Pattern Description:

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
day it dawned on me. I need to make serger cone covers. So I took out my scrap bin of knits and
began playing around. Now I have awesome covers for my serger cones. The best thing about it
all, I color code my covers to my cones so it makes it fun. Now I can leave them out and not
worry about dust getting on them or little hands unraveling the whole cone of thread creating a
booby trap!
