Disboutiquers Part 7 Kids Disney Boutique / Customs Clothes psst..we sew

When we get near page 250 here, I'll start a new thread again.



PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
Read this post for Valuable Information
Or, at least skim it
Welcome to the Disboutique thread!
We are a bunch of ladies (and men) that share a love of Disney, boutique clothes and sewing! Even if you don't sew, please join in, you might just find a new passion!
Be warned, this thread is addictive, and we don't stay on topic!


"The bookmarks"
has TONS AND TONS of FREE patterns and sewing hints and tips. Most all of the hints and links posted here will go into the bookmarks as well tons of things I've found on the internet. I update if frequently, so check back often. There is a search function, which is great if you are looking for something specific.
http://www.mybookmarks.com/public/teresajoy

Group Photobucket Account
We have a Photobucket group with pictures of our creations. Please do not repost this link and the password on other message boards. A link to our thread would be preferable:
http://photobucket.com/disboutique
Password: Cinderella
For a detailed explanation, on adding pictures and tags click here:
http://disboutique.blogspot.com/2008...otobucket.html


Each person adds their own pictures to this account. Please only post your own pictures of your own children. Everyone is free to post pictures of boutique, custom outfits or anything you post in the thread.
Please add tags to your picture so that they are easier to find. Right now, we are adding a description, such as Princess, Aurora, and what pattern it is ie: Portrait Peasant Top, Easy Fit Pants.... You can add up to 20 tags per picture, so go ahead and use a few if it is appropriate.



We have made up a few "rules" along the way
1.Be nice, if someone isn't nice, ignore them "Where there is no wood the fire goes out."
If you feel that you MUST respond, do it in PM, do NOT bring it to the boards.

2.You MUST share pictures of everything (and unfortunately, we do mean EVERYTHING!
3.NO APOLOGIZING for how your kids look. That includes wet hair, messy hair, dirty faces, wrinkled clothes etc....We have come to the conclusion that ALL of our children are beautiful, no matter what!
4.No apologizing for messy houses. We like a good game of eye spy around here!
5. No apologizing for being "off topic". We like to have fun here, and are often off topic.
6. If you have a question, ask us, we'll do our best to help! Really, you can post questions here, we like that!
7. If you ask a question and no one answers, don't be upset. Either, no one knows the answer, or your post got missed. Go ahead and ask again!
8. The banana gets lonely dancing by himself, so there is a three banana minimum. We don't want lonely bananas on the DIS!

(and, just so you know, I do a mean dancing banana impersonation!)
9. Lots of the posters on here sell, but we are NOT allowed to talk about it on the thread. Check out signatures for Ebay and Etsy usernames, or just PM someone if you see something you like.




Abbreviations used:
YCMT- http://www.youcanmakethis.com Boutique style patterns you can buy (Look for CarlaC's patterns, they are great!)
CASE- Copy and Steal Everything
If it's posted here, feel free to copy it for your own PERSONAL use. Please don't resell other people's designs without first asking them if it's OK.
CAB- Copy and Butcher everything
Voldermort- Code word for Ebay
(We started out calling Ebay "The site that must not be named", and then it was suggested that we call it Voldermort or for short.
Targemort- Code word for Target
Waldemort- Code word for Walmart
Frankenpattern- To take several different patterns and put them together into one outfit


HOW TO POST PICTURES

1. Upload the pic of your choice to photobucket
2. Resize the pic in photobucket click on the thumbnail of the picture, it will open up, then click (above the pic)> resize > 15" screen- it will make you verify that you would like to resize the pic (I like the 800X600 size pictures instead of the message board setting, it shows lots more detail)
3. After the pic has resized, go to your album, below the pic that you would like to post, there are 4 different codes (email & IM, direct link, html code & IMG code) Click in the box that has the has the IMG code. It will look something like this [IMG]http: xxxxxxxxxxxxx
When you click on that box, it will light up in yellow, and say "Copied"
4. In the thread on the Dis (in another open window), click on "post reply". When you are ready to post the pic, right click - a box will open, click on paste. This will paste the link that you copied from your photobucket account.
5. Post reply. The pic should show up!


MULTI QUOTE TUTORIAL
At the bottom of each post, you will see a little blue box with a + sign it it. If you want to multi-quote that post, you click the + box and then move onto the next post you want to multi-quote and click the + box. After you've clicked all the posts you want to multi-quote, click on "reply" or "quote". All of the items you want to respond to should be in the reply box. Just put your reply to each post after the [/quote] for each post.

How to make thumbnail pictures in your reply:
When you click reply, the name of the picture will look something like this, but in [ _] brackets
{IMG}http://1234.photobucket.com/albums/1234/nameofthepicture.jpg{/IMG}
To make it a thumbnail, put th_ before the name of the picture, such as this:
{IMG}http://1234.photobucket.com/albums/1234/th_nameofthepicture.jpg{/IMG}
This generally only works for pictures that were uploaded to photobucket.

I made it.

I just posted on the other thread but I'll post again here sorry for being repetitive.

Is everyone getting their pettis from Sam's? Can someone send me the link (I apparently didn't save it the last time, I really would forget my head if it wasn't sewn on.) Is it really taking 6 months to get them or are they coming faster than that.

I'm hoping to get a couple for the fall.

Thanks in advance!

You need a buisness ID to order from them. Regular shipments take at least 6 months, but they are taking some rush orders, which take about 6 weeks.

I also made it here all by myself! I just meant to say on the other thread, Wendy, it looks like Camp Promise was wonderful. I love the picture of the guys modeling their aprons and I totally envy your minnie/mickey disco dot fabric find! I have been looking for that fabric for months!! Had I known, maybe I'd have driven up to Montana And Lisa, I love the finished Pirate Mickey outfit! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

ETA: I am having lots of issues w/photobucket today. I'm trying to update my TR and it is not cooperating!!

Also, does that striped fabric coordinate with the mickey? It was right next to it, but I wasnt sure. Also got some cool tink, snoopy and poohbear!!! Got some disney cuties for 1.50/yard - not my favorite, but the girls just love it!! All the fabrics were on clearance except the red/black mickey icons and the summer snoopy!!





Wendy

I AM SO EXTREMELY JEALOUS! I want 1/2 of those fabrics but my Joanns doesn't have them. My Joanns is really kind of junky when it comes to fabric and the local Hancocks closed during all that bankruptcy stuff. So I sit here and sulk while I watch everyone get such great finds!!! You are a lucky DUCKY!!!! I did drive to the next closest Hancocks last month and bought way more fabric than I need... And Minnie Dot... so life isn't so bad, just not so good sometimes either!

I made it - but I'm injured!

Whew I made it, but only after burning my fingers with the hot glue! I'm gonna be OK, but the housework's going to suffer.

I'm trying to finish up some simple appliques for the kids t-shirts, but they're not that simple. The kids are at daycamp tomorrow afternoon, so I think I'll pop out and try to buy a see-through foot.

Going to visit my parents this weekend, they live in the country now (after having lived their ENTIRE lives in Montreal - the greatest city in the world ) but the great thing about the little tourist town they moved to - is the fabric store!! You never know what you're going to find I can't wait! We have to bring our tent-trailer 'cause the reno isn't finished yet so the kids think it's "camping" without all the work - it's win-win I say.

Stephanie
(might not even be able to make supper with these burned fingers, I hope I can still dial the phone for take-out!)
