Beginner Serging: Machine Basics & Techniques »
Type of item: Clothing
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make something special for my grand-daughters for Christmas and found the material on sale.
What are you most proud of?
Before taking this course, I had no idea how to set the tensions to get the results I needed and, so, would not attempt this type of project.. I am very pleased with the professional look of the garment finish. I used a straight stitch to reinforce and secure the seams to avoid any fraying and the whole project was completed in 6 hours.
My little girls were thrilled with their gifts, as you can see from the picture.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I copied a garment I had for myself and downsized the measurements to suit but there are several on the market to buy for children. Do your 'Tension homework and trust yourself.
