This is the bathroom in the house we are buying. Any thoughts for paint colors? I was thinking maybe some sort of gray, or a teal, or a limey light green. The tile is about the color pictured. It's much lighter than most 50s green tile I've seen.
your options are to sew through the post cards with heavy duty thread and leaving about 2 inches in between. This is obviously very hard on a needle, (which should be fresh at the start of the project and tossed after). I'm betting it's also hard on your machine, but I"m not sure. Or, you can hot glue the postcards to fishing line (monofilament) or ribbon and make loop at the end and safety pin the loops to the table cloth. You could pin the safety pins from the back of the tablecloth, so you'd only see a bit.
they are circles and squares anywhere from 1-5 inches in size. I think they will be hard to roll, since the larger ones we glued at two points. Also, they are so long, they end up overlapping. here's a picture. The other half is on the other side of the door. I'll try the binder clip idea, that just might do the trick!

Don't worry about zippers, I think I was sewing for 5 years before I tried. Start with zipper pouches, like makeup bags or zippered pockets in purses. All very straight, so they work better. As to the tutu, if you feel like it, you could make another one and your sister might grow into the pink one (so cute by the way). I made a bunch of stuff for my little sister, and she grows out of everything fast.
