Coming out of Lurkdom

I love seeing your creations...so I am coming out of lurkdom to join the new thread. I had an older Brother that served me well for my little sewing tasks for 20+ years, but last fall I decided I wanted to learn to quilt.

For my birthday I took a quilting class and came home with a barely used Bernina Artista 730 with an embroidery unit that came with it...I never thought I would really use the embroidery unit, but I took the follow up class that came with my machine and o.m.word...I love my embroidery unit and I already have hoop envy!

So I am soaking up your knowledge and dreaming of another trip to Disney so I can make some awesome shirts for the fam!

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?
Welcome to the boards. I wish I could help or suggest a pattern but I don't know one but it looks like you've gotten a few idea's. I can't wait until you post pictures.

Teresajoy gets credit for the Buzz dress!
I love all the outfits and the jeans are really cute !

So without further ado here are some projects I just made. We are going on our first ever family WDW trip in 2 weeks and I have made two of each of the following dresses for my twin daughters. The dresses, as well as the entire trip, is a complete surprise for them, so it has been a challenge to work on the dresses while they're at school and hide the material before they get home.
For our first MK day, when we plan to meet Merida:
For our second MK day when we have breakfast reservations at CRT:
Welcome and what cute dresses ! I know you and your girls are going to have much fun.

Well, I haven't gotten any sewing done since I last posted. It was a very long week at my Dad's house, my brother and his wife had moved in already (2 months early and with their 2 cats) and shorted me a bed and made it awkward staying there. He was great but she can be kind of a pain. Her cats are not allowed to socialize with a dog.

We did have a lot of fun though and Plimouth Plantation was fun as was the rest of our week when we got out of the house. There were still sea lions at the beach which was weird since they are usually long gone by April vacation.

Hopefully I can sew tomorrow, groceries today, so I can finish the hat for the outfit finally and ship her stuff to her. I hit up Goodwill yesterday and got some good buys. I got an Emerson CD/record/cassette/radio for my DH that I think he will like and picked up some fabric for a couple bucks a yard. Found some really cute Disney holiday fabric, got about 2 1/2 yards for $4.




I also got some good news, I think, while I was at Joann's yesterday. Our offer was countered for a house in TX and it was reasonable so I guess I have a new house ??? We still have to sign the new offer, which I thought we would have last night, but I am a bit scared and excited about the move. Also about paying two mortgages since our house hasn't sold yet. The house is gorgeous, I think from the pictures, but I haven't seen it in person yet. Only my Dh walked through, I still haven't been to TX yet at all. Will they let me walk through when I get there ? I arrive on the 9th of this month to "house hunt" but hopefully I can see the new house. Maybe I will try to schedule the inspection while I am there, then I know I get to go through it with them. The house is empty, bank owned, no no worries about inconveniencing homeowners.

(First I apologize for not grabbing the quotes...but hey...I'm TIRED!)

Jessica...I, personally do NOT like that picture! I have seen those in person, and that pictures DOES NOT do them justice! I can say those are at least 100 times cuter in person!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I would go look for one of mine, but truthfully, I am still exhausted!

Now, for my big news. Miss Amelia Elizabeth made her appearance in the world yesterday morning at 9:51. She weighed in at 8 lbs 2 oz and was 20 1/4 inches long. She was 3 weeks (and a few days) early.

The delivery did not go as planned, my daughter had some serious problems and they decided to do an emergency c-section. It changed, literally, within less than an hour! She will have to remain on anti-seizure meds for a couple more months, but we did have a wonderful outcome.

I felt a little sorry for my son in law. I told you he was a bit squeamish...well, I didn't get there quick enough to go into surgery with her, so he had to go in. He held up like a trooper and did a great job! I got to speak to him a few minutes before he went back and he had started to calm down a bit and he went through it with flying colors!

I'm sure there is more...but I guess I am still a bit more tired than I thought I was....

LOL! about the picture! I do agree though, the picture just doesn't do anything for the outfits! Congrats on DGD! I'm a little happy you weren't there in time so her husband could go back there, although it would have been great if both of you could have gone. I didn't realize she was being prepped before you got there but that makes sense being so early and an emergency.

Thank you! My son wrote out the word Mom too so that makes it even more special. I think Sawyer's etch said Toy Story but it wasn't as cute. DS at 9 has the worst hand writing in the world and I copied what he wrote trying to make it Andy looking! The traffic done I have loved for years but it really was a last minute change. TJ was supposed to have the FP phone. Sewing at 2 am before we leave I tend to change my mind. Mine was also going to be different but I don't even remember what now and love how it turned out!!

It really is a gateway drug, this thread. I too have added an embroidery machine (2 actually...) in the just-under-a-year I have been hanging around. Not to mention a small fortune in embroidery designs, enough fabric to make a slipcover for a small continent and the unending desire to go back to WDW and so we are planning another trip. ENABLERS, all of you!

I just got my 1st order (speaking of addictions.) from Girl Charlee for knits to make shirts for my boys for the trip. Branching out from my beloved bowling shirts, gasp! (I have at least 1 set of those in the agenda though, worry you not!) I really want to do Be Our Guest for their birthday, but even if we can't get a dinner reservation I am hoping we can do lunch. Anyway, I also got the "Jackson" raglan pattern from Funktional threads to try out. It seems to have a lot of great upcycling potential too. The knits are in the washer so I doubt I will get going on them tonight and tomorrow we have plans all day... Darn real life getting in the way of my sewing!
Our drug of choice is awesome!

Of course I would have made Corey one. Should have done that for this trip. When do you leave? Although I don't think I can fit in anything else. Never mind, don't post publicly when you leave!

This thread makes me want to try my hand at sewing..I haven't done it since school in textiles..we did a hat. And it was quite a good looking hat, even if I say so myself.

I'm going to attempt a stuffed toy of a character from a video game I play at some point, but I have no clue where to start or the best way to go about making the pattern.

I have to eat my words. I said in 10 years of embroidery that i've never had hoop envy(and I never have in the past) but that must be because I didn't hang around here. Now I have hoop envy! I will be buying a machine with a bigger hoop but not a 5x7, something bigger for sure.

Congrats on the little one. My 20 hour labor turned into an emergency c-section also. Hope everyone is better.

I have been looking through and seeing all the awesome creations. I love them all - I especially love the Thing 1 and 2 onsies.

Question:


I have a new 770 (my husband thanks all of you ladies I am sure). I did my first applique last night and it came out pretty good. I now know how closely I need to trim the fabric - wasnt sure until after the satin stitch ran.

I had some issues with thread breaking but I think I just need to get a better handle on threading - that might have been user error.

Some of the tutorials I have watched - they use and iron on stabilizer on the fabric before it is placed on to be stiched down. Does anyone do that step and is it worth it? I am using cutaway stabilizer and it seemed to work well but was curious if adding the iron on to the fabric makes the fabric stay down better and maybe not pucker when washed.

Just trying to lesson the learning curve here as we leave in about 6 weeks and I need to get busy. If only my 3 year old darlings would cooperate at naptime.

Thanks and I will be back to post some pictures soon.

A good place to start is drawing out the character and breaking it down into pieces for a start-up "2-D" stuffy; also, if your starting out, felt or fleece is very forgiving to work with. I've gotten a lot of inspiration here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index...#axzz2SA58tklL There are awesome tutorials and a lot of the craftsters are gamers and would love to see your creation.

One of these days I'll have to post one of my dolls to show everyone my 3-D sewing.

I hear you on the nap thing. My 3-year-olds fight nap time every day but I will not give up!
I don't use the iron on but I do cutaway on the bottom and the solvy on top. I just think on t-shirts especially the stitches look nicer. Could be my imagination though. I order it online from thraedart or all stitch rather than buy it at Joann, it's much cheaper. The only time I used the iron on stuff is for the hand-applies I did before I got my embroidery machine.

Twirly skirt done!

Yay, I finally got the animal print twirly skirt finished. It has (I think) 14 animals embroidered on it. None of them are very big, but they took forever! Plus I always try to do doubles for future use when I'm doing things like this. I made it multi-directional so she can wear whichever animal she feels like in front. Plus I used button elastic. So it will fit her 20 inch waist now, but still be able to be worn up to about a 28 inch waist. Probably forever, she's on the scrawny side.
Now for the important part - pics!


Note the tiger striped waistband. I searched for a month for tiger striped cotton. I found tiger striped fleece, tiger striped silky fabric, tiger striped fur, tiger striped flannel, blue tiger stripes, green tiger stripes and even some tiger striped ribbon - but no tiger colored cotton tiger striped fabric! Until two days ago when the main part of the skirt was already put together.
And now for one photo I don't appreciate


Taken today - May the 2nd. Really!?! Yes, that white stuff is what you think it is.

I definitely do not consider myself anything other than "Ill-anoyed" living here!




I wish the logo on the back were higher, and I had some sort of total buttonhole failure so I messed up the top buttonhole, so I made a little felt patch and covered it up. It's for a 6 year old, so I think he won't care. I had my son try it on, he deemed it "too big, we should give it to Aydin." so that worked out perfectly!
I knew your brother was in CO but didn't realize you were from CO too!!
How exciting your nephew getsto throw out the first pitch, what a great memory that will be and the Cubs shirt turned out great!

So without further ado here are some projects I just made. We are going on our first ever family WDW trip in 2 weeks and I have made two of each of the following dresses for my twin daughters. The dresses, as well as the entire trip, is a complete surprise for them, so it has been a challenge to work on the dresses while they're at school and hide the material before they get home.

For our first MK day, when we plan to meet Merida:



For our second MK day when we have breakfast reservations at CRT:

Great job!!! Have a great trip!

The delivery did not go as planned, my daughter had some serious problems and they decided to do an emergency c-section. It changed, literally, within less than an hour! She will have to remain on anti-seizure meds for a couple more months, but we did have a wonderful outcome.

I felt a little sorry for my son in law. I told you he was a bit squeamish...well, I didn't get there quick enough to go into surgery with her, so he had to go in. He held up like a trooper and did a great job! I got to speak to him a few minutes before he went back and he had started to calm down a bit and he went through it with flying colors!

I'm sure there is more...but I guess I am still a bit more tired than I thought I was....

Congratulations!!!!

So it will fit her 20 inch waist now, but still be able to be worn up to about a 28 inch waist. Probably forever, she's on the scrawny side.
Now for the important part - pics!


Note the tiger striped waistband. I searched for a month for tiger striped cotton. I found tiger striped fleece, tiger striped silky fabric, tiger striped fur, tiger striped flannel, blue tiger stripes, green tiger stripes and even some tiger striped ribbon - but no tiger colored cotton tiger striped fabric! Until two days ago when the main part of the skirt was already put together.
And now for one photo I don't appreciate


Taken today - May the 2nd. Really!?! Yes, that white stuff is what you think it is.
Great job on the skirt! I feel your pain about the weather. It was 80 on Sunday here then yesterday we had 6 inches of snow. It snowed until about 4 this morning and now you would never know it. It's 50 and most of the snow is already melted.
