Today’s Saturday and I played around with my blind stitch presser foot and my serger. I learned three new techniques just by reading my manual, and they were all crazy easy.
I used my blind stitch presser foot that came with my machine. This foot has a little fabric guide that can be adjusted by rolling a little nut along the threads to move the guide nearer and further from the actual foot. It also has a little guard on it to keep fabric away from the machine’s knife. But I’d imagine you could pull off all of these with your regular presser foot, if you are SUPER careful in keeping your fabric running along where it needs to be.
I was totally surprised at how much my machine is capable of with the techniques I learned today.
It occured to me that you can totally make a garment from start to finish with just your serger, if you needed to. I realize that’s probably not a novel idea, but it was kind of an ah-ha moment for me. I’m slow like that.
I really had a lot of fun learning these new tricks today. They’re totally simple, and I love the results. So if you haven’t done anything but trim and finish edges on your serger, click through the links above and try something new out.
