Machine Embroidered Gifts

Following surgery last August, I couldn't walk and spent my time vegging on the sofa in front of the TV. For those couple of months of healing, I designed my holiday greeting cards and worked with my Brother SE-350 embroidery machine (works without a foot control).

I needed items to embroider and so I sent my husband to Target and he returned with several cotton tee shirts. Some shirts were for the adults in the family and several were for my grandson. I didn't get around to using many of them and the smaller ones meant for my grandson were a bit large at the time. My grandson has grown a lot since last summer, so I decided to embroider those shirts. Since the movie "Cars" is his all time favorite movie, I embroidered trucks and a fire engine. Ok, so I just found out the shirts are still large on him...oh well he will wear them eventually!

Poor little guy, so tired after a full day of touring St. Augustine! The shirt will do just fine in another year or so!
I used the larger adult shirts for my tennis coach son's birthday.

Proud tennis pro son! If you are looking for a tennis coach in Palm Coast, Fl. let me know!

These embroidered designs come from the Embroidery Library on line. They have quality and a great variety of wonderful designs to choose from.
