Santa sure knows the way to my heart…through those three little letters that I call my own! From necklaces and earrings to sweatshirts, I found several monogrammed items under the tree. More importantly, I found a monogramming machine! Words cannot begin to describe how surprised I was to find such a fabulous gift.
I first learned to sew from my mother, and I’ve loved it ever since. For as long as I can remember all my Halloween costumes and sisters’ matching Easter dresses have been handmaid by my mother on our 30 year old sewing machine. Therefore, she decided it was time to upgrade our machine…and why not chose one with a monogramming capability?!
The Brother SE400 is the perfect fit for those who want a great bang for their buck. This budget-friendly sewing and embroidery machine cannot do everything, but that’s totally fine with my mother and I. Whether it’s hemming a pair of my father’s pants or adding a simple monogram to a handtowel, the Brother SE400 is perfect for us!
As the fashionista and monogram-queen of my household, I have already taken over the machine and used to to personalize anything and everything in sight. Unfortunately, the Brother SE400 did not come with any monogram fonts included, so I decided to purchase my favorites online (http://www.8clawsandapaw.com). Since then, I’ve spent all waking hours in the basement spicing up headbands, pillowcases, undies, and beyond! Keep your eye our for some DIY projects from the fashionista and may your 2015 be filled with happiness, peace, and monograms!
