That’s so great to hear!
You definitely don’t need a serger. :] I went 9 years of my life not even knowing they existed, haha. The main thing that sergers are used for is speed (and they work really well with knit fabric).
A sewing machine is plenty strong enough for clothing projects. And to be honest, “couture” sewing almost never uses a serger. Which shows that you can get good quality work by hand, machine or serger. :D
If you want to acheive a similar finish as a serger using a normal sewing machine, you can do both a zigzag stitch and a straight stitch on the same seam (I included a drawing below). The zigzag will help prevent fraying like a serger, and the straight stitch gives the seam extra strength.
Ahh I know, I’ve been talking about the tutorial I was making for awhile now. Truth is, now that school started again that tutorial’s been put on hold for a little. :o
But here is the link I’ve been referring people to -> Screen Printing: Cheap, Dirty, and at Home. :] It’s the most cost-efficient, though not the most “correct” or professional, method for people who want to learn the very basics of screenprinting.
I think online people call it two-tone hair (not exactly sure)? I bleached and dyed the colored portion of my hair, and the brown hair is actually my natural hair color. You might be able to ask her to dye and/or bleach one section and either leave the other section or dye that too.
Hope that helps somewhat~
Aw thank you! :]
I think one reason that my hair isn’t too damaged is because its naturally quite oily, to the point where I don’t really feel comfortable unless I wash it every morning (though once in a great while I’ll try not to). I use normal Herbal Essences shampoo and a lot of Garnier’s Triple Nutrition conditioner. Once in awhile I’ll also spray my hair with the Triple Nutrition Nutrient Spray at night~
Yes of course! I love making tutorials and I’ve been making them pretty regularly for awhile now. c; You can view all the tutorials I’ve made so far here. Also if anyone has any tutorial requests, I’d love to hear them! I can’t promise that I will be able to make any or all of them, but I’ll definitely try to do some. :]]
