I just started sewing and I'm planning on starting a small home based business (mostly kids stuff for now but I may branch out to stuff for adults too) Anyways I have a pretty decent sewing machine but I keep reading about sergers...how important do you all think it would be to get one? I really hate the look of unfinished seams but good gawd they are pricey! And does anyone have a suggestion for a good one?
OK I finally have pictures to share! Mattea was going to be Pebbles from the Flinstones for Halloween but my sewing maching crapped out on me the night before...and of course I waited till the last minute so I didn't have time to fix it lol! So I whipped up a little fairy costume! It's kind of hard to see detail in the pictures but you get the idea...I made the tutu using the tutorial from here, and I sewed on some fake flowers and petals, and hot glued some swaroski crystals on it...I also sprayed some silver fabric spray paint over it so it was nice and shimmery not to toot my own horn but the pictures really don't do it justice, I LOVE how it came out, and it was remarkably easy! It only took about an hour to make...then I took one of the leftover flowers, 2 of the petals and 2 leaves, sprayed those with the fabric paint as well, and glued it to a barrette...I also made those legwarmers out of a pair of tube socks! The wings I actually had laying around and I just tied ribbons to them because it came with elastic that was too big, and was ugly...so anyways, here's how it came out:
I have some close ups of the actual costume but I can't get those to upload for some reason...I'll try to update it later
First of all, hi! My name is Rebecca, and I'm a proud single momma to Mattea who is 9 months old I've just started sewing and crafting and I'm now hopelessly addicted! I'm having trouble finding one particular pattern though, and hoping maybe you all can help!
