I was going to post something from 2007 too but I didn't want to dig for a photo that long. I think I'll see what all I can find. Not like I have any sewing to do or anything! Hope Tom doesn't read this post!



We'll go with JoJo, it is one of the first I saw that is kind of old but one of my favorites!

And one more for good measure, the last things I've made for us!



GRR! I can't find the picture I really want! I don't think I ever uploaded it to facebook yet! This one will have to do for the moment. I had a great large group picture of everyone and where you could see the kids jeans! I'll have to work on that later!

I am my daughter's back up coach since my wonderful son in law is a bit squeamish and isn't sure he can make it the whole way! (he really is wonderful...we lucked out in the son in law department!) Thought about making something cute for the baby..but I promised myself I would wait to find out if we have an Alexander or an Amelia before I make anything else!

aww. Good luck today! Hope it doesn't go very long.

Yep, those are the names. I didn't have an embroidery machine back then, but my sewing machine had letters on it.

She looks like one of the toddler princess dolls!!! WHAT A CUTIE!!!!!!!!

However the only thing my girl wants is an Aurora dress - but NOT the pink one - the blue one from the movie (which she loves). I have talks to Disney and this is not a possibility anywhere in the parks. So, I'm looking at sewing it. A few years ago I ended up making my eldest daughter a Rapunzel dress because they weren't available in parks yet, and I took an existing flower girl dress and sewed an over skirt and bodice that laced over. I am wondering where to start for Aurora - I have an old Cindy dress I can start with but it isn't quite the right shape. I am worried about sewing it all from scratch, but maybe it wouldn't be too hard? Ideas?
You need to check out Carla's blog. She has ideas for turning her wonderful patterns (which are gorgeous and simple to make) into princess dresses.
I'll find you the link....

Here is the one for Sleeping Beauty http://scientificseamstress.blogspot.com/2009/09/princess-pointers.html

She has Belle and Cinderella too

And, here is a tutorial by Nanci on how she made the Portrait Peasant into a Sleeping Beauty dress (it turned out fantastic!)

I finally got an embroidery machine and I figured I would make tops for my DDs and my niece. Easier said than done. I am a huge procrastinator and now it is nipping me in the butt.

Again, remember I leave in 6 days. I am making Bettyann tops for all 3 girls for their trip to BBB all I have done on those is the appliques. I managed to finish 2 Nemo Bettyanns for my DD's as my niece doesn't like Nemo. My girls are both on the spectrum and typically only like to wear pillow case type tops because they are loose. I have tried other patterns to no avail. we tried the Bettyann and for the first 20 min all was well and now they bother them. I had to open the back and add longer elastic to make it looser. I still have 9-12 tops to make in these last 6 days well 4-5 really as we leave at 6:50 Am. So those last 9-12 tops will be pillow case tops as they go together so easily and quickly and won't cause meltdowns in my children LOL. Also, if I have time I am wanting to make a Vanessa top for myself (the adult version of the Bettyann). Here is what I have done so far:
You are busy!!! I love the Nemo top!!! I need to get busy myself. Lydia has requested a Duffy dress and now she also wants a Lego outfit, because we are going to Legoland. We leave in 8 days!

It is because of this thread that I started sewing in 2010 before that I just lurked.

Also I love seeing everyone check in here.

For the record it took me 12 minutes to find that picture after I had already probably spent 20 looking for it. I did want the big group one though.

Please forgive my other post. It took me a while to figure out how to update my signature. My baby will be 12 on Friday. It is hard to believe. We also had another addition for my signature. We booked a trip for Nov/Dec. We are soooooo excited. It has been 4 years since we have been. We are hoping they will post free dining later in the year for that time. But we are happy with what we have for now.

Just need to plan goodies now. I see bowling shirts, a park bag, water bottle holders and anything else we might "NEED". Tshirts are a given. I hope the boys will still put up with their mom wanting customs. Last trip I made matching test track shirts. We rode late at night near close and they said since we were such big fans we could ride again. It is one of our best magic memories. "Remember when we got to ride test track over and over again." This will be our last family trip before my oldest heads to college. Wow I feel old. But not too old for Disney.

I knew you loved me.

Because, making shirts for everyone in my family (because I'm sure you would have made Corey one if he went) didn't prove that but you finding this picture did.

It's been a Long Time since i posted here, Checking in to see all the great projects. I am working on Rompers for my youngest. This June we are going to Take him on his first trip. He loves Mickey already.

If I have time I will embroider a shirt or two for the rest of us. But I don't have a lot of time or money. We have to get the air conditioner fixed in our minivan.

Love the towels. What a great idea! Love that shirt, I need to get that design sometime.





Great job, she's such a cutie in those dresses!



So cute! I need to start thinking of baby stuff to make. I have a friend due in August.
