Love to serge but have a hard time with the serger tails? Follow these next couple steps from Threads magazine to have perfectly neat and tidy serger seams! View the original article.

You'll need a serger, thread, scissors and fray preventer (optional).

Jeanette Schlaeger of Charleston, Tennessee, shares an easy way to more neatly finish the ends of a serged seam, corner, or edge:

  1. Cut the thread tail to about 2 inches.

  2. Gently pull the tail, so two threads release a bit and the entire tail loosens.

  3. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle and pull it through the serger stitching; trim any excess, and apply fray preventer if desired.

By loosening the tail threads, you reduce bulk for a cleaner finished seam end. That's it!
