Susan was kind enough to let me borrow her serger last week. I had a pile of fabric scraps that were too small for any real projects and too big to throw away, so I thought “napkins”! And “dishtowels”!
The serger sat for a week before I had time to use it (newborn lambies are much more fun to play with!) but last night I sat down a sewed up a whole big pile o’ cloth napkins.
There’s no real matching sets to speak of, they’re not all exactly the same size. But I love, love, LOVE how they came out. The serged edges look so much nicer than a plain fold – over hem would.
Now I am thinking about all of the cute clothing projects I could finish up with such lovely seams!
It’s the best isn’t it…Literally, I had sewn for 20 years when i got a serger – i couldn’t imagine how i’d done without it!
