    When we get near page 250 here, I'll start a new thread again.

    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:
    You will need to sign up for that site, but we are usually 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.

    Per Jeanne's suggestion, and to save everyone time:

    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:
    Password: Enchanted
    For a detailed explanation, on adding pictures and tags click here:

    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.

    Mrsklamc started a FABRIC SWAP! If you are looking for something or have some fabric you don't want, come check it out!

    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

    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!

    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.

    When you click reply, the name of the picture will look something like this, but in [ _] brackets
    To make it a thumbnail, put th_ before the name of the picture, such as this:
    This generally only works for pictures that were uploaded to photobucket.

    What a sport Hunter is! I can't even get Megan to do a proper toe point! The outfit is adorable, too.

    I found it at the quilt shop in the clearance section. Even on clearance I think it was $6-7 a yard so I only bought enough for the pants. I have some scraps left. Does Dallas have a ds or a need for a little pouch like what I made Jacob?

    These are Jacob's pjs:


    Ack! Look how little he was! :sad1:

    I sewed it on.

    That smocked dress is to die for! I love the angel wings and the design is beautiful. I am in awe!

    I cannot do an iron on to save my life but I could send you a t-shirt. Or you could send me the iron on and I can try to iron it on a t-shirt. PM if you need help at all, I'll be glad to do it.

    I don't mind if you copy for your kids at all. I would kind of mind if I saw it on e-bay or an embroidery design for sale like tomorrow, but what can I do? It's probably the most original idea I've ever had and I copied it from the signs that are everywhere so I can't be too protective. :lmao:

    What, more pictures? Sure!




    I used two different size balloons, 4 inch and 5 inch then got my scraps until I liked the combinations. I tried to match the ribbon as best I could from what I had and ironed it the balloons and stitched. I was originally going to do a vida with big balloons appliqued in the middle panel but when I found that extra shirt I just went with what I had. I think a vida or jumper with balloons would be super cute too.

    Cute cute cute! He can match Megan, I made her a western outfit with red bandanna fabric.

    LOL Okay, trying again!

    So I did my own "mini project" today and made shorts for Phineas to wear to the Hoop De Doo Review. My MIL says she has "cowboy shirts" for the boys to wear. So I took some of the $3.50 shorts from Walmart and the iron-on patches for jeans/pants, cut out some designs and letters, and made these (sorry I can't show you his face yet)




    I know it's not much compared to what you ladies do, but I did feel kinda proud of myself they turned out okay!


    Those with girls sizes 8-16 I found this today and thought it would be cute for a "bigger girl" Belle outfit!

    You did a great job. Did you cut the letters by hand or a Cricut or what? They look great.

    Just by hand!

    And I figure if they make it through the HDDR that's enough, lol. I'm sure once they are washed a few times the letters are gonna fall right off!

    I LoVE the shorts you made for Phineas!!! What about Ferb????? Cant wait to see their cute little faces! Have you had both boys since they were infants?

    Steph - I got a snappy thing today - I hope I got the right one - where do you get your snaps and what kind? They are kinda $$ at Joann's. Do you do one snap in the middle, or 2 snaps? Have you ever made one for Megan's american girl doll????

    Heather - LOVED the Tink!!! Great job on that - must have taken forever!!! I need to get some of that tomorrow! Lol!!:rotfl:

    Thanks! I'll probably make the same thing for Ferb but have to reduce the size to fit on his shorts (I thought I had some somewhere but I couldn't find them right away).

    We met Ferb when he was three weeks old and spent a month with him in the NICU. We knew about him when he was born but they had to do all the court stuff, etc, and get us cleared to see him. He came home from the hospital with us and we're the only family he knows.

    Phineas was with a relative (discharged from the hospital with her as well) and even though she is more "grandma age" we thought she was going to adopt him. We really supported that even though some had concerns, we just wanted the boys to be in touch, y'know? But she's battling cancer and the prognosis is poor, so Phineas moved in with us in February for the purpose of adoption. He calls his former caregiver "Nana" and her ex-husband/best friend Papa, and they still see him all the time. In fact he spent the night with them on Friday! So it's been like we've gotten even more family than the two boys.

    There are other siblings in various relationships with other people, we are in touch with the other full sibling (a teen) so far.

    I wish I could think of something similar but a touch different for Ferb on his shorts but I'm kinda clueless, unless I put a horse on them or something. Any ideas?

    (The boys look identical in looks, the only difference being the 11 mos between them. I'm sure when they are a bit older and the same size everyone is gonna think they are twins!)
