Sorry that you were sick and didn't get your planned stuff done. But you can always use it next year. Wendy did some adorable pajama bottoms with each leg a different fabric. Since you have one leg already cut out, you'd just need to cut out the other leg to finish them up.

My in-laws used to have a condo in Odenton. In Piney Orchard. But they live in FL full time now. It is a nice area.

I am definitely very critical of the things that I have sewn. I see all the tiny flaws because I know that they are there.

I do agree that it was good customer service. I will order from them again because of it.

Thanks Judy! I was glad that it raised a nice amount of money for the kids' school. Sometimes you just don't know how things will work out when you donate something. Some people don't appreciate custom made clothing. It turned out that woman who bought it wanted it so much because her last name is Tinsman and she loved the Tin Man on it.

Thanks I am glad to hear that my girls will eventually like my sewing again. I am not sure I could make bridesmaid dresses but I know I will enjoy making them other things when they decide they want me to sew for them again.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
Your DGD looks adorable in her dress! That dress was so beautiful! No wonder she wanted to wear it constantly. Sorry that your DGS didn't like his cape very much. Maybe he will warm up to it. I know how you feel though. I made one for my nephew and he wouldn't even put it on. My niece ended up taking it and making it her princess cape. I made the same capes for my cousins kids and they wouldn't take them off. You just never know with little kids!

I love all the capes. That's on my list to make for my boys. They have some that snap onto a shirt I made for the Twinsdays parade but they only work with 1 shirt. I'm sorry that both of you had cape recipients who were underwhelmed. I think my kids were too overly stimulated by Christmas to really appreciate anything. What fabric did you use? I've seen some on etsy that are satin but that seems impractical for toddlers to keep clean. I strongly believe that if its not machine washable it doesn't belong around kids.

My nephew loved his broncos bowling shirt. He wanted to wear it everyday he was here. Plus my brother was a little jealous because he said he wanted one too.

1st Pictures of the Wizard of Oz

Patterns being used are Grace and Lauren, a combination of the 2

This is the first panel completed - 62 steps for the main for characters on a single needle, the emerald city is machine applique, and the grass and yellow brick road are done on the machine by hand. The yellow bricks on the road were each sewed on individually using the sewing machine (man my hand was aching when I finished)


Here is panel finished with the 4 man characters - The tin man is silver and metallic and so is the emerald city.


I have 2 more designed, Panel 2 is stitching right now. Needs to be completed by 3:30pm tomorrow cause that is when we are leaving.

Love everything you've done so far. What a lot of work! It will look wonderful when you're finished, though and so worth it!:good vibes


I have to say for my DGS who didn't want to put the cape on, he is shy and doesn't like to be the center of attention and said he didn't want people to look at him and smile. He's 3.

Love all the new creations but just way TMTQ

It took me 14 months to finish our Trip Report, because life kept getting in the way; however, the story is now complete and I wanted to share the link in case any of you wanted to read about this incredible trip that has helped us endure these last 14 months.

We had so many of you who stepped forward to bless our family with the Big Give and I want you to know that there is rarely a day in my house that at least one of us isn’t wearing one of your amazing creations you made us. We are a huge Disney loving family from the tall to the small and we proudly wear our outfits everywhere, not just at Disney. It brings us joy and happiness to see the love that was poured into these outfits. Some of you have actually become my IRL friends.

I have Thanked you all by letter, sent postcards and Christmas cards and Thanked you here...but I wanted to say one more time to those who blessed us...THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. I know many may wonder if the Big Give matters...it did to us. I wasn’t on the DIS boards to have a Big Give and was actually a bit shy to accept it, I didn’t want others to think that was why I was here. I said yes because of my children and to see the joy on their face when they received the packages was priceless. Many of you were part of that journey, so I had to say one last time: THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

I hope, if you are inclined, you will come see the handiwork of your fellow Disboutiquers. I LOVE to come here and see the beautiful creations, although lately I haven’t had time to (in addition to all of our own health issues, my Dad was diagnosed with Cancer in August and spent 35 days in the hospital, 32 in Intensive Care and it has fallen to me to ensure he gets where he and my Mom need to be). To those who are gracious when I do get to drool over your beautiful work, THANK YOU! It is my desire to one day own an embroidery machine and it is fun to see what you are all able to create.

As you see I can be a bit wordy, and my TR is as well. Here is the Table of Contents so you can just read the actual journey if you so desire...and it is worth reading. Lisa’s wish was “To be FAMOUS at Disney” and she was in a HUGE way! It WAS the trip of a lifetime and many of you are part of that story.
You know we all love your family and I couldn't wait to sign up for something.

Congrats on your upcoming 10th anniversary trip (even though it is still quite a ways from now). We were joking at that at least people don't think we were newlyweds anymore during our 10th anniversary trip (we were mistaken as newlyweds a number of times during our previous trips). I guess it must be the Pixie Dust that made us look like young newlyweds!

Wow you have been busy! Too bad the capes didn't go over well. Kids just have their own ideas sometimes! I am sure the recipients of your handiwork appreciated the gifts!

I would say that I never really went through a stage when I didn't want to wear/use my mom's creations (I remember a lunch bag she crocheted for me when I was in middle school fondly). However, the funny thing is that I am now sewing for her! She will see these patterns and ask me, can you do one in my size? I made her a Rebecca dress (SisBoom pattern) a few months ago but she hadn't made any requests lately.

We LOVE pictures of everything here, from Disney outfits to non-Disney gifts (which reminds me that I should post a picture of the casserole carrier I made for my sister-in-law). Remember, rule #1 is that you can't apologize for a messy background or kids with unruly looking hair.


Unfortunately it appears that someone in my office was in a very giving spirit and gave me their germs. I hope it is not the nasty flu that has been running around and I will recover very quickly. I need to travel out of town for a meeting on Thursday so I would hate to be sick and flying!

Silly ipad is not liking multi-quote today, so I hope I don't miss anything!

Lois - love the pic of your dgd in her dress! Hopefully your dgs will enjoy the cape out of the 'limelight'!

Scrap_heaven - the Wizard of Oz dress is looking amazing so far! Can't wait to see the finished work!

Flora - hope you feel better quickly! And thanks for the early anniversary wishes! We were considering a Disney cruise, but after sending for the video, we realized we'd much rather go to the parks. Hoping maybe to stay at Wilderness Lodge or the Poly!

Digistitches did a comparison of HeatNBond lite and other similar products that I thought you all might find valueable. Here's the link: http://www.digistitches.com/machine-...-tutorial.html I can't wait to try out the winner since I've never found HBNL to work all that well.

Regards,
C.

Silly of an adult to make clothes just for WDW? Thinking of making several. Were traveling with carry-on only. So smaller is better
I spent Sunday night on the computer looking for free patterns or ideas to make my oldest niece some more grown up looking dresses. I found one similar to this. I hope I remembered to bookmark the one I found for free!

I don't like buying patterns! I'd rather make my own.

Yes! I remembered, here's the one I found http://sewcraftcreate.com/2010/08/ma...sday-giveaway/ Just leave off the ruffles for adults or older girls.

I definitely would have wanted to spend a lot of money on it, it is os pretty and whimsical! I guess because I can't sew I truly see the value and really appreciate custom clothes. I have told Michelle and Andrea both, if I had an embroidery machine I think I would embroider the world....or at least every plain piece of material I saw.

I TWOO! One year David was the Tin Man and Christian the Scarecrow for Halloween. One year Rachel was the Wicked Witch and Lisa was Dorothy another year...we love Wicked, the Musical, Not sure how I feel about this new movie...

You know we all love your family and I couldn't wait to sign up for something.

I LOVE that you sew for your Mom! That is so sweet.

I go with the theory that if it is not machine washable, it doesn't belong anywhere near ME!
Good Theory!

Unfortunately it appears that someone in my office was in a very giving spirit and gave me their germs. I hope it is not the nasty flu that has been running around and I will recover very quickly. I need to travel out of town for a meeting on Thursday so I would hate to be sick and flying!
Praying you feel better soon!

newbie needs bernina help

I am new to this world of embroidery machines. I inherited my cousin's bernina 440qe. It would be so exciting if she didn't have to die for this to happen.
I have the machine, embroidery software on a laptop, module, hoops and many different feet and the BSR attachment. I really want to get started. But the machine won't turn on. I called a dealer and they said it may need a new circut board. Has this happend to anyone??

I know of no problems with the machine before her death and of course can't ask.

Also, can you get disney designs for the machine??
Thanks for any information.

Definitely agree that things for kids need to be machine washable! I remember when grandma gave me silk dresses for my toddlers. It probably cost more to have those dresses dry cleaned than it cost to purchase them!!!

When I was very young my mom made me lots of pretty dresses and outfits. I can remember how happy I was to wear them. But when I was about 10 she went back to work full time and stopped sewing all together. It is nice that you loved the things your mom made for you and it is really nice that you sew for her now.

Sorry that somebody at work was generous with their germs. I hope you start feeling better very soon.

Are you sure that you have the right power cord and that there is power at the outlet you are using? My dd almost made me send back her Kindle because it wouldn't charge. Then we found out that the outlet she was using to charge it had a switch that needed to be turned on. LOL!

If the machine needs a new circuit board, I would check into the value of the machine and compare that with the cost of the repair. With some machines, the repair can be more expensive than replacement. However, Bernina is a very good brand and is extremely well made. I have a Bernina serger which is an absolute workhorse and I love it!

Yes, you can get Disney designs on the internet and download them to your computer. Then you can transfer them to your machine. I think that Bernina's take two formats of designs. I think they take PES designs and another format but I don't remember the name of the second one.


So I bought this pattern a couple of days ago from a new pattern store. http://lilygiggle.com/shop/the-jaden-t-shorts/ It looks like a ton of fun. Today I went to the Salvation Army for their half price clothing sale day. I picked up 4 t-shirts for $1 each. I am hoping to turn them into some adorable shorts. I think it is going to take some creative cutting though.
