Hi ladies and gents,
I realize it’s been awhile. The thing is, I’ve been sewing. I just haven’t had time to post about it. Fear, not! I am back…
I made my kids some pajamas for Christmas, and they love them! I think that’s what inspires me the most about sewing for other people–seeing the excitement they get from something I made. It makes me happy.
The best part about these pajamas was that I got to use my serger for the ENTIRE project. I’m pretty sure (two months later) that my regular machine didn’t even touch a seam, except to sew on the label.
I even got up the nerve to use the cover-stitch on my serger for the hem (i.e. read the manual to use that stitch!). It top-stitches on the outside, and serges on the bottom to create a stitch similar to using a twin needle. It’s freaking awesome!
After seeing how well they fit, I promptly went out and bought more knit fabric to make a couple more pairs of jammies!
