Showing you how I embroider custom T-shirts on the Brother PE800 Embroidery Machine.
I used sheer no show mesh cutaway stabilizer that came in my Embroidex starter kit. While there are certainly many ways to accomplish this goal, I’m sharing the way I chose to do it and what worked for me.
I used 100% cotton T-shirts from JiffyShirts.com, prewashed them and treated with Terial Magic temporary stabilizer before hooping. This helped the fabric not to stretch.
These were a DIY project / gift for my friend and real estate agent Melanie, who I’ve been helping make videos for her new YouTube channel: Melanie Loves Tampa Bay. Check her out and show her some ❤️ if you like learning about real estate, home ownership, or want to know more about the Tampa Bay area.
You can get designs / logos digitized for embroidery from many only shops – I found one on Etsy that I am happy with and they charged about $10 per logo (I had 2) – Digitizing With Love
Excited to dive into the world of embroidery – feel free to share any tips below or requests for future videos on the Brother PE800!
