Mimi G and two machines

I made a flannel shirt with the Simplicity Mimi G 8427 shirt pattern a few blogs ago.  Now I decided to make a short sleeve shirt from it since I tend to wear short sleeves more.

I took the size 38 pattern and simply cut the sleeves off at the lengthen/shorten line.  I used some cotton I bought at Wal-Mart for $1 a yard.

My Bernina 910 sewed this shirt.  It is so smooth and quiet.  The needle always stops in the up position. However, a tap with my heal on the pedal lowers the needle.  This machine also has a five-step manual buttonhole .

I decided to make a second shirt from a sheet.

My White Euroflair 8910 sewed the second shirt.   It is really a Husqvarna -Viking made for White.  It also lowers the needle with a touch of the pedal.  It has a three-step manual buttonhole.

I also have been taking a sampler quilt class at MIYstudio.  More on this in my next blog.

Thanks for stopping.


  1. I just got a Bernina 930, very similar machine! And I love your Euroflair. I have never heard of this machine and now you have me interested in it. It did a great job and you look fantastic in your new shirts (I especially like the first). AND your facial hair looks pretty sexy, too. It's fun not to shave, right? :)

  2. Love your shirts. They look great

  3. Nice job on your shirts! I have never heard of a White made by Husqvarna but I'm not surprised. Vikings are my favorite but the stitch quality on a Bernina is just so perfect.
