The girl and her Mom were just far enough away as they passed us that I would have looked like a crazy lady chasing through the crowd so I didn't get a chance to talk to them.
It was made by a Dis boarder

Oh Wendy, I was so sad to read this! I remember Bridget's Big Give and her large, loving family.

Too late to help you now, but Maxwell House makes pods for 4-6cups. I try not to use anything else since my coffee stinks. Or I go and get the flavored creamers in the little cups and take that down.

Blessings be on the family with the lost child. And with you who were fortunate enough to have contact with the family.

We showed the lady at the shop and she said they were cute but we made a few mistakes. One was we used tear away backing paper, she said it would misshape in the wash. So we bought some that was cut away and used that. She also told us to get some stuff for the back of the applique on the onsie to make it soft (something with so soft in the name, sorry I forgot but can look tomorrow). We tried making my friends son a shirt using the cut away and the so soft stuff and after we made the shirt and ironed the soft stuff on the shirt didn't look good it puckered. What did we do wrong? What do you all use tear away or cut away? And what do you do for the back when its rough?

Sorry that was so long but thanks for anyone who can help
I usually use cutaway for knits and tearaway for woven. I don't usually use anything else to make it softer but I know others do. Hopefully someone else can help you out.

Wendy, thanks for sharing the news with us. I am glad that we had a chance to make a difference in her life when she was with us. I will be thinking about her family and praying for her family in the coming days.

WOW another wonderful thread on Disboards.

I have not sewed (apart from bad hand sewing for sons cubs badges) since high school...Believe it or not I actually borrowed my OH's mothers (who passed away 10 yrs ago to Breast Cancer) sewing maching to try to do it..mmmnnn yes!

Anyway this thread has inspired me to get it out of storage and give sewing another go..along with planning our 1st WD trip & our wedding in May 2013 and trying to do up our new house Who am I kidding!

Well done to all you magical wonderful sewers on here and I WILL be back one day with a creation of my own!

It is a tool set that is called Fasturn. Here is a link to their website:

That helps keep it in place for me.

Thank you both. We may have figured out part of the problem. We ironed on the cut away stabalizer and we are thinking maybe we weren't supposed to. It says to and the lady said to but it left behind little rough dots when we pulled it back and cut it and they didn't go away when we washed it.

We still don't know about the soft stuff on the back. When we ironed it on is when it looks like it almost shrunk it and made it look pulled. IDK what to do but I guess we will eventually figure it out.

I'm so sorry you are feeling poorly. I hate that it's dragged on this long. I must admit that I did LOL because 1st you swore you had West Nile and now you think it's from a spider bite! I'm guessing you're not a fan of the insect family, are you? Seriously though, I hope you don't mind my teasing and I DO pray that you feel better really quickly.

Oh and I lost the part about my DD when I was cleaning up quotes, but I'm guessing the confusion came from me. I have three DDs so I sometimes label them DD1, DD2, and DD3 and you probably thought that was the age. I guess I should start doing it the other way (ex: 2DD)?





Sunshine
I never found the book but the library says I can come in and fill out a form saying I returned it and I will not be charged. Like I said, I am 99% sure it was in my return pile. In the mean time, they renewed it in case I do find it.

I am not a bug fan, but I am thinking this is bug bite related b/c no one else in the house has gotten sick. I would think if it's an airborne virus the kids and dh might have gotten sick. And no, I don't mind your teasing.

I like the cleavage on regular infinity dresses -- it's about all I still have going for me LOL!

I haven't but I had a tick bite last year which got infected and they didn't bother testing me Just gave me antibiotics. DS had really different symptoms when he had Lyme disease though, so I don't think that's what this is. If I'm not a lot better in a few days I guess I will go to the doctors -- I just know they'll be clueless though.

On knits I use medium weight Floriani cut away -- it softens nicely when washed and I don't have to put a backing on it. I did use tender touch by sulky as a backing though for things I made for a BG family as one has really delicate skin. I had no problems with it.

I have never ironed cut away -- I do what Diane does and use Dritz spray. Did you iron again after washing?

Oh how sad I remember Bridget as I did some hats for her. My thoughts are with her family at the most difficult time. I'm so glad she was able to have a wish trip.

I use Tender Touch by Sulky on the back of my t-shirts. It works great. You can get it at Joanns with the 40% off coupons. I never iron on my stabilizer but I just use regular cut away, not anything special. Andrea's right that it does get much softer after washing. But with a baby, I'd still use Tender Touch on the back. They have such delicate skin. My nephew, who is autistic, has so many sensory issues so I always back what I make for him with Tender Touch.

I remember the hats you made for Bridgie. I made a dress to go with one of the hats. I am also glad that her family was able to enjoy a wonderful trip together with her.

Hi another newbie here. Just wondering if you think it is possible for me to sew a pillowcase dress for our trip on Oct 26? I have a sewing machine but I've never even turned it on (I did take it out of the box and study the instructions and watched sewing tutorials online). Should I settle for trying to make a bib instead? Feeling a little overwhelmed by it

My WDW trips have happened at the last minute and this is the first time we're taking the children. I honestly didn't think the kids were going to WDW for at least 4 more years (so I thought I had time ).

Thanks! Love seeing your beautiful work.
