Ok, I know it isn't sewing but I thought I'd share a few things that I made for the bat mitzvah. Here is the girls' candle lighting board:


Then these are some of the centerpieces:


And here are more centerpieces:;


I also made 18 tablecloths and a bunch of other stuff. I made their tallitots too. I think I shared pictures of them already.

These are quilt clips: http://amzn.com/B004ZKPX8A which are like small plastic clothespins that are flat on one side, so they lay flat when you're sewing. You basically use them to hold the quilt binding in place which is MUCH easier than pinning it. I have used them on a few quilts and I am very happy with how they hold everything in place, I never thought to use them on my shirts, but I will now! I always read to use binder clips or hair clips but they are so bulky they ended up being more of a problem. These are so small, like maybe 1/2 inch long. Such an awesome idea!

I was just actually wondering what to do with mine when my kids are done with it. I have a ton of things I made for my kids' trip last year that is already getting too small for one kid (the other kid might be able to wear it forever at his current growth rate...) but I can't part with it, they are all my FAVORITES! Crazy sentimental attachment, I guess. My boys still LOVE to wear their outfits though, and I intend to let them until they are too small. They wore their Mickey bowling shirts to preschool yesterday for Disney day, they said none of the other kids had Mickey shirts, "only princesses and cars" they said. I do sort of wonder if the preschool thinks I made special outfits for each theme, since they have reused their Disney AK Safari vests for Jungle Safari Day and The Buzz Lightyear Bowling shirts for Space day plus they had shirts I made for Valentines, Easter and St. Patricks Day. With 2 themes a week, I am not making a special shirt each time!

Good luck selling the 770 on ebay. I did super well on my Ellageo when I sold it there. But shipping was very expensive!

Love the shirt for your nephew. You are definitely the Queen of Bowling shirts! You do an excellent job on them. I always have one or two small mistakes each time I make one of those. And I dislike putting on collars.
Funny, the collars don't bother me but I mess up the sleeves nearly every time... Together we can make an awesome bowling shirt!
I have had pretty good success with selling stuff on ebay in the past but it is just a lot of time and effort I just don't have/want to expend right now. Too much going on.

In other news, today is my 180 days until our Halloween/Boys' Birthday trip so I got up early and put on a Spiderman cartoon to captivate the kids and got ALL the reservations I wanted! Time to get going on outfits! We're doing Be Our Guest on their actual birthday for dinner, and I did get breakfast at the castle with princesses at the request of my son who thinks we should go there to meet princesses (Such the ladies man.)
I also got them registered at the pirates league and got tickets to the halloween party. Now just 6 more months of waiting.

Yeah, maybe it's not the best idea to attempt for a first project! With my Mum's help though, I'm sure it'll turn out fine.

Do you have the gathering foot? I don't have that machine, but I recently bought a gathering foot for a Husqvarna. You don't have to adjust anything, just put the foot on.

Yours says it will do slight gathering, so adding that to the elastic in the bobbin should do the trick.

We're leaving on Saturday 5/18 (no park for us...long drive day) and have our last day Friday 5/17 pretty open. One ADR at Crystal Palace for lunch and we can do anything that strikes our fancy around that. DH is kind of interested in seeing the Star Wars characters, but since it is our last day we'll just have to do what the two year olds want...so perhaps!

Ok, I will do 1/2 a shirt and then mail it to you and you can do the rest.
So glad that you got all your desired reservations! That's great. I love that your boys want to eat with the princesses. We have done breakfast at Cinderella's palace twice. To tell you the truth, I prefer the princess dinner at Akershus (sp???) more. I felt there was more and better interaction with the princesses and my kids ate much more of the food. But the Cinderella castle is an awesome experience, especially for the real little ones.

Thanks!

I saw that there was a question about shirring with a Brother but I didn't manage to snag the quote. Anyhow, I have a Brother and the trick to getting it to shirr correctly, is to make sure that the elastic thread is in the bobbin area properly. I put my bobbin in and wind the elastic thread all the way through but then I don't use the self cutting thingy to cut it short. I hold it and bring the needle down to catch the bobbin thread. Does that make sense? There are all kinds of things on the web that suggest changing your bobbin case's tension and doing lots of other stuff. I don't do ANY of that. Just make sure you catch that elastic bobbin thread correctly and it will shirr like a dream.

Try IRONING with LOTS of steam after you do the shirring. It usually helps tighten up the stitching.

not specific to your machine, but see if any of the troubleshooting tips on this page help:

I just wrestled my first tshirt on the embroidery machine. I think I am being too much a perfectionist about the tension in the hoop. I didn't get it what I consider perfect, but the machine worked just fine until she decided she liked the taste of stabilizer. It was just one letter, so for what I wanted to do (basically test it on knits) it worked okay. And I know what I did to make it better.

Nini - Your grandbaby's name just sunk in. Amelia was my maternal grandmother's name and Elizabeth is my mom's name.

Sorry to all of those who had snow.

So without further ado here are some projects I just made. We are going on our first ever family WDW trip in 2 weeks and I have made two of each of the following dresses for my twin daughters. The dresses, as well as the entire trip, is a complete surprise for them, so it has been a challenge to work on the dresses while they're at school and hide the material before they get home.

For our first MK day, when we plan to meet Merida:

Great job on the dresses.

I went from my 4x4 to 5x7 within 3 mths and then I still had hoop envy and bought my 6x10 machine this summer.

Now for the important part - pics!


Note the tiger striped waistband. I searched for a month for tiger striped cotton. I found tiger striped fleece, tiger striped silky fabric, tiger striped fur, tiger striped flannel, blue tiger stripes, green tiger stripes and even some tiger striped ribbon - but no tiger colored cotton tiger striped fabric!
Love the skirt

The delivery did not go as planned, my daughter had some serious problems and they decided to do an emergency c-section. It changed, literally, within less than an hour! She will have to remain on anti-seizure meds for a couple more months, but we did have a wonderful outcome.

I felt a little sorry for my son in law. I told you he was a bit squeamish...well, I didn't get there quick enough to go into surgery with her, so he had to go in. He held up like a trooper and did a great job! I got to speak to him a few minutes before he went back and he had started to calm down a bit and he went through it with
Nini
Congrats on your new grand baby.

I also got some good news, I think, while I was at Joann's yesterday. Our offer was countered for a house in TX and it was reasonable so I guess I have a new house ??? We still have to sign the new offer, which I thought we would have last night, but I am a bit scared and excited about the move. Also about paying two mortgages since our house hasn't sold yet. The house is gorgeous, I think from the pictures, but I haven't seen it in person yet. Only my Dh walked through, I still haven't been to TX yet at all. Will they let me walk through when I get there ? I arrive on the 9th of this month to "house hunt" but hopefully I can see the new house. Maybe I will try to schedule the inspection while I am there, then I know I get to go through it with them. The house is empty, bank owned, no no worries about inconveniencing homeowners.
Love the Mickey fabric & what a great deal!!!

And now for one photo I don't appreciate
I absolutely love those skirts! How did ou make them?? Im in process of deciding on animal kingdom outfits for my kiddos.

I noticed that Jen explained what quilt clips are. I just decided to give them a whirl the other day and they made my day! They are also great for working with materials that cannot be pinned (like vinyl).

I would make sure you leave long tails of both the top thread and the elastic thread in the bobbin on each end so they don't pull out.

I did some late night sewing for my dd on Tuesday before we went to a Tigers baseball game, but I haven't had time to upload pics yet. I will get to that and some other good news that happened today in my usual Sunday evening post. I've got to get to work tonight! Only 8 more sewing days until the craft show and 14 before our vacation! Eek!

Regards,

I guess I am just not very good at rolling and pinning the shirts! I am sure the vacation will be a nice treat after the craft show!

In other news, today is my 180 days until our Halloween/Boys' Birthday trip so I got up early and put on a Spiderman cartoon to captivate the kids and got ALL the reservations I wanted! Time to get going on outfits! We're doing Be Our Guest on their actual birthday for dinner, and I did get breakfast at the castle with princesses at the request of my son who thinks we should go there to meet princesses (Such the ladies man.)
I also got them registered at the pirates league and got tickets to the halloween party. Now just 6 more months of waiting.
Thanks for explaining the quilt clips. I just thought they may help one day and sure enough, they did. I hope others will find that useful too!

Hooray for 180 days and getting all the reservations you wanted. I can't wait to see the outfits you will make for the trip!

I looked at a picture of Sentry Turret and it certainly doesn't look like the easiest item to make! I am sure you will get it done though
