I didn't see one's that light up. I'll have to look again.

Lisa is called Funktional Threads. She has patterns on Youcanmakethis and also on Etsy. If you are going to buy her pattern, I'd recommend purchasing it on Etsy because you can also get it in a bundle with her adorable Audrey skirt pattern. I am going to buy both of them but I've been waiting for the new pattern to be released too.

Well, the launch ended a little while ago and I am thrilled because I sold both of my items that were listed this time. I was happy about how they turned out. I am not a good photographer though and I don't have a model so portraying the dresses so that they look their best is a challenge that I still need to work on. Here are a few pictures of the two dresses that I had done for tonight:






You can probably see where a few of the scraps for the Mickey halter dress that I made two weeks ago came from now. LOL!

Boy you all have been chatty the last few days.
We had a great time. I was so upset the day of MNSSHP, as we walked in around 4pm it started pouring and I thought the party was going to get rained out. Well all my praying paid off as it stopped raining about an hour later and never rained again. We even got to see the Headless Horseman

Andrea.... I hope you feel better. I can't believe they won't give you anything stronger to help with the H/A

I think my favorite was the dress that was made from scraps and the pointy bottoms.



We managed to ride it about 4 times in two days with half that being single rider lines. On our 2nd day in that park, the camera's were down so no ride pics.

I have a crude pic of me in my costume from the party.


Love that picture. You looked you great. I have to say I was surprised that our party did not feel overly crowded since the night before was rained out and alot of those people were at our party.

Now that I'm 37 weeks preggo.....I'm spending more time at home because well I'm just ready to have this baby girl so I can recooperate in time for the holidays. If DH job isn't disintegrated at the end of the year we hope to plan another trip for a year from now....during next years fall break.

.....anyway...off to read to look at some cute pictures of stuff!
WOW I can't believe it's been that long. I remember when you posted you were having another baby.

I've been trying to bookmark all those sites/shops so I can have them in the future. I don't have an embroidery machine, but a girl can dream, right?
Sunshine
Thanks. We did have a great time and the Glow in the Dark thread works great on the dark rides. My kids loved it.

There were a few exhibitors that were there last year but didn't come back this year. I was hoping to see Pickle Pie again and she wasn't there. Bernina wasn't there either and neither was a seller who had tons of Japanese fabrics last year.

However, I was able to take a look at the new Brother embroidery machines and also at the Babylock version. They only had the combo machines out for the Expo but they said that the embroidery only machines were pretty much the same but without the sewing capabilities. The new Brother machine was being marketed for $3495 at the show and the Babylock machine was $3995. I don't understand why the Babylock was $500 more since it is the exact same machine. I had hoped to spend more time looking at the Brother machine but they were extremely busy at that booth.

I spent a long time chatting with the lady at the Juki booth. I was quite impressed with their new line of home sewing machines. The lady at Juki said that they are planning to bring out an embroidery machine within the next year or so. She said that it is still in the development stage. I know that Juki has made industrial machines for a long time. I wonder how dependable their home sewing line will be???

I also spent some time talking to the lady at the Pfaff booth. They have an embroidery/sewing combo machine that has the HUGEST hoop that I've ever seen. It was like 16x20. You do split designs in it. First you embroider 1/2 of the design and then you turn the hoop and snap it back in. Then you embroider the other 1/2 of the design. It was pretty neat but the machine was priced at $9700. GASP!

I did buy a bunch of Marathon thread and I nearly bought that set of tools that you use to turn fabric tubes after sewing them. But my friend bought a set and I thought I'd see how she likes them before I invest $70 in them. My friend also bought some stabilizer at the Marathon booth and some fabric at the Vogue fabric booth. One of the Marathon threads I bought was a glow in the dark thread and another one was the kind that changes color in the sun.
Just reading this now. Sounds like you had a great time. I want to get some more Glow in the Dark thread. Like I just mentioned in the PP, my kids loved it.

Anyway, I popped in to tell you I saw a beautiful Ursula dress in Epcot Thursday. It was a simply sweet and the bodice was her face and her tentacles were draped over the skirt. It was fantastic!!! I don't know if it was a disboutiquer or not but it was beautifully done! So creative and just so much fun to see.
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.
How cool. That was sold on our last Main Street launch. I dont think she posts here anymore but that was an awesome dress.

If you havent joined in on a Big Give yet, please come and check it out - the memories for these families last a lifetime (:

Anyone have any thoughts on this I'm sure I'm passed my warranty on it as I didn't sew much the first year when I got it just didn't have the time now with a sewing space and our trip I'm sewing more and getting frustrated with the threader dropping My other machine is fine it doesn't do it at all.
I broke mine off on my PE770 into a million pieces so when I use that machine I have to manually thread it now.

I finished a big give dress today...pics after it arrives. I am trying to find the motivation to clean the house but I am too cold and would rather snuggle up with a book and some tea
That is why I rarely go onto the other pages now. People are just so mean.

Can't wait to see what you made.

Awe I missed seeing this one. That is so cute.

My MIL and my grandma-in-law both sew and they are always curious about my current projects (Grandma used to teach quilting classes and she gave me a lot of materials when she moved here). I need to take a picture of the carrier when I pack up the pie.
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you too! Your pies look yummy.

I purchased two pillowcases, 1 in a leopard print and 1 polka dot. The material was microfiber. For some reason I didn't see anything that caught my eye in the fabric aisle at Walmart for her dress. I ran into a few problems: hemming, ribbon hole size, and width of the dress. The hemming is what took forever for me, specifically around the armholes as they are curved, the hemming for the other parts were easy. I kept sewing and then cutting the threads because they were bunched. On one side I just gave up, but it isn't noticeable under the arm and because the dress bunches. The tutorial I followed didn't cut the width of the pillowcase down so the dress is really wide. The tutorial also used a thinner ribbon than what I originally wanted, thankfully I had thinner ribbon to use. When I realized it there wasn't enough fabric to make a larger opening for the big ribbon. The dress is an inch shorter then I wanted, I had a mishap with my rotary cutter. All my fingers are intact however, and I managed not to prick myself once. I found the fabric difficult to work with. It wouldn't take to folding in small areas well. At least I hope it was the fabric and not my skills. Next time I will be sure to purchase a less slippery fabric. Okay, sorry for the long rant. On with the pictures, she'll have to wear shorts or pants under this but I'm satisfied as this was my first sewing project ever.

So glad you made it. Now it is going to be very addicting. You are going to want to make outfits for everyday LOL

Yes, they are running out of the water. DS11 was up past his waist in the water. They were in and out for 30 minutes or so before making a sandcastle on the beach.
BRRR.... I can't believe how cold it is. We we landed in RI on Monday I was shivering and I am never cold.

These are the only things I have ever sewn so I am still learning a lot. My MIL is helping me put together a toddler Christmas dress so I am learning to sew from a pattern too.
Great job on the skirts

But I got to spend my birthday in the woods without internet/cell reception and with my amazing husband and our equally amazing progeny. If you're interested in some amazing fall colors, I can't recommend enough Door County Wisconsin around the first week in October. Never disappoints. Though I can't wait for Florida in a couple weeks, it was a tad on the chilly side for my tastes...

Am I a terrible mom that I wanted to put my kids in bed at 6 p.m. so I can get back into my sewing room for the 1st time in a week??
Looks like you had a great time. And I won't tell anyone if you put the kids to bed early!

Glad you were able to get some diagnose from the doctor. I don't know anything about that disease so I will have to read up on it.
Love all the things you made.

The Bubble Guppies shirt is still a work in progress still but don't need it for another week and a half so I should have plenty of time. I have another birthday shirt to work on as well. The Sesame shirt he is all excited to wear this weekend for the 1st time!


I am glad that you finally got a diagnosis for your son so you can start advocating for him. The Sesame shirt looks great. I can't wait until the Guppies shirt is done!

Well I should say not overly stressful when things are cooperating LOL I learned my machine does not like cheap thread and my machine does not like nearly empty bobbins. Bad things happen. Thank you for the recommendation for the Carla C patterns I see a lot of cute things to make. I would like to make my sons stuff too and I love those bowling shirts. First though is to get through this Christmas dress, mostly I just don't understand the lingo and the pictures on the pattern do not "speak" to me. My MIL looks at them and is like okay this is what they want you to do and I am just like you got that from this little picture!!??

I LOVE the creations that have been posted here and it is very inspiring to see what can be done at home. I tend to forget that things at the store are actually sewn at some point!
I am glad that you are making progress in your sewing journey. It's always helpful to have someone to answer the sewing questions! I had to fight my own way through the sewing patterns when I started.

I am on pattern number two though because I was happily cutting along and cutting all the wrong sizes out..grrrr...I knew from the YouTube that I should have circled my size on the packet but got ahead of myself and well the size medium I needed was cut to XS...learning learning learning...lesson number 599....
Too bad about the sewing pattern. I am too cheap to cut out the patterns so I trace them out on moving paper.

Try checking youtube for some videos that show you how to use it. It is pretty easy. For a first project, you did an amazing job! And your little girl is a real cutie!
You know I saw a tutorial with it and I *thought* it seemed easier to not do it Boy was I wrong. My mom suggested it too after I told her about my difficulties. Can't wait to try again.

Loving your sewing room. It's so organized and relaxing. Also in love with that elephant.

Apologies everyone but I've been AWOL since Thursday due to DD's birthday festivities so there are so many great things I'm missing but I had some questions about these:

This dress is fabulous! My little sister is pregnant now and this looks awesome. Do you mind sharing how you made it? Did you follow a pattern or tutorial?

You sure have been busy!

The great thing about sewing is that you are constantly learning something new. And if you mess something up, all you have to do is use your seam ripper and rip out those seams.

No, I already had the Lady and the Tramp logo from a dress that I'd done a couple of years ago. I digitized the dog's snouts and the spaghetti for this dress.

Here are a few pictures of the two dresses that I had done for tonight:






You can probably see where a few of the scraps for the Mickey halter dress that I made two weeks ago came from now. LOL!
Those are both beautiful dresses, glad to hear the launch went well for you.

Thanks! The elephant was actually made for me by my youngest dd - she was 12 at the time she made it, and I love that little guy too! A million times better than that darned rolling tomato that I used to have.

I am way behind in quoting. So much awesome stuff! Unfortunately, I can't remember what I wanted to comment on. Yesterdays are still fresh, so I love ALL of those launch outfits. They are all amazing!

Since my bad news, I have been sad and not wanting to do anything other than making it through work. However, we are going to the circus to see Ringling Brothers Dragons tonight, and late Tuesday night I decided I wanted DD2 to have an outfit. So the fabric was bought yesterday, and made last night. There were 2 shirt casualties, learning to embroider on knit. And I ran out of time, so once again no ruffle for now and a quick hem. This is my first official outfit, as the princess one still needs a ruffle.

Very cute! We took my boys to the circus (ringling) last year for their 2nd birthday and they STILL talk about it, they loved it. Though their initial reports were, "We saw elephants and tigers and sat in chairs." since I think it was the first time they had to sit that long for anything.
I looked into it again this year but we are going to be in Disney World that week! I think I am OK skipping the circus this year for Disney... Hope you have a great time. We went about an hour early and you can go down on the floor and meet the clowns, take photos, try on their costumes, etc. It was a lot of fun and totally worth getting there early.
