    Welcome! Of course you can get all that done!!:faint: Seriously, that's a lot of work, but if you love it so much, it doesn't seem like work at all. My hang up is the cutting out part. Once that's done, the sewing is such fun! Good luck and don't forget to post pictures of all your creations.:goodvibes

    Yay!!! So glad for you! Hope there's a deal coming soon! Keep us posted.:thumbsup2

    What a lot of work to get a house ready to sell! Hope it sells quickly. I've been away for four days visiting family. How did the grandparents like the dress? And the little birthday princess? I'm sure they were thrilled!

    Love, love, love that backpack!! What great ideas for everything! The fabric is such fun too. Have a great trip! I know I said that before, but it does bear repeating. I'm quoting the aforementioned post of course!;)

    Trying to sell a house is so stressful. I guess I should be happy (?) that the market here is terrible and that my neighbors all bought more than they could afford so my neighborhood is littered with foreclosures so we would never be able to sell our house anyway. (sigh.) It does help purge though, so that's always good. We had a realtor come to our old house and she took TERRIBLE photos, they were all off-kilter and some were blurry, and none of them showed the rooms, more like just the furniture, so I used my super-wide lens and took my own photos, I truly think it helps to have great photos.

    I have been busy busy, my mother in law got here friday for a week visit, though we are supposed to be getting an uber snowstorm so it is unclear if she will be staying longer. She has been occupying my kiddos so I can work on etsy orders and finish up a LOT of unfinished projects. I finished this quilt which I started last summer.

    And I got a commission from a friend I have known since High School to make a baby quilt as a gift for a friend of hers. I love the way it is turning out, I got the whole quilt top done, now onto the tedious task of layers/quilting/trimming/binding.

    I think most of the appliques came from Lynnie Pinnie, I think they turned out adorable. It's for a little girl who has an under-the-sea theme nursery.

    Now back to my little sweatshop so I can get back to my projects.

    That little quilted jellyfish is the cutest thing I've ever seen! (though the whole quilt is a masterpiece... lovely!)

    Both the quilts are adorable, but the "under the sea" one is so unique and is turning out beautifully! Can't wait to see the finished project. Do you quilt by hand or machine?

    Nice to have someone to watch the kiddos so you can get things done.

    Hope you don't get hit too hard with the snow storm.

    I would suggest looking at our group Photobucket account for inspirations. If you see something you like, some of us have an etsy shop in the signature or you may PM the poster.

    I have that problem too. I saved a piece of fabric but I have no clue where it is anymore. I tried looking for it a couple of weeks ago.

    Welcome! You can do applique "by hand" - there is a great tutorial from page 1 of this thread.

    Welcome! I am sure you will get your list done. Please share pictures of your outfits in action!

    I hope you will enjoy staying at the Polynesian. We enjoyed Pop when we stayed there, though we now prefer staying at Conorando Springs.

    It's Photobucket and their silly new website!

    I am glad that you found the fabric. I am excited that you had 2 offers on the house on RI. I hope that will work out for you!

    Great job on the bag and accessories! I hope you will have a fantastic trip!

    The quilts look beautiful. I am sure your friend will love the Under the Sea quilt.

    Hooray for finding the wolf fabric! But an even bigger hooray for getting two offers on the RI house. I hope that one of them works out for you! Please keep us up to date on what's going on!

    Funny how that works, isn't it???? Some days there are a bizillion posts on here and other days there are none. Getting the house ready to sell is hard work. I don't enjoy moving but I do enjoy the massive cleaning out that goes with moving. We haven't moved in 7 1/2 years and I can feel the clutter just accumulating everywhere!

    I love all the stuff you made. The crazy quilt design on the backpack is just awesome!!! I love it! It must have been fun to put together. And I adore the little place holder that says I'm Back! And the hand sanitizer is a must at any theme park. It seems like you thought of everything. Your tissue case, first aide kit and wallet are wonderful. You are going to look terrific! I wish I was going to be there so I could check all the food carts to see what you are snacking on!

    Have you looked on Etsy for somebody who will make something for you? That seems like the best place to start. There are also some place on FB to look.

    Your owl quilt is beautiful. And I just love the under the sea themed quilt. It is so cute how you put the little girl's name on the mermaid square. I love the jellyfish in the middle. The color scheme is so different than what you usually see for a little girl.

    Grandfather kind of poo-pooed the dress. He said he was thinking of something more simple. he didn't look happy at all. So much so that I went out and bought a pattern that resembled my dresses from the contest and some more fabric to make a new dress. When I called to offer that to him he let me know that he gave the dress to his grand-daughter Friday night.

    He told me that she only had one word for it..... EXCELLENT ! She put it on and twirled around in it for 2 hours and refused to take it off. Of course Mom was happy. He was really surprised that she liked it. he said he didn't know little girls like princess things so much. It fit her perfectly with a little room to grow. He also told me that he will find a time to bring her over in it so I can see her in it.

    I was JUST thinking about you and the house this morning. I so hope and pray you are able to secure a deal!

    This is completely adorable! I hope you have a wonderful trip!


    Beautiful work!

    Too funny that a man didn't get it. I'm glad he gave it to he anyway and it sounds like she was thrilled!

    Regards,
    C.

    I do the quilting with the machine. It's just a regular old home sewing machine so baby quilts are OK but anything much bigger can be a struggle. I am going to make twin-sized quilts for my boys someday and will outsource those to be quilted I think.

    My friend said they are decorating her room in blues and light greens, not typically girly, but I think it will be adorable. I love that it's not typical, and the jellyfish is really a very cute applique. I actually got that one from dailyembroidery.com, I signed up for their monthly unlimted ($15 I think.) and got about 300 misc designs. Some very cute ones and lots of fonts. Canceled before the month was out, I don't need to be paying $15/month.

    Before I got to the second paragraph I was so sad, I am so glad the little girl loved it. It was just gorgeous and a perfect princess dress.

    Hi everyone!!

    Wow! Just wow! You all do such beautiful work! That backpack and accessories is to-die-for. And the quilts are just lovely.

    I have 2 weeks until we head to DLR, but I'm out of town working at a quilt show, so I can't get started on my girl's dresses yet. But, I did get the fabric. I'm excited to get started!

    I am far behind but I think I got all the quotes.

    Just wanted to say "Welcome" to all the new folks.

    The shirts for DH are perfect. You have the luckiest nice and nephews. The shorts are adorable but I can't pick a favorite. Love all the plaid fabrics and the nautical theme.

    Great news about your machine. You wouldn't want to feel less then GREAT about such a huge purchase. Sounds like you will be busy babysitting and enjoying your grandkid so we will patiently wait for your next creations.

    so cute, great idea to make the Minnie removable

    This is so nice. How sweet to make that for a give. Hope you are dug out from the blizzard.

    Oh, these are so sweet. The Wendy PJs are lovely. Your DD is adorable. I usually sew for my nieces who live in NC so I don't have live models. It also makes it hard to sew for them but my brother and sister have their own measuring tape. Unfortunately they always seem to mess up something when measuring.

    LOVE these shirts. What a great idea.

    Love the upcycle but that Epcot dress is AMAZING. The appliques are wonderful and the fabrics are beautiful.


    Lost the picture but this dress is so pretty. So funny that grandpa didn't care for the dress too much but his granddaughter did. I guess that is the reason why you don't see grandpas shopping for their grandkids too often. Glad she liked it.


    This is a perfect Annie dress. Your DD is so cute and I love the tap shoes. I always go with the measurements for Carla's patterns. She makes it easy to customize the clothes. I usually just make the easy-fits for PJ pants and usually make the next size down if it is for a skinny child since I can customize the length.

    So cute, I love the colors. Might have to put a Chip and Dale outfit on our list for our next trip. They are always so much fun and they LOVE my mom. LOL


    Welcome. Sounds like you will be busy. Hope you get a chance to post some pictures.

    Hmm, Cheryl I lost the quote with your backpack and accessories. Love the patchwork bag and the zipper pocket in the front. Your little accessories are awesome. Was the sanitizer holder an ITH project? Great little wallet with hidden money compartment. The customized key chain is so cute. Hmmm, no matching pill holder? You are slacking. ;) I hope you have a great trip. Enjoy the poly and the visit with your DS.

    Sorry, I am just getting to see this. I use these directions but sometimes leave out the 3rd piece of fabric. I find it forces me to iron the pillowcase after washing and I only iron during the sewing process NOT after.

    I see you have gotten some responses. Posters on the Disboards are not allowed to sell items but if you look in some people's signatures they have links to their etsy or facebook shops. Lots of folks make strip skirts with different animal print fabrics for AK.

    Seems your full time babysitter is great for your sewing! The owl quilt is so pretty and so is the blue one. Weird that the realtor didn't take good pictures. I think without good pictures you don't get the people to actually come to your house to look at it. Good luck cleaning, hope your house sells quick.

    Andrea - great news about getting two offers. Hopefully there will be a bidding war and the house will sell quickly.

    Since the kiddos have already received their outfits, I figured I would share here. I made these for the Star Wars week Big Give, the wish kid is 7, and has twin sisters who are 4. The dresses are simply sweet animal-kingdom inspired, then I made star-wars-mickey-head shirts for all 3 kids, including one pink one purple for the girls. I made shorts to go with his, they are easy-fits with bargo pockets, I think they turned out really cute. I love being able to contribute to these gives, I am so glad I found this group and you have all been so welcoming and inspirational.

    Seriously? What did he think a "party" dress looked like??? So glad the little birthday girl and her Mom loved it. It was absolutely beautiful!!


    Ooooh lots of great fabric!! Hope you can get it all completed.:thumbsup2

    Those are amazing dresses! The twins will flip out over them! And I love your use of that star wars fabric for the appliqué and the cargo pockets. I'm sure they all loved their items. It's so nice that you love being part of the big gives. I'm glad for them as well. My kids and grandkids are all healthy with no issues and my heart just goes out to the families with challenges. It's so nice to have an outlet where we can send a little love their way.::yes::

    I've read so much about split stays I'll be curious to see if I think it was worth it in the end. I know what you mean about wanting to spend some time at the Polynesian after spending all the money to stay there. I think that's why I usually end up at a value resort, because I need only the bed (and maybe a shower if I'm there more than a week :rotfl2: ).


    I keep looking at Southwest's website. Since they don't have change fees I'm tempted to go a day early just to hang out at the resort.


    I wonder how much I'd have to pay someone to sign for me. Most of my spare money is designated for Mickey head ice creams and Grey Goose slushies.


    I don't want to look toooooo young. I need that 10% discount at the day old bread store on senior day.

    :sad1:

    :banana::banana::banana:


    Sometimes it's hard to tell over the internet, but I could tell that you were kidding, and know there's NO chance it could be me. :angel:


    My name in lights :cool2::cool2::cool2:

    It might have been me. I've been know to kill threads.

    So happy that the dress turned out just right! I was so worried at the beginning of your post!:cool1:

    I've never heard of that site. But I definitely am too cheap to spend $15 per month on designs. :rotfl:

    Make sure you come back and post some pictures of what you make with all that pretty fabric!!

    I love all the stuff that you sent. But I have to admit that the Mickey dresses are my favorites. I'm not a huge SW fan though so I guess I'm biased.

    This will be our first time staying at a value resort when we go in June. I'm curious about whether we will enjoy it or not. Since we are going in the summer (HOT!!!!) I am pretty sure we will need a shower at least one time while we are there!

    Here is a dress that I finished up today:
