Embroidery

Remember how my Mother-in-law gave me an awesome new sewing machine for my birthday??  Well, it came with an embroidery attachment that I didn't have time to open until last weekend.  My friend Kelly had bought t-shirts for Audrey and her daughter Greta, so I decided to embroider the girls' names on them.

I had to read the manual to figure out how to use the machine.  It's complicated!  After figuring it out, I got to work.



Here is Greta's finished shirt.  I wish I would have tilted the name more, so it didn't go into the rainbow.  But for my first try, it's not too bad.


Audrey's turned out a little better.

I was really excited about it.

Then I turned it over.  Doh!

So I busted out the seam ripper.

And proceeded to stab my finger and bleed all over Audrey's new shirt.
I'm planning on doing more practicing.  If you have any things you'd like embroidered, I'll gladly do it for you!  You'll just need to purchase the thread, since I don't have too many colors.  Let me know if you are interested! :)
