An upcoming shower for an expected baby girl to be named 'Maggie'.... short for Margaret Ruth.
(I'm so glad I took the time to write down my own instructions for myself, as it was hard to remember as I've not made one of these in a while.)
A 36" x 36" flannel fabric...
'Sugar and spice and everything nice....
THAT's what little girls are made of.'
Adorable! Boy, a serger really comes in handy in certain circumstances, doesn't it? I've never owned one but worked for a lady doing custom sewing and used hers. I remember coming home one day and telling my husband, "I have GOT to get a serger!" But then never did that type sewing of my own that would warrant actually purchasing and using one.ReplyDelete
You're exactly right Mama Pea in that a serger is most useful in sewing clothes as most other sewing projects like quilting and home dec don't need a serger's usefulness. I used to make all my two girl's clothing when they were little, with most of those clothes being knit pants and knit shirts and this serger was purchased way back then.... maybe mid-1990's.... and with its differential feed adjustment for sewing knits without 'stretching' them, not to mention the amount of clothing I've made.... it has more than paid for itself. I would only purchase a serger if I was sewing clothing.Delete
Who wouldn't like a lovely gift like that!! NancyReplyDelete
