Serged Ends – 230807

Filed under: Sewing — xstitcherzo @ 11:39 am

Imagine finally at 1:30am on Wednesday night or Thursday morning, I finally get my much needed sleep although I would have preferred to be awake. On Monday night, I was looking for that huge threads that you sticked at the back of overlock…don’t know what is the proper name for it. But couldn’t find them

So last night…I went digging. Found it and brought in the spare wooden dining table into my room. Yes, you read it correctly…dining table in common bedroom. On the round dining table….now..sits my sewing machine and the overlock machine Along with 2 boxes of fabrics. And I sit on my bed to sew…hehehe…good isn’t it…I would see the 2 of them…the moment I wake up in the morning.

The overlock threads were given to my mum from our 14th storey neighbour. I had kept it for years. That one day finally came.

My first serged ends…woohoo. I have no idea that it is so simple and very fast too. It went like a breeze and I’m done. 3 threads to serge and 4 threads to serge and stitch. I think 4 threads is better as I can serged both ends of 2 fabrics plus stitch closed at same time. My trial piece as I don’t want to damage any fabric before I learn how to serged correctly.



  1. Congratulation !!! YOu made it !!! I dream to have one of those for my fabrics !!!
