    Yes, since you are going to use these in the winter, long sleeves and hood is a great idea. It will keep your kids from getting chilled when they leave the water park area. I don't know if Walmart honor competitor's coupons. We don't have a real fabric department at our Walmart. Just those two yard pieces that are already cut.:rolleyes2

    I love your baby quilt. It looks so soft and cozy! What an awesome gift!

    Our Walmart and Costco are also terrible. They are overcrowded and overused. We only have one of each in our entire county and they are very over-utilized. But with the cost of land here, there is no way they are going to build another one of either of them. I try and avoid Walmart though because it is so tempting to throw a few things into your cart because you think, "Well, it is only an extra $2", or $3 or $5. And next thing you know, you've spent $100! And Costco is even worse. An impulse purchase there is an extra $20! I try really hard to stick to my list when I go into either of those stores but it is hard!!!

    I do go and vote there from time to time but not very often. I actually find the site a bit confusing and a little hard to use. I think they need to overhaul it to make it a little more user friendly.


    Andrea- I didn't get your quote. But the Two Zip Hipster pattern is definitely worth the $8. The bags turn out great and really do look a lot like the Vera Bradley bags. You can make yourself a bag for a fraction of the cost of a Vera bag. I made two of them last year for the silent auction at our synagogue and they sold very well.

    Anyone see that Mickey is now on Marc Jacobs clothing. A sequined Mickey sweatshirt runs about $995.00.

    The cake that you posted a while back was just fantastic. I hope you can get the business stuff sorted out. I am sure if you keep good records, it won't be a problem even if you got audited.

    Ah, now I understand. I try to limit my impulse buys by trying to get out of the stores as quickly as possible. I can see how those little things in the cart add up though.

    Thanks for sharing. I think for that price I will buy an embroidery machine and applique lots of sweatshirts instead!

    Here are a couple of things that I finished up on Friday. The weekend was busy so I am just getting around to taking pictures now.

    I have almost used up that ruffle fabric. I am happy with how the outfits turned out but I doubt I will buy that fabric again. Also, I swear that I had hooped that sandcastle dress straight but it looks so crooked in the pictures! I don't know what happened.

    Also, there is a special e-pattern sale this week. You can get 18 patterns for $25. I like most of the patterns so it is probably worth it for me to purchase the package but other patterns I will probably not use. Anyhow here is a link:

    I need ideas. My daughter will be going on a make a wish trip to Disney world. We have seven young kids so have to come up with outfits for all of them, but the one who has me stumped is the wish child Ava. She's almost nine, tall and skinny, and very much into fashion. She did find a precious Snow White Tween costume that I will get her. But, I need serious help with other outfit ideas. Does anyone know where I can find cool, funky tween outfits?

    I think putting the lining together with the skirt with make that seam to bulky and too much against her skin. I will follow the pattern and keep it separate. It just might take a me 2 or 3 days of sewing instead of one day.

    How about something like this ? of course using younger clothes and no heels....

    Both outfits look great. I have to say I like the cat outfit more though! I will have to check out the website you posted.

    Welcome! I think one of the popular designs among teens is "Peace, Love and Mickey Mouse." You may want to browse our previous pages and/or our group Photobucket account for ideas.

    Sorry I have not posted in awhile. I just kept getting further and further behind. Then it makes it hard to catch up, especially on my phone. So I will not multiquote, I hope that is OK. I also went back about 10 pages, and I'm sorry if I missed anything.


    Pyrxtc:
    Great find on the mickey chairs, I love these!!!!
    Love the dresses for the contest, especially the last one with the purple flowers!

    Dianemom:
    Those t-shirt shorts are very cool!!

    Like those ruffle shirts/pants, especially with that great price on the fabric.
    And I love that pink Minnie polka dress and Mike dress, great finds! I have a cute tulle dress I was gonna add an applique to, but I’m afraid to ruin it, so I keep saving it for later. DD2 will have outgrown it before I get brave.

    Would love to hear more about your upcoming trip, or maybe I have to wait til the surprise is over???
    Cute cat shirt!!! Love that applique.

    Hey jude:

    Hope I didn't miss anything, if I did I am very sorry!!! I will try to do better. Oh I do have a trip planned for June, so if I ever get my act together, I will have a bunch of outfits(hopefully), probably finished as we are walking out the door.

    And I hope to post my niece's dress tomorrow.

    Very cute -- I quite like the ruffle fabric for the sleeves.

    I hooped a BG shirt really crooked once -- same as you, swore I had it straight. I hooped it at such an angle though that it looked like it was done on purpose and it worked (It was Pooh writing).

    Welcome! Your dd is so pretty! The photobucket account is listed on page 1 -- read the first post. I have a dd the same age who is also skinny. I buy her a lot of jeans and embellish those. I take smaller sizes and add length to the bottom with ruffles or deco. I never put my pics in the photobucket account but I should be posting a pair by the end of the week. I also deco'd a short denim skirt for a tween once and it's to do.

    This is an example of some jeans:
    [​IMG]

    And this shows the denim skirt (not a close up though):

    :rotfl2: You didn't miss anything b/c I haven't posted/finished anything. I am almost done with a pair of jeans though so stayed tuned!

    I really like the outfits! Great job! The illusion of the appliqué being crooked may be due to the placement of the fabric motif on the fabric. If not, it's so slight, no one will notice but you.;)

    I love how these turned out! Especially that ruffle fabric on the sleeves - super cute! I don't think anyone will notice the sandcastle... I think it might look that way due to the pattern on the fabric.

    Welcome! I love that snow white outfit - adorable! My favorite for my girls was the Audrey ruffle skirt by Lisa at Funktional Threads... You can buy her patterns here: http://www.youcanmakethis.com/search.htm?q=funktional+threads Next to Carla C and Oliver & S - Lisa's patterns are the best - and really geared at the tween - IMO.

    I also love Andrea's idea of embellishing a denim skirt. :wizard:

    Are you looking to make some things or to purchase some items?

    One way to have great t-shirts for one day is to make tie dye Mickey shirts. There is a thread on the Disboards with some directions for how to make them. You can easily purchase t-shirts for your entire family and tie dye them together. If you do make them I have two tips for you. First, use the same color dyes on all the t-shirts. The pictures come out a million times better that way. Second, use WAY more dye than you think you need on the shirts and make sure to squeeze some dye into the folds or your shirts will end up being mostly white. I have two younger teens and they are very picky about clothes. Even they love the Mickey tie dye shirts.

    If you are worried about appliqueing right onto the cute tulle dress, try doing your applique onto a piece of felt, trimming it close and then sewing that onto the dress. If you use a piece of contrasting color felt, then the applique will really stand out nicely. Plus, if you ruin the applique while you are making it, then you haven't lost much more than an inexpensive piece of felt.

    We are going to Disney for 3 days. I booked a room at the new Art of Animation resort. We've never stayed at a value resort before so I hope that I like it. But this is an expected, budget conscious trip so I am trying not to spend a fortune on it. I don't have much more than that planned out right now.

    I can't wait to see pictures of your dress.


    I remember when you hooped the BG shirt crooked. It ended up looking totally intentional and turned out great!

    I love the jeans and denim skirt. I can't wait to see your newest pair of jeans.

    Also Andrea, can you possible explain your math for the twirl skirts again? I never paid much attention to it but now I'm ready to make one with scraps that I've been saving and I can't remember your explaination.

    I certainly hope that it is because the pattern in the fabric isn't straight. It is just a dress for my niece to wear at the beach so it isn't that important. But if it was something I was going to sell, I'd make the while thing over.

    D- I missed getting your quote. I think I finally used up enough of that ruffled fabric that I can feel like I am done with it. I got it on a great deal from Girl Charlee but I really didn't love it. It was hard to work this and very sheer. It looked cute for the sleeves though. I doubt I will buy it again. I don't think I got to comment on your overalls on here but they are adorable! Even if they turned out a bit big, they will still get plenty of use. Plus, everybody gives newborn sized clothes as baby gifts and they grow out of that stuff so quickly (except my two girls who actually wore their newborn clothes for about 3 months because they were both tiny).

    Thanks guys. I'm going to show her some of these and see what she thinks. I'm looking to either buy or make. I can't sew very well, but my mom can. She can do embroidering or anything like that though. I think I will definitely make the tie dyed shirts. Hopefully I can get enough cool accessories to make any outfit worthy of her to wear. Lol

    I see that Andrea has responded to your question. I have to say I am bad about putting pictures on the group photobucket account - as in I haven't put any up!

    Welcome back! I am not sure I have posted anything I made lately, mostly because I haven't been sewing. I will be doing a bunch of sewing over the next few months as my brother-in-law and his wife are expecting their first child.

    I still think those outfits you made look great. I hope to see pictures of the jeans soon!

    Another idea you may want to consider is a park bag/purse for your special princess. This is my park bag:

    Since I am on my Photobucket account, I will post some outfits that I made for myself, as they may be acceptable to a tween too.

    A Minnie-inspired Rebecca dress

    A Minnie-inspired Jamie dress

    A retro Mickey Jamie dress

    Hopefully these pictures will get your creative juices going!

    Thanks for posting this, I can't wait to look at it!

    Love the Mulan outfit, very cute!!!

    I am very glad I didn't miss anything I was feeling bad. Can't wait to see the jeans!

    I need to try to do the tye dye shirts soon. I keep wanting to, but again afraid of messing up. I can be such a perfectionist, that many times I procrastinate so I can't "mess up".

    I have thought about the felt. I really like it better directly on the outfit. The material isn't too strtchy, so it should be fine....I think I can, I think I can....

    I would love to hear what you think about AoA. That is where we are staying in June for our 2nd trip. First trip was at ASMo, theming was fun, but yuk! And we did one night at AKV Kidani, which I loved. DVC someday, I hope!!!!

    PurpleEars:
    Your quote didn't show up, but I LOVE all those Disney inspired clothes of yours and that bag is awesome as well!!!!!!

    I will add another post with dress pics as they are on my phone and multiquoting is so much easier on the computer.
