I am back into the swing of machine embroidery and have picked up some useful tips over on a Facebook page dedicated to all things machine embroidery. I usually don't have alot of success with t-shirts but thanks to some useful ideas (like using water dissolving stabliser over the top), the embroideries have worked out better and there have been less mishaps. K's tie however was positioned too far at the top of the shirt so the machine didn't like doing the final stitching over all the bulk. Next time I'll remember to position it a bit lower. J's turned out really well and I love the design. K picked the snowman.
