Go back-to-school in style with this quick and easy pencil case made almost entirely out of... that’s right - measuring tape!
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.

Make a pair of these fun and personalized slippers for your favorite mom – she's sure to love them! Customize them using her favorite colors or printed fabrics, and for an extra special touch embroider her initials across the top. The custom-sized sole is cushy and soft thanks to In-R-FormTM and fusible fleece, and everything is neatly finished with bias tape.
This interchangeable band, created with the SINGER® FUTURA™ endless hoop, has the look of hand-stitched cross stitching. If desired, you can make additional bands with different endless hoop embroidery to transform your pillow with a new look that fits the changing seasons.
Get creative with decorative stitches and assorted ribbons! This unique runner can be made in any length or width you want. Though this project incorporates the Stitch Elongation function, a feature on many electronic sewing machines, you can use decorative stitches from any SINGER sewing machine to embellish the ribbons.
This easy-to-make clutch features cover stitching on the flap to attach the ribbon detail. Though the cover stitch most often used for hemming, it can also be used for decorative embellishment. Try it with contrasting thread colors for an even more dramatic effect
Freshen up your space with this chevron-striped pillow cover. First, finish the exposed edges of the fabric strips with your SINGER® serger, providing a textured appearance. Then use your SINGER® sewing machine to apply them to the pillow front. Mix fabric patterns and prints to express your own style!
Use a single letter and the Repeat Design function built into the Futura®software, to repeat the letter into a new design layout. You can repeat many different types of designs or letters to create interesting textures on fabrics. For this project, the embroidery design layout was created as a Multi-hoop design, sewn in 4 hoopings.
