DIY Cloth Pad - Part 10 (Turn and top Stitch)

I sewed these 2 cloth pads for friends.  

Bought this Flannel print in Kamdar Sunway.   The material is slightly thicker than what I had bought locally before.
I normally turned & top stitched my cloth pads because I did not have a good serger at home.  My side seam is usually quite small and making it hard to close the opening left for the turn.   I found a technique to make it easier...  have a bigger seam for the opening.. see the left side of the wing.   I tried and it really helps!  
Recently, I bought a serger, Brother 3034D.   This cloth pad, I tried to serge the sides, rather than turn and top stitch.   I need  to practise more, not very nice finishing.    I have to hide the cutting knife to avoid the curves being cut...
Bye now..
