I wish I knew how to digitize, but maybe I can trace and do hand applique.
Not sure on the smaller features though, how do most people do those?



OR



I love the skirt! If it were me I would do just the tv on the back...just applique the main parts of the tv and paint or use buttons for the knobs. I might add the boomerang behind it though too since to me nothing represents that era more than that boomerang design. My grandma has the design all over her kitchen table and counters....lol.

I want to make a bowling style shirt to go with it. It will be white and the placket, collar and sleeve linings will be black/white check.

What I need is an idea of what to put on the back of the shirt? Something with a bowling shirt/disney/50s style theme? I was thinking to just use the sign from the 50s prime time cafe? But I would have to do that by hand or digitize it (which I don't know how to do, but I did download a free trial of digitizing software)

If someone has any better more creative ideas let me know.

I can post a picture of the skirt later (after work) if that would help with the creative process.
This is my Pluto skirt. I didn't think to do anything to the shirt. I just found a polo that I thought sort of reminded me of 50's. A do kerchief that we put on her pony tail. And cat eye sunglasses. I also think I found "spaldings" from Payless that were super cheap and worked for her in comfort.



I love your skirt. The color really makes Pluto stand out.

Chase's outfit -



For his sister -

The boys got cars. I almost went with Wall-E but changed at the last minute. He told me last night they were going to watch Wall E today and today is the day he took them in!



Now onto outfits for us for SWW!
Jessica, I love the Big Give outfits!! That Tiana is so cute!
You are so nice making all those crayon rollups!!!

I have the older one from Walmart, the 270D. The built in designs are not very good. They don't stitch out well, and they are all fill. Save the money and just buy Heather's designs, you will be a lot happier with them.

It was perfect! The gathers were even and perfect! After I finished using the serger, I went to put it on the hanger...where I discovered, I put the skirt on BACKWARDS!!!

Take two...it was going ok, not as perfect as the first time, but OK. After I removed the pins and took it to the serger...I discovered the bobbin thread had ran out about half way through!

Take Three... well, let's just say it is on! No where near perfect...in fact it looks terrible! I put it up...I'll go back to it sometime in a few weeks! Right now, I don't ever want to see it again!


....so how has YOUR day been?

PS...thanks for the inspiration on the MVMCP...keep 'em coming!
UGGH!!!! I know just what you went through! It seems like I do my best work on things I sew wrong!!!

Oh, and where does everyone get their Minnie big dot fabric from. Joanne's only carries the small dot.

THANKS!!!
That sounds like the same T-shirt I used for Lydia's Thing 1 outfit. I thought it looked fine. And, if I EVER remember, I'll post a picture here!

I got my Big Dot Minnie at Hancock's. If you can't find it, send me a PM. It's the same stuff I used on the girls' Audrey skirts.

I love the Prime Time Cafe sign best!

Great news about Geneva!!!!

Thank you on the other matter. My friend was 6 months along. Her son had a genetic heart defect. It is not her first. She has a daughter who will be 2 next month. She is doing ok. She is Hindu so they have very different philosophical ideas about death than I do. I think her beliefs are actually helping her get through this as well as she is.

That's neat that they are both Ashley and exactly the same age. Difference is we will not be having any little sister here, only an older brother.

I still have to buy tickets for MNSSHP..We are going for 8 days, with 6 days of parks, one travel day and one water park day.

So that means potentially 7 outfits for each of the girls!! WOW! I haven't sewn like this for a trip before! Or if I did, it didn't seem like a lot at the time!
Maybe because Megan was an only child and her clothes were little!

Lets see...
something Tink
something Dumbo
something Belle
mmmmm.....something mickey
Oh! Something Nemo for sure!

Hannah's will be easier I think...
But Megan will need a feliz, some audreys, simplysweet....easy fits....custom Ts...
and DH saw the shirts I made the men for the Big Give and said he would be interested in having one! SO- Probably HS's Goofy and Donald shirts for him!
The trick will be making them and not letting him wear them til the trip!
Congrats on a trip planned!

You iron the paper with the logo and the outline is then transferred onto the fabric. Then you just paint away using fabric paints. I like to use SoSoft paints by DecoArt. If you can color or paint by number you can do this. It is really easy and you get great results.

That is how I painted this logo for our Tiana Vida:
Thanks for the input. That Tiana vida is really cute! After reading all the suggestions I think I will try to hand applique the prime time sign, and possibly paint on the smaller details. We'll see how that goes and I will post the results if successful.

Thanks for your ideas. What kind of fabric pens do you use? Just permanent markers or are their special fabric pens to buy?

That is just gorgeous! I'm sure she will love it!

Thanks for your help. I think I will try to applique some of the sign, not sure how much detail I will include until I see how it looks. I definitely won't be adding the coke advertisement

I am finally remember to post the Dr. Seuss Audrey skirts! I made these for our Islands of Adventure day. Lydia wanted to be Thing 1 and Arminda was Thing 2. Then, Brian asked if I could make shirts for everyone! I love that man!

So, here are too many pictures for yah!

I took these pictures AFTER they wore them all day! So, they are a bit wrinkled and not real clean!

Front of Lydia's Skirt, with Fish and Thing 1



Instead of the Fish, Arminda had the Cat in the Hat, and Thing 2 on her skirt:


And the back of both of them looked like this.

If I made them again, I think I'd leave out the white and aqua ruffle.

You can kind of see Lydia's shirt in this one. It's gathered at the neckline.


A fairly bad picture of everyone, but the only one I have of us all together!


And, just my family


Lydia in "line" (there was no line though!) for the Dr. Seuss ride:


We had a lot of fun at IOA! The park was EMPTY! Everything except that tower thing was a walk on, and Corey and Lydia went on that and were done within 10 minutes of going into the line! They were the only two that went on it. And, since I'm posting pictures, I'll post that one too.

My finger is over Lydia, but you can see Corey.


Without the finger in the way:


and, it went way up:



I was really hoping Lydia would be too short for this ride, it scares me! She didn't mind it at all though.

You did go buy a lottery ticket? Didn't you?
I was hoping you would post this again!!! It's one of my favorite outfits, and such a cute picture!!!

How are you doing? I've been thinking of you so much.

Anything bad about going then? Why is it cheaper??
My laptop that I have only had for a month decided to just stop working. The hard drive has to be replaced. I am on my DH's computer, but will check in soon.
Also does anyone know if I can celebrate my Hannah's birthday while there and actually say its her birthday?? Her birthday is on November 23rd.. My DH is offshore then so we can't go then. Does it matter to them at all?? She is set on having her birthday at Cindy's castle... I'm hoping they won't care that it is 2 weeks later.


Alicia - Her shirt is great! You made a great save!
No problem with the birthday.

I really love the Poly. Such a great location! Love the beach, tiki torches, lush landscape, watching the castle change colors, the Electric Water Pagent....if you're booking a garden view I like the Tokelea (sp?) longhouse-bigger rooms, all floors have balconies and a great central location.

Early Dec is a great time to go-you'll love it. Just make outfits that can be layered as it can be 90 or highs in the 40s.

Here is a link to the line so you can see what I am talking about http://www.michaelmillerfabrics.com/...ower%20Fairies...

I wanted something totally different from dd's room. It looks like a pink and purple princess bomb went off in there...lol. I also hope this is a design that she won't grow out of too soon.

What do you guys think?
What a great line of fabric!!!

Test Track???
My youngest DD was tall enough to ride both of these at 3 1/2. Before I took her on Soarin I didn't understand why there would be a height restriction. She HATED it! She was a bit afraid of heights. She tried to climb out of her seat the entire ride. I kept her down and tried to shield her eyes and ears. She declared she would NEVER ride it again. On the same trip she LOVED Test Track!!!

Next year at 4 1/2 she wasn't crazy about going on but did it willingly sitting between me and her older sister. This time I think she was old enough to realize it was "just a movie". She LOVED it and insists she ALWAYS has.

She's now 7. She rode Everest at 5 and hasn't been back on yet but I think she might want to try it this summer.

Those are ALL so great! Sure they will all be well loved. I would never have the patients to make enough crayon roll ups for an entire class.

You iron the paper with the logo and the outline is then transferred onto the fabric. Then you just paint away using fabric paints. I like to use SoSoft paints by DecoArt. If you can color or paint by number you can do this. It is really easy and you get great results.

That is how I painted this logo for our Tiana Vida:
WOW! That is painted! I might have to try painting a shirt for DS-he wants a Carousel of Progress T.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that!!!!!

I sure do love me some butt ruffles. Your Walt & Mickey came out great. I need to practice on the small space stuff. Any tricks?

Question----Does anyone know of a Ratatouille embroidery design?

I have looked all over etsy and can't find one. We are going to France for lunch during our trip and hope to see Remy. I was thinking a dress for DD with the Eiffel tower material and Remy embroidered on. I have a 4x4 hope, and I don't think I am good enough to do a design by hand.

Thanks

April

Anita~your sample dress is amazing! Love it!

Where is the best place to buy the Vida pattern? My girls would like for me to use that to make their Thanksgiving outfits this year.

Also, any suggestions on where to get Grinch fabric? That's what my 7yo would like for her VMCP outfit. Thanks.

We really need to decide this week what we will be doing for the park days. We priced it out and the children are saying they would rather have a 6 day ticket instead of a character meal. We would make them with no expiration so we could spread the days out over a vacation now and then another the following year. I think the thoughts are that if we do that then the following year we would have enough money for some character meals since we wouldn't have to buy our tickets. We can use our GAD tickets as a credit towards the 6 day purchase. I guess I could make a reservation just for Chef Mickey now and then cancel closer to the date if we end up having enough money for the other tickets. (Children are now motivated to declutter because we are following Dave Ramsey's advice and not charging a thing. ;-D) Perhaps I could mark the 6 week out date from our trip and make that the deadline to cancel our ADR.

Guess I'll try to go back to bed in a bit. Geneva appears to have a tummy bug and is still running a fever, even after Motrin. BTW, if you have any children's Tylenol then you need to check to see if it's been recalled. We don't use it often but have it here in case someone has a high fever or can't sleep. Ours was recalled so I'll have to call in the morning to see what to do. It wasn't recalled during the previous two recalls but is now.

I forgot to share Geneva's caring bridge site and will try to remember to add it to my sig line.

caringbridge.org/visit/Geneva

I haven't updated the pictures because I haven't figured out how to resize them yet. I know. Again, another pathetic techie problem for me.
