Most people use ribbon. You can use grosgrain or satin ribbon. (Satin seems to come untied a little more often) You can knot one end and stitch the other to the dress.

You might have noticed that my boyfriend glitters. It's just something that he does in the sun. Don't worry about it.

Please know you and your DH are in our thought and prayers. I can't imagine how scary this must be for both of you, I'm so sorry your going through it and will pray that the surgery is successful and recovery is swift.

I used a matching ribbon, attached it in the center from (wrong side) and tied it around the neck.

Misty ~ Your shirts look great!

How fun to be able to meet Heather!

I will definately be praying for both of you on Tuesday. Hopefully this will bring answers to you sooner as well as relief after the surgery is completed.

Welcome. I was going to suggest ribbon as well. Do you have a sewing machine or would you be doing this by hand? If you have a sewing machine this would be a great start for you to learn how to sew!

For under $10 I got enough fleece to make 3 of these! Win!

This is the one for my nephew, who is a large kindergartener, modeled by one of my 3 year olds who wears about 3-4 sizes smaller than the nephew, hence the comically large shirt.



The pattern was super easy and went together really fast, I should have no problem whipping up the others in time for Christmas. I always see fleece in the remnant rack and never knew what to do with it, now I will have to keep a lookout, since we do have a fair number of cold months around here.
This is so cute! I love that you made it with fleece... There are sooo many cute fleece fabrics out there, and I always want to make something with them. Great idea!

Friday 11/23 - Magic Kingdom again. I didn't actually make these outfits. I bought them on Zulily. I am not thrilled with the quality however as the skirt separated from the yoke halfway through the day and this was the first time she work it.

And last but not least - Saturday 11/24 at Epcot. I love these dresses. I love the elastic casing in the back. The dress really came together very nicely and they looked so cute in them.

And just to show off the back of the dress

I love how all of these turned out. Such a bummer that the one outfit came apart so quickly.

A new dress pattern. It is called the Butterfly dress. It was a great pattern and I'm planning to make at least a couple more.


And then this one is the Oliver+S Ice cream dress pattern that I used a couple of weeks ago. I increased the width of the bottom part of the dress so that it was twirlier. I think that the dress needs something but I can't figure out what.
Love everything! I've been thinking of you.

So sad my Art Gallery Poetica fabric is dwindling and I love it for Princesses though I do have a different line I am crushing on.
Did you post these in your PTR? If so, I missed them. Love how they all turned out - love the fabric you used for Aladdin!

Thank you again to everyone who helped with the blankets, I know they will bring many smiles to the children...unfortunately I don't think we will be able to meet them when we go since they won't be quite ready for them!
Lisa, I am so glad you are able to take this bittersweet trip... Please know that you and Megan are in my thoughts.

I will be making a cape to match with red lining and a sparkly light pink outside and another (for the copy of this dress I will make wiht slight changes) with red polka dots outside. Both will have an MM embroidered on the collar and the pink one will have an applique of Minnie on the back of cape.




detail of the extra I added to the ties and the piping down the front.

I love everything! What is that pattern you used? It's super flattering on you.

Now that I have figured out how easy that hoodie pattern is I have picked up a ton more fleece on remnants, since kids are small usually a yard or less works. I only have to attach hoods to 4 more I have made in the past couple days. Two are for my kids playmates who have a birthday saturday. My kids have a playgroup with 6 other sets of twins, and of the 7 sets, 5 have birthdays in november and december, so in addition to Christmas, I am making a ton of twin gifts.

The UP embroidery came from Heather Sue, she also has the Wilderness Explorer logo. I made the sweatshirt for a friend for her birthday, she wore it when we were in WDW last month and got a ton of comments on it. I lucked out and found the purple hoodie on clearance at Target, so I don't know how easy purple would be to find, but PM me and I would be happy to help you out. I already have the files.

Hoping to get the tree up and the house decorated today, also fit in grocery shopping and sewing. We have a twin day birthday party tomorrow in addition to the one saturday. Lots to do!

Diane,

I'm sure you won't be spending much time here (unless it's a needed diversion) but I wanted to let you know that your husband, you, your family, and his medical team are in my thoughts and prayers.

You're so right about the 'not knowing' being the hardest part.

Shalom,
Cheryl

The shirts are great, but I have to ask...the houndstooth - Alabama fan? I live in Alabama and that's all I think when I see any houndstooth anything.

Dianemom2 - prayers for strength for your family and that the worst part of the whole experience will be the not knowing.

I would suggest using grosgrain ribbon as they don't fray as easily as some other materials.

5 sets of twins' birthday gifts adds up in a hurry! I am sure that will keep you busy for a while. I hope you were able to decorate and finish grocery shopping today.

Hi Everyone!! I love seeing all the holiday cheer come out in those adorable outfits!!!

Well, last week instead of going to Disney, I had my gallbladder out on Friday. Woo hoo....no comparison to Disney. But its over and hopefully my body will be better than new. Right now I have lots and lots of nausea, which is discouraging, because that is one of my pre surgery symptoms!!! I also hope they will recommend a nutritionist for me as I am truely afraid to eat!! I've lost a ton of weight and want to keep it off too!!! I have a gurgly cough now, and it hurts to cough so I squeeze a stuffed animal and try not to cough so it doesnt hurt!! lol...

I have been getting some questions about how my cousin Steve is - thank you for keeping him in your prayers. He got a gtube on Thursday, and was discharged from the hospital at noon today - went straight to the radiologist who put on his radiation tattoos and that will start on Monday. He meets with the oncologist on Wednesday....whew!!! This is moving fast, but we are encouraged that his surgeon at HUP in Philly does this surgery (his will be in Feb or march) 80-100 times/year!!!! the norm for most places is 3x/year!!

QUestion - someone was super busy, and unable to do the eye spy bags for Shawn Broolkyn's big give - would anyone be able to fill in for her? Would also love some tie dye shirts as they are one of mom's favorite things!!!

Thanks so much, Wendy
