Just so you know...... I ordered my PE770 in November. I can't remember off the top of my head what the end cost was BUT the other day I got a notice from amazon that I was getting $102 BACK because the export shipping changed prices. How freaking awesome is that. The money has already been credited to my Visa, very much unexpected and needed surprise.

Looking for patterns for baby/little boys

Hi Ladies:

I am looking for sewing patterns for baby boys. I have looked thru the pattern books but really there is nothing for boy, of course, lots for girls. I have a wonderful red fleece with black mickey icon heads that I have had for several years. I have a little 7 month old grandson and I would like to make a fleece outfit for him, pants and a pullover. Does anyone have a pattern to suggest. Are there any online pattern companies. I searched Simplicity, McCalls, etc.

Thank you so much for any leads.

Go to youcanmakethis.com. I love the scientific seamstress raglan shirts and the easy fit pants for boys. I made a bunch of the shirts w/ hoods out of fleece for my kids and nephew for Christmas and have made the pants lots (those only in cotton, never done fleece)
Lots of cute boy things. I think there's a 3-pack with those two and the bowling shirt (my favorite for boys) on there too.

I'm so sorry for the taxi duty but, while 40s must be a tough time to be pregnant, the babies are the best, said with no modesty at all because I am one. Mom was 40 when I was born.

And a Question for any of you PE770 Owners: I got mine last summer, around July-August. I love it. While I am hoping to upgrade to something with a bigger hoop sometime it is meeting my needs for now. But I have a recent/weird issue that I am not sure what to do. It used to alert me and stop stitching when the bobbin ran out, actually right BEFORE the bobbin ran out, generally with a few inches left. Now for the past couple weeks it happily keeps stitching for a LONG TIME, often finishing a step, satin stitching a couple of inches with no bobbin thread. I feel like I have to constantly watch it. Any thoughts? We do have a nearby Brother dealer, but as I mentioned here before it is run by a crotchety old dude who is way down on the PE770 and did a lot less helping and a lot more trying to upsell/belittling my choice in machine so I don't want to take it there unless I need to. For the record I am using the same bobbin thread I have always used: thread art, and wind my own bobbins. I did order pre-wound just because I am sick of winding them since I can't seem to remember to do it until they are needed. Figured I would try them. They aren't here yet to test.
Thanks in advance,
Jen
The shirts are cute and the boys, as always, adorable! I also love that last photo!!

As far as your problem, I was going to suggest that a good cleaning of the bobbin area might help. I have been having the same trouble with the bobbin thread running out without a peep from my machine that it was low. I read my manual under troubleshooting and it said the audible warnings may not work if the sensor is dusty or hasn't been cleaned. (guilty!) Hope this helps and you get it resolved soon.

Then the very beginning, maybe the first 10-20 stitches or so, will unravel. I've tried changing thread, changing the needle, switching out the bobbin, and adjusting tension and it still keeps doing it! It's very frustrating especially since I didn't have this problem at first. I have no idea what the cause could be! Anyone know anything about this?
Thanks!
How frustrating! So sorry you're having this trouble. I think if you clean the area, it would help. My husband uses "canned air" to clean our computers once in a while and I think that would work great on the bobbin area. It's a can of, well, air that is pressurized and it comes with a long straw-like attachment to get into tiny crevices and just blow them out. Hope this helps.

So sorry you're not feeling great right now. Hopefully, it will get better. Hope the strike ends soon.

WHOOOOOOTTTT!!!!! You're pg???!!!! That will teach me to not be absent minded in posting anymore! CONGRATULATIONS! I'm really happy for you and hope things get easier for you -- how far along are you? I had my dd at 39 (which makes no sense since I'm only 29 this year).

I totally second GoTeamWood and likewise was going to recommend the raglan and Easy fits from YouCanMakeThis.com. I'm sure there are other cute patterns there too.

Thanks everyone. I am 20 weeks along Andrea. I may not have posted on this thread but in my trip report. I am just tired. We have a lot of other things impacting us too right now.

My MIL is ill, this bus strike, we need to move things around because we have to do a home remodel to fit all the kids in. It is just a lot. Also with me being a high risk pregnancy due to my age and a rather horrid previous history things are just hard. I am trying to do what I can but it is beginning to feel like the walls are closing in

We are super excited though and hope that we find out what the baby is at my next sonogram in a couple weeks.

Awwwww! Such cuties! Sorry I can't help with the PE770. Maybe there is another store nearby? Or a Babylock dealer which might also service Brother products???

Very smart to directly ask your SIL. That way you will know if she will appreciate the gifts or not. Those little pants are adorable!!!!

Try looking at Youcanmakethis.com. Anything by CarlaC (The Scientific Seamstress) will be well written. Also try Fishsticks http://fishsticksdesigns.com/ She has lots of really cute patterns and the one that I have from her is very well written.

Sorry that things are stressful right now but I'm sure you are ecstatic about this. I hope that things settle down. It is good to get all the house stuff out of the way now before you get too far long and get tired. Can't wait to hear if you are expecting a boy or a girl.

Never heard of rot resistant thread, but try Marathon thread.

I, for one, am glad that the thread doesn't move too quickly these days as I haven't had much free time lately. I look forward to seeing the picture of the dress.

I miss seeing all the others great stuff and keeping up with them, but I can certainly understand not wanting to post in both places. I guess FB is easier for most

I've been quiet b/c I haven't been sewing. I started jeans for dd, but didn't get them done yet since ds was sick and home from school. His being sick was not the problem, rather we have a sibling policy at our school where if one child has a fever the sibling must stay home (very good policy IMO b/c often you can be a carrier without symptoms for 24 hours). So dd thinks I'm her best friend now and we have played lots of Wii Go Vacation for the past couple of days which cuts into my free time.

Kids are back to school today but I'm catching up on what I got behind on. DD's jeans won't get finished until the weekend
I actually do have FB but I only use that with my family. That's the only way I can keep in touch with my sibs and cousins as we are all over the country. I am glad that your son is feeling better and can go to school. In many ways it was nice that you got to spend some time with your daugther (even though it cut in your free time). I look forward to seeing pictures of the jeans.

I am sorry to hear that you have been having gall bladder issues. I hope you are doing better now. A surprise trip! How fun! Please share pictures as you plan outfits for the trip.

So I don't have time to post comments on everything and it sort of feels like an all or nothing thing.

I also haven't been sewing much. I did make a rag quilt and tissue holders for Christmas that I could post (not Disney).
I am sorry to hear that work has been stressful for you. It sounds like it is something that you got stuck with. I hope things will settle down for you at work - we just went through a large almagmation (going from 7 health boards to 1) 4 years ago and we are still sorting out the mess! I hope you will have time to share pictures of your Christmas gifts.

Not only do I get an hour break but it is rather slow working at night so there is alot of downtime. The room where I work is fairly dark so I can only read so much without starting to get sleepy. So far I have made a hat and am working on a scarf now. I think after the scarf I will make an afghan for my cousin for her wedding, can't beat getting paid to make a wedding gift. I will try to post pics tomorrow of my hat and if i finish the scarf I will post that too.
I am glad that you are making head waves on the crochet front. How are you doing now that you are about a month into your new job? I hope you find the work interesting and engaging (even though it is slow at times).

Now, to decide what contest I want to do next and pick a pattern and fabric for it. then to wait for the contest to start. I think I'll do the RTW rip-off contest thing. I want to make this dress I think....

yes, I am ambitious to try to rip off a Valentino when I haven't even been sewing a year.
The dresses look fantastic! Your model's expression is just too cute! I think it is good to be ambitious in your sewing especially given how much you have accomplished so far.

The pictures with your boys are just precious. Thank you so much for sharing them. Unfortunately I don't have any suggestions for your embroidery machine problems.

Anyways... I was a bit nervous about making baby items for them - some people enjoy recieving them, and some don't. Before I learned to sew - I was of the latter opinon. Shame on me.

Because my time is so limited - I didn't want to sit here and spend oodles of time on making cute little baby items, if I was just going to send them over and not have them used... So, Marianne suggested that I just ask my SIL... And I did. Her response was "we would be so honored"... Awwww... My girls were teasing me that I was probably sewing stuff for the baby before she replied (I was - LOL)... So, anyways - I am just ELATED beyond belief that not only do I get to make little teeny tiny baby clothes - but they would be honored to have me do so. I just LOVE my SIL... She is so sweet!

Anyways... Sorry for the long story... This is the project I started and finished yesterday, and I had to show you all - not Disney related, but still cute! Little teeny-tiny "Poofy Pants" made from Carla C's pattern on YMCT... The pockets were my own addition. This pattern is fully reversible - and true to Carla's reputation - it was very easy and the pattern was very descriptive.





Thanks for letting me share... for those of you that saw these on FB - sorry, and for those of you that saw these on my PTR - sorry.

Those pants are cute! I am sure they will appreciate anything you make for them. I have been doing bibs and burps for baby gifts as per recommendations from people here. So far I have only received positive feedback on the bibs and burps.

I've posted here a few times but I mostly lurk. I'm having a problem with my embroidery machine and I'm hoping someone will have experience with this. I have the Brother SE400, and at first it worked great. Lately though, when I embroider or applique something, the first few stitches won't lock. Then the very beginning, maybe the first 10-20 stitches or so, will unravel. I've tried changing thread, changing the needle, switching out the bobbin, and adjusting tension and it still keeps doing it! It's very frustrating especially since I didn't have this problem at first. I have no idea what the cause could be! Anyone know anything about this?
Thanks!
I am sorry to hear that your machine is giving you problems. I don't have any suggestions for you other than cleaning the machine. It may be lint getting caught somewhere?

Oh my goodness! Congratulations on your pregnancy! I am sorry to hear that you are not feeling great, which is complicated by the school bus strike. I hope your pregnancy will progress smoothly.

How freaking awesome is that. The money has already been credited to my Visa, very much unexpected and needed surprise.
Wow! That is fantastic! Congrats! I guess you have an extra $102 to spend on supplies!

I am looking for sewing patterns for baby boys. I have looked thru the pattern books but really there is nothing for boy, of course, lots for girls. I have a wonderful red fleece with black mickey icon heads that I have had for several years. I have a little 7 month old grandson and I would like to make a fleece outfit for him, pants and a pullover. Does anyone have a pattern to suggest. Are there any online pattern companies. I searched Simplicity, McCalls, etc.

Thank you so much for any leads.
Welcome! I would suggest youcanmakethis.com as well. I know Jen did some fleece shirts with the Raglan pattern recently. The Easy Fit will be great for pants.

My MIL is ill, this bus strike, we need to move things around because we have to do a home remodel to fit all the kids in. It is just a lot. Also with me being a high risk pregnancy due to my age and a rather horrid previous history things are just hard. I am trying to do what I can but it is beginning to feel like the walls are closing in

We are super excited though and hope that we find out what the baby is at my next sonogram in a couple weeks.
I am so sorry to hear that your MIL is ill. I hope things will be smoother as the pregnancy progresses.

I have never heard of rot resistant thread, but did you try Joann's or a store like that? They may carry something like that.

Those look great! Did you purchase a pattern, find a free one or make your own? I'd like to make some for our trip. It will make it easy to tell which one is yours.
