Beginner Serging: Machine Basics & Techniques »
InstructionsI used a Size 2 t-shirt for a pattern, and used the shirt to practice some of the overlocker stitches - mainly coverstitch, which has always given me trouble.
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Cute, Casual
knit fabric, ribbon, overlocker, threads, decorative varegated thread
What was your inspiration?
I wanted a project to practice the difficult bits on - coverstitch and flatlocking. I can't say I've mastered either, but I have learned a bit.
What are you most proud of?
I did actually get the coverstitch working! ...Until I tried giving it a decorative thread, then it all went horrible. But it worked for attaching the ribbon!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Organise the project so you can do all the steps that require a particular stitch at once, then re-thread and do the next part...
