So, do you share your secrets? I am making DD6 a Belle dress right now, and am playing around with the best way to make the skirt poof out, and yours are GORGEOUS! Do you just so a layer of tulle underneath?

Rapunzel

I recently finished a rapunzel dress for my daughter. It was a rough go, but she seems to like it! So I guess that is all that matters

THis is the dress with the vest.

http://images2.snapfish.com/23232323...76234%3Anu0mrj
And without the vest.

That sounds like fun. I would love an impromptu (no matter how many letters I keep adding it still doesn't look right ) trip, and if I thought my mother wouldn't need me while I was gone I'd love to wake up some day and decide to just go!

So cute. We don't get to see Snoopy much on this thread -- although I often see him at Joann's.

Hooray for a niece.

Hooray for the embroidery machine, too.

I just heard on the evening news that someone in MN won the megamillions jackpot for $220 million.

We could have seminars and classes and speakers and get lots of free stuff.

I should probably go pack.

The outfit is sooo cool. Great job.

Everything looks great. I really love the chalkboard outfit.

I'm surprised people are still posting new outfits and not waiting to see if they fit in one of the upcomimng Runway categories. That's the main reason I'm holidng off, in case one week it's bridal fashion for GA dolls.

That is adorable -- your friend's dd is a cutie! Don't you hate it when your kids won't model. SOme days my dd loves to and others she refuses. I had to pay her one time.

If you have any questions about how I did it, let me know. The darker purple is sparkly fabric from the Joann's quilting section.
I know I commented on your dress when you made it, but my dd is sitting here now and said that dress looks really cute on that girl. And then she added that the girl,herself, is just really cute

Tell Kirsten to calm down and that everything will be OK. Is there another design she'd be willing to use? A different creation perhaps? Tell her mine didn't turn out like I pictured it either and maybe that will make her feel better (then again, I'm not done with mine so once I finish it may look better than anticipated).
Hmmm, I had to take a bunch of your smilies in order to post. Between you and Cheryl you'd think the Disboards would up the # of images allowed.

I love everything! The BTS is amazing and I like seeing the chalkboard alphabet done. I was just going to redo dd's BTS dress with a generic initial, but now I may look into that -- I'm sure I need other designs from PA as well!
I ADORE the halloween patchwork twirl! It's AWESOME!!!!!

Cute, cute , cute! Too bad about the waistband -- but chances are no one will notice when the dress is being worn.

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...4159257&type=1

The owl dress she made all by herself! I'm so proud of her! She worked really hard. I've struggled to find anything to hold her attention. She's my kid who can't stand still and doesn't seem to have a lot of interests, so I was so excited to see her take to this the way she did! The only part I helped with was the gathering. She has become pretty confident on her machine!
The back shot on the Feliz isn't great since she was being goofy, but hopefully you get the idea. Now I'm making her a Belle dress for our trip in November! Hoping to finish it tonight or tomorrow!

That is beautiful! I'd be so scared to work with fabric like that.

They also said to make sure to spray their hair with a water bottle, but cover the doll's eyes with a towel because they can rust.

I actually got the girls the American Girl Doll Hair Salon at Michaels. It came with a brush, spray bottle, hair clips, a hair book and hair DVD. They have quite a few of the books and craft items and the week we went, everything was 40% off. You could also use one of the coupons

I think I might have to get this for DD's dolls. Thanks for posting this!

I ordered Marathon's popular 50 set while she was away and guess what? She hates it. will not stitch out with it for nothing! I'm thinking I can get away with what I have to get my project done, but ugh...so bummed. All those pretty colors. phooey.
Vent over.
That is too bad. I have never ordered from Marathon but on my PE770 I have been splurging on the Florani thread. I just love how it embroiders.

The oils in human hair damage the doll's wigs, so you must be very careful not to use a brush on their hair that has been used in human hair. It's a slow process, but almost always starts with really dry dolly wigs, then they turn frizzy and are impossible to brush.

Here's what I recommend (but feel free to google it - there are lots of helpful websites out there) - Take a clean washcloth and tape it over the doll's eyes (you never want to get your doll's eyes wet - they will rust), and a plastic bag around her body. Then take her to the sink with a bottle of shampoo (I use the kids Johnson and Johnson), and wash her hair thoroughly - twice if you want to be sure - then rinse it even more thoroughly until you are 110% positive you got all of the shampoo out. Some people soak it in fabric softener (unscented) but I haven't had good results with it - so I don't recommend it - but you are welcome to try... if you want to google "downy dunk" and that should bring up tons of info on that process. Then let her air dry (do not blow dry). Once she is completely dry, then you can remove the washcloth. That *should* take any human oils out of her hair. Just remember that the scented shampoos will make their hair smell for a long time, if you don't like those kinds of scents, use unscented stuff. If you have any questions, please feel free to PM ms.

D~
thankfully I haven't brushed Kanani's hair yet. I think tomorrow I might be swing by Michaels with my 40% coupon.

You can get the same Disney designs from the preloaded machines at Ibroidery.com

That is the cutest girl scout outfit I have ever seen.

No one in RI ever wins .... but if it is D that would be great. That is so sweet that she would do that for us.

It's been a long time since I've posted! I'll never catch up, so I'm jumping right in! We're planning a January trip, and I'm already dreaming up all the customs!! Dare I say it...this might be the last trip where DD wears full customs

Here's my latest set...

I understand about not having time. 3 kids & a full-time job means I don't have much time for anything except keeping our heads above the dishes & laundry these days.

Thanks! But, I would like to point out that Bob is NOT a sock monkey! He's just a cute sleeping monkey. We do have a copuple or 4 sock monkeys in this house though.

I know I missed some. My computer doesn't always show me the pics & I don't realized I've missed them until I see some else talking about them. The GS out fit was really cute & so was the Epcot-y outfit - even if the kids heads did get cut off.

I am just offering... I know nothing about digitizing - so I can't help you with that. Sorry. I hope you are able to figure it out.

Wow - all of these outfits are great. Tell your dd that she did an AMAZING job on the owl dress... I also have a dd that loves to sew, and it took us a long time to find a hobby that she really enjoyed. I love the fact that I can share that time with her.

Here's my latest set...







This is so amazing - and I love your dd's poses. I've always admired your outfits - you do some increadible work (I read back through previous threads when I first joined in)... I can't wait to see the rest of your outfits for your trip.

We could have seminars and classes and speakers and get lots of free stuff.

I should probably go pack.

I WON!!!!!

Can you believe it????

In all seriousness - I am way too CHEAP to spend $1 on a lottery ticket. ROFL.

But - if by some chance I ever win the lottery (because I don't buy ticket) - I swear to take each and everyone one of you on a Disney cruise, all expenses paid... and I will even pay to have your machines shipped and we can do a whole sewing week - or maybe even two - if I am feeling generous (which I almost always am) I'll even splurge on an AG doll (or GA, if you prefer) for each of you, so you have someone to sew for.

Quick question for those of you who make autograph quilts after your back from your trips. What do you use to get the autograph on the fabric? Do you use fabric markers or is there another technique I'm not aware of?

The owl dress she made all by herself! I'm so proud of her! She worked really hard. I've struggled to find anything to hold her attention. She's my kid who can't stand still and doesn't seem to have a lot of interests, so I was so excited to see her take to this the way she did! The only part I helped with was the gathering. She has become pretty confident on her machine!
The back shot on the Feliz isn't great since she was being goofy, but hopefully you get the idea. Now I'm making her a Belle dress for our trip in November! Hoping to finish it tonight or tomorrow!

I am very impressed that your daughter made the owl dress all by herself! She is young to sew so well!


I didn't think about not posting pictures of what I have made. I guess anything I sew in the next week or two, I will have to keep secret! That way I can use them for Project Runway. LOL!

Had some trouble turning under the perfect bun

Hi Everyone!! I was wondering if anyone knows the name of the pattern with the long twisty hoodie. It's like a long sleeve tee with a hood. Please send me a message if you know. Thanks..
