We just moved into a new home and I found that my bedroom drapes were a few inches too short. Oh， no! What to do？ Lengthen them by adding tabs to the top， of course! So off to the fabric store I went. I cut rectangles of fabric twice the needed length plus about 2″；sofa pillow covers， and stitched the sides together. I drew a line 1？”； from one short end， marked the center of the strip about ？”； from the end， then stitched to connect the dots and form a point at the end of each tab. Then I turned them right side out and pressed them.
To apply the gimp trim to the edges， I selected my widest zigzag stitch (9 mm)， attached my all-purpose dual feed？foot (BERNINA Reverse Pattern Foot #1D)， and engaged the BERNINA Dual Feed on my BERNINA 830. If you don’；t have an 8 Series machine with Dual Feed， use a walking foot instead (BERNINA Walking Foot #50).decorative pillow cases
Stitching the trim in place with a 9 mm zigzag stitch was a snap using BERNINA Dual Feed.
No stretching， no shifting! (No ripping!)
How easy was that？!

Before we left on our Disney Cruise for Spring Break I created a few Personalized Disney Family shirts. I even made a fun Disney inspired beach bag to tote around the boat with me.
