DIY Cloth Pad - Part 10 (Turn and top Stitch)

I sewed these 2 cloth pads for friends.  

Bought this Flannel print in Kamdar Sunway.   The material is slightly thicker than what I had bought locally before.
I normally turned & top stitched my cloth pads because I did not have a good serger at home.  My side seam is usually quite small and making it hard to close the opening left for the turn.   I found a technique to make it easier...  have a bigger seam for the opening.. see the left side of the wing.   I tried and it really helps!  
Recently, I bought a serger, Brother 3034D.   This cloth pad, I tried to serge the sides, rather than turn and top stitch.   I need  to practise more, not very nice finishing.    I have to hide the cutting knife to avoid the curves being cut...
Bye now..

Mila: Anic, I think turn n top stitch is much more reliable in long run, neat also. if using serger, after several wash benangnya terkeluar. but maybe because of I am not that "pandai" using my serger

Thanks Vintage Coconut.. :)

Hi Mila, thanks for sharing your experience. I too think that turn & top stitch is more lasting.. the serging is so tempting though as it is quicker to complete a pad. :) i saw the one serged by expert like Lynn looks really good...

Agreed with you.. the one sewed by Lynn look neat n cantik.. maybe she practice a lot. Satu lagi, u need to turn the cutter off. but after several time tried, I dont wanna to think about using serger anymore hahha putus asa..
