How My Life Would Be Better With a Serger

Sew Mama Sew is hosting a serger giveaway and I have to give it a shot!!!

Many of you know that I have recently become passionate about sewing.  There is just something so satisfying about creating homemade items on your sewing machine.  I especially love making handmade items and clothing for Noodlebug.  I have discovered when making clothes and knit items that simply using a zig-zag stitch for finishing does not give one the same effect that a serger would.  I'm so tired of seeing unpleasant looking raw edges and it would certainly help with hemming and generally piecing fabric together.  A serger would also be great for adding embellishments to my projects.  As my sewing skills improve, I would love to be able to take my projects to the next level with a serger so they don't look so unfinished and amateur-ish.  Since it is a luxury item, it would really make my day to win one!!!

I cannot have Noodlebug wandering around in homemade clothes with unfinished edges!! What would the other (crafty) moms say?  I can hear it now....."Poor Noodlebug's mom.  She works full-time and doesn't even have the time or resources to properly finish her child's clothing. Tsk tsk."

Hey there! Did you finish the Anda dress? I want to see it when you're done.

I got this serger and I think I got a lemon, I had to return it. The $$ got "reallocated" and I never got a replacement. I want one too!!!

What a great entry for the serger! Funny!

I have a serger and haven't used it for awhile. you've inspired me to bring it out again for some projects for our new house.
