Kids Disney Boutique / Customs Clothes - Part 6

So am I the only one that starts planning what to pack and getting things organized well in advance? Our trip is in March and I am already making lists. Am I crazy?

I am attempting a peasant top at the moment, and I messed up the sleeves!!!!!!! I sewed them on wrong, and it was time to Step Away From the Machine!!
Regarding musical note fabric: Hancock's had some that was from their St. Judes collection. It was purple swirls with black musical notes on it. I used it for a HSM pair of scrappy patches pants. They also had some rainbow colored star fabric that had pictures/drawings of children's faces in the center of the stars. I used the girls and boys that matched my DD's fave. characters and put them on the knees.
Last time I looked, it was in the clearance section.

I hope you can find it!

I never learned to play either. And, I'm going to tell this story, because Vicki was not at this particular gathering of Brian's friends (she made me feel welcome from the first time I met her! )....
But, the first time we went to the UP to visit his friends, they played Euchre for FOUR HOURS (at least) STRAIGHT!!! And, would NOT tell me how to play, even though I asked them to teach me! I ended up spending the day with their two little boys! Who, while very sweet, were not the most entertaining company!

Ok, once again, I started a reply an hour or so ago, an am just now getting back to finishing, so forgive me if this has been answered!

I thought the ruffler foot was pretty easy to use, as long as you are sure you have the right one for your machine, (high shank, low shank or slant shank). There are a few tutorial videos in the bookmarks (in my siggy) and definetely download teh YCMT tutorial E-book. And, when you are done with the ruffler, make sure you retighten your needle, it tends to losen up while you are using the ruffler, and I've had mine fall out when I start regular sewing again!

We don't leave until May and I have already been planning what everyone is going to where. Also trying to keep things together that I know we will be needing to bring with us.

my3princes and Disney 4 Me: My DH's name is Colby also. He hates his name. Mainly because when he was younger his Step-Mother would call him cheesehead. She's kind of a mean person. She actually wore white to my wedding. I was so mad. She knew I was mad too.

Wooohooo after 4 months of trying to get my machine to co-operate and do some shirring - finally I succeeded - I went to visit a friend and she had a similar sewing machine and she showed me what she needed to do (a bit long winded but who cares if it works). So I just had to share with my new sewing buddies I'm so excited - this opens a whole new world of outfits for me





I need to add the straps and do the hem but need my DD awake to do that. I'm on a roll now - soon I'll be able to make real trip outfits .and it's from my bargain table fabric I bought yesterday - $2/m and it will make at least 4 tops from that metre -now try beating that price for ready made stuff


We will also be going to Hawaii when we are on our trip and I saw some lovely Frangipani floral print yesterday (but didn't grab any as my hands were full of other bolts of fabric) so I'm going back today so I can make a couple of shirred dresses for over their swimwear


Oh and can someone give me measurements of a 4-5 year old - I can use my eldest DD for the 3yo stuff as that is how old my youngest will be when we go - but have no idea how big a 5 year old is

SO, is the Euchre game played with spoons? Is that the game you're all talking about?

It's not terribly difficult to learn. There is a learning curve though. You want to practice a bit before jumping in with fabric that is designated for an outfit. You also want to stitch nice and slow. HOWEVER, I may not be the best one to take advice from since I seem to be the ONLY PERSON that has managed to actually BRAKE a ruffler foot!

No, you're not the only one. Our next trip isn't unti next January or February. I'm sewing for my DD for that trip already. I hope I'm guessing right on sizes!
