I Love Mom

A Serger
This serger came with my embroidery machine but I had never gotten it out of the box until last week.  I went for a "lesson" last week in Sulphur while on Easter break.  Sergers can be used for finishing seams, doing hems and many other things.  However, they can be hard to thread because most have 4 spools of thread.  It can be a challenge to get the thing threaded and ready to use.

This is my serger from the back.  I am learning.  I have several things I want to learn to do that require serging.  So I started tonight.

This little Mother's Day onesie needed a ruffle on the back.

First I made the ruffle on my machine and then I finished the edges with the serger.

It's not perfect but it's a start.  I like a challenge and I will keep working on threading my serger and finishing edges and seams.  Next a rolled hem :)

  1. That is such a cute "I love Mom" design!
    I've had a hand-me-down serger for 2 years that I haven't ever plugged in. :( I know I'd probably love it if I could just take the time to learn. Good for you! Have fun!
