First Serger Project

It took me quite a while to figure out the tension and what stitch goes where, but after a good bit of work I knocked out my very first Serger project. It’s a pattern from Ottobre Spring 2009. If you’ve never looked at Ottobre, give it a try. It’s a Finnish magazine that publishes around 40 patterns per issue, and many of them will work for boys or girls, so it’s a fantastic value. I believe you can purchase them in the U.S. from The Wooly Thread and Sewzanne’s Fabrics. Anyway, this was my first time serging, my first time applying ribbing, and my second time ever to work with knits. I don’t think it turned out half bad.

I believe I’ve decided a serger is completely worth it.  I actually feel it’s easier than a conventional sewing machine and much, much faster.  If you’re looking for a new one, I’ve heard nothing but good things about the Borther 1034D. Had I not been given my Bernette I would have purchased that Brother for sure. And keep a look out; the price occasionally drops below $200 and the machine is available through Amazon and Walmart as well. If you’re looking for great knits, try the fabrics at Chez Ami. Their knits are high quality and reasonable. Their clearance knits are $3.50/yd (2 yd minimum), and it doesn’t get any better than that!

    Can I simply say what a relief to uncover an individual
    who actually understands what they are talking
    about on the internet. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and
    make it important. More people really need to check this out and
    understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular since
    you certainly have the gift.

    Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are
    you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
