11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: kitschy postcard from my summer vacation on: July 16, 2008 08:53:55 PM
WooHoo, I get to be the first receiver to post Cheesy

I got my postcard from elvissatx:

The post card looks vintage.  It says "Looking down Bath House Row, Hot Springs National Park, Ark." and on the bottom "Army and Navy Hospital at Left"

It is great getting fun mail and I love the postcard.  I will try to get mine out this weekend.  Can't wait to see everyone else's.  Yaayyy!!!

This is in my hometown!  I was paging through the Recent Posts & saw something that looked familiar.  That's so cool.  A new spa opened up down there this week in one of the old bath houses.  BTW, I loved Tiny Town when I was a kid!

We went to Disney earlier this summer for the 1st time.  My 5yo is now in love with the princesses.  I got this same fabric, pink gingham & all, a few weeks ago with plans of makin ga stripework skirt.  I have thi sdress pattern also.  Our daughters must have the same taste!  I'm glad to see they go so well together.  You did a great job.  The ruffle on the dress is adodrable.

audrey-How long have you been working on yours?  I have a bag of yo-yos I am working on planning to have a throw by Christmas.   I have been sewing so much lately that i haven't had any down time to make yo-yos, so I am behind.  Yours looks great.  I can't wait to see mine at that point.

It is really cute.  I have one almost just like this cut out for myself, I just haven't stopped sewing for the girls long enough to finish it.  My drawstring & casing is wider, it even has a contrast band at the bottom like yours.  I'll post it soon hopefully.

I have the same blue sheet I picked up for 0.65 at Goodwill a month or so ago.  Yours is much brighter than mine though.  Looks great!  I'm planning to make both daughters a skirt.

Beautiful!  And what a wonderful heirloom.  I have one my mom made that both of my girls were dedicated in.  I love how classic & simple it is.  It looks really well made also.  The trim you added is just the right touch.  Great work!

I'm glad you figured out the ruffle thing. I thought the same thing as Nylasyke- I knew that ruffle couldn't be tripled.  I have made a solid white peasant top like this too.  I put four pintucks in the front before I added the casing for the neck.   It was a really sweet touch.  They went down about 5 inches. 
18  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Making a skirt and shirt attachable and detachable on: July 08, 2008 12:13:46 PM
Since it is for kids I might use velcro.  This would also distribute the weight of the skrit evenly along the hem of the shirt. 
19  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: applique on t-shirt on: July 08, 2008 12:12:14 PM
When I applique on T-shirt material I like to put stabilizer underneath to keep it from puckering.  I don't know if this will help your problem, but it sure wouldn't hurt to try it.  I use peel & stick stabilizer that I use for machine embroidery, put iron on pellon, or stitch & tear would work also.
20  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: where to find alexander henry fabrics? (in the us) on: July 08, 2008 11:48:14 AM
I drove an hour to a larger nearby town a few weeks ago jsut to go to a fabric store listed on the AH fabrics website.  The store doesn't even exist anymore!  I was so disappointed.  On their website that would have been the closest place for me.   Come to find out Hobby Lobby in my town carries a few AH fabrics.  Just not any of the ones I was loking for.  I want some of the awesome florals, & they had the Route 66 stuff.  It has gold foil ends on the bolts, that is an easy way to search for it.  It is already so much more expensive than what I normally pay for fabric.  I can't stand the thought of paying shipping on top of that.  There are several different designers that I am dying to have some of their fabric (tanya Whelan, Heather Bailey, etc) & I just can't find them around here.   Cry
