Dirt Bags

The best use (in my opinion) for vinyl sign material:
Dirt bags.
I'm doing some digging under my house and hauling the dirt out with these. Vinyl courtesy of the public library.
I put some some dump straps in the bottom seams, ignoring my own advice about putting straps in seams...naturally they're ripping out. I still need to go at 'em with the sewing awl...

Serger Stitch Test

Here're some stitch tests with my 654DE. I still haven't bought any overlock thread, so I'm using embroidery thread.

Red: 1000d Cordura. Brown: #10 waxy cotton. Black: #8 cotton duck (dry).
