Welcome to my sewing blog! I'll be showing photos and talking about some of the sewing and serger projects I teach at Austin's Sewing Center, at the local public library, at other locations, or have made just for my own enjoyment. God has blessed me with the gift of sewing and I love to share it with everyone. Hopefully, you will be blessed by what you see and read here! Thank you for visiting.

Tailored Boys Serger Bib
This project has been a real challenge, that is, as far as the binding goes! The bib has gone together really well up to the binding. The instructions say to use the binder attachment to attach the binding in one step. Apparently, it means a double-fold binder. Since I only have a single-fold binder attachment, I have decided to change direction: to use my 3/4" bias binding pressing tool to make a separate binding, instead of using the attachment on my serger. Then, attach the binding using the cover stitch. After realizing the single-fold binding will be left with a raw edge that will have to be trimmed off, I didn't think that would be a finished-looking edge. When I finish the bib with the newly made double-fold binding, I'll post a photo of it here. This class is scheduled for January 4, at Austin's Sewing Center.
