Thank you

Thank you to everyone that responded to my post. Around 8 last night we heard that he was coming home and to give him a few days to settle in before we inundated the family with visitors. He unexpectedly died this morning. Thank you all anyway.

(I'll get caught up on all the gorgeous dresses posted recently over the weekend!)

Thanks for coming to meet me Carrie! It was so fun to do a Dismeet and her cuties are freaking adorable! My mom and I didn't get out of Joanns until close to 12! How was the zoo?

I use an embroidery machine for most of my appliques. However, from time to time I use my regular sewing machine to do applique "by hand." I just set it to slow and the widest zigzag width and go from there. There is a great tutorial from the first page of this thread about appliques.

I finally finished my nieces 1st birthday dress I still have the hat to make and to find out if it fits her but still done. I made a reversible jacket for it following a youtube video and it actually came out right.






I also made her a neon pink and blue tutu with a tulle hair bow to match and a tulle dress for pictures.

I am still playing with my new toy in a limited fashion because I have about 5 embroidery thread colors, but trying things out I am.

Such as this: A French Inspired Mug Rug > not specifically Disney, but a definate idea for, say, an EPCOT inspired something.







I don't know if you can see the truely horrible stitching on the right side of the Eiffel Tower, but I was overthinking my applique at that point. I got it right on the left side, though. The back makes up for it though, I love the vintage fabrics and the improvised French flag.

The wording was the very first thing I did on the new machine. I am quite pleased and am looking forward to more fun!!

And all the fabric came form my stash!!

PLus, celebrations are in order since due to my Dh's previous employer being sold we have now paid off our DVC and vehicle in full !! One had 3 years left and one had 5. YAY !!
Congrats on paying off your DVC and vehicle. Hope you are having fun at your Dad's.

The mug rug is a great idea and it looks nice. Bonus that it was from your stash.

I hope you have a great time at your Dad's house and that you get a lot of sewing done. Hooray for being able to pay of your DVC and your vehicle! How wonderful!

I use an embroidery machine for my appliques. I LOVE mine! I have a Brother Innovis 4000d. A lot of people do hand appliques on their machine. It is on my bucket list of things to learn how to do but I haven't gotten to it yet. I am hopeful that I will get some time this summer to work on learning. On the first page of this discussion you will find a link to a wonderful hand applique tutorial.

I did a hand applique this week and after overthinking one side, it turned out pretty well. It's not specifically Disney related, but in theory could be EPCOT related, so as soon as I've got pictures taken, I'll post it. It's another Mug Rug, BTW.
Did you use a tutorial for your t-shirt throw? I am going to try to make one out of some of my dd's old t-shirts. I am hoping to work on it this summer while she is at camp and then I can give it to her as a surprise when she gets home. I can't wait to see your first hand applique.

Beautiful dress and coat. She will be so adorable for her first birthday photos. I love the dress and the bloomers turned out terrific. I think it is good that you didn't add any wording. It would have been lost on that fabric. Did you follow a tutorial to make the coat? It is an adorable idea. Do you have a link? One of the best gifts that I used to get each year for my girls' birthday was a membership to the JC Penney photo club. That way I could get their pictures taken in their birthday outfits each year.

That turned out great. You must be having fun playing around with the applique and the embroidery. Love that you made the back into the French flag to go with the front.

Did you all know that there is a PDF pattern group on FB now? It is called PDF Pattern Sales and Promotions. It has lots of information about sales. I should warn you though that if you join, you are going to end up spending money on new patterns. I think I bought three last week. I'm trying to try out some of the new patterns. Today I did an adorable pair of little shortalls. I am very pleased with how they turned out. I can't share pictures just yet though because they are for one of the FB launch groups. I am hoping to try out another new pattern later this week but I'm not sure how much sewing time I will be able to fit in this week.

Your first project on the embroidery looks great. It is great that you can do it using materials in your stash!

I think this is another reason why I am glad that I don't do FB.

Didn't realize my brother had moved in already so now I am short a bed and will be spending the week taking turns sleeping on the couch with my kids. not fun ! The coat was from a Simplicity pattern 1921 and I followed this tutorial to make it reversible. It worked great.

Thank you for all the compliments on the outfit, I can't wait to see what SIL thinks and how it fits my niece.
