Vintage Inspired Apron

This is the November 29 Baby Lock Serger Class at both Wimmer’s locations:
Ogden from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
and
Layton from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
If you are nearby, I would love to have you join us.
Go to Wimmer’s Web site to sign up.
The pattern is Simplicity 1221.
I modified it to be sewn entirely on the serger.
Instead of purchased binding,
we will make custom binding using the binder attachment.

The patch pocket is sewn on using the chain stitch.

The ties are finished off with a rolled hem.
This would make a lovely,
new apron for you to wear during your Christmas baking,
– or –
it would make a thoughtful gift for someone special.
Do you use your serger for more than just finishing seams?
Let me know in the comment section.
Thanks for visiting today.

Basic Serger Pillow with Hidden Zipper Closure

Happy Fall, sewing friends!
It’s time to start sewing for Christmas!
This is the October serger project that I am teaching
at our local Baby Lock/Husqvarna Viking dealer.

The pillow cover itself is just a basic, simple, no-frills cover.
The fun part is learning how to serge the hidden zipper closure.
Since very few supplies and fabric are required,
this makes a perfect inexpensive but heartfelt gift.
Once you learn the basics, the possibilities are endless.
So many options are available for personalizing this serger project.
The front of the pillow cover could be embellished with embroidery (machine or hand),
the front could be made from a large quilt block,
or the front could be made from a pre-printed block.
Sew many possibilities!
This is a serger only class, no sewing machine needed.
If you are in the local area, here’s your invitation to join the fun:
WHEN:  Wednesday, October 27, 2017
TIME:  9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. @ the Ogden Wimmer’s Sewing & Vacuum
– OR –
             1:30 p.m. – 4 p.m. @ the Layton Wimmer’s Sewing & Vacuum
Please stop by the store to sign up so we know how many kits to make.
Thanks so much for reading my blog.
I love to hear from you, please leave a comment.

Autumn Burlap Serger Wreath

Happy Sunday, sewing friends!
Autumn is quickly approaching here in the U.S.,
that is, according to the calendar, not the weather
But before you know it, it will be Fall,
the weather will be cool and crisp,
and we will be celebrating God’s good harvest
What better way to welcome in the new season than with a beautiful wreath

I will begin teaching Baby Lock serger classes locally at both Wimmer’s locations
(Layton and Ogden) in September
This is the first project we will complete with our sergers

We will use either a 3 thread overlock stitch or the wave stitch,
which is exclusive to Baby Lock, to finish the edges of the burlap
(I used the wave stitch on my sample)

And we will make our own wire-edged ribbon from these lovely autumn colored fabrics.
After adding various floral picks and signage, we will go home with a gorgeous new wreath.
Are you beginning to plan for a seasonal change in decorating?
Share with us what is your favorite item to change up during the seasonal changes.
Thank you for spending some time with me today, friends.  Have a terrific week.
