Just bought an embroidery machine, here is the link to the original
Here is my little elephant! (hopefully)
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Used two paper towels as stabilizer, worked pretty good! The feet and tusks got a little misaligned I think. I need better scissors too. It is about the size of a quarter, not that that really helps people from outside the USA. I think it is pretty cute. I plan on using it on something for my soon to be niece, due date May 2. I really need to finish her quilt too. Too bad I have a new distraction.
I never would have thought of using paper towels as a stabilizer. I have just bought a brother embroidery machine but haven't had time to use it yet.:thumbdown: to busy cleaning up all the dust and soot that came into my craft room when they cleared the house away. I had planned on making a start today but after seeing all the mess I decided it would be better to get cleaned up first so it wouldn't get into my new machines. I have told DH to tell me next time he is going to make dust so I can cover everything in sheets.
The paper towels were suggested by a lady on the other thread, coffee filters and used dryer sheets were also suggested at least for practice. I can sympathize litacats, I'm so glad I didn't have to wait until tomorrow! Hope you get to use your machine soon. I bought a used Brother 270D. I think I got a good deal, lots of thread was included. Thanks for the compliments!
Congratulations!! You have just started on a fun filled journey. Have lots of fun.
