Posting on my phone while waiting on an oil change and tune up instead of sewing today. I guess this has to be done before our trip too, but I'm so close to having the twirly skirt done and getting started on Cinderella. The fluffy blue fabric is crying out to me.

Here I am! Lydia was so little! Love the skirt!

I've been working on embroidering or appliqueing names onto beach towels to give as gifts. DD12 is invited to about 10 bar or bat mitzvahs this spring. So I decided that I would make beach towels to give as gifts. I have one more to make and then I am done! Of course, my kids have seen the towels and now they want them for themselves. Making the gifts has been a huge money saver. I found huge, thick beach towels at Tuesday Morning for $9.99 each. I will try and get a picture of some of the finished towels.

I've also been working on a ruffle butt romper for my niece and I made two embroidered shirts for Disney for me.

Ok, here is a picture of some of the towels. We've already given some away.


Here is one of the shirts for me. The other one is already put away and I was too lazy to go upstairs and get it I had made one like this for my husband a couple of months ago and I really liked it.

Teresa - thanks for starting the new thread. This will be brief as I am using my phone on a moving bus.

I have a question to start out the new thread.
I used HeatherSue's bestest applique tutorial to do an applique on cotton.
Now I want to hand applique a basic Hidden Mickey type shape (made out of cotton quilt material) on a T-SHIRT.
What do I do differently, does anyone have a tutorial for that, and any tips or tricks for a first attempt at sewing on a t-shirt?

I would suggest using cutaway stabilizer and ball point needle for the applique. Otherwise it should be the same as working on cotton.

Great idea on the towels Diane. The shirt looks cute. I embroidered a shirt for myself the other say too. I will probably wear it to work tomorrow.

I love, love, love these towels! Hopefully by next spring my skills will be good enough that I can make something similar

Also, yay for part 30! Hopefully I will have more to contribute to this one

Great idea for the towels. And that shirt is very cute. How long does that design take to stitch out? Most appliques I choose take about 1-2 hours, but I can be perfectionistic.

MickeyforPresident......your dd is sooo cute. Love those outfits!!!

Long ago someone suggested cutting the side of a onesie before applique then serging. And I always wanted to but was afraid. And unskilled on my serger. Now I am feeling a lot more confident on the serger so I tried it for these thing 1/thing 2 onesies I made for a baby shower (one of my twin mom friends' cousin is also having twins, it's an epidemic!).

And it was great. This design is huge and would have been such a pain the old way working inside-out.

So thank you to whomever suggested that 2-3 threads ago.

Also, I got a new desk for my embroidery machine today from freecycle that is the perfect size for the new machine. I had everything shoved on one desk, now I can use the serger, sewing machine and the embroidery machine without moving a bunch of stuff around. Now my dream is to get a larger cutting/work table. And, a bigger house, but both of those seem unlikely. Also I tried to multitask again and just decided it is not for me and I am going to get rid of the PE770. Love it, great machine, just too much margin for error when I am working on mostly shirts and onesies.

Great idea for gifts for Boys and girls. Loved the pictures of your Disney shirt too.

The onesies came out really good and they look like they were put back together perfectly. Great score on the desk.
