Make-Shift Serge Stitch --Without a Serger-- {Tips-N-Tricks Tuesday}

   Ever have anyone tell you "oh you can't sew that because you need a serger sewing machine"? Well good, that makes the two of us. While the advice might be good to heed sometimes, other times you can get away with a cheaper route. It does take twice the amount of time and isn't as strong, but someone with even a simpler machine can do it.

   Some of you probably already know this and do this - but for those who don't, look at the picture above. First do a straight stitch to tack it in place, then go over it with a zig-zag stitch.

   Like I said, it takes twice as long and isn't as strong, but if you don't have a couple extra hundred dollars for another sewing machine, you should consider it.
