Beginner Serging: Machine Basics & Techniques »
InstructionsThis was my first ever project on a serger and there was a moment when I was ready to pack the machine up and return it! If you get to that point, then stop, take a break (I had a Cosmopolitan) and try again.
Type of item: Functional
Style: Whimsical, Holiday, Cute
100% cotton quilt weight fabrics and standard serger thread.
What was your inspiration?
I have wanted a silly, frilly apron for years! This class was the perfect excuse to finally get one.
What are you most proud of?
I'm pretty sure the total for the supplies was about $5. I saw a similar Christmas apron at a big-box store that was marked down to about $15 and mine is WAY CUTER!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If this is your first project on a serger, be patient! I had serious problems with the threading and it took me 3-4 hours to get it to work properly.
