I Bought The Piping Foot For My Serger

30 Nov

So the other day I bought the piping foot for my serger. I love using it to put on zippers. It gives it such a nice close finish, so I think I found my new zipper tool. Here’s the tutorial on how to make these cute little bags. I also bought the gathering foot so I’ll play with that later when I make curtains. Maybe I’ll post some pictures of using the gathering foot later tonight. Wish me luck!

1. 8 inch plastic zipper

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

3. Pins
