Embroidery machine

Embroidery machines are great for adding a decorative touch to your clothing or household linens, or personalize clothing and items for some great gifts that will cost you very little to make, but look like you spent a fortune. Here is a look at some of the best embroidery machines.

Some of the great things you can do with an embroidery machine

*Add a design and personalize some pajamas for kids

*T-shirts are really cheap when purchased blank. Add a design and personalize for kids. Also makes an inexpensive gift that looks like you spent a lot.

*Monogram towels, handkerchiefs, or shirts

*Add some flowers to your hand towels for an inexpensive hand towel.

*Add any insect to a bucket hat and personalize. This makes a great hat for the beach or some fun in the sun.

*Purchase a package of blank burp cloths and add a baby design and personalize. This makes a great baby shower gift, or welcome baby gift.

Christmas night gowns

The girls are all wearing handmade Christmas nightgowns that have a Christmas design and their name on the yoke. They proudly wore them for two years, before I had to make new nightgowns, because they outgrew them.

Personalized Santa hats

You can get Santa hats for one dollar at the dollar store. It takes only a few minutes to personalize a Santa hat and it makes for a really festive party when everybody is wearing a Santa hat with their name on it.

Tips for getting professional results with your personal embroidery machine

T-Shirts

T-shirt fabric is very flimsy and it is hard to embroider on. My embroidery machine chewed up many T-shirts, before I found an easy way that works every time. When you put your T-shirt into your embroidery hoop, put a piece of stabilizer under the T-shirt, and put another piece of stabilizer on top of the T-shirt. This will give you the added stability to get your design on your T-shirt, without your machine pulling the fabric and chewing up the T-shirt. Since I started using this method, I have never ruined a T-shirt again.

As an owner of this great machine myself, I love it!! This is what most of the reviews say, as well. The machine is easy to use and it has some great built in fonts, designs, and sewing stitches. With the connection to the internet you can add to your design library easily and at an affordable rate. A lot of sites will also offer some of their designs for free. Although, designs are fairly inexpensive. The embroidery area is only 4x4. This will do many projects for you, but eventually I will be upgrading to a machine that will give me a larger embroidery area.
