a super cool serger tip
Here's an easy way to keep your serger seams from fraying or unraveling. Whether you're sewing with knit fabric and want to leave the bottom un-hemmed, or just finishing some seams on some woven cotton, this will work for both scenarios.
First, you'll need to make sure to leave a few inches of extra thread when you finish a seam. Then thread a large yarn needle with the thread chain. You'll need a big ol needle so that you can get the thread through easily.
Next thread the needle back through the stitches like so, for about an inch or two.
Pull the thread chain through, then clip off the extra. Tada! Now they will stay put. No fraying. Yippee! (I really am that excited about this!)
More shirts coming soon!
