I'd like to make my own wipes, and I'd love to serge the edges (so they hopefully won't curl) but I don't have a surger. Is there anyway I can do this? I read something about doing a faux serge with an overlock stitch - will that work?

Course I don't even know what that is, but I'm hoping my mom will!
She has a Pfaff sewing machine, if that makes a difference.

TIA!

i either turn and topstitch or try to use my machine like a serger.

I make mine about 8 x 8 (i measured the size of my hand extended and added a bit). I have made some from old towels (if you do cut up old towels do it outside it is a lint-y project!). I also have some flannel/flannel. Honestly the best ones I have have a flannel on one side and something like an old towel or velour on the other. The washcloth-y type side is great for grabbing poop (sorry if TMI) and then I like the flannel for cleaning up the job).

Flannel and flannel is great for blowing noses and wiping up spit up too.
