I wanted to embroider a polo shirt to wear at archery club events.  My machine does 4” x 4” which is fine for the design I wanted.  The challenges (for someone of my limited experience) were A)placement and B)getting a plus-size shirt under the machine without accidentally sewing over some part I didn’t want to sew.

But I did it! I took some good advice & printed the design, pinned it on the shirt and then floated it on the stabilizer. (Yes, I removed the paper, before I started to sew.) I took care to bunch up the parts that were not getting sewn, so they were not under the needle.  Here it is;

Looks very good - is everyone else going to want one now? 
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Thanks for the encouraging words.  I have since bought some big hair clips & a riser for the machine. (See machine accessories for pics.) I wanted to test them out, so I did this pajama top.
