Here's a few of my latest projects...
















erieckers I run my own sewing business from home... It's a lot of time - a lot of $$, very difficult to get a "fan base" and build a reputation. Not to mention my "wage" would make most of you laugh... even though my things do tend to sell for a higher price, the time and materials I put into them barely give me any profit at all. The only reason I continue to do it day after day, is because I truly love what I do and I love the people I get to meet because of it... I also love that people seem to really like what I make - so that keeps me plugging along.

I've said it to anyone who asks, and I will say it here- I could not do any of this if it wasn't for my DH, he has a good job and he is willing to let me do what I love because it makes me happy. If it wasn't for him, I'd still be at my regular job 40 hours/week. I am very lucky and DH gets all the credit.

wow i love these so much

The first one didn't work but I just got a second in a different location and it's feeling better. I will start PT once we return from our vacation if I don't get full range of motion back (I am no where near close to full range). I also have adhesive capsulitis which translated means "frozen shoulder" so I'm very limited in movement of my dominant arm. I did do one shirt on my embroidery machine the other day though, so I'm making slow progress. Hopefully this summer I'll get caught up on this thread and will go back and drool over everyone's fabulous work. I do miss you all but some days being on the computer too long hurts my arm.
That's a tough condition. Everyone is at least peripherally aware of rotator cuff issues, but frozen shoulder is less rare and can sound silly to someone who hasn't lived through it. I haven't but DH has. His Dr, in a last ditch effort, literally jammed a needle into his shoulder to get the steroid/cortisone/what have you shot to the right place. His sister had the problem too. I'm praying for you.

I started a new, quick project. I've set myself a deadline for this one, to get me in training for my Disney sewing. When I finish, I will post. Promise

Sorry I'm behind, but this time.... a legitimate excuse. We were in Disney!!!! We had the best time. I hope to start a TR soon with pics of the outfits I did manage to finish in time.

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.

Love these!!! So cute!!

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.


Love this shirt!! May need to get this pattern and give it a go.

My older son and I just did a quickie trip to Las Vegas to see "Love," the Beatles inspired Cirque show. Our tickets were so expensive (I bought them on Monday for a Wednesday trip) that I now have enough points for a trip to Los Angeles.



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!! I don't think I could do this, looks complicated.

I have been lurking your thread for awhile (which sounds so stalker-ish ;-)) and I am amazed and inspired by all the wonderful creations you ladies have made. While I don't know most of you I hope you'll let me hang around and learn the craft. My mil taught me to sew a few years ago and got me a sewing machine. While I'm not great, I have made a few things with her help, which I will post eventually. I'm gearing up for my 2014 wdw trip and I am starting to plan for my kids outfits, 2 dd 4&7 and 1 ds who's 1. It's our first family trip and I tend to go over the top. Eeek!

The reason to finally post is that I was excited today and you were the only ones who I thought would care. I've decided to make pillowcase dresses for our dis trip, but I thought I'd do a trial run with some July 4th ones. While shopping at Jo Ann's, I came across a clearance rack.....and I scored a gorgeous Tiana fabric for $2.50 yard! It made my day! I think I'm going to use some of it make a mixed piece tutu (well 2 of them of course, my oldest loves to match her sister). Since none of my friends really sew and dh could care less, I was busting at the seams to tell someone!! Thanks for letting me share and I look forward to getting to 'know' all of you :-)

Hope to see your outfits soon!!!

Must do her 4th of July outfit soon.

Jen - your top looks great! Very pretty and flattering!

I'm jealous because mine is a frumpy mess! I'm so disappointed by how it fits. I did the sleeveless version, and the arm holes just don't lay nicely at all. By measurements, I should have made the L. I compared the printed pattern to a shirt I love and decided the M would be better, but it's still huge and baggy in all the wrong places! It looks like a maternity shirt!

I see on the Sis Boom blog and FB page that even one of their designers takes hers in after construction, but I tried that and the lines just aren't right. That is an odd thing to do to a shirt that late in construction, in my opinion.

I don't know what I'm going to do with it at this point. I might add the sleeves to hide the wonkiness around the arm and cut the whole thing down to the next size. But honestly, I'm just bummed by the whole thing and almost ready to junk it.

Sorry to be so negative! Just needed to vent after working on this for two nights!

Regards,
C.
Sorry you are having trouble. This is what I'm afraid of when making shirts for myself.

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.

That bear is a great idea! He turned out nice!!

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:

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

Very cute outfits!!! And your dog is also very cute, although he looks like a lot of energy.

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!

Love these outfits!!! I bought the MU fabric and that dot fabric and had plans for a skirt for DD, but just didn't have the time. I guess now I have a reason to get it done, as brother is coming into town and we are all going to go see it. Love your shirt!!!

[IMG][/IMG]

Freezer paper stenciled Mickey hands for Epcot.
[IMG][/IMG]

Mickey Tie-Dye for our 1st day at Magic Kingdom. I made these in the winter and I couldn't find a short sleeved shirt for my daughter. So, I bought a boys shirt and cut it up and tied it off 80's style. That's why it's not laying right. Apparently my fringe skills have faded over the last 25 years.
[IMG][/IMG]

Animal Kingdom iron ons. Some are hand stitched some have no stitch at all.
[IMG][/IMG]

Hollywood Studios- At this point I just wanted them done. Nothing is stitched and everything fell apart when we got home. I'm so mad at myself because I loved these.
[IMG][/IMG]

Magic Kingdom round 2. The shirts are kind of hidden but you get the idea.
[IMG][/IMG]

The trip home Peace, heart and Mickey freezer paper stencil. We couldn't get all the eyeliner off from the pirates league.
[IMG][/IMG]

And here's what our Christmas tree looked like on Christmas morning. We think out Elf on a shelf did it???
[IMG][/IMG]

Love these matching outfits, so cute!! And that tree is adorable!!

Sorry to hear about your arm. I hope you are doing your pendulum exercises regularly, or whatever exercises they gave you to do. That will get your arm moving better, hopefully.


Yeah!!! All caught up!!!

Got a little done today, I am trying to get things wrapped up orders-wise before we leave next week for Colorado to visit my family for the 4th. I have a HUGE to-do list but of course we have to go see Monsters U this weekend too. I have finished 3 pairs of easy fit shorts and 1/3 matching polo shirts for my boys and my nephew to wear for the 4th of July. Will post when they are all done. They are turning out pretty cute though.
I did finish a Monster shirt for my hubby, but since my large-hoop machine is still broken, I did it with the 5x7 which looks a little silly and disproportionate. I suppose I could have gone old-school and did hand-applique but I am lazy and sort of fit this in unattended, just going in occasionally to change thread. My model insisted that he should try it to to make sure it would fit Daddy...


And this shirt I whipped up today for a friend's son. They are moving to South Dakota next week, and her twins (boy and girl) are 2 weeks younger than mine. They have been playmates since they were babies. Her son is CRAZY obsessed with Tow Mater. I am also making a simply sweet for her daughter.


I used the Fish Sticks Camp shirt pattern, it goes together so fast. Last time I made it I used the same pocket fabric as the yoke and it looked weird. I was going to leave it off this time but sort of liked the checkers. I think it turned out cute, was entirely made from my stash of fabrics and was done in 1 afternoon nap.

Your model is so cute with the Mike shirt. The shirt looks great! You must be super fast to be able to get it done in one nap! Great job!


In case anyone here is aware of the flood situation in Southern Alberta, I just want to let you know that my family is doing ok. Our house is away from the rivers so we are dry. My office building may be in bad shape as it is in the evacuation area. I know some people who have been evacuated but they have a warm and dry place to stay for the time being.

The first one didn't work but I just got a second in a different location and it's feeling better. I will start PT once we return from our vacation if I don't get full range of motion back (I am no where near close to full range). I also have adhesive capsulitis which translated means "frozen shoulder" so I'm very limited in movement of my dominant arm. I did do one shirt on my embroidery machine the other day though, so I'm making slow progress. Hopefully this summer I'll get caught up on this thread and will go back and drool over everyone's fabulous work. I do miss you all but some days being on the computer too long hurts my arm.
Hi Andrea, good to see you posting over here. So sorry to hear about your shoulder. Ouch! Hope your shoulder is better soon. It must be hard to have such limited motion, I hope you are not in too much pain.

Got a little done today, I am trying to get things wrapped up orders-wise before we leave next week for Colorado to visit my family for the 4th. I have a HUGE to-do list but of course we have to go see Monsters U this weekend too. I have finished 3 pairs of easy fit shorts and 1/3 matching polo shirts for my boys and my nephew to wear for the 4th of July. Will post when they are all done. They are turning out pretty cute though.
I did finish a Monster shirt for my hubby, but since my large-hoop machine is still broken, I did it with the 5x7 which looks a little silly and disproportionate. I suppose I could have gone old-school and did hand-applique but I am lazy and sort of fit this in unattended, just going in occasionally to change thread. My model insisted that he should try it to to make sure it would fit Daddy...


And this shirt I whipped up today for a friend's son. They are moving to South Dakota next week, and her twins (boy and girl) are 2 weeks younger than mine. They have been playmates since they were babies. Her son is CRAZY obsessed with Tow Mater. I am also making a simply sweet for her daughter.


I used the Fish Sticks Camp shirt pattern, it goes together so fast. Last time I made it I used the same pocket fabric as the yoke and it looked weird. I was going to leave it off this time but sort of liked the checkers. I think it turned out cute, was entirely made from my stash of fabrics and was done in 1 afternoon nap.
Congrats on getting the Toy Story bag!! Your son is so cute modeling your Mike W shirt. I really like the camp shirt you made, the pocket is great (IMO). Love the back too.

My oldest is doing her best to keep her loose tooth in until our trip next week. Any cute ideas for the tooth fairy at Disney?!?!
Disney Dollars, of course delivered from the tooth fairy's friend Tinkerbell. They sell the old school Disney Dollars at WDW. I'm pretty sure you can get them at the resorts (maybe the store or the front desk???) but they don't sell them at the Disney stores (in the malls and such) anymore. Maybe leave a trail of pixie dust in the room or a note from Tink. Maybe you could get a button "Celebrating my lost tooth". I hope the tooth can hold out until your trip.

Flora - glad to hear you are OK. My heart goes out to all of those in the flooded areas.

BabyRapunzel - welcome back from your trip. Looking forward to seeing some pictures of your visit to WDW.

I hadn't heard about the flood. Thanks for updating us. I am glad to hear you are okay. I will keep you and your area in my thoughts. Stay safe!

It's amazing how fast it went together. Most of the time I add at least one, often more, appliqués so it seems like forever! The camp shirt pattern is a little different from the bowling shirt and doesn't have a separate placket, plus the sleeves go on flat across the shoulder seam before sewing up the sides. I think that is much easier that way. I do think this one could have benefited from a lining like the bowling shirt calls for since the fabric is super thin. I also used kam snaps instead of buttons so that saved time too.
I bought some Spider-Man fabric for my boys I think I'm going to make a couple shirts using this pattern without appliqués and hoping I can get them done this week.
