Personalized Shirts

warning: if you know me and your child is having a birthday and they are peeking over your shoulder, avert their eyes now!
You can probably tell by now, but I love my embroidery machine - I bought it used on Ebay, so the cost wasn't as outrageous as you'd imagine.  I especially love how I can quickly make a cute, personalized gift and not spend too much money.  I am always on the lookout for shirts on clearance - and you should be too!  Even if you don't go with embroidery, you can use iron-on transfers or freeze paper stenciling and voila, perfect gifts every time.  This week I've made 3 shirts - popular birthday week, I guess.

I have a question ~ I was wanting to get a machine to make items for my daughter but I have no idea where to even start. What kind of machine do you have? Any suggestions on brands/specs? Thanks

I just did a quick post on my machine - thanks for the question - -

Your embroidered shirts are getting cuter all the time! Thanks again for the idea, and once again I'll be browsing for embroidery machines...

Allyson LOVES her Star shirt! Loves it, loves it, loves it! Thanks so much. I think instead of getting my own machine, I'll just support your ever growing buisness?
