Just finished my attempt to make a serger cover......on the serger. I still think it looks like a bread box, LOL.
If I were to make another one, I would not use the heavy duty sew in interfacing anywhere but the side pockets. I also should have figured out how to make some flaring out in the pocket that will hold the foot pedal. It fits in but could use a tad more room. Maybe it does not really matter.
I was able to get the back panel placed in much better than I did the front. Even with not quite knowing if I was doing it right I got the pivot and chaining off done correctly. 2nd or front panel, the corners are a bit lumpy, bumpy looking. Also I should not have cut one half of the top opening shorter as in the end they don't overlap as I had hoped. They did overlap but I cut it 1 inch shorter----and should not have. I had put a covered button and button tab to close and open it to access the recessed handle carrying area. I like the idea but didn't calculate correctly, I guess.
Then the binding: SIGH I put it on with the regular sewing machine with a walking foot but I was using the old Singer and perhaps should have changed the needle position. My seam was wider than it normally is but thankfully I had cut the binding as I would have done for a quilt at 2 1/4 inch. I glued the back side up and attempted to sew the binding down by machine. Let's just say that was a little less than successful, LOL.
The little zip bag, above, is something that I made at guild as a make it-take it but I had been using it in my embroidery bag. I borrowed it from there for the serger accessories, till I accumulate more "toys" I am thinking or make another with a fabric match. I have ordered both a piping foot and the elastic tape foot but those won't take up much room, LOL.
It will work and I probably should not be pointing out my short comings when I am still using how to use this thing. I plan on making a cover for my friend, the Lefthanded quilter though she has given me the okay to do what ever my heart desires. See, I know she happens to have the same model I do as she suggested I check it out to begin with. Red and/0r yellow were her only request. I rolled the main fabric deal past her since it has to live at her house when done.
For now I am listening to the last of the Cardinal-Pirate game---looks like my Cards are going to sweep Pittsburgh and retain first place by 1.5 games but I don't want to count my chickens too soon. The rookie reliever already blew the shut out and 2 runs have been scored by the opposition. Cincinnati is sneaking up in the standings, no thanks to the Cards dropping three games to them recently.
And sew it goes-----
