Tangled ideas for your daughter that loves Rapunzel

 My daughter has a birthday coming up in the next couple of weeks and she has asked for a TANGLED birthday.  And since the movie comes out on DVD next week, we both have had Tangled on our minds :)  I love the movie.  We saw it on Christmas Eve and it's a new favorite of mine.
 So for her birthday I made a few small Tangled gifts that she can enjoy.  I made a fleece tie pillow....and a neck pillow.  One for the car and one she can use to watch the movie. 
 She is also getting a small Tangled doll as well as a full size doll and I wanted to make her something that she could carry all of her doll stuff in.  So I made a small tote bag the same size as the larger doll (using this tutorial that I have used many times) with Tangled fabric that I found at Joann's. I can just see her carrying this around with her......everywhere!! 
 For the fleece pillow, take your pillow form, cut out 2 pieces of fleece just larger then the pillow form.  Cut out squares from each corner then cut strips through both layers that you will then tie.  Tie 3 sides together first, then insert the pillow form and then tie the last side.

 There you have it, a fun and simple pillow to go with the movie.  And when your daughter out grows her obsession with Rapunzel, you can simply untie the fleece and make a different pillow :)
I think these will be a great distraction for her......she has to wait until Easter for the movie.

How cute! I think I have to make your darling pillow for my little girls. We too love the movie and can't wait to purchase it. You should stop by my blog where I have a link to a darling Tangled Tower made out of recycled cardboard boxes. I would also love for you to feature this post on my link up party if you get a chance.
Take care,
