heart good to see my work loved and appreciated.

Check out the tutorial for that special Princess lover in your life if you’d like.

Most of all keep on crafting!
