I know I've seen this but what Sulky stabilizer do you recommend? I am doing t- ****s and small appliqués by hand on cotton.

Thanks

I am wanting to make a strip skirt w/ the Princesses embroidereid on it. I have bought the patches, and am ready to bbuy the material. My question is how much do I need? I want to make a top (think a longer bodice w/ buttons ont he back and ruffles along the bottom) and a strip skirt w/ 2 materials (and a 3rd for the ruffles on the bottom). Oldest is a size 10/12, second is a size 8. I need a 22" length for the oldest, about 20 for the second (this is not including extra, this is the actual waist measurement). I am not sure how full to make the skirts. I was thinking a yard and a half of one fabric, and a yard of the other for each girl? ANd then a yard to make the ruffles for both of them. DOes this sound about right? I don't have a pattern yet, and I Plan to just piece one together from my mom's patterns I may also do a yoke on the skirt, then attach the pannels if that would fit better. SUggestions welcome!

For T-shirts I use cutaway and for cotton, tear away (but sometimes cut away too)

Question

Question: how old is too old for a crayon roll? 10?? Making crayon rolls as FE gifts, mostly a younger crowd of kids but a few 9 and 10 year olds. I have two teens and I am doing drawstring backpacks for them but not sure what to do with the 9 and 10 year olds....thoughts?? Thanks!!!

Nini
Thanks Nini and Jen, I hadn't thought about the appliquee and tiny pieces, embroidery only is fine too, we'll see what happens I'll ask the mom. I really like the one on Ibroidery that Jen mentioned but $10! so if she wants it, she's paying for it.
Thanks!

I would do backpacks for the 9-10 year olds too.

I just looked at the fabric requirements for Carla's stripwork jumper (since it is probably close to what you plan to do). A size 7/8 dress would take 5/8 yard for each strip (4 fabrics total), 5/8 yard for a single ruffle, 3/8 yard for bodice, 3/8 yard for bodice lining, and 1/8 yard for straps.

I think I would do crayon roll but put it colour pencils instead of crayons for the older kids.

I got a few of them from Mickeyavenue.com. You can also google "Disney font free."

Nini
I don't think I could do the butt ruffles either, but then again, I'm not a very girly-girl.

iBroidery has a 1/2 off code on Disney & Pixar good through April 30th. 50Disney13. Just in case.

Purpleears, everything is really cute, as always. The apron is darling.

As for my new machine, I think I'm going to have to do a little (a Lot) more rearranging in my sewing room so I can work comfortably at both machines.

Hey ladies - I'm popping back in. Since we went on our trip last August, I pretty much went right back to work and then got really bogged down with teaching and doing contract assessment writing...and I was a bit depressed that Disney was over for awhile. However...DH convinced me to move up the trip that I had originally planned to take with my mom and the kids in 2014 to this year.

So, I am going to take the crew back to AoA - this time staying at The Lion King section Dec. 1-7. The kids have NO idea and I will have to do my sewing on the sly...no telling them until at least Thanksgiving is the plan!

Welcome back, Sandi!

I totally get the post-Dis sadness! We went that first week in December last year and it was amazing! We surprised our kids as part of Christmas. You will have a blast! (And, I think that's the same week Flora will be there, too!). Can't wait to see all your creations!

Regards,
C.

Welcome back and how exciting about the trip. I have been a few times during that week and it is a hit or miss for weather. Most times were gorgeous but it can be freezing cold. I know you will have lots of fun ! We surprised our kids going to Dl and it was awesome.

OOOOOOOh... we are also going from Nov 30 to Dec 10...
The week after Thanksgiving is our usual week of going...but after this year my daughter will be in high school...so I think the handwriting is going to be on the wall for us soon... We are staying at POFQ that trip. Maybe we will see you there!

Sorry I haven't been on much. It was a busy weekend. I am going to try to catch up but I'm sure I have missed lots of stuff.

I think not getting your aunt's machine might be for the best. Keep an eye out on Craigslist and maybe you will luck into something with all the parts. I love your new vintage machine. I hope you can get it up and running.

With the snow (we are expecting like 4 inches of snow), I also thought it would be nice to make something for spring so I can look forward to warmer temperatures. I figured one can never be too old for butt ruffles so I made this using Lisa's Audery Ruffle skirt pattern:

Wow you sure have been busy. I love the Big Give stuff and your Lucy halter top is adorable. I would love to be able to get away with a butt ruffle skirt but my daughters would die if I went out in public in a skirt of any kind. They are embarrassed enough by me in my jeans. Of course at 12 and 13, they are embarrassed just having a mother.

I think I'd do string backpacks for the older kids. My girls might have liked crayon roll ups at 9 and 10 but they would have preferred the bags more.

Hi Sandi! Welcome back! I check in on your blog from time to time because I love to see your wonderful sewing. Also, your kiddos pop up very frequently on Sewing Pattern Review. We are staying at AoA this summer.

I have done only a tiny bit of sewing. I am starting to get bogged down with bat mitzvah details. We worked on the programs over the weekend and also did our first table seating charts. Of course the kids want me to move a million people around so I will be re-doing it.
