This is the Singer Futura XL400 hooked up to my old laptop that has the stitch designs in it.
It has been a while since I did any machine embroidery, so I warmed up with this pretty rose design.
Yellow roses are my favorite! I'll save this for something!
The green summer shirt I made last month needed a little flair.
I put a pretty, curly flourish on the back.
I chose tone on tone colors so it would be subtle.
Next, on the front I stitched down a flower blossom.
More subtlety on the left shoulder area.
I used a thin, water soluble stabilizer behind the fabric.It's a little wrinkly but pressing may help it flatten out.
And last, a bigger floral spray design for the front.
No wrinkles here!
I chose to place this larger design by the waist where there was more space for it.
Aside from placement tweaks, I am happy with the results! I'll have to wear my newly decorated top on the next hot day this week!
Any embroidery fans out there! What machine do you have?
