So there’s something I’ve wanted for my sewing machine for a LONG time. Like, every birthday and Christmas I give the idea to my husband to see if this will be the year. So, this weekend, I just decided to take matters into my own hands. It’s not pretty, but it works. After I finished it, hubby said he would make me “a cool one.” and I said I didn’t care cuz I just wanted one that works. So what was it you ask? Well, let’s say you’re like me, and don’t want to buy little spools of white thread, so you get the serger cone. And this is how it sits on the machine.
And let’s say you got lectured the last time you got your machine serviced by the guy who did it that it ruins tension, and doesn’t make a nice stitch.
So, I made my serger cone holder thing. Technical term. Really, Google it. Anyway, I got me a wire hanger No more wire hangers! And I measured how tall I wanted it on my machine and snipped it with wire cutters.
I did mine as tall as the spool holder there. Give or take. Then, cut it so you’ve got about 2 inches extra on the other end. Like so.
And then form a loop shape. Like so.
Then, get a piece of scrap wood. Mine was about 3/4” wide, and about 3”x4”. Drill some holes in it for your hanger and dowel.
What’s that? You don’t have a dowel? I didn’t either. Ready for it?
Oh, isn’t it pretty? Like I said, it’s totally utilitarian. I don’t care. I may paint it just because I can. It works.
Totally awesome pencil sticking out.
See? A lovely back shot of my machine.
Oh, it works! Don’t mind my cluttered table. I’m working on 30 projects in my head, so I should have some cool stuff soon. I’ll be back Wednesday with a fun post! Want a sneak peek? Here ya go!
