Sewing/serger finishes

I was a crafty sewing gal today! First, I made a large American Flag zippered bag with an aida insert:

And second, I made this cool thing that my serger sits on and has a bag attached by Velcro to collect orts and scraps:

I did most of the work on the zippered bag the other day but put some finishing touches on it tonight. The serger bag I started last night but spent most of the afternoon working on. I even learned how to make "box(ed) corners"! I do plan to make a similar bag/mat to fit the dimensions of my sewing machine.

Thanks for looking! Hope everyone is having a great week. I plan on posting more finishes Friday...stay tuned!

Very nice ort bag, and it is amazing how much really falls when you serge. I have a clear plastic liner for mine so the threads and fabric scraps do not stick to the inside of the catcher.
Be always in stitches.

Those area great finishes. I could use one of those bags for my serger! I usually just put the waste basket nearby! Not too efficient!!
