Nautical Themed Embroidery- Finished Product

One of my first projects with our new embroidery machine was for Jen's baby shower. I wanted to keep it simple and I know she has a nautical theme going for baby Michael so I took out to find a design I liked.  I went with an anchor. No gift is complete without a few things to go with it so we choose to do a onesie and 2 burp cloths. You might recognize the fabric, I got it on our trip to premier prints. Wait until you see some of the new patriotic shirts I am doing for the upcoming Memorial day, July 4th and Labor day holidays with appliques. So cute!

Here is the happy mom-to-be opening her gift.  We can't wait for baby Michael to arrive in a few short months!

Is your new machine fairly easy to use? I've been thinking about getting one but if its not easy to use or takes too much time there's probably no point for me too :) You did a great job on these, they're adorable!!

@Allyson, I emailed ya!
@ Kristen. The machine is fairly easy to use once you get the hang of it. It was way harder than I thought learning just the basics of how to do things, the software you need to lay out designs to embroider, the supplies needed for stabilizers, how to hoop, threads, appliques etc... It's a great machine if you want to dedicate time to learning it, if you don't let me make stuff for ya :) Wait till you see the cute 4th of july shirts I am making for Hadley and Max.
