Excited to show

I got a new embroidery machine for Christmas and just lately got a chance to really start playing with it. I've been having a lot of fun!

I've made a few things for my son:




A shirt (and some skirts not posted) for my DD:


And some gifts for friends:






I hope to make more things this week!

Nice work! I only just started playing with my embroidery machine recently too. What backings do you use? (Specifically on the tee shirts, I am sorta feeling intimidated by all the stabilizers and I know tees tend to pull out of shape easily on the hoop)

Thanks for the positive comments mamas!

After a lot of reading and advice, I use sulky cut away stabilizer for t-shirts. It works a lot better than the tear away. You could use a fusible one too I would imagine I just haven't yet.

On my burp cloths, just use tear away on the pieces and no backing on the burp cloth itself. I have some fusible stabilizer that I'm going to attempt to use with embroidering grosgrain ribbon.

Beautiful job. I am envious. I have wanted an embroidery machine for years. I don't have the patience to do hand embroidery.
