For Christmas, my awesome in-laws got me a serger. I promptly started taking classes, and having all my time sucked up by that. Last week, I finally got a chance to pull out the machine and take it for a whirl. I was pleasantly surprised at how un-scary it was to thread (this is what I had been told was the worst part of sergers). I needed a project to practice on, that I didn’t care much about, but that also wasn’t just practicing on scraps (I find that not very motivating).
I ended up making Jesse some new cloth wipes, since the cheap washcloths we’d been using were really not very nice, and I had some flannel receiving blankets I could cut up. The were so easy! I think I may be hooked! 16 new wipes (and 10 more older cloth wipes refurbished) in about an hour.
