Monogramming With The Brother Monogram Embroidery Machine
In case you are new to machine embroidering, don’t worry. You have come to the right place! This post includes all the simple steps for beginners as well. We’re going to walk you through these easy, yet exact steps!
Let’s begin right away!
What you need to get started:
There are a couple of tools you will need to make your own monograms. These include:
- A Brother monogram embroidery machine
- Any regular/curb scissors
- Stabilizer material (either cutaway, washable or tearable)
- Embroidery hoop
- Any preferred fabric material
- Preferred Threads
Step 1: Prep your machine and your design
For this step, you need to select a design. You can buy ready-made monogram designs from various sources for a reasonable price. You can even customize your own or have it especially designed. There are free designs available as well.
When you have your design ready, load it into the Brother Embroidery Machine. You will then need to edit the settings for the size of the monogram.
Then, choose the threads according to the design that you have selected and load them.
Step 2: Set up your hoop
It’s time to fit the fabric and the stabilizer into the embroidery hoop. The stabilizer prevents the material from curling up while sewing.
Make sure the part of the fabric which you want the monogram to be is on the center of the hoop (mark it with chalk, if you must) so that it will be easier for you to perform the sewing.
Now set the hoop into the machine’s sewing area while making sure the needle points at the center of the hoop where you have marked it. Remember to clear the space where the hoop needs to be so that the sewing will go on smoothly.
Tip: Check out our choices of home embroidery machines with a large hoop.
Step 3: Start sewing!
This is the fun part for any embroiderer – watching the monogram come to life!
When you are content with the position of the hoop, start the machine. And that’s it. You don’t have to do anything else except for observing the process, of course.
(Note: The sewing should be done on the side where the fabric is, while the stabilizer faces downwards).
Step 4: Remove the hoop
When the sewing process is done, loosen the hoop and take out your fabric. Clear away the excess stabilizer and threads.
And there you have it – your very own embroidered monogram!
We hope this short guide has helped you get more insights about embroidering your own monograms in one way or the other. The process isn’t really that hard when you have reached the hang of it. After all, practice makes perfect, right?
Well, we wish you good luck on your embroidery journey!
See you again soon.
