I use Maxi-Lock Stretch and Regular Maxi-Lock serger thread. This tutorial is solely
based off the size of Maxi-Lock serger cones. If you have other brands of serger thread that are the same size as the Maxi-Lock Serger cones these will work as well as they are the same size.
We all have serger cones when owning a serger. We find so many different ways in how we can
store our serger cones. The best storage for me is storing them in a drawer. However, with
them being in a drawer I began getting annoyed with how they would mysteriously unravel.
Almost like a sewing elf crawled into my drawer and had a thread party. When opening the
drawer to change the color of my serger cone, I would spend 30 minutes unraveling them from
each other. I tried placing them in a basket on a self, but my house gets dusty from all the traffic
in and out of the house. I was scared dust would get on them and ruin my machine. Finally one

Hi, I am Pam. Mom to 4 boys and 1 girl. I was blessed with a special angel and through him he has taught me many things about life. I ventured off in sewing to make cloth diapers for him and the younger two to help save money. Never realized how much I would love sewing till then. As our daughter got older I began making clothes for her and designing items that were different. Many of my friends loved my ideas and asked for me to share them. I would share most of my simple ideas with them and they loved them. When I designed a skirt for a special child with special needs everyone begged for that pattern. So, here I am sharing my ideas and designs with you now. I hope you find the things I create simple, yet cute and easy to assemble. I enjoy being different and creating unique designs. Most of all, I enjoy seeing children smile from my creations. Thanks for allowing me to share my ideas. You can also find me on thePluckyButterflyDesigns.comView all patterns by designer (8) »
