Last Thursday evening I embroidered my first garment.

I told my daughter to pick something she didn’t mind tossing out if the machine embroidery didn’t turn out great. I’m still new to machine embroidery.  She chose a t-shirt… smart girl! She decided  on a cute rag doll from Urban Threads. As mentioned in yesterdays post, I didn’t follow the thread recommendations. My daughter chose her own colors for the Urban Threads design. The design cost $3.00. I plan to use it on a lot of different items.

Pressing the green circle starts the machine embroidery function on my Brother SE-400. The only thing left to do was to monitor the embroidery machine, as it created the embroidered design. Even though the machine does all the work, it’s smart to keep a watchful eye on it so nothing  bad happens.

I really love my Brother SE-400.  The maximum design it will embroider is 4×4, so if you want to embroider a larger design, you’ll have to look for another machine.

It took about forty minutes to complete the design.

And it turned out perfect. A simple but creative way to dress up a plain t-shirt.
