Serged Minky Washcloths + Perfect Serger Settings for Serging Minky

My twin asked me to make some minky washcloths for her friend that is having their first child.  In the past I made several of these for my twin to use on my nephew and nieces.  They love them.  The kids use them for every bath and in the morning to wet wipe their faces.  The ones I made in the past were not made with a serger.  I did sew an "X" across the middle but zigzagged the edges then trimmed.  Using my serger to make these was so easy and made them look so much better.

 Being that the baby is a boy, I decided to go with bright primary colors.  The circle minky on the right were scraps from my nephew's minky blanket, therefore they are smaller.  The larger ones are right at 6" square.  Smaller ones are like 5".

FOR FINISHING OFF THE SERGER ENDS, SEE MY TUTORIAL HERE.

I must admit that I did have a little trouble at the beginning when I was practicing with some minky scraps.  I couldn't find anything online talking about the perfect serger settings for minky fabric.  So here I am sharing a sewing tip with you!  Granted my machine is a Brother 1034D but I think these settings would be pretty universal within a smidget or so.

I HOPE THIS HAS HELPED!

  3. pura nutricao regular stretches will help you stay more flexible than an average person. To achieve the next step, use a foam roller or a massage ball on the tight points of the body. This releases the fascia, a connective tissue that supports the muscle, relieving tense stitches and allowing better flexibility.
