Maybe they will have a "soft" opening while you are there to make sure everything goes properly. I think that they frequently do that.

My serger class was just ok. I'm glad I didn't pay for it since she did a lot of talking but not much instructing. During the last 15 minutes I hurriedly asked the questions I had. She just read the manual to "teach" us how to do a rolled hem. Talked a lot about classes she had taken back in the day and the old sergers and just meaningless stuff.

Sooo...my photopass CDs came today, and will more than 800 to chose from I picked a few to share. I aimed for 4, settled for few more than that...
(I made them smaller than usual since I already took up so much space. but if you click on them you can see them larger on flickr.)

First, my duo the 1st night meeting the Big Man for the 1st time. It was TOO cute. I am SO thankful the PP photog got so many great ones, since I took exactly 1 photo of this moment. And then 3 days in one of the kids broke my camera. Totally worth the money in my opinion.


And here is the much-requested all of us in our bowling shirts photo. I love this photo and I think it showcases the shirts great too.


I made my friend go meet Sully and Mike W just for the photos. They LOVED her shirt.



And with Donald at our Safari breakfast, all of our shirts together. Can't tell that Minnie mouse shirt was 3 tries and almost drove me to the brink of insanity. Also, the embroidery area is about 3" thick since it is many layers...


My boys got lots of comments on the cute Halloween "Pajama pants" but I think they looked adorable. And when we got home, my husband unpacked them into the PJs drawer so I guess they are PJs.


My favorite shirts (it was a tough choice) for my boys were these pirate shirts. And they got to meet Hook and Smee, which blew their little pirate-lovin' minds.

And Peter Pan told them he really liked them and wanted to take them back to Never Land with him, even though they were pirates.


And our whole group photo at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. I made the boys' costumes, my husband's Peter Pan shirt and hat, my costume and a shirt for Tick Tock Croc (which was green on green and just said Tick-Tock on the belly.)

I was so bummed, I had the boys posing in front of Pirates of the Caribbean in their costumes and they totally hammed it up, the photos turned out so bad, they are so washed out you can barely see. But 5/800 isn't bad...

And finally, the whole fam at Chef Mickey's, you can see my husband's shirt, the boys' shirts and pants and the polka dots of mine, it has Minnie on it, but she's hidden.

we look like a tired bunch who had a very full week at Disney.

As for my little Disney souvenir plague, unfortunately I am still pretty sick. I now have a horrible cough and ended up at the Doctor today because I was coughing up blood. He said it is just a virus and there's not much I can do. Thankfully my lungs were clear and Oxygen levels normal, so no pneumonia. He said it was likely the flu, which btw has been a terribly crummy way to spend the week.
Your work looks amazing and I love everything you did! What a cute family you guys are! So sorry you are still not feeling well. Hope you get better very soon!

I am so sorry - but I jsut have to share one more bag... This bag turned out so awesome, the fabrics were perfect for it, and I just love it... It was my first time using Fairy Frost, and that fabric is just gorgeous. The texture of it is a bit different than what I usually use - but it really made this bag more "formal" looking? I would never use it for all of my bags, however - I can really see certain bags taking on a whole new effect with this fabric.





Thanks for letting me share - again.

Don't apologize for sharing your awesome work! That is strictly forbidden. I think everyone on this thread wishes we could do what you do so well.

Actually, the soft opening begins on November 19th, so you'll be good to go. You can check out BOG for lunch which I hear is absolutely amazing. You order from a kiosk and sit down and your meal is brought to you on a little trolly and served on china with real silverware. We have an ADR for dinner on the 28th of November and I hope to eat lunch there as well. You will have a blast with your friend!

Okay, I have to ask you all. Am I the only one who does this? Buy fabric I love so much I don't want to cut into it??? It's really crazy. I have Christmas fabric to make skirts for my Granddaughters and you all were so helpful suggesting patterns for them and I keep putting off actually cutting the fabric. I did this a long time ago when Holly Hobby was popular. I bought a brushed corduroy fabric with HH on it and never used it because I hated to cut into it!! I think back then I was afraid I would ruin the fabric. Ended up selling it at a yard sale so someone with small girls could get some use out of it. Tell me I'm not the only one who feels this way!! Is there a cure???

I do the same thing, the first cut is always the hardest!


On another note, for all that do embroidery and applique on a machine, I was wanting a program that I could combine designs, or create my own. I was trying to research online, but the options are overwhelming. If you use a program, what do you use, and what would your recommend? Thanks

Thank you so much for sharing the pictures. The adult bowling shirts were great - I hope you will give them a whirl again at some point even though you had problems with this set. I hope you will feel better soon. Please make sure that you take some time off and give yourself time to heal.

Thank YOU for sharing the bags and please don't apologize for sharing them. I enjoy seeing your work (especially now that I have seen one in real life)! The fabric does add another dimension to the bag. I can't wait to see what else you come up with!

Too bad the serger class was not good - I hope you had fun broswing around and shopping before the class.

Nope, I am the same way. I have some fabric that I have been hoarding since I don't know when and I still can't cut into them. I think we have a Fabric Hoarders Anonymous Club going here at one point, though I am still waiting for my membership card.

I use Stitch Era which is a free program. It is NOT the most user friendly software but it does what I need. I dabbled into digitizing my own designs with that software but I simply don't have enough time to be good at it. I will use my own design on my own things but certainly I don't feel confident enough to sell them.

I'm the same way. My problem is I wing it all the time and hate wasting good material on one of my Wingings Gone Bad.

Maybe if you try to concentrate on the girls actually wearing the finished project...

This is so sad - I know how much you were looking forward to this class... FWIW, I learned my serger totally and completely on You Tube... You'll probably find just what you need to learn if you search for it, and have much better luck.

Believe it or not - I do have a philosophy about this - and I have heard that it's helped many people cut into their fabric... Are you ready for it???

Wait for it...

Wait for it...

Go ahead - cut into it... How much did it cost you? Really... Maybe $8 or $9/yd??? Perhaps a little more? If you cut into it now and "wreck it" - you can still buy more. All your out of is your time. So, go grab that scissors and wreck it! Then go buy some more.

Love seeing all your outfits in action. They all looked amazing.

Sorry to hear you were still not feeling well. Those type of Disney souvenirs you don't want to linger

No No No .... you can never cut into it because it might NEVER be available again.

And that is why you have to stock up and buy the whole bolt... just in case

So sorry that your class wasn't everything that you hoped it would be. How frustrating!

I have to say that I don't really feel the same way. But I absolutely understand why you feel that way. I agree with Dorine. I figure that the most I can waste is a few dollars and a little bit of my time. I have cut into plenty of fabric, started something and then ended up ruining it. It is all part of this hobby. Sometimes I can save whatever it was that I was making and sometimes I can't. The good thing about fabric is that there is always so much more that I want versus what I can actually use!

And that's why we too much money on Etsy for little bits of fabric that I saw somewhere one time and we NEED to have! Like that fabric that I saw on FB recently with the pink and purple castles. I nearly broke down and ordered it right that minute even though I am trying to sew only from my stash right now. It is so hard to quite buying fabric cold turkey!

Hi Everyone - so sorry I haven't been posting much lately, lots of "stuff" going on right now - my health (possibly my gallbladder now), hurricane Sandy stuff (our house in Ocean City was heavily damaged), and my cousin with all the kids that I have sewn for was just diagnosed with Esophogeal Cancer on Friday.....

BUT - on a HAPPY NOTE!!!!

Shawn-Brooklyn is going on his MAW trip!! He is taking a 4 day Disney Cruise followed by a day in each park! Please come and help him have a wonderful trip! He is finally healthy enough to travel, and has been sick most of his life. He has had his transplant plus weathering complications and is ready to go and meet MICKEY MOUSE!!!!!!


If you aren't already a member of the Big Give, please come and join us, we'd love to have you!!! Just click on the link in my siggie!!!

Thanks so much friends!

FABRIC?!?!

Can anyone point me in the direction of some good online fabric stores?? I checked out the bookmarks and all the "obvious" stores like JoAnne's, Hancock, fabric.com, etsy, eBay...

I'm looking for a place that sells "euro/boutique" type fabrics. I'm specifically looking for a nice striped knit.

Any ideas?! Thank you!!

I have never bought from here but found the selection unique. I'm not brave enough to tackle knits just yet tho!

Any other ideas??

Try the Fabric Fairy http://www.thefabricfairy.com/

or the Purple Seamstress on FB. Honestly I get much of my knit fabric on Etsy. There are always people on there who have a great selection. They also have knits from Ottobre on there. Definitely very European looking but the prices are super high! I love working with knits.
