Hobby sewer as I am, I did sew many years without it. But the serger is the base that you need to have especially if you like to sew with knits. When I finally buy one I use it for almost all my stuff that I make. The best machine ever and it is not important what brand you have, just the fact that you have it is enough. This is not a story how I dream of having it and what kind is better then other. It is just a simple and short story of how to finish the serger ends, or at least how I do them.
With the ordinary sewing this part is simple. All you need to do is go back and then sew a few stitches on the same place. Simple.
First is good if I use a polyester thread and if I could found the lighter and that is not simple because I don’t smoke and usually I forgot when I put it last time, so the magic think is never close to my hands. This is a little bit smelly methods but it worked, I just never know how good the end will be.
My new method is made with a crochet hook. It is not so slow as maybe looks like when you do the first time, it is more like therapeutic. Yes, you need to take a moment for closure all the seams. But if you know the right process of your work usually all the sewing’s have just a few closures that you need to do.
