Which do you prefer using on bags, the serger or the sewing machine?

I use both, depending upon the part of the bag I am using and how much seam allowance I want to have left, type and weight of fabric I am using, and how much control I want.  Sergers are only good for seams unless you have a cover stitch feature.  Sewing machines can be easier in tight spaces. When I need a lot of control, I like the sewing machine (mainly because if I make a mistake I have not nicked the fabric).  There is also more room  to the right of the needle, leaving more space for fabric manipulation on that side of the needle.

Thanks, I know some people are whizzes on sergers and can do all kinds of fancy things but I always seem to end up doing stuff on my machine.
I always worry that the serger stiching is not going to be strong enough Undecided
