Sergers have captivated the sewing world. By seaming and overcasting at once and twice as fast as a conventional sewing machine, sergers are fast and fun. At first, home sewers used the handy machines for simple edge or seam-finishing. But people wanted more. Two experts quickly recognized the creative potential of sergers. Now you can benefit from their clever talents. In this book, Tammy Young and Naomi Baker have designed and developed a multitude of serger-made kitchen and picnic items, birthday presents, holiday embellishments, travel bags, baby shower items, and home decorations. In the process of making these projects you will learn some of the latest serger techniques: serged lace and serged wires, serged scalloped edges, double-rolled edge braid and binding, serged padded paper, mock hemstitching, serger quilting, serged piping and couching, and more. Each chapter contains projects of varying difficulty, starting with the easiest and fastest and proceeding to more difficult and time-consuming projects. Color pages showcase the stunning results.
