Transforming a cheap $6 IKEA Alstern bath mat by adding a personalized monogram using my Brother PE800 embroidery machine.
It was rather tricky to figure out how to hoop the bath mat, but it’s possible. In this episode, I show you the step-by-step process and tips for machine embroidery.
Monogramming is a quick, easy way to elevate simple household textiles and home decor. Great housewarming, wedding, or holiday gifts!
Because I’m *not* a sewing machine tech / expert I cannot provide 1-on-1 assistance with your machine or guide you through specific issues. Please reach out to the Brother Product Support Center.
