A Dream Came True, I'm In Sewing Heaven

At last, my own serger! :)

I received many requests for custom made clothing but dare not agree, for the very fact that I did not have a serger. Children's garment especially need to be finished professionally for it to last. So I did some soul searching, or shall I say "pocket digging", and found THE ONE. Well, decision was mainly made on the one that fits my budget, which is of course, very little with all my other addiction to support :P

Brother 3034D Lock, my dream just came true! Easy threading too! Can't wait for the weekend to play with her :)

Don't they look handsome together? I need to find a sturdier table though, the weight of these two simply too much for such a small table lol

And this one, Evelyn Hobo for a lovely customer, Dyla. Fabric is Fashionista Lorenza in Aubergine by Alexander Henry. I owe her another bag, I'm gonna try and finish this weekend.

Cheers to sewing on and creating more ladies, have a great day! :D

  15. welcole in sewing heaven :-)
    I do have the same serger, and I just do not know how was the life before her :-)
    the only thing I regret is that it does not sew these special seams overlock for the tee-shirts, or I did not find how to!

  16. Evelyne - Thanks Evelyne! Really? The same ya? I guess it gives us more "confidence" :D

    Peach Rainbow - thanks my friend! :)

    tic@ - thank you for visiting and commenting! :) Not sure about the special seams, but the shop assistant told me 4 threads for t-shirts n 3 threads for other fabrics, so far I've only used 3 threads :)

  17. congrats... congrats... makin panjang ler langkah pas ni.. :D

  18. congrate ..kak zura..
    lepas ni makin kencangla tempahan ye..hihi
    ..leh tau x bape rm new serger tu?

  19. zura.. sama la serger kita.. cuma masa aje masih mencemburui.. susah nak belek lama2.. geram aje

  20. i tell you, once you serge, you dont know how come you sewed so long without one..hahaha

  21. tahniah! I u deserved it because you do sew beautiful things..i owned a serger/overlocker...well more than a decade ago but I don't sew much...I used it more for the linen I cross stitched on and finishing task...that's about it..and sometimes for the curtains...most of the time it just tuck away in the cupboard...what a waste!! LOL

  22. Zura beli kat mana serger. am so green with envy...

  23. congrats! happy serging :D
