Yesterday I had an appointment at my favorite quilting store for a lesson with my embroidery machine. Up to this point, I have been making aprons with it, piecing a quilt together, and using some of it's fancy stitches. Venturing into the embroidery feature has been a bit daunting. So, after a 2 1/2 hour lesson I was ready to start....the only problem was....no time left in the day to practice. I had an appointment at the hair salon for a color touch up and ended up with a polka dot (fixing it took a little extra time!)
I made up my mind that this morning I would take a little time and practice what I learned. I have several sweatshirts that my stepmom had given to me to cover up an old logo. Here are my first attempts in transforming her shirts.....not the best, not the worst.....just a starting place. Hopefully by the time I finish the rest of the shirts I will get a little more adept in placement.
This is how the shirt started out.
This is my first attempt.....off just a bit.
And another try....still off.....oh well, back to the drawing board. Still, all in all it was great practice with the machine.....boy am I going to love this feature!
