    I always make the younger Grandchildren machine embroidered shirts for holidays, etc.
    Here are the four that I've gotten done today. :lol: I'm pretty pleased with them. Have three more to do, five if the older ones are interested; have to play that by ear :) :)

    Thank you all for your great comments. My favorite part of making these is seeing them wearing them. :lol:
    Still I have more to make and will post them as I get them done this coming week.
    Again, thanks for all the kind words--such an encouraging QB. :lol:

    I just love them!!! What type of stabilizer and thread did you use? I am slowly learning to use my machine embroidery module, and would love to do shirts. Is it hard and do you hoop? Any hints would be greatly appreciated. I want to do some hand towels for my daughter for Christmas, but am afraid to start :shock:

    Thanks.
    Nursie76 - I'm by no means an expert but I use 2 layers of soft n sheer (Sulky) cut-away permanent stabilizer which I hoop. Then I make my marks and glue to the top of the hoop. With T-Shirts I pin the 4 corners too so it's not too stretched out, but holds. I use mostly rayon embroidery threads...have an assortment so I mix and match. If you are doing towels I recommend you hoop your stabilizer, then add the towel to the top like I do with the shirts, but add a layer of wash away stabilizer to the top...something to do with the terry cotton on the towels...it'll wash out after you're done.
    I made towels last year and they were a HUGE hit :)
    Would love to see when you're done.
