My Sweet, Sweet Serger

I've lusted after a serger almost as long as I've been sewing. If you don't know what a serger (or an overlock machine) is, it's a type of sewing machine that trims the seam and wraps it in a complicated web of thread to keep it from fraying and for a more professional looking finish. And depending on your machine, it can also do different types of hems. To learn more about sergers, take a quick peek here.

Baby Girl in her natural habitat/Beautiful serged seam (which you can't really see 'cause it's white on white but trust me, it's beautiful!)

After much research and deliberation, I chose the Brother 1034D as the newest member of the Sew Sew Funky family.  It was reasonably priced and all the reviews I found on Amazon and Pattern Review were positive.  Even Mimi G listed it as a solid, reliable machine. I was a bit intimidated by the complicated look of it, but it's actually super easy to thread.  There's step by step instructions in the owner's manual and there are color coded guides on the machine itself.  I love, love, love my new serger and can't wait to really put her to work!

Keep It Funky!
