Beginner Serging: Machine Basics & Techniques »
Type of item: Accessory
What was your inspiration?
I really struggled with serging the zipper into these bags. So...I kept practicing! I also played around with the size and not boxing the sides.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I found the best way for me to get the zipper right was to use 1/4" wonder tape to 'baste' the zipper to the bag before serging. I also used wonder clips for the first time and I really like them for the serger. The wonder clips are much easier to see than regular needles. This helps avoid running over a pin and ruining a needle or the blade.
