Fleece Neck Pillow from Sew4Home

Well, it has been a rough week. My serger is out for repairs. It's 23 years old so I'm not sure if it can even be repaired anymore. I bought it when my oldest daughter was 9 months old because I thought it would speed up my sewing. And it did!! So maybe it is just time to buy a new one. Any suggestions?

I went to my monthly ASG meeting today and we made these cute little neck pillows - no serger required! This is one of the many free projects from Sew4Home, one of my favorite websites for easy projects with clearly written instructions. The fleece is left over from a pajama pant project that I made for some of the U of L fans in my family. The ribbons on the ends came on a purchased blanket. I saved them because I save everything related to sewing that I can use again. What a fun project this is!

I'm off to find more projects that I can make without a serger.  Any ideas???


  1. The only serger I've ever used is my Babylock. They've since updated the model, but mine is the 8 thread version with a coverstitch. I really like it a lot, and would recommend it, but I've nothing to compare it to either. It threads easily, isn't particularly temperamental, and makes a nice, balanced stitch.

    I've been meaning to make some neck pillows, thanks for the memory jog!

    1. I've heard good things about the Babylock but I have never tried one out. I'd probably be okay with a 4 thread. The jet air threading would be nice too!
