First "Real" Project

So, a friend of mine thought that I was perfectly capable of completing my first "real" project on the embroidery machine.  Oh, I was so nervous.  I only have three fonts on my machine that you can use the keypad and of course they are not very fun fonts.  I searched for hours last night for fonts and a program to help me put letters together to spell a name.  I really had no idea (and I still don't) what I was doing.  I wasn't comfortable with the font that a practiced with so I settled for a flower with an "R" in the middle.  I practiced on several pieces of fabric before I finally prepared the dress on the machine and hit the start button.  It is not perfect, but I'm not sure what I did wrong.  This is what I came up with...

If anyone has any tips for using an embroidery machine, classes you can take, programs to use, websites, etc. I would appreciate the help.

  1. My niece has one and had to learn on her own. She may have some pointers. She is Haley Franklin on FB. I will suggest her as a friend to you. Also, I think Tabatha Hyde has one.
