I finally have something I can share. I swear, I feel like I've been sewing constantly lately, but I have nothing to show for it. This took forever & I still have another one just like it to make, but it's going to have to wait a bit. That's too much applique to do again just yet.











Sad, dark pic of the shirt that goes with it & was actually finished for her birthday party last weekend.

Thanks for looking!
AWESOME!!!! I really love it!!

I love the pooh skirt too- that lumpy is just adorable!!!!

Could everyone please post any Very Hungry Caterpillar outfits? I think I want to make one for Hannah's 4th birthday, and am just not sure what to put where or if I want to cut the fabric!! I have the one that is white with little caterpillars and wording all over it, the one with the rows of food, and the panel that has a 2 large caterpillars, 2 large butterflies and 2 large leaves on it surrounded by all the different colored dots......It would be a size 4.

How cute is that ...... I love that innocence

That is a great idea, I may try and whip one up before my mum comes for dinner tomorrow. She doesn't travel much anymore because my dad has dementia and it is too hard to get travel insurance, but she still comes here for overnights sometimes. Thanks for the idea

Wow you all move fast! I still have to catch up on the last thread, but just thought I would share something else I made. I made this Fancy Nancy dress for Taylor, she wore it to my brother and future sister in laws wedding shower today. She thought the fancy nancy dress was her flower girl dress lol, we are going to have to convince her she can't wear it to the wedding.











Here is the Fancy Nancy bow that is on her head




Here is me with Taylor, and she was too excited and gave me my mother's day present early.... it's on my arm.... the girl has good taste, she insisted Daddy take her to buy me a new coach purse and she picked it herself!



Now I need to go catch up, and then start working on the 24 applique t-shirts I need to make for Taylor's class to wear to Sesame Street Live

Ok, quickie question. I did an applique shirt late last night, and I had my fabric a teenie tiny bit off so when it did the tacking stitch, a tiny spot of the applique fabric didn't get tacked down, it was too small. I was hoping the satin stitch would get it (it was that close) Well, the shirt is certainly wearable and looks great but if I pull at that spot I can see that's it's going to pop out and fray, probably when I was it. Is there anything I can do to fix it? Something to permanently hold it down? I could always do a slightly larger satin stitch over it, but it might look funny? Clear nail polish maybe ??(that's all I could think of!)
I would put some liquid stitch on it.

We lucked out this year and had a friend on staff with enough extra tickets that we didn't have to camp out, but I have overnighted the last two years. I think it is so much better than general seating. I would much rather have a long night well in advance of the recital than have to get there way early on recital night. We are tired enought by the time we are there from 4:00 to midnight for rehersal the day before. DD6 really HAS to sleep in the next day if she is going to dance 5 numbers. We had people lining up outside the civic center doors at noon on recital day for a 6:30 pm performance. That makes for really cranky dancers by 11:00 when the last number rolls. It also cuts down on having to referee seat saving. That coudl be a nightmare in and of itself. This way no one has to get there before the doors open at 5:30 and vthe kids are in much better shape to dance.
I have been reading about you ladies and the recitals- I think it's awful you have to go through this at all- the whole concept turns my stomach- that you have to do this to see your own child perform!???
My kid wouldn't dance if I don't get to see her.

I can't believe it! I JUST bought that pattern on Monday!! So cute and roomy, I saw it done up in fabric with jelly beans and M&Ms and it made me think it would be great for kids to put their stuff in, or doll clothes, markers, etc
LOVE this Wendy!

Oh, everyone that wants a seat gets one, the question is which seat. We do reserved seating on the floor and those tickets sell out almost completly that first day except for the far sides in the very back section. General admission seats are balcony and there are typically tickets for the balcony left the day of the show. It is those of us who want to be front and center that do the crazy lines. It's important for me to have a good seat so I do it. We typically get seats either left or right of center. Center section seats on the floor are usually exclusively staff tickets. There are other mothers at the studio that really don't care as long as they have seat, so they don't stand in line.

It's great to see such wonderful outfits! We were last in FL for vacation 2 1/2 yrs ago. We spent one day at VMCP and then a few days at Sea World. I couldn't find ANY Sea World customs anywhere. I had a few cute outfits for the girls and then found out the week before our trip that there were record setting high temps the week we were going in December so I had to resew everything for them a few days before we left. I have since learned why sleeveless items are so amazing...you can add a t-shirt or turtleneck or leave them alone and then you've covered all FL seasons. I'll try to find the pictures and post some. It was wonderful at Sea World because the girls wore HUGE orange bows and I spotted them everywhere. I met up with hubby when we went to see Shamu and I spotted the girls in the completely crowded stadium because of their hairbows!!

This time we are going the week after Thanksgiving and I'm attempting to make many, many more outfits. I'm so glad there are organization nuts like me.

Okay, I made it back. After 6 weeks of cleaning and getting our house back into shape after my parents/brother lived with us, I am ready to start sewing. Only 41 days until DW and I don't have any of the outfits done. That is plenty of time, right? Hopefully I will be back soon to share some photos of some finished outfits!
