I REALLY need to get my rear in gear and make Kaiden's new inserts, his hemp ones are SO BAD, they are absolutely shredded! I'm not even sure I can salvage any of them, they are that bad . . . at least they are still super absorbant! I don't have a serger and I don't want to turn & topstitch. When I made the hemp inserts, I just did a straight stitch about 1/4" in from the edge and then cut off the raggy edges after a few washes.

If I remember right Susie, you were saying I could do the stitch near or at the edge and you can get the serger look? is there a stitch you prefer? I have a bunch of "decorative" stitches to choose from and I *think* I know which would work, looks kind of like a blanket stitch, but wanted your input before I start.

And I had a thought . . . my bamboo fitted + your bamboo inserts = "RoseChild" diaper!

I think she mentioned there was a foot that did that..

Edit: I just read she said the foot was crap..
I'll answer anyways. Before I had a serger I used the zig zag stitch and turned down the stitch length ( i think it is that one, it squishes the stitch more. It works for what it was meant to do, prevent Fraying... This was on the suggestion of my sewing teacher (I was a geek, what 11 year old makes her own clothes and goes to private sewing lessons every week)

The belief that there is only one truth and that oneself is in possession of it seems to me the
