*CLOSED*MOVED*Disboutiquers Part 11 Kids Disney Boutique / Customs Clothes we sew

We have moved, please join us in at our new thread!
Part 12- http://www.disboards.com/showthread....3#post30390073



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!
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 the sewer if they post something that you like. We do not have an official list or a Disboutiquers website where we sell.


Big Give-
We make items for Disers taking Wish trips (for children with life threatening medical conditions) to Disney Parks. We would love it if you joined us! (Seriously, please join us and help out!) Please follow the link in my siggy or here:
http://www.disbiggive.com Thank you!


"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.

Per Jeanne's suggestion, and to save everyone time:

HEATHERSUE'S BESTEST APPLIQUE TUTORIAL HERE:
http://disboutique.blogspot.com/2008...-tutorial.html
Everything you could ever want to know to make beautiful appliques!



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: Enchanted
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.

Here's a video tutorial for posting pictures AND TAGS!!! to the Photobucket account, I would suggest watching it in "Full Size" to really see what I'm doing.


Mrsklamc started a FABRIC SWAP! If you are looking for something or have some fabric you don't want, come check it out!

FAQ and "Rules"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 knwo the Frontier is 8yrs now. I don't know about the others. I've only bought a Frontier, the others were last yr. I do know the Newer Britax RF limit is 35lbs now. I like the Frontier because it goes to 100lbs and you can use the seat belt with it later. You don't have to get another seat again. I know my kiddos will still be in a 5pt harness,a t the rate they are going they will still be int he seats when they get their drivers license

About the sale, it's all over online. Sept wasn't as good, but last Feb was. I'm hoping to be able to buy one, and it doens't happen while I'm in Disney world.
Thanks for letting me know! I love the Britax seats too.

I know we need to go to bed GoofyG. Gotta get up early in the morning.

Don't you just love our little spitfire!!!! She definately is trying but she is also a blast to watch her little mind working. Can't wait to take her back to WDW. She has the absolute best expressions when she see something. It's priceless.

you know, if you're in any type of car accident your insurance company should replace your car seats. Not a good reason to get in an accident, of course, but poohnpigletCA had a little tiny scratch and got new car seats! Almost makes me wish my son had the twins' seats in his car when he totalled it. Then I could have Britax seats!
And the only reason I shared that was so that I could put something on the first page.

I got reended, both girls were asleep. They stayed asleep when the accident happened.

I called the ladies insurance co, and told her that I ahd car seats. I was told I could go buy new ones and they would reimburs me, or send an e-mail of the seats I need and they will send a check out. I told them that I didn't have cheap seats, but no problem. DD4 was in a recaro young sport. (I really liked that seat, I like how the Britax can withstand a simple crash)

It was fun getting new BLVD's.
