Beginner Serging: Machine Basics & Techniques »
InstructionsI used PUL to make the lining water-resistant, but it stretched and was difficult to control next to the batting, so I don't recommend it - perhaps if you're willing to tack it in place before sewing!

Quilting cotton, batting, thread, PUL lining, zip, overlocker
What was your inspiration?
The remnant was just the right size and matched well with the 4-colour threading on the overlocker at the time - anything not to have to rethread when it's working well!
What are you most proud of?
The free-motion stippling around all the eyeballs - you can't really see it, but as my husband said, "It makes a really interesting texture".
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Use the thinnest batting you can find, then quilt it densely for stiffness - the overlocker really hated the thickness of all these layers (and it's just a thin cotton batting).
