About 3 months ago, a friend posted on Facebook that she was selling her sewing/embroidery machine. I'd been considering buying one for a while because I have a bunch of friends that make super cute things and I have a bunch of friends that are pregnant and I would love to make them cute things. So I bought it. It's a Brother SE400 and I love it! I started out trying out some simple appliques on some old onesies for a friend who is fostering a little girl. Here's some pictures of things that I've been working on. I've made LOTS of mistakes and I'm definitely not a seamstress yet, but I've been enjoying the easy appliques and I'm slowly venturing into actual sewing.
