Blending Colors of Serger Thread
Does anyone else do this? I have many times.
Serger thread comes in limited colors and not always close to matching many fabric colors. I buy general purpose thread that matches the fabric and use it in the general construction of the garment. Then, to clean finish the seams I use two spools of “close enough” colors in serger thread and the spool and bobbin (or buy two spools and use instead of the bobbin) of the general purpose thread. The general purpose thread goes in the upper looper and the left-handed needle. The serger thread goes in the lower looper and the right-handed needle.
Sew a test first to see if the tension needs to be loosened at bit for the general purpose thread.
