Serger Club: November/December 2021
Woven Serger PillowBasket
Let’s get crafty with Kraft-tex! This unique material is used to make a fun woven basket. You will use a 3-thread overlock stitch, some decorative thread and hot glue for a quick-finish project. Additionally, learn how to make serger cording using a 3-thread rolled hem to add a bit of bling. You will even get some tips on how to make wire-edged ribbon.
