Too funny, I am looking at your stash and I think I have used 1/2 of the same fabrics on one project or another (mostly for DD4). Can't wait to see what you make!

Very nice... I wish I had more time to sew, I would love to help out with a Big give... maybe someday. FYI, DS is 7, and loves Stars Wars - he would love that boy's outfit you made, very nice!

Back to sewing, two Grace ruffle dresses in the works. Just wanted to comment on a few awesome things quick.

How do I make the images I am quoting smaller? Sorry for the huge image repost.

Smile Hi!

I just wanted to say hello, I've been lurking for a while! I have decided to bring out the sewing machine left to me by my grandma and give sewing a try. I haven't tried sewing since high school (and managed to break a sewing machine ). All of the items everyone has posted have been so beautiful!!! I really want to make some pretty dresses, my youngest girl is my "princess" and loves frilly dresses . I may be posting tons of questions soon as I am a total newbie . Best wishes to everyone

Welcome and I know you'll do great. I've been sewing less than a year now and just kind of dove right in. Can't wait to see what you make.

He told me that she only had one word for it..... EXCELLENT ! She put it on and twirled around in it for 2 hours and refused to take it off. Of course Mom was happy. He was really surprised that she liked it. he said he didn't know little girls like princess things so much. It fit her perfectly with a little room to grow. He also told me that he will find a time to bring her over in it so I can see her in it.
It's funny that the grandpa didn't like the dress but I am glad that the granddaugther liked it. I guess it has been a while since he had to buy dresses for little girls

I have 2 weeks until we head to DLR, but I'm out of town working at a quilt show, so I can't get started on my girl's dresses yet. But, I did get the fabric. I'm excited to get started!

Welcome and I can't wait to see what you make with the fabric!

The dresses are simply sweet animal-kingdom inspired, then I made star-wars-mickey-head shirts for all 3 kids, including one pink one purple for the girls. I made shorts to go with his, they are easy-fits with bargo pockets, I think they turned out really cute. I love being able to contribute to these gives, I am so glad I found this group and you have all been so welcoming and inspirational.

Great job on all the outfits! They look fab!

I will be curious to see how you like the split stay. I am usually too lazy to pack up in the middle of a trip to move somewhere else, even though we probably do to some degree as we tend to have a laundry day in the middle of the trip.

I can't wait to see pictures of the Grace Ruffle dresses. I saw that your question about the image sizing has been answered. The image reducing code only works for pictures from Photobucket though.

I've been lurking a lot lately because I haven't had time to make anything lately (working on it now though!). Can someone warn me when we have to start a new thread perhaps? I don't want to lose you!!!! I'm sure it will be soon right? Isn't it around 200?

Gee thanks...I have an older sewing/embroidery machine combo that I never use for embroidery. Thanks to this thread I just purchased a mickey ear applique and am going to try to make a few cute T shirts for my boys. I NEVER find cute boy stuff, I love the shirt and shorts goteamwood made!

I hope this isn't too frustrating, I really have no idea how to use the embroidery mode on my machine.

What machine do you have? There might be someone here who can help you.

Oh my gosh it worked!!! I have a Viking Rose--4 inch field. I thought a simple mickey head applique would be a good simple way to get to know it a bit--I did embroider with it a few times like 10 years ago when I first got it but never again. I stitched it out on a layer of heavyweight stablilizer (which I'm glad I never threw out, I have a bunch of stabilizers) and a large scrap of knit fabric, then did the applique in a scrap of flannel. I just cut out the whole thing since it's all scrap fabric and my 6 year old wanted it, but now I know I can do it on a T shirt and have it work!

I'm going to get some Cars fabric and cheap plain T shirts and make matching shirts for my boys I can't believe it worked! I'm so glad I stumbled onto this thread!

Thank you so much for the kind words about the Annie Dress. We had a great time in New York City...seeing the show and the the things that the city has to offer. I took quite a few pictures of her at the theater and I hope to put them on the computer today. I thought more little girls would be dressed up like Annie, but I think my daughter was the only one!

Add me to the list of people with a really old embroidery machine. I have a PE190? Maybe? I am looking at the one that you all seem to recommend on Amazon the 770 I think it is? I was a bit nervous as I have never bought a machine not at a dealer. When I went to my local dealer they seemed to have a very similar machine there but it was $1,300! I think it had more pre programed disney designs, but I seem to like the applique designs better. I don't really know how to do those types of designs yet, but I am sure with a little practice I can figure it out.

The PE 770 is a good machine. It is a stand alone machine it does not sew. You probably saw the 780D with the Disney Designs but that sounds a bit steep for it but I am not sure.

Post Sewing and Embroidery Machines

Could anyone advise me on a good machine/s that can sew and embroider? Or is it better to have two different machines? This isn't something I will be getting right away but I do want to research and watch costs (so I can later convince DH that I really need one! He is a notorious cheapskate ). What features are most important in a machine? I'm just trying to understand it all (sewing, embroidery, serger, etc.). Thanks in advance for any information, time to settle in for a winter storm with the kiddos

Glad you decided to stop lurking. We are happy to answer question and help a newbie get started. It is lots of fun to make princessy dresses for little girls.

I don't remember if it is at 200 or 250. Does anybody else remember????

We are glad you found us too! And glad you figured out your machine and made something with it. Youtube is a great resource for learning how to do machine applique. Plus we are all happy to answer questions here.

I am so happy that your Annie dress was a hit. I'm sure that NY was a ton of fun. I keep hoping to go with my family one day soon but other things keep coming up.

The dress that I made with Ariel on it is a Simply Sweet from the Scientific Seamstress. But I did add some of my own design features. I added shirring to the back of the halter so that it was more secure and I added two buttonholes for the straps. I also lengthened the straps so that they would tie at the back instead of at the neck.

I don't have the PE 770 but so many people on here do. And many of them have purchased them on-line instead of at local dealers. Several people bought them on Amazon.com and a few people bought them from either QVC or Overstock.com. Learning to do the appliques is very easy if you already know how to use your embroidery machine. Embroidery Library has some good tutorials.

If you have space, two separate machines tend to be less costly and nicer to have. That way if your embroidery machine is running, then you can sew in between changing thread colors. The PE 770 tends to be much less expensive than the combo machines. They generally start around $2000 for the ones with at least a 5x7 embroidery field. However, from time to time people find great deals on a used combo machine on Craigslist. Some of the older machines still run great and can least for years and years. With the embroidery machine, you want to make sure that you buy something with at least a 5x7 embroidery field. With a sewing machine, make sure that it does buttonholes and has a zigzag stitch.

Congrats on getting the embroidery portion working! I can't wait to see what you embroider with it!

The Grace Ruffle dress would have a similar look too. I have a SE270D which may be a little bit newer than yours. I would save the money and get an embroidery machine without the built in Disney design. I think most people prefer appliques anyway.

I think it is nice to have 2 separate machines, however, you can get by with just a sewing machine. You can do applique "by hand" as long as the sewing machine does zig zag stitches. A serger is nice to have, though I got by for years with just the side cutter foot on my regular sewing machine.

Glad it work out good! How is the new machine?

I told him I had one last thing and I would be done today, which I did do. UGH !!

I lied cuz I still had to finish off the seams and finish putting the zipper in. I really wanted to fit it to her before I sewed the bodice lining in and told him so. He said he would try to get her here today but that didn't work out. We decided that I would sew the lining in and she should have room to grow in it. I got started on sewing it in today and attached the bottom of the bodice lining to the bottom edge of the skirt seam. I got more than halfway done and realized I only had about 2 inches of bodice left but 7 inches of skirt seam. UGH !! I had to rip out over an hours work of hand sewing. I put it over my lamp and pinned and sewed for almost 2 hours making sure it went just right. The very top of the skirt seam to the very bottom of the bodice seam.


Sorry you had problems with the pattern but the results look lovely!

I love string backpacks.



Now you’ll be able to spot me if you see me at Disney. Look near any of the snack carts.

Love everything Cheryl!! Hope you have a great trip!

Great quilts, Jen. I like making the tops better than the other steps!

I stitched it out on a layer of heavyweight stablilizer (which I'm glad I never threw out, I have a bunch of stabilizers) and a large scrap of knit fabric, then did the applique in a scrap of flannel. I just cut out the whole thing since it's all scrap fabric and my 6 year old wanted it, but now I know I can do it on a T shirt and have it work!

I'm going to get some Cars fabric and cheap plain T shirts and make matching shirts for my boys I can't believe it worked! I'm so glad I stumbled onto this thread!
Glad you got your machine working, and have lots of fun creating!
