Disboutiquers Part 12 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 one guy) that share a love of Disney, boutique clothes and sewing! We offer support to one another about sewing, Disney and life in general! We consider each other friends here, and we always love new friends! Even if you don't sew, please join in, you might just find a new passion! We share all kinds of things, they don't have to be Disney! And, you don't have to have sewn the items you post.

Be warned, this thread is addictive, and we don't stay on topic!


We are NOT a selling group, but lots of the posters on here sell, (lots of them don't too!) We are NOT allowed to talk about it on the thread, so please don't try! Check out signatures for Ebay 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. We are not a selling group, we are friends.


Big Give-
This is one of my favorite things about our group!!! This truly is what we are all about! We make items for Disers taking Wish trips (for children with life threatening medical conditions) to Disney Parks or Disney Cruises. You don't have to know how to sew to help out! 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
You will need to sign up for that site, but we are very quick to approve people. 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.
http://www.mybookmarks.com/public/teresajoy

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!
http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2048402



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 just posted this on the last thread. I guess we started the new one while I was typing. Here's a copy of the post.

Here my completed list:
2 Daisy Vida's, 2 Minnie Vida's, 2 Mickey bowling shirts, 2 Mary Poppins Vida's, 1 "Let's go fly a kite" bowling shirt, 2 Pooh & 2 Tink Aline's with 2 pair coordinating pants, 2 Nemo Alines, 1 Nemo bowling shirt, 1 Mickey bowling shirt, Handy Manny raglan, AK raglan, appliqued a polo shirt & onsie, 1 pant with zebra ruffle, 1 Dumbo appliqued sweat jacket, 1 Minnie appliqued sweat jacket, 1 Princess (with 8 princesses) appliqued sweat jacket.

They are wearing customs from previous trips the rest of the time. The only thing I didn't get done was the stroller blanket that DD (GoofyG) wanted me to make.

I still have about 15 pages to read on the last thread. It will take me forever to get caught up when we get back. Now you all don't be too gabby while we're gone.

Introduction

Hi! My name is Kelly and I've been lurking on your thread for quite a while. My mom sewed when I was a little girl and I would dabble with the sewing machine, but nothing major. Your thread inspired me to make first day of school outfits for my kids this past year. I have an almost 7 y/o little boy and an almost 5 y/o little girl. They've never been to Disney World, but someday we'll get there. I'm a dispatcher at a police department and we dispatch police, fire, and ambulance. I've been reading your stuff for so long that I feel like I know you. Is it ok if I post the stuff I've made even though it's not Disney?

I know. I just refolded my laundry from last weeks Dismeet trip and stacked them with the suitcase so they would be ready to go again. We've had this trip with DD and her kids planned for awhile. It's a big birthday trip, DD is turning 30 in April, DGD will be 5 in March, DGD will be 3 in April and DGS will be 1 in May. We are going before DGD2 turns 3 and we have to buy her a ticket. The Dismeet trip was a spur of the moment trip, just DH and I.

Hi I'm making a shameless post just to be on the first page!
I got the kids to nap at the same time today so I got to nap too so I am behind from today. But on the bright side I am feeling better!!
Good night all!! Well I guess it should be good morning!

okay, I didn't want to be up for this move - and I wasn't TRYING to make it onto the first page (yay me! ) but it's going to be a long night.

Sierra is "sharing" me at school tomorrow. I'm the sewing auntie - the fairygodmother - the one who just whips Clara Schumann out of my...head

So what does one wear when one is being shared at school?
More importantly, though, whatever possessed me to say at 7:30 this evening that I would make a crayon roll-up for each child in her class? That's 20 crayon roll-ups.
I got home at 8:00 from Girl Scouts, looked through fabric, began the project after that. I'm using the "hands around the world" fabric. I've NEVER made a crayon roll-up.

It's 11:45 in California. I have to be at Sierra's school at 8:20. Yay me.

You sound like the Bestest Auntie EVER!!!! I'm sure she loves you dearly!!
Good Luck with the crayon roll ups!!
I'm sending you some sewing pixie dust!!
