I just tried typing the entire address in and still no luck! If they don't get it back up then all of the patterns that we have purchased and kept stored there for easy access will be lost. I'm not a happy camper! I don't have all of my purchased patterns saved anywhere. I think if it comes back up I'm saving all of my stuff to my external hard drive!!!

Thanking the good Lord I downloaded my patterns to DS computer. I'm going get a pendrive & putting them on there too right now. I was planning on spending today sewing.

That is what I want for Mother's day....some free time, but DS is schooling today. Hopefully I can get most of the day to sew.

I am so sorry to hear this It sounds like your Mom is a fantastic woman and shared much love with you and your family. Keep strong and remember that each time you sew or do something that you would have done together she is there, sitting right next to you, giving you strength and support.
Keep strong and know that she is with you.....

Well, that's weird, I can get in there from both AOL and IE with no trouble. Here's a link I just made by going there, so I know it worked just now, for me...please try and see if it works for you.
http://www.youcanmakethis.com/index.htm?

Also, when it does work for you, if your patterns in the library don't work for some reason, just send them an email, and they will fix it for you. I had a few several months back that the link kept coming up as expired for download, and they re-sent me without any troubles. It did take a day or two for them to respond to that, I think it was a weekend.

Anyway I haven't done much Disney-specific sewing except for this outfit which has been very popular in my Etsy shop:








I am getting lots of ideas on here and can't wait until my sewing schedule slows down enough that I can start trying them. I am going to be making my girls a Jesse shorts set to go to the Toy Story 3 premier!
Very cute! Welcome to the new world of posting here...keep posting! We love it.

I love them both!

Aisling did a great job on her fabric choices!! I really like the bright and wild! Its fun!! Peach would have probably picked something very similar.

Sad, dark pic of the shirt that goes with it & was actually finished for her birthday party last weekend.
Super adorable! I love the owl. Good old classic Pooh!

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 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
That dress is really cute. Good thing Peach didn't see it. hehe and what a nice Mommy's day gift!!

VHC? Sure! I only had a bout 2 yds of the little caterpillars & words so I ended up doing a LOT of applique.








adorable! you did a great job.

Anyway, I won't bore you with all the pics at once, so I'll go chronologically.

Day 1
Epcot; Nemo outfits GM is modelling the ladies t's; the guys are wearing mickey t's w/ the Nemo fabric.


I'm sending pics to a wonderful bling maker for matching jewels for DD each day (that will be her birthday present); but am going to have to think about perfect hair accessories soon. Anybody w/ great bow/shoe ideas, please lmk!
Thanks for lookin'!
HOLY SMOKIN' SEWING MACHINE! you were bustin a move with all those creations. I love the Nemo stuff.

I wonder if ycmt just isn't working for internet explorer.

I just saved all of my patterns on 2 other computers in the house & my old school teacher pen drive.

Looking at the stuff saved on my old teacher drive brings back memories of a life time ago. I must say that I don't miss teaching. I have so much work on that drive & most of it fell on deaf ears. Sewing is much more fun & there are no discipline issues that can't be solved w/ a ripper & embroidery snips.

Does anyone have a snuggy like pattern for an AG doll? Georgia got a Tinkerbell one for her birthday, and I found some fleece Tink fabric that matches nearly 100%! I wanted to make a matching one for her doll too.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how hard it is to deal with the loss of your mom while also contemplating finding a new place to live. My mom passed when I was 21 and we'd lost my dad and youngest sister less than a year before so I was living with Mom so she wasn't alone. I hope you're able to take a little time before you have to begin looking for a new place.


YCMT - I just checked and when I go to http://youcanmakethis.com I do get the notice that the domain expired. However, when I add 'www.' before youcanmakethis, it worked. I was able to log in, browse, etc. plus I've gone back a few times and reloaded the page to be sure it's still there. I think the comment earlier that YCMT may have let an alternate domain name expire (hopefully they'll fix it ASAP) is likely the cause but the website itself is acting as usual otherwise. Hopefully those who've had problems getting to the website will have more success if they use the www. version of the URL.
