WWYD Re: NB snap-in soakers? Should I get a serger?

So, I'm working on my nb fitteds using the free DD pattern. I've made a few different types of inserts in the past but didn't really like any of them. I like the 2 petal style of the muttaqins diapers, with the snaps on the bottom petal. I've tried a faux serge on my machine and it just looks sloppy! I don't have a serger and honestly I'm scared to get one! I know someone with a serger I could borrow, though. I don't feel entirely comfortable with that because I don't know her very well. I've also considered the idea of buying inserts and just adding snaps to them. This will cost more but save me time. And the last option is to buy a serger and learn how to use it! That's the scariest option, lol! I could use it for MC, which I hate making T&T. What else do you do with it??? Serged fitteds would probably be much quicker than t&t, right???

Dh has given his blessing for a serger, lol! Should I just go for it?! Practice on one first? What else can I use it for?
