RuthIE - Hi! Some of our group have etsy stores listed on their signatures, so you may with to check with them directly. I am in no way secure enough in my sewing to make adult clothing, or I'd volunteer. Hopefully someone will be able to help.

Speaking of customs: working at the science center I see a lot of kids and I'm almost positive I've seen some Disney customs. Like, just a few minutes ago, two darling little girls were wearing what were absolutely Mickey dots skirts. I'm never in a position to ask, but I do admire. So if there are any B'ham area sewers with custom work

I have this vision in my head for exactly what I want I WISH at times I had not been such a Daddy's girl/tomboy and took my Aunt & Nana up on the offer to learn all this...cross your fingers for me and if ANYONE would like to maybe come to my aid pleas PM I appreciate you ladies...

These were for our Universal day - Sponge Bob and Patrick theme. The yellow shirt is for Curtis and I wore the pink one.

Casey wore the pink tank and her dad wore the yellow shirt


The kids wore these our first day at Islands of Adventure when we went to Harry Potter "land". When I was packing I could not find my son's shirt anywhere. Everyone looked but we could not find it. I ended up making another one the night before we left. Of course, I found it yesterday on the front porch where I took it to take some pictures.


I made these for my daughter as "extras". My son wore his Scooby Doo shirt and Casey wore her Mystery Machine shirt after they got soaked in Curious George's playland. We never found Scooby and Shaggy this day I think because we were in TS Andrea and they were not out.


These are my first "felt" designs and I am planning on taking off the appliques and reusing the shirts since we don't have much of a use for them after our trip.

I made a few Dr. Suess themed items but I have to get some pictures of them.

Curtis wore this shirt to his end of year movie day since he was planning to watch Monsters Inc. I had just purchased this design so I quickly made this shirt for him. One item done for our Oct trip.


I made these outfits for my nieces and nephews. There are two sets of cousins one boy and one girl, live near each other so I wanted to send something for everyone. I just appliqued some beach dresses from Walmart and both of the girls really love them.

These shirts were for the boys. My sister loved the shrimp boat since she calls her son Bubba. She calls it his Bubba Gump shirt but I just thought the design was cute.


I also made this for my daughter but I don't think she is a fan. She doesn't like that you can't tell what the letters are on the pocket. Of course there is no explaining the monogram concept to her.
Everything looks great!

My embroidery machine woes continue to depress me, but I took my kids to the splash park this morning for a few hours and they went down for a LONG nap afterward (I could have easily slept too!) so I finished my Dana Scientific Seamstress sew-along top today. It's pretty much outside my comfort zone fabric/color/style wise, but I am pretty happy with it. I am a t-shirts and not much else sort of person. Sadly I had a LOT of trouble with this, not any of which was the pattern, it was actually quite easy. I did the ruffle over like 6 times, first two times I sewed it to the wrong side... Then I tried to do the ruffle on the serger has I have done with most ruffling recently and it didn't work (though a sample fabric would work so I think it was the tiny ruffle or something.) so I had to cut off the ruffle so many times. The rest was OK, but ran out of bobbin thread about 1.5 inches from the end, the last 25 stitches of the whole thing. But I got through it. And it is done.

Sorry you had trouble with your top, it looks great.

I know, I know.

When junior son graduated from power school in South Carolina he wanted to go to Busch Gardens in Tampa. We flew to SC, rented a car and drove to FL. We drove by lots of Disney signs, I could see the top of the Tower of Terror, but he didn't want to go to Disney, just Busch Gardens.

Placemats on my next post. I really do like them.



According to the rules on page one I see it is mandatory to share all sewing whether or not Disney related.

2.You MUST share pictures of everything (and unfortunately, we do mean EVERYTHING)!

I offer this post in order to comply with all regulations:

Has any one made the uklass dollhouse? I gave it a go yesterday. I went back and forth between making it as directed and modifying it. I went as far as I needed to go to get the general idea of how to make one and quickly discovered it would be too small for my broccoli family, so am done for now.

Just wondering if anyone else has made one. I can see how they’d be fun to make and personalize if you had someone (other than broccoli) to make one for.

The house . . .



Too small for Mr. Broccoli, let alone the rest of the bunch . . .



Open house . . .



You get the idea . . .



I’ll eventually make another one.

When I do the preview the pictures are HUGE, but I think I've found out in the past that they shrink. If not, sorry!!!
Very cute house. I made one similar to that for my girls many many years ago.

Those quilts are beautiful and Izzy and her dress are adorable.


I was planning to post pictures of the projects I've worked on this week but photobucket is being uncooperative, so I will have to post them later.

Photobucket and I seem to be getting along now so here are the projects I've worked on this week.

The first is a Hello Kitty sundress, hat and there are pink shorts under the dress.


My grandson's favorite toys are balls so the fabric for this shirt was perfect.


A friend asked me to make a bear for her from a suit that belonged to her father-in-law who died last year.

My turn for machine woes. My embroidery machine was not tracking properly yesterday and I needed to get Izzy's 4th outfit done. I took the machine in today and of course it worked for the service man. Anyway we scolded me for using spray glue and canned air. I didn't know those were no-no's. He's going to service it and check the tracking with the computer. Sigh. Didn't need more money out of my pocket this month.

I am SO not going to be able to keep up. Way too busy with this guy:

This is Loki. He was rescued from a shelter in TX along with his 9 brothers and sisters and mom when they were 1 day old, same day they were scheduled to be put down. A wonderful rescue found a brave foster family who raised 10 puppies until they were old enough to travel up north and be adopted (mom now lives happily with the foster family) and I was lucky enough to get this guy for myself. Hes a lab mix..no idea what the mix is of, but he is super smart, and super sweet and I am head over heels for him!

On the sewing front...my mother surprised me with a Brother Pe770..so I have been making tee shirts left and right And I made this dress:

close up of applique:


Off to take Loki out to pee and collapse into bed...hopefully will find time to read up on what everyone has been doing!

I hope it's an easy and inexpensive fix. I also use spray glue and was told it isn't a good idea because it doesn't hold consistently but I've not had issues... It is one of the only things the local places HASN'T blamed me for causing the issues. They've criticized my stabilizer, thread, bobbins and bobbin thread, needles and my methods. (Oh and btw still broken. And all
Those suspicious supplies working fine on my other machine...)

I love your dog and I'm so happy you got an embroidery machine. (And that I kept mine as a backup!) your dress is very cute.

I only use canned air on one of me machines to low dustier after using a brush. My brother machines hate spray adhesive but I can use it on my janome.

Yeah, I have a Janome 350e and never got scolded for the canned air before. Now I have a mini-air compressor that really blasts but probably won't use it on the embroidery machine any longer. I don't like being told off.

Countdown to Monsters U

Our little family is SO excited for Monsters University, I can't stand it. We are going on Sunday since that is hubby's day off, and I seriously wish I could fast-forward through the week to get there. (Especially since my darling children have decided to reject napping and the days are SOOOOOOOO long without that break.)

Here are the outfits I have been working on this week for my boys for the movie:


They are both the same (to prevent fights.) so the one on the left is the front, the right is the back. I do have enough of the Monsters fabric to make them bowling shirts later on if I find time.
I sorta love this guy "taped" to the back of the shirt:


AND...


(One of my sons took this for me, not too bad.)

I made myself another Dana top. I saw this fabric a few weeks ago and it screamed Monsters Inc to me, so I decided I needed a Monsters Inc shirt too. My friend whom I made the bowling shirt for our Disney trip is coming with us to the movie, so I am sure we will be quite the sight!

(to refresh, this is the shirt I made her)


Thinking my husband NEEDS a Monster shirt, maybe I will do the Mike W face on a Lime Green shirt this week sometime so he doesn't feel left out!
