Guys. Wanna see some guts?
I knew you would. You’re gross.
Look, a beautiful French seam! See how neat and tidy?
A little tab to differentiate front from back (in a matching pink, to boot)! But wait– what’s that goodness there?
What, this old thing? Oh, it’s nothing… only a NEATLY OVERLOCKED CROTCH SEAM.
That’s right. I HAVE A SERGER NOW.
OK. Take a deep breath. BWAAAAAHHHHHH I HAVE A SERGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can you tell that I’m REALLY excited about this?
It’s the Brother 1034D, and it’s quite the reasonable fellow (with shockingly good reviews on Amazon!). I’ve been eyeballing it for quite some time, and after Gail bought the same model and loved it, I decided I HAD to have it. HAD to. I opened up the box, got really scared by all the parts and the manual. The DVDs provided with the machine wouldn’t really play correctly on my Mac, but I found this easy tutorial from Artist Kae on Youtube, and I was serging in about 10 minutes! Thanks for sharing the video, gal! I may have been jumping up and down and shouting like a lunatic after I serged the crotch seam. It’s just so… perfect? Clean? Elegant? FANCY? I’m in love!
What are you guys up to? Cookin’ up any big projects? I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t wait to see photos of Maddie’s dress! And I’m still making my way through your PJ posts– so, so cute! I can’t believe how fun that was!
