No it's not just Disney sewing. We like anything!

Quilted Mickeys would have been way cute! I was thinking of BoG when I picked it, so I was Belle-inspired when I made it.

Happy Friday everyone!
Autocorrect strikes again - I thought I had posted "Tink" Guess the kindle had other ideas.

When I get back into the craft, I get back into it! I've got three projects in motion right now: finishing up a Christmas Present for DH; Knitted baby sweater for a co-worker & sewing weights for me. Plus I've got about 50 ideas waiting in the wings.

But I mustn't over do-it.

I'm sorting/purging my fabric. It seemed like a really good idea at the time.

Does anyone have a good Internet pattern for knit beanies? My friends daughter has leukemia and I want to send her some goodies.

Hi Everyone,

After a crazy marathon on the computer to finish 5 photo books, I've finally had some sewing time. I made a custom nursing cover today and finished the hem and collar on a Snow White costume. I actually made two of the SW last fall since I started with too large a pattern for dd. (Stupid commercial pattern!) I had to remake a smaller one for her, but a young cousin will be wearing the larger one at WDW later this month, so thankfully it was not wasted effort and fabric! I can't wait to hear how people react to her. She has lovely curly black hair and the costume looks so nice on her!

Next up, 3 beach robes for my kids from this pattern. We're going to an indoor water park next Friday. Nothing like a little pressure on myself. The kids picked some cute striped towels from Wally's. I'm kind of excited about this project!

First for the big sister:

What a nice gift! Very cute!

Hi Andrea!

So glad to see you posting regularly again! My shop is going VERY slowly, but thank you for asking! So far only a couple family members have made purchases. The shop itself is a bit neglected and I need to get a bunch of new items listed. I've got some embroidered items I made as gifts to list. With Christmas and homeschooling, I just haven't had enough time to get much done. Hopefully, I can get some work done on that next week, too!

Michigan has a really nice website that walks you through all the steps of opening a small business. Maybe Virginia does too? I applied for a state license because then I can buy wholesale from places like Monag. You should be able to google the tax question, I would think.

Congratulations! And I love the little pants! I've found creative sewing for boys is hard. But if anyone can do it, you can! Can't wait to see the rest of what you make for the little guy!

Anyway, I am on the mend. Just made a beautiful baby quilt for a fellow DIS friend, and finished curtains for our basement, pre-surgery. Not Disney related but still an accomplishment.

Happy to be back on the DIS and checking out all the beautiful things! Keep up the good work! I love seeing all the creativity.
Glad to hear you're on the mend! I hope you'll be back up to full speed very soon!

I do FB, including the disbou page, but I actually prefer it here. Honestly, I'm kind of intimidated by the group on FB. They are always very kind, but so many of them know each other so well, I feel a bit like an outsider. (I don't mean that to sound at all snarky or rude, so I hope it doesn't come across that way!)

All those pics are great! I drool over your blog and website - it just looks so polished! How wonderful to have a photographer friend! That last shot is wonderful! My kids are not allowed to touch their ears either. They're decorations on a shelf in my bedroom.

Love all the dresses and the Lightning Heart.
Glad to hear you're on the mend! Hope you'll feel up to sewing soon!

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'm sorry you're having such a stressful time! Prayers that things will ease up on you soon!

key fobs/pocket purses - longwaitforisabella.com (lanyard and key fob pattern). The Lanyards and Goofy have not yet been finished, and there's also another Tigger pocket purse in the works for DS. I am making 2 for DD and DS each, Red Minnie-inspired for me, Goofy for DH.


I also bought a two-zip hipster pattern on Etsy from Erin Erickson . I have material cut out for a vintage-inspired Mickey/Minnie hipster for our trip using the same pattern. I love how this turned out! Thank you to D~ for the inspiration to try out a hipster, your bags are awesome!!!


Thanks for viewing!
I love everything, but that Jesse outfit is TDF! So clever!

I ended up buying blue Cinderella fabric, she liked my blue one best anyways, and am going to use plain light blue for the skirt with 3 or 3 over-layers of tulle to match Cindy's dress and a bit of pink tulle peeking out from under.



Someday I'll buy a pattern I have to print out. I don't have a working printer to print it out on plus I already owned the pattern I am using.

I really like the ruffled top and the pocket purses. Very handy to have one of those.
That will be really pretty!

What does everyone think of the new Cindy and other Princesses? I love the in-park changes, but I'm not so sure on the printed versions yet.

Quote:







DS's bottle carrier is made Star Wars fabric from Joann. He LOVES this fabric, more importantly note the AT-AT detail. DS is obsessed with anything Star Wars lately, particularly AT-ATs, so he was really geeked about this and offered consultation in the design and what to have shown (Death Star on the inside, AT-AT on the outside, Wing Fighter on the bottom). He has since sat there and just studied the bottle carrier.

Everything is nice, but I really like the patchwork jean skirt. I'm sorry it didn't turn out as you'd hope. I hate when that happens! I love that you ds helped design his water bottle holder!

Off to print the robe patterns and get started! Have a great weekend, everyone!

Regards,
C.

Have a great day everyone.
I hope the conference was good. It sounds like you and your co-worker had a good time at Downtown Disney one evening. Maybe you co-worker will be planning a trip to the parks AND Downtown Disney soon!

Welcome! We share pictures of sewing (and other crafts) and certainly they are not all Disney related. You may want to read the first post as it provides some background about this lovely, talented, friendly group of people.

I don't have any suggestions for you, but I just want to say I am sorry to hear that your friend is going through a difficult time. You are a good friend by sending her something special. I hope the family is getting the support needed in this time of need.

Those photobooks can take a lot of time but I am sure they are well worth the effort. I hope your cousin will get lots of attention in the Snow White dress that you made. I can't wait to see pictures of the beach robes. I am sure your kids are looking forward to going to the water park. It sounds like a great idea to escape the winter!

So far, just cutting out the pattern, I HATE it ! UGH !! It is a PIA and the writing on the pattern is wrong. Numbers look right but descriptions are wrong on 2 of them. It describes 3 skirt side front and no side backs or front of skirt. Some of the pattern was so faded out that you couldn't see the lines to follow. It has like 150 inches on the waist that you have to gather twice, once for skirt and once for the lining. I hope that it turns out worth the hassle.

I also had a bunch of leftover Cindy fabric and decided to make an apron for her too. Her grandpa says she doesn't have a doll that he knows of but spends a lot of time on her play kitchen. So I made a full an apron for her and one that starts at the waist for Mom so they match.

I love that top. It is so cute! And the Minnie outfit turned out great too. Sorry that it was painful to put together but it looks really good from this direction.

I too am dreaming about Florida and some warm weather. We had two days earlier this week that were 70 degrees (one actually broke a record) but the last two days have been cold and yucky.

I hope it works ! I will put the pattern together and then cut out the fabric.

I think I might have enough fabric to make a doll dress too. I wonder if her grandpa knows what size doll is her favorite one ?
As I said further up in my post, I think this is a good plan to keep the prettiness of the fabric. I hope that it works out ok. You could do a mock up of the bodice with some muslin to see if it works alright before you cut into the more expensive Cinderella fabric.

My guess is that she would probably have a doll that would fit an 18 inch sized doll dress. Most little girls seem to have a doll that size these days.

Glad that you found us. We all love Disney and we all love sewing. However, this group is not limited to just Disney sewing. You will find a lot of our outfits are Disney themed though.

It sounds like you have been a busy lady. Homeschooling, sewing and taking care of your family must keep you very busy! Sorry that you have to make two Snow White outfits but at least your cousin will get to use the larger one. Maybe they can save it for you when she outgrows it and then your dd can use it.

The pool robe pattern is very cute. I did pool robes for a Big Give a couple of months ago. I used a free pattern that I got off the internet and I was happy with how they turned out. Planetapplique has a free set of "Little Lifeguard" appliques. Here is a link to them:http://www.planetapplique.com/all-ap...prod_1174.html
They look really cute on the pool robes. For some reason she doesn't have them listed on her freebies page.

The pink polka dot dress came from the girls department, not the toddlers. I am sure the smallest would be too big for your little girl right now but it might be worth picking one up for her to grow into. They were only $5.97. I ordered mine on-line to avoid going into Walmart. Going into that store always ends up costing me a fortune! I avoid going to Costco for the same reason.

Sorry that the pattern is a PITA. Can you baste the lining and skirt together at the top before gathering so that you only have to gather it once? Also, can you taper the pieces a bit at the top so that once you gather both layers they don't add in a huge amount of bulkiness at the waist of the dress?

An apron should be super cute! If she loves her play kitchen, I'm sure she will love the apron and with little ones, they just adore anything that matches with mom.

I ordered mine on-line to avoid going into Walmart. Going into that store always ends up costing me a fortune! I avoid going to Costco for the same reason.
I d/l that robe pattern when you made those robes and I considered using it, but I really like the long sleeves and hood on the MADE pattern. Thanks for the applique link! I'll check it out

I figured that dress was Girls sizes since your niece is in school. I will probably try to grab one, though, next time I'm over there. It is a dangerous store for spending money! I had actually picked some striped fabric to line the hoods of all the robes in their fabric dept, but after 10 minutes and two calls over the PA, no one came to cut it. I took that as a sign and will hit Joann's for something tomorrow.

Question - Regarding Walmart fabric, do they take competitor coupons? Their fabric prices are just too high, imo.

The conference was in Orlando but unfortunately there was no time to visit the parks. We did have dinner and did some shopping in Downtown Disney one evening. My co-worker had never been to Downtown and was so amazed at everything, she was like a kid in a candy store.
Have a great day everyone.
Ohhh, to be so close to the parks and NOT be able to enter one... But nice you got to visit DTD!

Is it just Disney sewing? Or anything?
Welcome to the thread! I see others have let you know it is not exclusive Disney. You'll find a lot of inspiration and encouragement as well as great suggestions when you're "stuck" or have a problem. Hope to see something you've made in the near future.

Does anyone have a good Internet pattern for knit beanies? My friends daughter has leukemia and I want to send her some goodies.
I do not have a pattern, but hopefully someone will chime in soon to point you in the right direction. It's a very nice thought to give something so practical for your friend's daughter.

That was so much fun! I can't believe it's been that long ago already!

But I mustn't over do-it.
I can't wait to see everything Ruth!!!

So, it's kind of cool. However - when it's so cold like that - you just go out there and it's so cold that you can't even be cold. LOL

Had to come and share the chenille baby quilt I made for my new nephew - it turned out really cool and I am very proud of it! It is the first quilt I have ever made... Sorry for those of you who have already seen it on my PTR... There are more pictures posted there, I just didn't want to bombard you all here.

It has like 150 inches on the waist that you have to gather twice, once for skirt and once for the lining. I hope that it turns out worth the hassle.

I also had a bunch of leftover Cindy fabric and decided to make an apron for her too. Her grandpa says she doesn't have a doll that he knows of but spends a lot of time on her play kitchen. So I made a full an apron for her and one that starts at the waist for Mom so they match.
I am sorry to hear that the pattern is giving you troubles. I am sure the end result will look very pretty and the efforts are well worth it. I think it is a great idea to make matching aprons for mom and daugther. I am sure they will enjoy their time together in the kitchen with those special aprons (play or real).

I too am dreaming about Florida and some warm weather. We had two days earlier this week that were 70 degrees (one actually broke a record) but the last two days have been cold and yucky.

The pink polka dot dress came from the girls department, not the toddlers. I am sure the smallest would be too big for your little girl right now but it might be worth picking one up for her to grow into. They were only $5.97. I ordered mine on-line to avoid going into Walmart. Going into that store always ends up costing me a fortune! I avoid going to Costco for the same reason.
Wow, I cannot imagine 70 degrees in January! I was so happy earlier in the week when it warmed up to around 30 degrees here.

I think the Walmart and Costco that you guys have must be more interesting than the ones here. We only go into those stores for very specific things and leave. Costco is always like a zoo here so we try to avoid it as much as possible. Unfortunately they have the best prices on a few staples so we put up with it!

I hope you can get what you need at Joann's. We don't have a fabric department in the Walmarts near us (they never put them back in after they took them out a couple of years ago). I just see it as a sign that I should use up my stash! I have never heard of Walmart taking competitors' coupons, though I guess it never hurts to ask!

The quilt turned out great! It looks nice and warm! Thank you for sharing the pictures.

I totally get what you mean by it's so cold that you can't even be cold. My family lived in Winnipeg when I was in high school (which is about 7 hours drive northwest of Minneapolis), so I got used to going outside on miserably cold days. One of the few good things I would say about Winnipeg is that the original Winnie the Pooh was from there. I am so thankful that we live in Calgary now. The chinooks really help to break up winter.

www.ravelry.com has a number of free patterns for just about every type of knit beanie you could think of.
