This is the first thing I have tried to embroider in 3 months.

Tired of being sick and think I can do this and can't!
Woo hoo!
I started this before xmas for my son but had problems and had to guit and now the other day I tried again.
I ended up with two small holes from thread nesting and had to cut it to get it off the machine and wasn't sure how to fix it.
Can you tell where they are?

Looks great to me too! I sure didn't find the holes either.

When I looked at this under my magnifier ( and that did not help me find the holes either) it looked like the bobbin thread may be pulling to the top in places. That might be the reason you were gettting thread nests. Try resetting the bobbin in the machine and see if that helps reduce nests.

Thank you!

Found the small holes after using the magnifiyng glas from the computer.
May be next time you use a stronger stabilizer ore use two layers of it.
Anyway, the shirt looks great and if you iron under the holes a small piece of fabric with wonder under, the tiny holes wont be bigger.

Thank you. I covered each of the holes with a heart and I had extra stabilizer and then used cloug cover after. I pleased with the way it turned out.

Oh how funny. No I can not tell where the holes are. I am glad you got to use your machine again.

Thank you.

Love the phrase. It would fit my husband to a T. Could not find the holes. I think it looks great and he will love it. I would do as dragonflyer suggested. I have also used Fraycheck along with the iron on stabilizer if the hole is tiny and close to words. Congratulations on getting back to your machine. Praying you will be feeling much better soon.

I thought the phrase was cute and he gets teased occassionally about it so when I saw rhis I figured
it fit my son!
Thanks for looking!

I hid them with the hearts!
Thanks for looking!

A bit hard to tell from the photo...depending upon where they are, you could always put a small applique over them...or back them with some iron-on stabilizer like Cloud and embroider another small design over the area...the Cloud should work well to bond over the hole and to the fabric...I have even done this on a baby onesie and it worked great!

I am thinking the holes may be behind the hearts but only a guess as really if you hadn't asked me to look I wouldn't have found anything wrong.
Hope you are feeling better.
When I am not feeling 100% and want to do some sewing I make it a couple of days project. Day one get it hooped and loaded into machine. Day two embroider or sew it. Sometimes there is a day three to finish off and put away items used. That way I feel I have achieved something for the week.

That is where they are - behind the hearts!
