I Picked Up Some Serger Thread

1128141930

I can’t help myself! It was buy one get one free at Joann’s! I know you really only need to change the needle thread when you use the serger, but I’m making some change purses and I just really want the edges to look better, so I think the same color thread as fabric would be a better option.

Serger Tutorial: Small Makeup Bag

These cute little make up bags are super easy to make when you have a serger! The serger trims, overcasts, and puts on your zipper! Just make sure to use a heavy enough fabric and to use a plastic zipper! To be honest I would not recommend doing this on a very cheap serger, as it will have to sew through the zipper, and some cheaper sergers cannot handle it.

What you’ll need for this project:

1. 8 inch plastic zipper

2. Piece of fabric (I used upholstery fabric) that is 7″ by 14″

3. Pins

Finished The Duvet Cover

It took me a while, but I made this duvet cover for a customer! I wanted to finish it last night, but I had a date to go on, so I was a bit preoccupied! However, I just finished sewing the velcro on to close up the opening, so I’m quite excited to get this in the mail on Monday! I hope he likes it! It was quite an adventure, this being the first project I used my serger on! It was quite the good investment! I feel like I’m going to be using it a lot!

Using My Serger Like A Boss!

I’m so proud of myself! I actually used my serger, and got all the tensions right, and it turned out great! I used it to make the duvet cover I’m working on, and I think it gave it a nice professional seam on the inside, and now I don’t have to worry about it fraying! I’m so happy I have a serger now! I feel like he and I are going to be good friends!

I Just Got A Serger!

I took the plunge! I got a Viking 200S serger! I’m just in love with it! Now, to be honest, I never thought I would need a serger, but I had someone tell me about how they put on the binding with a serger, and I thought… “Well that sounds amazing!” So, now I have a serger to play around with! I just have to wait for serger thread to go on sale… not that I don’t have any, but now I need more! Last night all I really had time to do was play around with the tensions a bit because I’ve got a few commissions to work on, but after the holidays, I’m going to be pounding out throw pillows on it! Wish me luck!
