Could someone please point me in the right direction. i was gong to try and sew some outfits for my DD and DS, but I had shoulder surgery Dec. 20th and complications since. Hoping that I will be able to do something before our trip in May. I am looking for SWW--minnie mouse shirt---i was going to make a circle skirt. We are eating at Park Faire and Tusker House. Looking for either sets--skirts or short---any clue where to look?

Wow! That is beautiful! Perfect job on the coordinating fabrics. Is that the last of your Japanese fabric? I can't believe how perfect the other fabrics match it.

Off to look for a remnant of wolf fabric that I bought and hid. I had to hide to hide it when I bought it b/c I didn't have time to do anything with it and didn't want dd to see it and constantly beg me to make something. Now I don't know where I hid it

Hi Ladies
I lurked here about two years ago...pulled out my sewing machine that has only been used twice (and when my mom was visiting lol) and decided I was starting to sew...The machine sat out for a few months and I never even put it on a table or took cover off so back into the closet it went lol

I had wanted to make matching out fits for our Jan 2012 trip but DH would not go along and only have a son so didnt need to make dresses...

But now I have a trip planned for June and my sister is coming instead of DH and she is on board for at least a few outfits.

My list of what I want to do keeps growing lol...

3 Lanyards (with star wars fabric)
3 Pillowcases (again star wars fabric)
2 sets adult PJs
1 set kids Pjs
1 Pool robe

and a few shirts...

My question to you ladies. I love all the embroidery and I dont have a machine so I was looking online for some and they are in the $5 range which I would prefer not to pay...especially since some of these shirts Sis and I might not wear outside of Disney. I keep seeing some of you post about doing it by hand. I searched for a tutorial but couldnt find a good one. Can someone point me in the right direction?

I cant believe I found this post I have an addiction to my sewing machine, I seriously need a 12 step program. I leave fr Disneyworld in 24 days and I still have two womens shirts, 2 mens shirts, 3 5 year old girl dresses, 3 4 year old booy shirts and 3 2 year old girl dresses to complete as well as finish a Prince Charming coat and make the pants. I am also in need of 2 more days of outfits which sadly might become iron on transfers. I also need to make the hair bows to go along with all of this, I can do it right? I love seeing what everyone else is doing it give me inspiration. Happy Sewing ladies

Actually I didn't notice that until you pointed it out, but you're right. (Bet you get tired of hearing that -- especially from your kids!)

Please let us know what you find out in terms of the pillowcases.
First, I love the recap of all of the outfits you've made for yourself. So casual, so Disney, so perfect.
<---- pretend they're purple

And you're right, I am excited about my trip. Nine days to go.

I'll update about the pillowcases when I know more. My thought is to make two different sizes and send them both to the GKTW contact person.

I would be interested in doing some pillow cases and will be looking forward to your update. Thanks for keeping us informed.


I go up to Cleveland today to pick up my new machine. I'm excited to get it, but won't have any time to play with it since we're leaving early tomorrow morning to go to Virginia to watch 3 of our grandchildren while our DD and her hubby go away for the weekend. I have been babysitting our neighbor's 3 month old the last two days and I am exhausted!!! I will be babysitting 3 days a week for at least the next year. Hope I survive!!
1. Thank you.

2. I will.

3. My son's girlfriend is from Avon Lake which they tell me is somehwere in the greater Cleveland area.

But she told me that her church made and donated about 500 pillowcases! I was happy that I could help out a little bit. Anyhow, my friend said that volunteering there was one of the best experiences of her life. She is planning to go again next year, with or without her church.
Thanks for making pillowcases. Volunteering at GKTW is on my bucket list.

You are such a prolific sewer. I don't have kids at my elbow every minute, either, but somehow that doesn't seem to translate into sewing more. I did, however make a couple things for my upcoming trip which I hope to "shoot and show" tomorrow.

I love your Chip and Dale outfit. We used to enjoy watching chipmunks in our backyard. I keep meaning to ask Brer Fox if he knows why we haven't seen any lately.

I still have a few pieces of the Famous Black Polka Dot material. I managed to use a few for my string backpack.

Pillowcases will be a great project when you don't have family to sew for anymore. Someday will be fine!

You know, usually I go solo, but since my son (the FILM major) will be joining me, I'll have my own personal photographer. I can't think of anything about taking photos of me and a doll wearing matching outfits that wouldn't appeal to him.

Me + RRR = Happy Son

I'm in the midst of planning our family's vacation to DLR, for March. Time is ticking and I've got to get sewing! I have a DD6 and a DD3 to sew a dress, or two, for.

I'm planning on making peasant type princess dresses for my girls. Fabric shopping is on my list for today. (Twist my arm, right?! :rofl )

Here's a couple of things I've made in the past:

A little Mickey/Minnie free-motion quilting:


Some Mickey tie-dying:


I'll be back, for sure!
Welcome! Look forward to seeing what you make!

Well arlighty then! So I had to make one for my other DGD as well with her favorites.

Selah's cape:


Charlotte's cape:


The letters are glittery, but it doesn't show up on the photos.

Also, DH and I went to the Home and Garden show on Saturday and while he and the friends we went with were busy at a both I found boring, I came across this huge area where they had tons of sewing machines, embroidery machines and everything in between. DH found me deep in conversation with the owner of 3 stores in the Cleveland area who was explaining the latest and greatest. Sooo, long story short, after she demoed a couple of machines for DH and I, I walked away...the owner of a Babylock sewing/embroidery machine!!!! Could not believe it. My Brother 8500 is 12 years old and it was getting frustrating to use. I'm getting a trade in amount for it and am purchasing a unit that was traded in for an upgrade and paying cash brought it more into the realm of possibility. Still plenty of sticker shock, but hey, it was a deal! And my sweet DH didn't even bat an eye. What a guy! I'm going to pick it up today and she wants me to play with it for a while to make sure it's what I want. Of course what I REALLY want is the next one up that will copy your kids or grandkids drawings and stitch them out exactly!!!! That had me tearing up for sure. But, waaaay too rich for my blood. But man, that is a cool feature!
The capes are darling! Maybe once your dgd is wearing hers, your dgs will too. My kids have finally taken to theirs! Phew!

How exciting and wonderful of your dh to encourage you to get a machine! So glad you ended up with an even better one than the original deal! Can't wait to see pics of her!

Each kid gets paired with 1-2 HS students, and I get 3 hours a week kid-free. And the cost is like $6/week for BOTH kids. I can't take credit for this idea, I stole it from pinterest, but the shirts are adult sized, and I plan to take a photo of them for the first day of school every year, and my husband had the idea to have their teachers sign them the last day of school. Of course now I have two shirts I need to keep track of for the next 15 years!


(and yes my son has a black eye on his first day of school. See aforementioned: twin boy.)
That is an awesome idea!

I think I might use the same pattern to make an Alice dress for our upcoming trip to Disneyland.

I used the Carla C Precious Dress pattern. I know alot of people use and like her patterns, and I love that I can print them out right away, and that they are so easy to follow, but I often find them big (especially the easy fit pants). Do you think I might be printing them off scale somehow? My daughter is just shy of 5 and pretty true to size, a bit small, but not super tiny. She measured in the 3 range mostly, so I made a 4 so the arms wouldn't be too tiny, but I honestly think I could have made the 3 and been more than fine. With the easy fit pants, I have to make her a two and then adjust it so it is not as baggy. Am I doing something wrong?


Oh, I just LOVE this dress! Annie was the first musical I ever saw and it holds such a huge place in my heart! How did your dd enjoy it?

Welcome! And good luck getting everything done!


I'm working on some baby gifts of a bib with detachable charms for the first twelve months. I'm making two sets at once, so it's going more slowly than I'd like. Pics when I get them done.

Regards,
C.

Alright so I finally got time to try and figure out my Brother PE770 last friday. My mom tried to figure it out, but it just wasn't working for her no idea why. She was hesitant to try stuff and wouldn't look stuff up so I pretty much started from scratch. I spent thurs night and friday trying to figure it out and getting frustrated that it wasn't working properly. it was nesting spitting out loose stitches etc......

Thanks to a facebook group and here and Loree I was able to get it working properly. Lots of patience. my practice material was too thin and the stabilizer I used sucked. then on sunday it was the bobbins. My order of prewound bobbins hadn't come in yet so I went to the store sunday and bought some and then we started getting somewhere. (Of course the order of 144 bobbins for $60 came on sunday after i ran out to the sewing store sunday and bought janome prewounds , 15 for $15 ) then i dealt with the thread getting caught and bobbins in upside down. Finally on sunday It was working well enough that I started on the appliquees for the dress. I did the bodice and then had to redo after It got caught and nested. Loree put together the design for me! then the appliquees took me the rest of sunday and all day monday. Monday night I got the two shirts done. This am i drove out to V's house and dropped it off. I squished it all into a ziplock since they had no room in their suitcase I was told (I prewarned v's mom more than once that they were coming!) So I am assuming they all made their way to Florida today!

Here they are:
Simply Sweet Dress - 7 appliquees and 3 layers of ruffles (holy moly that was a lot of ruffles!) Super full, I altered the pattern so the pannels were 5 and 10 inches and the width of the skirt was 90 inches.
Front


Back


Close up of the appliquees








V's minnie joy shirt to match with her christmas mickey and minnie patchwork twirl skirt that I forgot to take a picture of.


Last thing I did.
V's sleeping beauty shirt to match with her princess twirl skirt that I forgot to get a picture of.
I absolutely adore this dress. We are going on our 1st Disney Cruise in November. I would love to make these dresses for my two DD's. Did you have a pattern for this dress? If so, where did you purchase it? Any advice or info you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Dana

The Simply Sweet pattern is available on http://www.youcanmakethis.com/ and it's a CarlaC pattern.

She has some great patterns, I haven't bought any yet. I've been making my own.


There are some free patterns and tutorials on the first page of the thread.
I have some that I found http://www.sewset.com/patterns/children/dress#/page/4

hi dana, it is the simply sweet dress with the natural waist. You can get the pattern on You Can Make this.com The pattern calls for the skirt to basically be 2 large rectangles. So What I did is cut 6 white panels and 6 patterned pannels and sewed them together. I ended up making the skirt a lot wider/fuller than the pattern called for but it looked cute! The appliquees are from Frou Frou by Heather Sue (I think all of them are, pretty sure!) I also altered by adding 3 layers of ruffles instead of one. If you have any questions feel free to PM me, I tend to miss a lot on this board!
It moves fast.
Good luck!

Are you looking for ideas of what to make or a place to purchase some already made sets?

Hi, and welcome to the group. Glad you decided to stop lurking and post. On the first page there should be a link to Heather Sue's bestest hand applique tutorial.

Welcome to the group and good luck finishing all your sewing. Please show us some pictures!!!!

You are such a prolific sewer. I don't have kids at my elbow every minute, either, but somehow that doesn't seem to translate into sewing more. I did, however make a couple things for my upcoming trip which I hope to "shoot and show" tomorrow.
How fun to do a split stay. We stayed at the Polynesian once. I don't think we took full advantage of everything there though. I was silly and didn't really plan a day to just spend at the resort. Of course, it was winter and cold while we were there so it was probably ok.

I can't wait to see what you made for yourself for the trip! I think one of the other reasons that I get so much sewn is that I try and cut out a bunch of things at once. That gets rid of me procrastinating because I hate to do the cutting.

Those sound cute. I can't wait to see some pictures.

I just can't wait for SPRING

Thanks and I just had enough but enough fabric.

Glad you still have some left. I keep looking for some at Joanns

Could it be me?

Is it me or is it Photobucket?


Trying to upload photos to share is very trying!


Thank you for understanding.

Welcome Diegosmom and TourPixie! Hope you post pics of what you made (unlike me who still hasn't even taken a pic of my latest creation).

<----- with slightly more white hair

Have you found that darn wolf material yet???

I'll update about the pillowcases when I know more. My thought is to make two different sizes and send them both to the GKTW contact person.

I love your Chip and Dale outfit. We used to enjoy watching chipmunks in our backyard. I keep meaning to ask Brer Fox if he knows why we haven't seen any lately.
So cool that your ds is able to accompany you! The family must be worried about you going solo without an escort -- kind of like the time where we flew my MIL out here and had to sign for her.

Hair color does wonders for the gray -- it will make you look 29 years old (which happens to be my age ).

I found the wolf material and cut it and even cut an underskirt -- though I'm not as thrilled with that fabric, but must use what I have on hand. I haven't sewn yet though and I don't have enough of either fabric for a waistband. Guess those things happen when using remnants! I'll figure something out. Her shirt usually covers the waistband anyway. I have been too busy working out lately to shed the weight I've gained that I haven't had as much sewing time as I'd like. Did you find it harder to lose weight when you turned 29??? It's been quite a battle for me.

I just e-mailed Judy to ask her if the pillow cover I made for Lisa fit. She is probably frantically searching for it right now to try it on the pillow even though I gave it to her late in the summer.

We had chipmunks all over in RI. Brer Fox might be doing you a favor b/c those cute little chipmunks kept eating the plastic away on my bird feeders to make the food spill all over the place.

Speaking of RI -- we had two offers on our house this weekend I may get to go etsy shopping for some new knits soon!!!!!!!

Chances are it's you, but I'll be kind and blame it on Photobucket this time.
