My Little Apple Head

Made this little version of my apple head I made for my profile photo purpose.

From my earlier post of Trip to California Sneak Peek, I made my version of Roaming Gnome to take him with me to take photos of places we traveled.

Pattern is made up by me so there's no "exact" shape to follow the pattern. The head is standard 4-piece sphere pattern that you can find online.

Little Apple Head Materials:
- Red felt (head and body)
- Green felt (leaf)
- Brown felt (stem)
- Fabric scissors
- Sewing threads: red, green, brown
- Crochet thread: black
- Sewing machine
- Sewing needle
- Cotton for stuffing
- Fabric fuse
- Glue gun

Pixar Parades

Usually when I hear parade it's the best time to either get on the rides that has long lines or grab food/drinks that usually have waiting time.

But not this time.
You know the deal anything Pixar, we'll go see anything!


Pixar Play Parade
New parade they have for Pixar Fest! Starts every 6pm with all Pixar theme.
Anyone who heard the music for this parade, I swear I had the song stuck in my head for a little too long. Then eventually It's a Small World took over but that was also hypnotizing.

Every detail was amazing for this parade, fun and colorful...

This parade was beautiful. People were mentioning Fantasmic was one of the best show but this was by far the best one. Couldn't really get into it when Sorcerer Mickey was still being unwise and still makes stupid decisions.

It was unfortunate we couldn't watch World Of Color to compare but again, this had another Pixar theme so anything goes.

Night photos are always challenging for me. I realized afterwards that we should sat in the area that has more light in the surroundings so I can capture it easier. But it was either that or get the front seat with better view.
