I’ve been really busy for the last few days. Our son bought a restaurant. It seems there’s a lot of work that goes into that sort of thing. First I monogrammed some shirts. So I thought today I would show you exactly how I did that. Here’s the finished project.
First, my grandson made the logo. Then to get it digitized, I emailed to this company, who in turn took one day to digitize and get back to me.
I made a template the size of the design for placement and used a white marker to place the design right above the pocket on the black shirts.
Then I ironed polymesh cut-away stabilizer on the back of the shirt.
To hoop the shirt I put the bottom hoop underneath and on the top hoop I put the plastic guide in place to help me get the design straight.
It’s not important to center the design–I can do that after I place the hoop in the machine. But I do need to get my design lines parallel and perpendicular.
After I get the hoop in the machine I center it.
After the design is complete, cut the stabilizer off, leaving about 1/2″ around design.
VOILA! Pretty Cool, huh?
