So, for Valentine’s Day, I decided I wanted to make a gift that appropriately conveyed the message, “I love you, but not enough to change my serger threads.” So I decided to make a bunch of travel bags for our groups lightsabers out of leftover fabric from skating costumes. Certainly not a high budget endeavor here, but enough effort such that our group’s hilts won’t be scuffing each other up during transport – we give them enough rough treatment in battle!
Construction was super simple – I folded an edge over and used my coverstitch machine to keep it down, then I serged the sides closed. I couldn’t be bothered to change threads, especially since I’ll need white for my next sudoku item!
We usually take the blades out before storing the hilts – hopefully this will prevent a lot of the dings and scratches that happen when the hilts roll around in the bag!
Oh, and I made some gluten-free almond flour scones too! Because maybe I like people a bit more than my lack of attention to serger thread detail would suggest. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
