Why wait till the holiday season is upon us to start those holiday sewing projects? Get a head start by stitching up some lovely gift bags. This project is designed for the SINGER® Legacy™ SE300 and SE340 sewing and embroidery machines. However, if you don’t have an embroidery machine, you can skip the embroidery part of these instructions and construct the bag with your favorite fabric, starting at Step 14. Finished size of the bag is approximately 10” x 13”.
This easy serger project for kids had to be some of the most fun I have had sewing lately. While this is clearly a stunning serging project for your child or grandchild, I’ve included an adult and child version in the printable PDF pattern - just in case you’ve fallen in love with it for yourself. It’s summer, and nothing says summer like juicy berries and adorable hat projects! Also…. Raspberry Beret…. Get it ;)
This combination was too irresistible.
For those of you that do not have a serger, or are wondering what a serger is, let me give you a quick recap: sometimes called an overlock machine, my serger is the perfect companion to the sewing machine I already own. It sews a seam and seam finish at the same time, but also trims away excess seam allowance. A serger allows me to easily insert elastic band (like I did in this project), add ribbing to t-shirts and sweatshirts, or make neat rolled hems! What I love best, is that serger projects will make my projects look as professional as store-bought items. If you’re interested, you can check out Singer sergers right here on Singer.com. I have the SINGER® Professional™ 5 14T968DC Serger.
But let’s get back to the good part! The serger project! This cute raspberry beret is so easy to sew. It takes just a few minutes to put together and looks every bit the stylish accessory! So let’s get started.
