In my opinion, a regular sewing machine is not the best option for fabric edging. Especially if you are doing a lot of projects. If you are not doing just for a hobby, but get paid for this, then better consider buying an overlocker machine with a regular one. It does this kind of work faster and more accurately, which will help you to save a lot of time and finish your projects more efficiently. You can search more about what is an overlocker. As a mother of 4 kids that have different plays at school and need new costumes, I need to do some things faster and don’t spend the whole day on it. Especially when they love to inform the night before they need a new costume.
