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.
