    HOLD IT RIGHT THERE!
    Read this post for Valuable Information
    because if you don't and ask questions that are answered here, we reserve the right to tease you about it, and you don't want that, do you??
    Welcome to the Disboutique thread!

    We are a bunch of ladies (and one guy) that share a love of Disney, boutique clothes and sewing! We offer support to one another about sewing, Disney and life in general! We consider each other friends here, and we always love new friends! Even if you don't sew, please join in, you might just find a new passion! We share all kinds of things, they don't have to be Disney! And, you don't have to have sewn the items you post.

    Be warned, this thread is addictive, and we don't stay on topic!


    We are NOT a selling group, but lots of the posters on here sell, (lots of them don't too!) We are NOT allowed to talk about it on the thread, so please don't try! Check out signatures for Ebay usernames, or just PM the sewer if they post something that you like. We do not have an official list or a Disboutiquers website where we sell. We are not a selling group, we are friends. :thumbsup2

    This is one of my favorite things about our group!!! This truly is what we are all about! We make items for Disers taking Wish trips (for children with life threatening medical conditions) to Disney Parks or Disney Cruises. You don't have to know how to sew to help out! We would love it if you joined us! (Seriously, please join us and help out!) Please follow the link in my siggy or here:
    http://www.disbiggive.com
    You will need to sign up for that site, but we are very quick to approve people. Thank you!


    "The bookmarks"
    has TONS AND TONS of FREE patterns and sewing hints and tips. Most all of the hints and links posted here will go into the bookmarks as well tons of things I've found on the internet. I update if frequently, so check back often. There is a search function, which is great if you are looking for something specific.

    Everything you could ever want to know to make beautiful appliques!



    Group Photobucket Account
    We have a Photobucket group with pictures of our creations. Please do not repost this link and the password on other message boards. A link to our thread would be preferable:
    http://photobucket.com/disboutique
    Password: Enchanted
    For a detailed explanation, on adding pictures and tags click here:
    http://disboutique.blogspot.com/2008/05/adding-pictures-to-group-photobucket.html


    Each person adds their own pictures to this account. Please only post your own pictures of your own children. Everyone is free to post pictures of boutique, custom outfits or anything you post in the thread.
    Please add tags to your picture so that they are easier to find. Right now, we are adding a description, such as Princess, Aurora, and what pattern it is ie: Portrait Peasant Top, Easy Fit Pants.... You can add up to 20 tags per picture, so go ahead and use a few if it is appropriate.

    Here's a video tutorial for posting pictures AND TAGS!!! to the Photobucket account, I would suggest watching it in "Full Size" to really see what I'm doing.

    FAQ and "Rules"We have made up a few "rules" along the way ;)
    1.Be nice, if someone isn't nice, ignore them "Where there is no wood the fire goes out."
    If you feel that you MUST respond, do it in PM, do NOT bring it to the boards.

    2.You MUST share pictures of everything (and unfortunately, we do mean EVERYTHING!
    3.NO APOLOGIZING for how your kids look. That includes wet hair, messy hair, dirty faces, wrinkled clothes etc....We have come to the conclusion that ALL of our children are beautiful, no matter what!
    4.No apologizing for messy houses. We like a good game of eye spy around here!
    5. No apologizing for being "off topic". We like to have fun here, and are often off topic.
    6. If you have a question, ask us, we'll do our best to help! Really, you can post questions here, we like that!
    7. If you ask a question and no one answers, don't be upset. Either, no one knows the answer, or your post got missed. Go ahead and ask again!
    8. The banana gets lonely dancing by himself, so there is a three banana minimum. We don't want lonely bananas on the DIS!
    :banana: :banana: :banana:
    (and, just so you know, I do a mean dancing banana impersonation!)
    9. Lots of the posters on here sell, but we are NOT allowed to talk about it on the thread. Check out signatures for Ebay and Etsy usernames, or just PM someone if you see something you like. :thumbsup2

    Frankenpattern- To take several different patterns and put them together into one outfit


    HOW TO POST PICTURES

    1. Upload the pic of your choice to photobucket
    2. Resize the pic in photobucket click on the thumbnail of the picture, it will open up, then click (above the pic)> resize > 15" screen- it will make you verify that you would like to resize the pic (I like the 800X600 size pictures instead of the message board setting, it shows lots more detail)
    3. After the pic has resized, go to your album, below the pic that you would like to post, there are 4 different codes (email & IM, direct link, html code & IMG code) Click in the box that has the has the IMG code. It will look something like this http: xxxxxxxxxxxxx
    When you click on that box, it will light up in yellow, and say "Copied"
    4. In the thread on the Dis (in another open window), click on "post reply". When you are ready to post the pic, right click - a box will open, click on paste. This will paste the link that you copied from your photobucket account.
    5. Post reply. The pic should show up!


    [SIZE="7"][B][COLOR="Red"][U]MULTI QUOTE TUTORIAL[/U][/COLOR][/B][/SIZE]
    At the bottom of each post, you will see a little blue box with a + sign it it. If you want to multi-quote that post, you click the + box and then move onto the next post you want to multi-quote and click the + box. After you've clicked all the posts you want to multi-quote, click on "reply" or "quote". All of the items you want to respond to should be in the reply box. Just put your reply to each post after the [/quote] for each post.

    [SIZE="7"][COLOR="DarkOrchid"][B][U]How to make thumbnail pictures in your reply[/U]:[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE]
    When you click reply, the name of the picture will look something like this, but in [ _] brackets
    {IMG}http://1234.photobucket.com/albums/1234/nameofthepicture.jpg{/IMG}
    To make it a thumbnail, put th_ before the name of the picture, such as this:
    {IMG}http://1234.photobucket.com/albums/1234/th_nameofthepicture.jpg{/IMG}
    This generally only works for pictures that were uploaded to photobucket.

    Who is George? :confused3

    I have 36 pictures to post of the castle bed. Should I take up 2 posts or should I just link to my photobucket or something? I don't want people to hate me. It took that many pictures to show it off good. :snooty:

    *EDIT*
    I was going to try to comment on each picture, but that is alot of pictures! Sorry if you didn't want to see em!
    In one of those pictures you see her legs.. she's got terrible eczema and allergies. That is part of the reason I wanted this bed for her. SHe can't play outside a whole lot because she breaks out really badly. Slide is in the works to put on the side of the bed.
    Oh.. and that Sleepy Beauty dress was made for DW, but I never got around to posting it. I know it looks terrible with that shirt, but I picked up most of my winter clothes. It got kinda cool today and yesterday. SHe said she has to wear this dress everyday now because she is a princess.
    Still have a couple more touch ups after that dark purple trim went on, and a few more things I want to do to the inside. You get the idea now though. :)
    Oh, and sorry for the bad pictures of the sides of the bed. I forgot to take pictures of them outside. This takes up most of her room!
    I just noticed that power strip. Where the heck do I put that?? I don't want her to stick things in it. I used to have it behind her changing table. Hrm.. guess I need to get creative. I'm up for any ideas on room decor too. I'm just not painting the walls. That will come when we buy a house.
    She demanded I take a picture of the scary dragon that lives in the turrets of her castle too. <3!
