Serging along...

 ... after I cleaned, oiled, and figured out 
proper threading and tension... 

I haven't used my overlock machine in years... 
Many, many years!!!
Once all that was sorted out I serged 4 receiving blankets for my future grand-baby...
Next up, I'll be trying out this diaper pattern...
Can someone tell me what this "PUL" on the Materials List is? 
Time is closing in on me! 
Much to do in preparation of this 
little bundle we are expecting... 8-)

Hope you are staying cool!

Good on you ... my overlocker is a bit the same. Haven't used it for years and can't thread it up :(

I didn't realize the new arrival is so close until I checked at the top of your blog ... very exciting times ahead.

I sold my serger last year; had been years since I had used it and wouldn't you know it, guess what I need? lol

Time is drawing close for you. How fun it will be!!!

The sergers are so great for the blankets. I use my serger all the time and love it.

The blankets are perfect. How exciting to be able to sew for your first grandchild. I'm guessing there will be many a quilt made for baby this year and years to come!

Isn't it amazing how much work goes into little ones - even if they aren't here yet.

Very cute blankets. I love your fabrics. You're going to love being a grandmother!

It's poly urethan laminated fabric. If you just Google PUL, you'll find a source for it. Great job on the receiving blankets.

I googled "sewing PUL" and it seems to be waterproof fabric. I also saw these hints to work with it: http://community.babycenter.com/post/a11722275/ugghh_sewing_pul

Good luck!

What a great project. Sorry no idea what PUL is - kind of weird. But aren't sergers fabulous for these kind of jobs! Love the fabric on the receiving blankets!

What joyous preparations are going on at your house. The receiving blakets are lovely.

Myra -- I have a yard or so of PUL fabric left over from making diapers for my daughter. I'd be glad to send it your way. E-mail me your address.

I used my serger for many nightgowns for twin-granddaughters, now we are serging shorts with matching t-shirts together; time flys-they
are turning 11 next month! (elastic-no zippers!)
