Great job on the bowling shirt and the dress. I really liked how you added the embroidery to the red part of the bowling shirt. The ship designs look nice too. I think the shirt came out nice. You should measure your nephew because that length might be perfect for him, you might want to wait a few months since you know how fast boys grow!
We are definitely feeling blessed right now. And it seems like some other health issues my husband has had for the last few months might be related to this as well. He's had terrible foot pain and it turns out that it may be related to his thyroid issues. Isn't that crazy!

My little nephew has Down Syndrome and like a lot of Down Syndrome children, he has a somewhat shorter and stockier build. I am going to have to try the shirt on him when I get a chance. Luckily, we aren't going on the cruise until June so I have plenty of time.

Not sure if I posted about our old cat on here -- he is 17 y/o and started losing weight and vomiting more than the usual a lot he always has. He is hyperthyroid. Vet is treating with food first but 3 days into the diet he completely stopped eating so we all became very worried. I ran out and got some wet food and he gobbled that up (He's never eaten wet in his life) so we had to buy cans of food that are over $2 each after having spent $25 on a bag of dry

Why do I always over extend myself?
They have changed the surgery date AGAIN! Now it is going to be this Tuesday. You all know that I am such a planner. So having the date changed 4 times is making me crazy!!!!!

Sorry to year about your cat. I agree that maybe if you mix some wet food with some of the dry food, the kitty will eat it. That's what we do for our dog. One tablespoon of wet food mixed in with her dry food gets her to eat her entire meal.

And you overextend yourself because you are a mom and that's what we do! I hope you can finish all the shirts in time. If I lived closer, I'd help you.

I definitley agree!


QUESTION??????
Has anybody ever added a sailor collar to an existing dress pattern? I am thinking of giving it a try and I did find a couple of tutorials. But I thought I'd check to see if anybody has any real life experience with trying this. TIA!

Thank you ! It's Simplicity 2917. I wore it this week and It still is not fitting quite right so I'll be taking it in some more under the chest.

I haven't but good luck !

I know I missed a few things but everything been looking great. Still under the fog of a whirlwind trip with barely any sleep but it was a lot of fun. I'm on about 4 1/2 hours of sleep right now. I'll post pictures of me in my creations soon.

Just a tidbit about my trip though.....

Just got back and learned some interesting things on my trip

I learned on the airplane down that you can buy tickets to the Main Street Electrical Parade. It's supposed to be a lot of fun and only about $50 to do.

I learned in Epcot that you can buy a half day ticket for half the price. Straight from a CM's mouth that worked a sales cart to a family asking about it. he was pretty positive that you could buy them at the ticket booth with no problems.

I also learned that with the new keys, you don't need to take them out of your wallet to open the door, just touch the whole thing to it and you are in.

The best thing I found out was an Echo spot in Epcot. I haven't seen anything about it here, that I remember, and Google searched but found nothing about it anywhere.

If you enter through the front and stand about 5 feet on the line in the pavement in front of where you get pictures taken in front of the ball. We were one of the few one's left in the park at the end of the night and were taking pictures when I stood in a that spot and everything I said echoed just enough. Not loud or anything but strangely. My friend tried and it happened for her too as it happened for the other two women that were there taking pictures also. It's probably right about a foot in front of where the tripod usually is for the photographer....

has anyone ever noticed that ?

My neice I will just make her a purse too but I'm clueless for my nephew, he's 14. The only thing I can think of to make for him would be to embroider something on a shirt. I don't know what to embroider and my embroidery machine is a Christmas gist from my parents so I would have to beg them to let me open it early, it's sitting under the tree right now calling my name to open it already. So after all that, what would you make for a 14 year old boy???
As the mother of 15 and 11 year old boys I would have to say that Easy Fits are your best bet. But I really liked a couple of the other ideas too, like the toiletry bag and the wallet with the itunes card. My boys still wear some stuff I make them, but it is only stuff that they ASK me to make and are very specific about what they want. I haven't posted pics on here in forever, maybe it is time to share again.

Wendy -- Hope you're feeling better soon. You've been feeling out of sorts way too long.

Diane -- So glad to hear some good news about your husband. Let it continue!
Cute. I like the idea of using those little fill designs on AG clothes.

Super ideas.

How about a scarf made out of polar fleece with a pocket in it for an ipod or a cell phone? I've seen those for boys and they are very cute! You could also do a travel bag for him. He is getting to the age where he will need a travel bag for his razor and shaving cream, etc.

Here is the front:


Here is the back:


I increased the size on the bowling shirt so that it would be a size 10. I think that the width will be right for my nephew but I think it is going to be too long. I might have to shorten it.
Good ideas for the teen, and I like the outfits for your niece and nephew. Glad you will have time to have him try it on too.

Here are a couple of the shirts my boys let me make for them lately. Here is Liam with "well if you HAVE to take a picture I will made a weird face". He asked me for a plain white shirt with Hakuna Matata in big black lettering.

We went to Universal Studios in October and I offered to make Tyler any shirt he wanted for the trip. His choice was a Minion.

What do you mean you can pay to go to the main street electrical parade? It's my favorite (I grew up going to Disneyland a lot when I was young, so I was super excited to see it at Disneyworld.) Do you get special seats?

Also, my key never worked without taking it out of my little plastic clip thing. I also had the "keys" for my boys, which were inactive under-3 tickets/no charging/no admission so maybe that was it? I carried them in case anyone questioned whether they were jumping the ropes coming in without a ticket.

Did you get to see the dragon flying over fantasyland? I saw a short video and it looked pretty cool.

I had ordered a box once before and built up a great stash. I am shocked how much fabric was in there. I have lots of ideas, ut no time to do them!

I have thousands of Ideas and no time at all.

Quick responses, because I have to run out in a minute:

Dianemom2 - hurray for the non horrible tumor. I'd call it the real thing, but I can't spell.

Everything looks great, per usual. And those of you creating for teenaged boys, I do not envy you. I have two 20 something nephews who are difficult to get gifts for, much less make them.

You can't really pay. The key opens the door to your room not getting in the parks without taking it out. And no, I did not get to see the dragon.

Remember me I feel like I haven't been on here is so long... but it really only has been a few weeks.

I know I missed alot of quotes.

Andrea.... why is it that I first thought of Heather's mickey flag heads

Judy all your stuff is great. I think I missed quoting the pictures

Great job on the peasant dress.

I just found this thread today and I am in awe of everyone's work.

I haven't sewed in years and now I want to start again. My mom and grandmom made all my clothes growing up. I started getting annoyed in about 6th grade ( I thought everyone else dressed so cool)....that is until I had a child and realized all the love they had for me. Now I miss their talent.

Thank you for inspiring me. I have both their sewing boxes and my mothers machine now. (they both have passed) and I am blessed they gave me this

Thanks for the ideas. Love the cruise outfits, I like the different blocking on the bowling shirt and the appliques. Sorry to hear about the surgery being rescheduled again but hopefully this will be it and you two can finally relax a little.

Welcome!! Break out that sewing machine and jump back into it.


Thank you all for the great ideas. 14 is definately a rough age to figure out. I will look at some patterns and see what I can come up with. Will probably do easy fits and one more thing.

Tomorrow is a big day for me. I will hopefully be doing the last step for my conditional job offer by taking my psychological test. As long as I pass, which should be no problem, I should be getting the official offer next week. I'm excited for this to finally come through, as much as I've enjoyed being at home for so long I could really use the job right about now.

Tomorrow is a big day for me. I will hopefully be doing the last step for my conditional job offer by taking my psychological test. As long as I pass, which should be no problem, I should be getting the official offer next week. I'm excited for this to finally come through, as much as I've enjoyed being at home for so long I could really use the job right about now.
Good luck today with the test and the offer, I hope its everything you want/need.

Thank you for inspiring me. I have both their sewing boxes and my mothers machine now. (they both have passed) and I am blessed they gave me this

Looking forward to seeing your creations. If you haven't sewn in years then digital patterns are probably new to you but they are a lot of fun. Check out youcanmakethis.com but be prepared, it addicting!

We went to Universal Studios in October and I offered to make Tyler any shirt he wanted for the trip. His choice was a Minion.

Here are the 4 of us on said trip.

I love the family picture and the shirts are great! You know my dd will never let me make her anything. But last year when she went to Universal, she wanted me to make her a plain white shirt with "I solemnly swear I am up to no good" embroidered on it. Your son's shirt made me think of that!

Dress for a launch

All the stuff is great. I especially love the Hello Kitty outfit my niece is a HUGE Hello Kitty fan. If she saw that picture I'd have to make one just like it! The launch dress was fabulous and I absolutely adore your upcycled t-shirt dresses. I've tried a couple of them but they don't come out as nice as yours do. I have another t-shirt put aside for an upcycle but other projects keep bumping it back.

Since my kids are older, I usually have a couple of hours in the afternoon while they do homework. I can sew and if they need something, they know where to find me. The only days this doesn't work out are the days where they both have lots of activities and I spend the afternoon rushing around.

Welcome to the group! Break out that sewing machine and get started sewing! My girls made me stop sewing for them by the time they were 9 and 10. Now I get to sew lots of little girl stuff for my 5 year old niece but I dread the day that she starts hating everything that I sew too.

I can't wait to see what you come up with for the gift. 14 is a hard age to sew for. I know from personal experience, except my two are girls. They hate everything that I make except for tote bags and purses.

Good luck with the job! I'll be hoping that things work out for you!
