Here is my tip - Save money on sewing thread and buy it on the cones (usually made for the serger). It is alot cheaper and you get so much more.
I bought this http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/p...RODID=prd12768 and it holds the cone so that it can be used on any machine - I love it!!
I am kind of new to sewing, but isn't it usually a thinner thread on the cones? I could be wrong.

My tip is pretty commonly used, but it was awesome when I heard of it so maybe it will help somebody out.

Instead of trying to cut the tulle eacch piece at a time, roll it around a cookie sheet or a piece of cardboard and cut several pieces at once. It is a GREAT timesaver!

Oh another tip is to make your pacifier clips universal by adding a thin ribbon loop at the end instead of the snap. I make the hole to thread the loop through by burning a hole with my woodburner and then just crease and stitch.
