I don't sew, but I need some help finding some embroidery or applique pictures please.

I've used pictures to help me draw some pictures on packages, and as I was decorating Jacob's package I realized I could try to paint a few designs on shirts for Angel's trip.

There was a design we saw of a cute little giraffe wearing Mickey ears that she especially loved. I think it may have been on a pant leg. i tried google, but didn't find it.

I am also looking for a few suggestions on simple designs that I might be able to do. I plan to use the designs that I've drawn on the packages - the cruise ship, DCL wave (though that one did cause me fits), and a 4 parks one that had a simple outline of the castle, ball, hat, & tree. I managed a R2D2 Mickey head for Trev, but my attempts at Vader or a Stormtrooper didn't go well, so I do need pretty simple designs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That may be the saddest thing I've ever heard. Although, what I would do is take this time to learn a new crafty skill; knitting or crochet or hand needlework or polymer clay or beading. But I like learning new things and am addicted to thrift store shopping (for knitting needles and so on.)

Thanks to everyone for the sympathies on my computer woes. It only seems to load up one or two photos before going into the loading zone of foreverness, so maybe I can get some up when I try later this week.

I will definitely sign up for a big give soon. I have an entire box of Disney themed fabric and embelishments that I want to play with but have no good reason to right now.

She has put off the hip replacement for a few years so her hip was really bad by the time she had it done. I am sure that once she recovers, she will be able to be so much more active than before! At first they said that they were sending her directly home from the hospital after only 2 days. But today they decided that she does need to go to rehab. She is being transferred there this evening. It is a relief for my dad because he has been worried about being able to help her.

I agree that the Big Gives are a wonderful way to pay it forward.

So sad about your machines! Maybe you can find something inexpensive on Craigslist or at a thrift store until you can save up for exactly what you want. I saw a decent looking sewing machine at a thrift store last week for $20. I almost bought it for dd to play with but changed my mind at the last minute.

I hope you get the computer issue straightened out soon. My computer has issues from time to time too. It usually ends up being some kind of virus and then DH has to fix it for me.

Big Gives are a great way to use up some of your Disney fabric!

I agree that doing the Gives are a good way to pay it forward. I know I am not a pro but the families seem to appreciate whatever I made, so I keep going!

Oh no! I am sorry to hear about your machine woes! I hope you can get a replacement machine soon. Maybe you can find a used one on kijiji?

I think you are describing one of Heather's design. You can probably go to her site and see the pictures?

I am glad that she is getting the rehab support while she recovers. I hope she will be up and running quickly!

The Tie Dye Mickeys are in their final rinse for Trevors Big Give. They came out super cute. I'll post a picture tomorrow once they are dry.

Thank you everyone for the kind words. I had my machine for more than 12 years. It is a sad loss for sure. I have known for the last 2 years the gears were gone. I have taken it easy with her and babied her along. I could not decide between a machine with all the bells and whistles or a heavy duty straight stitch only machine. I wobble back and forth. I scour craigslist and yardsales and goodwill for the last 2 years. Never satisfied with what I found.

Last night on Craigslist was a very heavy duty machine at a steal of a price. Really to good to be true. So mom and I went to check it out. I came home with a new baby. More then I could have dreamed and stronger than I ever thought I could afford. I really think God was watching over me. Things have been very stressful lately and sewing is my stress release. I will post pictures once she is assembled yes she is that big. I just need a name for her now. Thank you ladies I knew you would understand my broken heart and now new joy.

I am so sorry about your old machine.

How wonderful that you were able to find one on Craiglist! I know that sewing helps me relieve stress as well, and I was sad to think of you without a machine. I never thought of naming mine. Perhaps it needs a name. Let us know what you come up with!

I see you found what you were looking for. You can also google coloring book pages. Those usually have nice lines that are good for creating hand appliques.

Yeah! I love tie dye shirts but the thought of making one scares me. You might not want to post here until after the family receives them, someone might peek.

How exciting. I was so sad when I heard your machine was dead. How awesome that you were able to find a "new" machine.

I am finally getting around to posting some pictures of the things I made for my nice and nephew's first trip to Disney world last month. Sorry for the huge pictures:

The dress I made for Kate to wear to our princess breakfast in Norway. This is very similar to one that post a few weeks ago. My niece loved twirling in this dress. She enjoyed showing all the princesses that they were on her dress and Aurora wished she had a dress with all of her friends on it too.
front:

back:


My nephew is a huge sports fan and is a major Minnesota Viking's fan which is kind of odd because he was born in Colorado, my brother is a Giant's fan and he currently lives in NC. For Christmas he got a jersey, PJ pants, football and a Viking helmet - like they sell in Epcot, not a football helmet. Purple is his favorite color so that might have something to do with it. I could not figure out what I was going to make him for our Epcot day and then I remembered I had this mickey head and found a purple t-shirt at Hobby Lobby. I think this was his favorite shirt of the week.


They wore these to Chef Mickey and our last day at MK. My nephew's t-shirt was actually a recycle. I made this for my son for one of our trips before I got my embroidery machine. I'm glad he was able to use it but boy I was not good at hand applique:


These were supposed to be for our second day at Epcot and dinner at Coral Reef but we ended up going to AK instead. They still worked for the Animal theme but I would have rather done a cute animal print theme.


I have a few more things to share but need to head out. Hope everyone has a great day.

So glad you found a new machine! You can't go wrong with a good machine... So you said it is heavy duty... Is it vintage??? I'd love to see pics either way.

Liz, these are all soooo cute! That princess dress is TDF, and I just love that Nemo fabric - I've been hoarding some for a while, and I would love to make something with it.

She knew that your new sewing buddy was ready for you. Her time had come to pass you along to a new friend. I really believe everything happens for a reason.

I think I've mentioned it before, but those cute princesses are so adorable. And I'm digging the Viking Mickey.

I scour craigslist and yardsales and goodwill for the last 2 years. Never satisfied with what I found.

Last night on Craigslist was a very heavy duty machine at a steal of a price. Really to good to be true. So mom and I went to check it out. I came home with a new baby. More then I could have dreamed and stronger than I ever thought I could afford. I really think God was watching over me. Things have been very stressful lately and sewing is my stress release. I will post pictures once she is assembled yes she is that big. I just need a name for her now. Thank you ladies I knew you would understand my broken heart and now new joy.
Oh I am so glad that you were able to get a "new" machine. I look forward to seeing pictures of the new "baby."

The dress I made for Kate to wear to our princess breakfast in Norway. This is very similar to one that post a few weeks ago. My niece loved twirling in this dress. She enjoyed showing all the princesses that they were on her dress and Aurora wished she had a dress with all of her friends on it too.

My nephew is a huge sports fan and is a major Minnesota Viking's fan which is kind of odd because he was born in Colorado, my brother is a Giant's fan and he currently lives in NC. For Christmas he got a jersey, PJ pants, football and a Viking helmet - like they sell in Epcot, not a football helmet. Purple is his favorite color so that might have something to do with it. I could not figure out what I was going to make him for our Epcot day and then I remembered I had this mickey head and found a purple t-shirt at Hobby Lobby. I think this was his favorite shirt of the week.


They wore these to Chef Mickey and our last day at MK. My nephew's t-shirt was actually a recycle. I made this for my son for one of our trips before I got my embroidery machine. I'm glad he was able to use it but boy I was not good at hand applique:


These were supposed to be for our second day at Epcot and dinner at Coral Reef but we ended up going to AK instead. They still worked for the Animal theme but I would have rather done a cute animal print theme.


I have a few more things to share but need to head out. Hope everyone has a great day.
Don't apologize for posting large pictures, we like large pictures! The princess dress is beautiful. The other outfits looked great too. Too bad about the Nemo set and ended up in AK. I think the set worked well for AK too though.
