Default FOE headbands using a Serger

I have borrowed an Overlocker sewing machine ( I think you guys in the US call it a Serger) to do the edges on some cloth nappies. Whilst I was playing I used it to sew together a FOE headband to test it out. I'm not sure if it will hold well though.

Do any of you sew your FOE headbands this way????

Would be so much quicker than gluing.

Thanks

I hand sew mine...which would be slower then gluing I'm sure. But I've never had any problems with them not holding. I've never tried machine sewing though.....

I feel like serging it would leave an uncomfortable bump. I like the idea but honestly I just glue mine. I used to sew and glue but it really isn't needed if you have a good glue gun.
